I am now feeding them on frozen bloodworms and Omega One pellets. The one that is sitting on the bottom has lost some colour, but he still eats. The scales of the fish also have a rustled look. Like...

I'm really set on trying some stickle-backs. I am looking for some other species to attempt with them. Getting the freshwater dwelling stickle-backs may prove to be a challenge.

Oh wow, a few times a year, I was averaging once a week. Sadly, my fish passed away last night. Strange, how my largest of the four and seemingly healthiest was the one who died. What are the...

Update: He managed to swim to the surface where he took a gulp then crashed back to the bottom. From the looks of it he is trying to swim, but appears heavy ...?

I looked in my tank and found my largest leopard ctenopoma (of 5 months) lying on it side. It still draws breath but doesn't move. It seems to have difficulty breathing. It manages to upright itself...

Update: Some new symptems have surfaced, some of the leaves appear to be thinning? Not browing/yellowing, becoming clear then becoming a real hole. However, the leaves that have become detached have...
Wow! That fish is gorgeous. Darters are definatley going on the list.
White cloud minnows are pretty cool. I've seen those before, but I always assumed they were tropical. Thanks! Keep them coming!
I have aquired a new 30 gallon and would like to stock it with some cold water fish. However, I would like to avoid goldfish as they produce alot of ammonia and most out-grow 30 gallon...

I keep the tank at about 78 degrees. As far as pictures go I'll see if I can get my camera working. Right where the stems have broke off they are brown and look fraid.

I'm rather new to plants, and I'm having an issue that I can't seem to fin a solution for. I have a large forest of Amazon sword plants. I've had them for about five months now with no...
Is is like a ghost-knife where you can trick it to think that is is hiding, but is really in a clear plastic tube?
02-29-2012, 04:04 PM
If you don't want to get your hands wet you can aslo use a tube that is long enough. Fill it with water drop food in and aim at the eel's cave or wherever you want.

Is it me, or do butterfly fish seem to be lazy and/or oblivious. I do drop food right on them or I try and blow it in their direction. If it's not close or right on top of them they...

Good news, out of the 8 I put into the tank he ate 1!!!!! It still doesn't seem like much food for a 3incher though. Didn't think size would matter, their mouths could easily fit the largest of...

Just bought some pin head crickets, will post results in a bit.
This post is a bit old, but we've been going over these in my fishery class. Here is some info.
.In North America they range from Florida to up past Maine, this should give you some information on...

The crickets aren't that large, if I got the next size down they'd be pin heads (Worth a shot). Like I said before these guys are big, the largest butterflies I've ever seen. And yes, the crickets...

Yes, I should have mentioned that before, I've dropped crickets right in front of him and he just looks at like hes dumb-founded. I'm not 100% sure if they are wild caught, because the store gave me...

So a week ago I purchased three large(about 3") African butterfly fish. One of them is being very stubborn and doesn't seem to want to eat. I've been feeding them bloodworms and crickets....

Beef heart is not their normal diet, primarily blood worms, guppy fry, and pellets. I had no intentions of feeding him such a large piece, I thought I had broken it up enough.
He's managed to get...

One of my leopard ctenopomas (a.k.a. spotted climbing perch/brush fish) has a big ol' hunk of beef heart stuck in his mouth. Normally they can get chunks down just takes about 10 min or...
Once they reach about 2-2.5" They will be large enough to put into my 50.
