Thanks for the suggestions! I'll look into those.

ErtyJr: We're actually looking for something that looks completely different than white clouds. We have a lot of white clouds right now :wink:

Fish suggestions for a 20 high

Hi all,

I've got a 20 gallon (high) currently inhabited by one female betta and 5 white clouds. They have no issues getting along. My husband would like to add something 'more interesting'. Anyone...

Time for a very late update on this tank. It's had a few changes: I added some more crypts, moved my firebelly newts and white clouds in, and the land plants have gotten a little crazy. You can't...

Long overdue update on this tank. It's gotten quite a bit more overgrown since the last pictures. Still very low tech - I just trim it every few months.

Thanks all!

I know the tads eat algae, but they won't touch the hair algae. My dad does feed them pretty often - boiled greens.

The lilies are hardy because they survive the winters. The only...

Thanks for the suggestions.

I think he's tried the barley straw trick without much success. I think we'll try more and different floaters. Just wondering how he managed to kill the water hyacinth...

Suggestions for a high-altitude pond?

These questions are actually for my father, who has a group of three ponds in his yard in Colorado. Basically, he'd like to manage these ponds as naturally as possible, but he's been having some...

These guys should be very easy to breed. Just by chance, you actually seem to have one of the things that helps a lot: a 'dance floor'. This species really likes to have a small area clear of plants...

I might separate him so I could monitor how much he's eating, but at this point I don't think the other newts are going to be affected. I'm sure they have parasites, too, but they are probably...

It's most likely a high parasite load. Wild caught animals are really dragged down by these. I've never had to dose one of mine with meds, so I don't have any good advice for that. I would try...

Some Petsmarts don't carry them. Our local one does, though. I'm sure it's just up to the individual store manager.

Newts in the planted tank

I thought I would make this thread because I see a lot of people keeping newts in their aquaria, but not always in appropriate conditions for the newts. They can make fun, interesting, and very...

I don't think this tank could have enough water depth for a fully aquatic newt like a fire belly or Eastern. Marbled salamanders you would probably never see because they are so shy.

What's the water temp right now? Sometimes they need sustained cooler temps (into the low 60s) to maintain breeding dress and to get the females interested. Also, young males will sort of 'try out'...

Agreed - don't put anything super rare or expensive in there. I have a bunch of different kinds - not sure what species - but nothing that cost more than $6 or so at my LFS.

You might have better luck in the 'shrimp and other invertebrates' section, since crabs are neither reptiles nor amphibians :redface:
