    Update on the boas, one of each pair (both females, oddly) have shed now, a week apart. The female of the newer pair was expected, seller told me she was getting ready, but the other caught me by...

    Sadly, it makes sense, more demand for the fish would make farming and releasing some back into the wild more economically viable.

    Pull the impeller shaft out (needlenose pliers work well) and clean the impeller well, also check the shaft for wear. The impeller shaft is the first thing to wear out, sometimes the impeller will be...

    Angelfish would probably mix, their body shape is so different that other cichlids don't usually see them as direct competition. Otherwise, schooling fish like tetras or barbs would be a good bet.

    Poret foam makes an awesome tank divider, as well as doing double duty as a matternfilter.

    New ones arrived last week, same size as the first pair but a littler more red color overall. Set them up in a 38 with the same arrangement as the 55. The female was in shed, but I offered the new...

    Actually adding 5-6 more of the chain loaches would be better than kuhli's, you'd never see those at all. I have a similar issue with the dozen+ mixed Synodontis petricola and lucipinnis in my 125,...

    With reverse-flow setups it was in the tank for several years before I moved the gravel, and never got visibly dirty. The powerhead prefilters collected loose debris, and had to be cleaned out every...

    I used UG filters for many years, found that the flat plates aren't nearly as good as the Penn Plax Undertow plates. I ran aquaclear 70 or 110 hob filters on one lift tube for each plate, and debris...

    I find it ironic that so many people set up hillstream tanks with very strong water flow for Sewellia species, and they will spawn in warmer water with only an air-driven sponge filter. I had a group...

    Gold barbs don't grow very large, and while more space would be preferable they aren't likely to kill each other (or anything else) in a small tank.

    Akysis catfish are well suited to unheated tanks, do well alone or in groups, and while they will eat small fry they don't grow very large at all. Newborn livebearer fry are near the upper end of...

    Looks like a really ineffective filtration setup, you'd be much better off with an aquaclear 30 hob filter. Also, goldfish are cooler water fish that don't mix well with "tropical" fish. Not to...

    I've used silk plants for floral arrangements in aquariums for years w/out any problems. The wire inside the plastic stems will eventually rust, but it's harmless. If you want artificial aquatic...

    These boas are on the smaller side, doubt the female will grow to more than 8', the male likely 6-7'. They like it warm, around 82-84 is their comfort zone, but otherwise not too difficult to...

    The Sumbu dwarfs are pretty rare in the hobby, and not a good species for small tanks. You can keep/breed an established pair of Julies or N. buescheri in that size tank, but it's too small to grow...

    Did they ever raise any fry, or did they keep losing the spawns and trying again? I've kept African, CA, and SA cichlids and have never seen a pair keep spawning that long. However, I do tend to move...

    Cichlid pairs will usually spawn a number of times in succession then take a break for a couple months. Same with BN pleco's.

    Territorial response to the camera, I've seen big flowerhorns that would ram the glass or even jump out of the tank if someone got close.
