I agree, the fish might be sick either from the water in the tank or maybe she's lonely. How many other fish do you have in your tank? And how many more Angels? I have 23 Angels in my 125g tank,...

Yes, it is exciting. I took a picture of her last night; I wish there were more. Happy 4th of July!

Baby on board!

:fish:Something incredible happened last night.

As I mentioned before, there are way too many MT snails in the tank. I shipped 40 of them to Texas on Monday, and amazingly they all survived the...

Thank you!

Thanks! Though I spent quite some time figuring out how the driftwood should be placed, I think it worth it. When I received the wood I built a very nice "tree" in the middle of the living room...

As of June 28th

Today is 'water change' day. Hooray! As you can see, all MTS survived and they keep multiplying like crazy. Every now and then a giant one shows up... The fish were pretty shy today. Anyhow, this is...

I know that Angels would eat anything that fits in their mouth. I've seen one biting on a snail once but it spit it out, probably wasn't very tasty. They do 'attack' the live blood worms though, so I...

Thanks for reading the whole thing through! There'll be new pics next week once I finish arranging the driftwood and rocks in the tank. When one of the Swordtails died I got a little scared too...

It's been a while since my last posting, but I've been busy these weeks. It certainly doesn't mean that I neglected my fish tank and its inhabitants. Long story short: I got the driftwood, soaked it,...

1 red swordtail - RIP

A few days ago one of the swordtails died :( I couldn't tell what had caused its death; I tested the water but ammonia, nitrite and nitrate were all 0; every fish ate the same food. This fish looked...

How many kinds of plants do you have in there? If you don't mind taking a couple of pics, I'd be curious to see how the tank looks like right now. And how is the pleco doing? Does it help cleaning...

More fish

Yesterday I got more fish :hihi:

I doubled the number of neons, 12, plus 3 phantom and 3 head and tail light tetras. Everybody is doing fine, eating well. Though small fish, I was expecting the...

He's the man! I mean, he's the breeder!

Couple of days ago I spoke with the Discus breeder, who invited me to check his hatchery / show room out. We couldn't set up an appointment yet because of our availability. If everything goes right I...

Thanks, I'm happy too. The driftwood is on its way, good news. Meanwhile I found a used RO unit on sale. Either that or CO2. But I'd rather say both, one step at a time.

Today I added 6 Neon Tetras and 3 Swordtails (1 male, 2 females) after I changed the water and did a big cleaning. Scrubbing off the brown algae wasn't fun at all especially from the plants. I also...

Test Kit

Got a freshwater test kit today and gave it a try. Colors on the picture are a bit different than in reality. Anyhow, I did 5 tests: pH, higher pH (because the regular pH was off the chart), ammonia,...

That's exactly what happened when I got my 6 Angels. The lady was chasing this black one for a good half minute. I didn't want to be rude or impolite so I told her that I've changed my mind and saw...

Still very nice and clean! I've found Boesemani rainbows at the LFS but they were in a very strange tank for some reason. By strange I mean there was a mixture of (extra large) Angels, Florida gears,...

Mts

MTS has arrived today and after a quick rinse I added them to the tank. I hope they have a big appetite and will clean up the diatoms.

Disaster

Algae, algae, algae. Didn't change the water today, fed the Angels once with very small amount of blood worms and pellets and cleaned the glass with that floating magnetic algae scraper. The water...

With cats it's either their way or no way at all. They are independent creatures and the equation is simple: feed me and leave me alone. We have both cats and dogs, and I know as a fact that a cat...

Yes, I agree, I don't like them either although the garlic butter sauce with parsley and black pepper sounds good (French escargot) :D

But seriously, I'm okay with snails, they are harmless...
