    I have 10 Ocelot Danios I need to rehome. They are a couple of years old. I would like $15 for the school. I can't get a decent picture but they look like this: http://bolsadepano.org/img/thumb/fish_breeds_information_and_pictures_of.jpg They school quite well for me and are very hardy. I...
  3. Tank Journals
    Hi all, just got into planted tanks recently with a friends old marineland 5 gallon hex tank. After an initial round of bad guppies we've hit a nice balanced, vibrant tank that lives atop our desks at grad school. It's been about of month with the current fish and plants and everyone seems...

    So got this book today :) seems good but got a question.... Danio erythrmicron..... it describes as not a shoaling fish. Quote "See information for D.choprae, but not a schooling fish and no minimum aquarium length." Everywhere I see on the web say about keeping a group of 6+ So is...

    Hello everyone! So I purchased some Microdevario kubotai for a 10 gal riparium, and at the LFS, I was told that the one little silver one I got was a female. Cut to two months later, she's more than twice the size of the rest of them, she's gotten some mild striping, and she's been in a panic...

    Recently managed to purchase 4 Emerald Dwarf Rasbora's (yet, classified as Danio's?) from my LFS in the hope they shoal with the 7 CPD's in my tank. Why are these fish under different Genus'? They're nice looking fish, especially the males colour palette - appearing to be blue, not green? They...

    Hey guys, I have a 10 gallon tank that I just picked up and I'm wanting to make it a planted tank with just one species of fish and possibly some shrimp. I've been stuck on this fish for a while because I think they look really cool and they seem to be a good size for a smaller tank. They have...

    Alright, so I'm only in the planning stages of my 5 gallon planted nano tank. I hope I don't overwhelm anyone with my mass of questions but I refuse to build a tank without doing my homework first and creating the best possible environment for the plants and fish. Just for reference, I'm...

    I've been running a 18g planted tank housing 4 celestial pearl danios, a few (can never really give an exact number) cherry and amano shrimp - and so far so good. It's been playing on my mind to get a dwarf or honey gourami but reading a few horror stories about gouramis switching and attacking...

    Colo Spgs-I'm falling into fish breeding. About a month ago I setup an Amazonian bio type and now I'm getting spawns constantly. My discus have about 100 eggs and I have approximately 250 free swimming zebra danios'. If anyone is interested in colorado springs or near by please message me. And...

    I added Moustached and Hatchets in with my Giant Danios. Mastached get the largest at 6 inchs. I love them I can keep shrimp with them. I got 2 Blue Tetras in there I keep an eye on them I had 4 fish die. Somebody attacked them and I think it's the Blue tetra's.

    Kept three zebra danio in this 2 gal for not even a week a little while back. Was peeking in there today, trying to look for the shrimp I put in there, when instead I found this little bugger! A single little fry! The parents are danio that I accidentally bred and purposefully raised...

    So... i had a jumper recently and sadly my dog found the little guy! The fish got clawed and stomped a little bit.. the guy is swimming around quite happily though, eating and swimming with the group. My biggest thing is with his injuries what are the prospects for hurt fish? Hes just today...

    So I've got 6 Zebras in my 45g, and they all eat well, but one eats TOO well. She'll(I assume she's a female, because of her shape, not trying to be sexist:icon_redf) finish up whatever I'm feeding, flake, bloodworm, or tubifex, but then she'll start in on the algae wafers I put in for the...
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So yesterday, I picked up 3 medium size Ghost shrimp, and the lady accidentally got a really tiny guy in the bag and gave him to me for free. Two of the larger ones were berried already(darkish, green spotty eggs) but today I can only see one of the larger ones, with no berries. I don't have a...

    I've had these two Danios for a few months now and at first, they were both about the same size. I've only recently noticed that one of my danios has a bloated stomach. Is this because she's pregnant? I don't even know how to sexe them (which one's female/male). I currently have a 10g tank with...

  18. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello. I hope this is the right forum to introduce myself. I have been reading this forums for a long time, and decided to finally post. For almost two years I have kept a Betta, bred and raised by my wife, in a 2 gallon on my desk, with a bunch of ferns, moss and assorted cuttings. As low...
