    My glossostigma, which has struggled in an area too shaded by taller stem plants, has adapted by sending runners forward off the soil substrate into the open sand where it's less shaded at the front of the tank. It's been spreading like crazy to the front glass and to the right, but is already...

    My husband and I went through a traumatic tank cycle-crash a few weeks ago with our 125 g. Long story short, after a big water change the tank's nitrite level spiked, and despite doing a 2nd water change immediately, the next morning we woke up to find most of the small fish gasping at the...

    I'm wondering if SAEs could tolerate living in a discus tank; mainly because the tank is kept around 82 or 83 degrees (F). The tank is a moderately planted 125g and contains 8 discus. I love SAEs and keep several in my 30g and 75g, but both of those tanks are kept around 78 to 79 degrees for...

    Back from hiatus. I know I am doing the unconventional way of growing Discus: planted, not bare-bottomed and semi-Walstad. Also I got a couple with stunted growth and what might be, but hopefully not, a runt (Blue Diamond in the photo). I also have a quite a snail infestation - most likely due...
