yup. today is the day my friend is driving me to the LFS. After endlessly mulling it over, and watching my fish interact in the tank this week, I think I have decided to at least try it. If its not...

i will def look into super reds after work today. are female bristlenoses any less territorial?
should also be noted when switching the substrate I am adding even more driftwood caves/hidey...

also planning on looking into for the clown loaches' rehoming option: the california Academy of Sciences here in SF has a very large tank in their cafe area that has a bunch of full grown clown...

not crazy about otos or snails in general.. the suggestions are very much appreciated tho!
other ideas im tossing around: get an albino bristlenose, maybe that would really seem diff enough to...

here is a pic of the green hair algae and you can kind of see the algae on the back pane- not so great, but you get an idea, near the tetra swimming by...

p.s. it should also be noted that plecos are pretty much my all time favourite type of FW fish, in general

60 gallons. 4 feet long & tall. definite differing water column levels that i consider, bottom, middle, and top. currently inhabited by 17 cardinal tetras, 5 neon tetras, 2 clown loaches, and one...

So... I am going to be re-doing the substrate in my tank and getting a bristlenose pleco to replace my common pleco that passed a lil over a month or so ago...
and I am thinking.. it...

thanks so much for the info! much appreciated. my tank is 60 gallons, I am quite aware of how large the loaches can get. If I do end up having to rehome them, it won't be for quite awhile, at least....

oh! another Q! how would this sort of substrate affect my normal gravel vacuuming??
05-30-2014, 03:33 AM
I am likely going to switch out my regular gravel substrate for something more plant friendly. Looking at the CaribSea Eco, as my post title implies. I did scan over the sticky on...
things are still a lil cloudy in there right now, but seems to be settling. I need to do a water test, didnt even do one, just knew it needed action! I have to dash to get to work ontime today, let...
also, filter is working fine.
just did another 25% wc cuz I knew I would not be able to sleep otherwise. Now im frantic with lack of confidence regarding issues of should I add more stress zyme & stress coat, or leave them out...
Okay. so I had my battle with ich that my previous post went into detail about. Today was day 4 with no new white spots on the fishes, so I went ahead and did the WC that I had postponed (by 2 days)...

also, tough ich buggers, yes? The heat did not seem to speed up their life cycle at all, it took pretty much a week exactly for all of the spots to finally fall off. Also, they did not perish with...
05-14-2014, 06:38 PM
UPDATE! It's been over 48 hours and no white spots on fishes! Crossing all of my fins in hopes that those suckers will DIE this time around with the salt.
I am actually putting off cleaning the...

sorry to hear about your L183 :( so sad to lose the fishes. So many non fish people don't understand. "its just a FISH." yeah, one that you've cared for & watched over & fussed about & adored &...
05-08-2014, 04:26 AM
cool, I will look into that. Do you know if it is safe for clown loaches, too??? Thank you!

33848 my pleco, healthy & enjoying the driftwood, barely 3 weeks ago. RIP lil guy <3 :(

added 1/4 of salt to new aquarium water... will add another 1/4 cup tmrw, and so on, until I reach 1 tsp/gal. (so over the course of 5 days total) Wish me luck, folks! And anyone else with advice,...

oh, also, I have an 18" bubble wand in the back of the tank, a lil skeleton pirate bubbling dude in the middle, (only non natural decor I have) and dropped the water level about an inch some my HOB...

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I know quarantining is the best thing to do, but I don't have room for another tank. The LFS I *usually* go to quarantines for 2 weeks before selling to the public as a...

Hi there. I've had neon tetras before and black neons before. I had my school of black neons for over 1.5 years before they died in a nasty ich infestations about 2 months ago. I lost all of my...
