Well, now I am down to two swordtails. I read that Rio Otapas were good at jumping, but I did not expect hatcetfish-type jumping. It looks like I should have, because one of my females managed to...

But then how would I procrastinate the rescape?

But seriously, maybe I will put them in my other tank for a few days.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Any idea how long it will take to get them to a decent size? Decent size = won't fit in the mouth of a Bolivian Ram. I was planning to do a pretty big rescape of this tank soon but I've...

This is not a great picture, but it's the best one I have right now. I took this about 10 minutes after I put them in the tank for the first time. You can see one of the females clearly on the left...

Feeding Corydoras Hastatus Fry

I bought three juvenile corydoras hastatus at a swap meet today because I wanted to add to my existing school. The vendor had them in a baggie with some moss and since they were juvies I couldn't see...

That's a pretty fish, too!

I think the only solution is for me to find space for a much larger new tank. Then I can have rainbow fish and cichlids.

Oh yeah? What apistos would like moderately hard water with a fair amount of current and lots of tetra companions? I don't know anything about them, and there are just so many varieties. Most of the...

So far gremlins and flying seem like the most likely explanations. I'm beginning to regret the ghost shrimp.

Traveling Ghost Shrimp

I have two 30 gallons aquariums. One of them has ghost shrimp. In fact, it has way too many ghost shrimp, I'm going to have to find a pet store to take half of them soon. The second tank does not...

I don't feel like otos will disturb plants, if that is your concern. Mine spend their time attached to the tank glass, or the wood, or the food.

"Flushing" is a figure of speech. I have never euthanized a healthy animal.

He's awfully pretty, with his super long, red-banded whiskers. He was actually my favorite, along with the weirdly-dark shrimp. But now I'm so pissed that he killed otos that I almost flushed him for...

Mystery (whisker?) shrimp maybe attacking Otos?

I got five ghost shrimp from Petsmart a few months ago, under the mistaken impression that they do not breed in fresh water. Turns out they totally do, so now I have about 15-20 ghost shrimp of...
