Here is a screen shot from a video I took of her a year ago. The difference is astonishing!
Hi all. I stumbled upon a folder on my computer from 2008. I had been very involved with betta rescue, but also opened my home to other fish such as wedding decor goldfish and the odd convict or two....
Not sure if anyone remembers me?! I've been gone for a couple of years at least! I use to post about ethical and responsible keeping/breeding of guppies/mollies/platties and bettas. I closed down my...
Maybe I'm not clear about my issue, let me try and reword it - I have not ever had a problem with ammonia being in the tap water, which is why I am confused as to why I am suddenly getting that...
I have not used filters in any of my betta tanks (except for spawning tanks I do use a sponge filter and the odd time I have a betta in a 10g with a box filter/heater and other fish) and I have...
You know it's too small when the measurements are in milimeters!!! :help:
Okay, I tested the "sick" tank and these are the results..
Checking them right now,
although I was stupid and did another 100% water change an hour ago.
Once this set is done I am going to test the other tank with the healthy betta.
On another note,...
I just don't see how I can have water problems if I do 100% water changes and then the next day it is cloudy again, only in one tank but not the other tank set up the exact same way. There are no...
I know it's been a year since I last logged in but I woke up this morning to one of my bettas not doing too good..
I have 2 females from the same spawn who are identical to the "T" and are your...
Hmmm... I forgot some things....
I also have the opportunity to go up to Alaska or down to Africa on medical trips once I become an RVT... polar bears or giraffes.. that is the question.. :help: ...
Yeah, but I'm not here for the fish.
Here's a little update on my life - education, tank setups, and species...
Over the many months I have been absent from AC I have been.....

Just an update...
The heater she originally used was too powerful and at the lowest rating made the tank too warm.. but she's been monitoring the temp hourly until she can go out and get...
@ 2:30.. did he just kiss the glass?
That lion fish was sweet.. too bad he didn't sing??
But.. he mixed freshwater and saltwater.. and that tank is wayyy overstocked... too bad there wasn't...
I have been using the bleach method - this is the 3rd time so far and it is finally starting to come clean!

As an update -
the black skirt is fine and dandy, and so is the 3 orange guys (forget their names) and the two other guys. (I'm drawing a huge mental blank here...)
Looks like this was a success...
Hmm.. it's a lot lighter than mine.. and this one still looks like brush algae.. mine appears to be a really short (and strong!) dark purple.
Out of water the algae appears black.

Picked up a dark red male (I believe it's a delta)
Owner said he would suggest a convict pair.. lots of babies! (Which I don't think we're in the situation to properly care for)
I wish we could...
I'm going to be honest with you - unless (for some very rare reason) your fish have a genetic condition where they are all infertile.. the chances your female is/was/will be 99.9%
Usually a female...
Will do so tomorrow - I'll keep it in a tub of water overnight...?
Hmmm... okay so I read all of that.. nothing about purple algae..
But I did learn what that other algae is - Brush algae which would explain why it's growing all over my fake plants and I just...
Everything I've read associates it with salt water.. no salt here!
Could it be nitrites? My tank is faarrrrr from being fully stocked - only maybe 6 adult guppies, a grown platty, a few platty...
This is exactly what colour it is.
This is a fairly good sized rock bought at Big Als many years ago.. I have used it for years without any issues.

So.. in science we're studying ecology (pretty basic stuff in grade 10... I usually just sit back and listen.. and let everyone else learn and answer questions)
Then, one day last week the...
My little 9 pound poodle is hysterical...
He'll let one rip, then turn his head around and either stare at his bum or look around the room like "What was that?!"
It gets pretty awful when he...
