by Fishhook on 07-08-2014 at 03:59 PM
sourced from:
Note this article on reflects study done while fishing and if the hook results in pain to the fish.

For years a fight has raged over whether angling is a cruel sport, and now researchers have waded into the debate by claiming that fish cannot feel pain.A study has found that, even when caught on a hook and wriggling, the fish is impervious to pain because it does not have the necessary brain power.

Elsa the Ice Betta moved up to a 5.5g today

Elsa and Gary (the apple ivory snail) got a new home during their water change today. They went from a 3.5 Bow front tank to 5.5G tank.

The Star of the Tank

by Fishhook on 07-01-2014 at 08:33 PM
After returning the Tetras, I exchanged them for the peaceful Dwarf Cobalt Blue (or Powder Blue) Gourami.

He is now the centerpiece of the tank and compliments the gold rasboras nicely.

Dwarf Gourami: Trichogaster lalius

A usually peaceful and popular aquarium fish, the Dwarf Gourami should be kept with other non-aggressive fish if stocked in a community tank.
Like the popular Betta, they are also considered Labyrinth fish, meaning they can breathe atmospheric air.

Minimum Tank Size: 10 Gallons

Widely distributed through Pakistan, northern India and Bangladesh.
