Ok I'll remember that
thanks for your input
i think it was buried in sand at the LFS
i have since pulled it apart a bit and elastic banded it to driftwood with the roots and rhizome showing. is it likely the leaves will bounce back?
I did wipe it down a bit, but it seems to remain that frosty look to it.
The plants have only been in for a week, so it's not that telling yet. However I think I bought java fern that was browning...
i have a AR380 aquaone tank, and a 11watt PL aqua one bulb. (example if you dont know the brand http://www.mypetwarehouse.com.au/AQUA-ONE-AR380-AQUARIUM-34L-38X25X46CM-SILVER-p-7253)
i might have to request these into my lfs
don't think they had pygmys last time i went...
but yes i am more inclined to have bottom feeders just to keep the betta roaming freely
just quickly on the pygmy cories... the tank has gravel substrate. is this a big no-no for cories?
I am starting up a 10 gallon again after a couple of years break
after the tank is cycled, I intend to have a male betta centerpiece fish, and most likely bottom feeders....
I was just interested to hear opinions and personal experience of whether bettas like having a densely planted/decorated tank or if they enjoy more open space to roam.
don't think its a crack just a scratch.
do the snails eat cuttlebone or does it leach calcium or something into the water?
and some more. P.S am i right the snails are golden apples?
some of the pics aren't great, but until i get a better camera it will have to do. enjoy!:22:
yes so true, here in australia some of the treatment given to bettas in shops is terrible.
I mean i can sort of understand needing to keep the bettas in smaller areas for sale/space, but i saw a...
after my said news of my old betta passing from what i think was old age,
new life has begun!
a new young male betta and 2 what i believe are golden apple snails for my ten...
i have heard their average lifespan is around 2 years and i had had him for a little over a year, and he was fully grown when i bought him, so i can't actually tell how old he was.
ah well, jsut...
well my good ol betta passed away last night very suddenly.
he was fine day before last, but yesterday was listless and frequently(more than usual) sucking air from the surface.

i have had my filter media for over 6 months occasionally rinsing the media in tank water and everything is fine for me.
if you throw old media and chuck in a new one the bacteria has to regrow....
wouldnt that make the medicine less effective?
and it does have a HOB filter with 250l/minute flow rate and supposedly can be used for aquariums over 10 gallon.
if im dosing with meds, should i be stopping WC's???
i think my tap ph has jumped up a bit,
looks around 7.4-7.6
what can be done to drop that down a bit?
p.s. Betta is still going half-decent. Hiding in his cave but will swim out...
im just slightly worried there may be a additive that may be harmful.
i have used it before and it seems to be fine though.
I hear of feeding finely chopped garlic to fish.
It doesn't have to be fresh garlic does it? can it be diced garlic in a jar?
if so does soaking pellets/granules etc in some of teh diced...
Just a run through of the last couple of days,
I noticed my males fins, specifically top/dorsal? fin have deteriorated and then he was a bit lame hiding in his cave for long periods...

im not sure if this would work, but maybe squeezing together 1 small bit of pea with a small bit of garlic, so it becomes more appetising perhaps?
if the fish take it, i guess it could work as a...
and that males can't stay together:hmm3grin2orange:
nice fish u got there
