Yeah, I think he is biting his tail. I'll go see him in the morning and more little bits will be missing. I haven't actually seen him do it, but his tail had naturally black edges with just those two...
You can see glare, but this is the best one I've got so far.
I've discovered a good way to find water spots on the glass.
His Tank. There will be more plants...
My second tank finally finished cycling. After putting in a Synodontis Cat from the bigger tank, I headed to the LFS to look at Bettas. What did I find when I got there? A sales associate putting out...
I'll go a little scientific for you.
Wattage is an energy measurement. (Amps x Voltage = Watts)
Lumens is a light output measurement. This is a great resource comparing lightbulbs.

So the Largest Syno (now named FatCat) was tricked into coming out and getting her picture taken. She tried to get me back by coming out, picking up a pellet and carrying it off to her hidey hole. I...

I know, The loaches are my mother's. I am planning a large tank and have a second small tank doing a fishless cycle right now. I could've killed the lady at Aquarium Adventure. I brought my mother in...
These are my Tetras. The 3 in the front are boys, while the 2 in the back are girls. You can see the difference in the silhouette. Sorry about the blurry largeness. You can see more pics of them in...
I wouldn't even think of getting rid of fish, I'm just gonna get them a bigger tank! (The Syno cats are going to need more room as they get bigger as well.)
I know the loaches are social, but they...
So yesterday all 4 of my female GloFish Tetras (the genetically engineered fluorescent Black skirts) were gravid. The 3 boys were chasing them allllll around the tank, having a grand ole time. I had...

The larger syno was lurking. I was sitting halfway across the room when I noticed she was out. I took these from about 10 feet away.

I was reading on planted tank that Amazon swords grow differently depending on the water level. Your pictures look like the plant has fat short leaves with long stems. The plant will grow long skinny...

That first pic of the bigger one has the reflection of an orange plastic jewel that is in the tank. It made it look like the middle of the fish was lighter. The third pic of her I was able to get a...

The lighter one.
The small one. (I couldn't get a better picture of him. He kept darting into the rock.)

Ok, so I was trying to take pics of the one fish that isn't all that shy, when I realized the shy ones had appeared in the corners of the tank. thumbs2:
The big one. (In the corner of the tank;...

I got these at Meijer. They were so cute, I couldn't leave them there.
The LFS I went to compare fish to is Aquarium Adventure, in Columbus, OH. I would think their upside down catfish would be...

I went and looked at upside down catfish at the LFS. The ones that were the same size as mine looked nothing like my fish.
OK so after bunches of water changes. I got ammonia and nitrites down to .25, with nitrates at about 10. It's been 3 days of testing and ammonia dropped to zero and nitrites are staying low. First...

That's not to say, the two in the pics might be 2 different types of fish. Also, probably more accurate to let them grow up before trying to nail down exactly which ones they are. But at least I will...

The pictures are bad on my end, but they aren't spotted on the front half, the dark rings are all across the body. And the one that is bigger is getting darker, the front half of her is almost black....

Huh, I was looking in the cory pages. Could possibly be Synodontis Comoensis juvenile? Rare, but the bigger of the three has turned half black. It's part of the reason I am trying to figure out what...

Oh, as far as size. That is the lid to my API test kit they are in (for the minute it took to get pics of them). So about 1.5 inches long. There is a third, the same as the darker of the two, that is...

I bought these at Meijer. They were sold as Sterbas corys. I don't think they are Sterbas corys. Can anyone ID them?
OK. I did 2 50% water changes: one last night and one this morning. I did not add the PH down this time. I am going to do another tonight.
New water test:
PH : 7.0
Ammonia : 2.0 PPM
Oh, temperature is 78F and I have 3 plants, a micro sword, an amazon sword, and a dwarf onion.
OK, I have been doing fish in cycling for 2 months now. My nitrogen cycling has started, but I have ammonia still showing up in testing. What could cause this? Also, the water has been slightly...
