    Yeah, I don't try to save them all. But I wanted this batch. After these guys I'll let them all get eaten. It is fun to watch the other fish hunt.

    Guppy too Old to Breed?

    I have a guppy that I bred and raised myself. She came from a litter of 8 and is the last of her brood. As luck would have it, only females survived the fry stage, so she never bred. She’s about...

    Those aren’t bloodworms. Probably tubifex or blackworms. Bloodworms are midge larvae and emerge as flies in to breed. Unless your home has been swarming with gnat-like flies, they are aquatic...

    Yes, I was considering water hardness as a possible culprit.

    Actually there’s no water movement whatsoever. It’s a Walstad setup so it only uses plants for filtration.

    Distilled Water as Alternative to RO

    R.I.P. Little Girl

    My favorite betta “Little Girl” died today. I had her since January. Somehow she managed to jump two inches out of her aquarium while I was at work. When I noticed that she was missing I looked...

    Fishmog, let me speak some heresy.
    First, 6.5 gallons is plenty of space for a fish that tops out at 2.5-3 inches.

    If it was grown emmersed, it will take some time to adjust to aquatic life. It may even melt similarly to a crypt. Give it some time and be patient for the first 4-6 weeks. Eventually it’ll start...
