    My Dog Tore Up My Java Moss!

    What can I do for it? Even if it survives, will it still be useful for anything tankscaping-wise? She hates water, but was so desperate to tear my poor moss that she stuck her nose in it anyway to steal it and then stood wagging her tail at me and begging for a bone in the midst of all the...

    Is anyone else participating in this year's April Camp NaNoWriMo?  What are your word count goals? What are you writing about?

    Mutilated Bullfrog Tadpole

    Hi all! You probably know I've rescued some tadpoles and feeder fish, and some people here were kind enough to ID them both for me. I sent off an email to the WWM Crew asking for advice; I'll post it here:   Then, of course, Jack decides to rip off half the tail of one tadpole. I separated them...

    Rescued An Adorable Cichlid!

    Sorry, I just had to do it. I saw an ADORABLE cichlid in a tiny tank teeming with feeder fish, both alive and dead (he was maybe 1.5" long and the biggest fish in there, and some sort of Apistogramma, I'm nearly sure) and couldn't stand the thought of him getting eaten, so shoot me, I bought the...

    Hello! My parents are planning ANOTHER move. Thankfully this time it won't be international, but it will apparently involve a plane ride.

A couple days ago she started looking really fat and square so naturally I thought she was about to pop and redoubled my vigilance to catch any fry. Then I saw something orange (same shade as...

    Picked Up A Freshwater Pipefish! (Feeding)

    Hello all! The father of one of my friends owns a small pet shop (mostly fish) near my house, and they were selling pipefish. Since my veterinarian uncle assured me that they can be trained to eat flake (and my friend said hers did), today she brought me a tiny pipefish, max 2.5" long (probably...

    Chat Room Won't Load For Me

    It doesn't matter what browser I use. I can see who's there, but the chat window stays on "Please wait while we load the chat room" and nothing loads. I can send chats, but not see others' chats, and I am unsure whether others can see my chats. What's going on? LOL :P

    Hello! A week or so ago I bought three 2" Paraibo Blushing angelfish (the smallest one has black marbling on his fins and head). They seemed fine until three days later when the small one began hiding at the bottom behind plants. He was still eating though and I assumed he was fine. Now he looks...

    Angelfish Genetics

    Hi! I just got three small Angelfish. They were supposed to be Platinum, but the lady got me what she calls 'pearlscale'...problem is they are a semi transparent (or at least translucent) shiny white, and the fact that I can see their spine annoys me. I know Platinums are not transparent and...
