    Good luck if you're making a piece!
    Hmmm...marble in the aquarium? It's probably nothing to worry about, but marble can make the tank pH go up.

    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Well, I made an assumption that it's marble because that's what it looks like. it could be something else. it was smooth and heavy and white

    And PH is good in this tank ... around 7. so far .....

  9. Default a lot has happened.

    For whatever reason, I've been unable to access the forum for several days. but now I'm baaaacccckkkk. And a lot has happened to the 90 while I was gone.

    When I last posted fish news, I had brought 3 silver dollars into the tank. At first, the only problem was getting them to eat. then things got ugly :o(
    I don't know if it's because my tank is placed right near the entrance to my office which requires that I walk past it several times a day or what, but the SD's lost it after a few days. They started hiding all the time and as I'd sit at my desk, I could occasionally hear them banging into the tank walls, which upset the Blood Parrots which upset the Severum and basically started a chain reaction of chaos that I couldn't seem to break, no matter what I tried. I kept the lights off. I tiptoed by the tank. I kept the noise down to a whisper. Still, EVERY fish in the tank went into hiding. Even the congos were skattered and seemed confused. I could look over from my desk and not see a single fish. It was spooky.

    So, I made the difficult decision last Friday to return the Silver Dollars before something happened to them or to my other fish.

    Now, several days later, order has been restored, the fish are out of hiding, the severum and the angel are no longer bullying any fish that comes within inches of it and the congos are happily zipping around in their group of 7. Unfortunately, there were a couple injuries, however, that I couldn't see when they were hiding. My little blood parrot has a torn tail and the larger BP has a mark on one of it's swim fins. Have been watching them closely and today decided to treat with Melafix just to make certain neither of them get infection.

    So ... who knew? The SD's should have been compatible with my stock but in this instance, everything went wrong. Just glad order has been restored and everyone seems happy again. No more fish for this tank for a while and IF I do add any more, I'm thinking it might be my school of Colombian Tetras from the 30 gal.

    Speaking of the 30, I took the plunge and brought home a pair of German Blue Rams for my 30 gal 6 days ago. I remain nervous about them as I understand they are difficult to keep, but so far they appear to be thriving. This tank is well seasoned and mature, has both real and artifical plants, very calm tetras and cories and plenty of hidey holes. So far, however, the little guys are very visible and eating like pigs. So, fingers crossed. And don't ask if they are a pair. I don't know. So far I'm thinking I have 2 males or 2 females as there is no visible difference between them. I like them so much though, that if they continue to do so well, I might get another pair - which is the main reason I might move the colombian's out of the 30 to the 90 :o)

    Sorry about the silver dollars not working out. Thats a good example on how fish and tanks vary in indivual tanks.

    Good luck with the German Blue Ram. They are very sensitive and hard to keep. I lost my male 2 month ago and my female isnt doing to good. I think they were over stressed in my community tank. Try to keep the stress levels down by not keep any bottom dwellers in the same tank if they are breeding. That was my mistake.
