    Search Problems

    sometimes when I search for my own name to get to posts I've commented in it says that I haven't read posts that I have in fact read.

    Are You Bored

    I was walking by my 55 a few minutes ago and one of my lavender mystery snails was crusing along the top of the glass at the edge of the water. I wondered if I could get him to cruise over my finger so I stuck it on the glass a little bit in front of him. He cruised right up to my finger and...

    Gambusia Affinis

    Anyone Ever Kept A Wolf Spider?

    I have a very large one about the size of my palm in an old cracked 5 gallon. I found another today...very small in comparison around 1/3 the size. I'm wondering if I could put them together? Would two females fight? How can I tell if the new one is Male or female. I'd hate to have spiderlings.

    Internal Fluidized Sand Bed

    I have an idea for an internal "sponge" filter. For examples sake let's say we are working with a plastic fish food container. Cut a bunch of small holes in the top of the filter...then cut four small holes around the outside near the bottom... next cut a hole the size of some standard air...

    About a week ago I noticed that my ten gallon was warmer than it usually is and that my jelly wasn't very active at all. I checked the temperature and it was well over 90 degrees farhenheit. Apparently I knocked the heater knob over and didn't notice it for god knows how long. I turned it...

    How Do People Feel About People Adding To Pins.

    I read through the compendium of sand topic on changing from gravel to sand today and it seemed to be lacking any instruction on how to go about changing from gravel to sand. Since I had just finished instructing someone on how to go about this I took the liberty of copying and pasting my...
