    I doubt the eel would eat fry, but it would pretty well keep any more from hatching. They're not easy to find, only occasionally imported and not usually in any quantities. They're collected from...

    I kept a pair of the plagiostoma in a 29, they only grow to about 7-8" long. Unlike most spiny eels they don't burrow into the substrate. They don't bother and are usually ignored (unless on the...

    Your options are rather limited since you have a small tank. The Julies won't eat the multi fry, and if/when they pair up and start spawning the Julies are nearly as colonial as the multis. Larger...

    A 55 is a fair size tank for a group of 12-15 demasoni and a similar number of electric yellows. You do need to keep a large group of demasoni, smaller groups will end up as one after they kill each...

    Use some filter media from your established tank to seed the new setup and you don't have to cycle it, just add fish. In a few days the bacteria colonies will adjust to the new bioload and you should...

    Trading off some of the mbuna won't address the compatability issue with the peacocks, not to mention the Tanganykians. The yellow Lab's are actually the least troublesome of the species you have...

    Stress from mixing peacocks, mbuna, and Tanganykians in a tank too small for the peacocks alone. If you want bright color and high activity in a 55 keep the electric yellows and swap out the rest for...

    Should be fine, whiptails are about the most mellow fish you'll find anywhere. The L-201 isn't a killer, and the whiptails are different enough in appearance that they shouldn't be seen as direct...

    I can easily see the Oscar eating the congo tetras in a few months, and the roselines soon after. Many tears ago (actually decades now) I saw an Oscar in an lfs tank with a juvenile red line...

    Best part of having so many is that there's usually at least one in bloom just about all the time. They're all different too, pink, purple, white, yellow, and the newest one that hasn't yet bloomed...

    Most of the aquarium stuff is going, hopeefully in the next couple months since work should slow down a bit now. I've been emptying out tanks of fish to use them to house snakes and building plywood...

    I have too much stuff, main hangup is that even though it's not in use it's still good, so I hate to throw it away, lol. For example, I switched from gravel to sand in my aquariums years ago, and...

    Along with the distinctive gonopodium, males are the only ones that have the fan-shaped tail fin. Some females do have colorful tails, but the shape is always rounded, never a fan.

    You'd really be better off building a shallow pond in the basement (4x4's for a frame and a liner) than trying to keep even the smallest in a 125.
