The rainbow stiphodon variety. I think you're right, though. I've recently added an circulation pump to help combat the algae. I'm hoping the gobies will prefer that current to the one beneath the...

So, after observing the tank for a on and off this morning to make sure the goby is really ok (aside from a red spot on his side which could have been my handwork when I retrieved him from the bowl),...

I checked on my little adventurer this morning and he's back to his old fishy ways. Like nothing even happened, save my own trauma.:rolleyes:



I'm familiar with this concept since I've been...

He's safe!

Welp, I got him out and he's alive, for the time being. I decided to give him a little time alone in the bowl with the lights out while I went to the gym. When I returned, he was nowhere to be...

Help! Tossed the fish out with the waste-water

So, one of my gobies did another one of his disappearing acts. He vanished last night, but I saw some sand displaced around some of the plants, so I figured he was back to his tunnel-digging ways. ...

I refreshed my DIY C02 after a cleaning, went away for a weekend, and came back to this:

What's interesting is the stock in the store was sharing a tank with gouramis. I've had a few of those in the past and they generally like the temp around 80 (lost one from keeping it in a bowl with...

Goby has reappeared

And... it's back! No idea where it went, but I looked in the tank this evening and there it was, swimming around with its mate. Stomach looks a little concave, so wherever it was, it wasn't eating....

I read different things about this, with some sources saying algae is a necessity while others state live foods are best. I crush snails on a regular basis for the other fish; might the goby enjoy...

I'd argue it depends on the tetra. Once upon a time I had five serpaes in this tank. Now I only have one. I came across the white skirts on sale and knowing my lone serpae isn't particularly...

Yes, they're the stiphodons. There's currently plenty of algae in the tank. My tank is 5+ years old. Can't find him anywhere and the other one is behaving normally.

Goby behavior

I purchased two "rainbow gobies" from Petsmart on friday. I wish I would have done so years ago; they are some entertaining little fellas. Unfortunately, I haven't seen the smaller of the two since...

Several discoveries

Schultz aquatic soil = low in nutrients and compactness, I have learned. Also, chelated fertilizers are practically superficial to rooted plants. Lastly, low-tech plants aren't, necessarily. I've...

10 gal reboot

New bulb, new pics

I like the new bulb so much I decided to take more pics. An Aquaglo T8 15 watter this time. It's new, it's bright, and it highlights all the nasty algae. But perhaps that's a good thing.
