    Hi there! I'm Mimi

    I'm Mimi. I USED TO kinda view fishies as living decor BUT after a few decades of keeping them, I look at my aquatic babies just the same as my fur babies. ... even right there, behind my Epilepsy Service Dog. I can even pet them, kiss them through the glass and hand feed them. I currently...

    Red Devil info please!

    I purchased what I thought was a yellow lab from petsmart few months ago and recently it's gotten much bigger than my 6 inch parrot fish and started bullying her. My parrot fish is currently in a hospital tank because her fin is injured. I posted the ad on kijiji and plenty of people inquired. I...

    Sexing GBR's

    Picked up a pair of GBR's and was wondering if anyone else can confirm the sex of them. I did spend some time taking a look at both of them and think I have both a male and female. The supposed female holds the back of the tank and they both seem to get into a "fight" when they see each other...

    Tank build time

    Hey all, I'm going to build a tank with my dad, custom. 150+ gallons. Was wondering what dimensions you all thought would be optimal, and any other hardware/material suggestions. Stock would be an oscar, some keyholes, and maybe a few firemouths. A green/red terror or dempesy would be nice if we...

    Thinking of starting a cichlid tank... In a 100 litre?

    Hi I have a spare tank which I am thinking of having a cichlid only set up consisting of maybe a tropheus duboisi, julidochromis and maybe a couple labidchromis. I'd be happy with just 3 or 4 fish in there to not overstock it. Main question is.. Although small as juvenile and no worry of...

    Can I treat for fungus with a holding female?

    I’ll start with TLDR: -Can I use an anti fungal treatment with a currently mouth brooding female, and clown loaches and a pleco? -Can I also use salt with these species to enhance treatment? -Should I just improve water quality and see if the small amount of fungus on one fish goes away...
