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...

Two white skirts and a serpae. I hope he's still in there, somewhere.

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...

I'm glad I'm not alone in my frustration, tmann51. I keep trying to remember what I did nearly a year ago to get the plants going. I can't recall much else other than Co2 being very helpful, and I...

10 gal reboot

New terrariums - would like some input

Hi there,

Spotted some humidity-loving plants on clearance at Lowe's last weekend and decided to try my hand at two terrariums (because it was difficult to find a container large enough to fit...

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.

After nearly forgetting I'd started a tank journal, here's some updates for anyone who's interested:

LOTS of blue-green algae

Long time, no visit, but I have an emergency. I have a 10 gallon low-light set up (19w flourescent bulb, 10-12 hrs photoperiod) w/ five minnows, five pygmy cories and an oto. Plant stock is hygro,...

New plants giving me a headache

Here's hoping you're right, b/c the sick oto just gave up the ghost, today. The other looks fine. Let's hope he can live on his own for awhile, at least.

Thanks, all, for the help.

I guess my next question should be: how long can an (healthy) oto survive without a friend? Because I don't think the little guy is going to make it.
