    Eggs anyone

    I was using a sponge filter with power head but they got so big I needed a bigger filter. Then my filter didn't reach the bottom of the tank so I added the power head to circulate the floor Works pretty good so far
  4. He does have the classic breeding stars on him scales. That I can see. Im with @Arctic Mama about the treatment for now

    If they did most likely they got sucked into the filters. I have two HOBs and an power head. The power head I turn on during the day and off at night. This keeps the tank floor clean durning the day and then at night gives them some time to sleep with out being pushed around.
  8. LOL I think I would like that, it's kinda cute! Those photos are great, thanks for posting!

  11. The Ocellatus shellies are harem spawners, one dominant male and several females. They keep you on your toes because they're so aggressive. Neolamprologus Multifasciatus are IMO much more interesting and easier to get. They are colony spawners and the group dynamics are amazing. They can do ok in a 20g long, but in a larger tank, you can really see how the colony interacts together. This is a young pair of multies with new fry. I don't have a good enough camera to take pics of these fish - I think the parents were about 3/4" long.
  12. Chris here... No need to respond to my post.... My beautiful Buster passed away this afternoon... 💕 RIP 😢
  13. If you have a chance to keep shellies, do it! A 20 gallon long is ideal, 10 gallon in a pinch for "multies", I think the tiniest cichlid in the world. This pic is a Lamprologus Ocellatus Zambian Blue juvenile. I was afraid to do water changes because they would nip my hand when it's in the water. It doesn't hurt, but it's always very unsettling.

  15. Angelfish can do fine in a community tank - just choose your inhabitants carefully. Neon tetras can be prey, anything that would fit in their mouths. When they pair up to spawn, nobody is safe. They picked apart my community of sterbai corydoras when they paired up.
  16. I mean I thought freshwater angelfish do not do well in community tanks especially with goldfish or guppies. Um, I have seen guppies in the same tank as goldfish. Not ideal situation I know or recommended. Oh huh? Just got a phone call I think is a scam as it says I have a credit card with good payment status. I do not know of any credit card other than my PayPal debit card, but that is not a credit card anyway. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  17. I will ask her I will take one... Don't know TD would approve
  18. I heard that freshwater angelfish like to eat other fish. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. I've always found that so amazing! Also many people don't realize that Angel Fish are cichlids too. It's incredible how different they are, so many types of cichlids! The shell dwellers are rather spectacular as well.

  21. Okay thank you, I'll order some epsom salt and up the water changes The scales are flattening back to normal, I'm going to assume some sort of injury was the cause after him freaking out so much. Here are the white spots, they're smaller than the operculum breeding tubercles and across his body scales. Maybe it's just breeding stars across the body which are easy to see as he is a deep black? I've never really heard of them across the body but if they've been there for years that makes more sense I guess Thank you for your help. Definitely had a panic when I saw uplifted scales!
  22. Hi everyone, sorry that my first post here is asking for help but I'm at a loss for how to help this guy. He's very energetic and has been this way for a while now, so I'm hopeful someone will know something in time to help him. There's a fairly long chain of events that I will try to make concise. The start of his chain of illness/injury was a columnaris pandemic that rolled in while my wife and I were (of course) out of town visiting family for a week. We were able to treat them successfully with a mix of furan-2 and kanaplex but we lost about half of our goldfish to it as some died before we returned and some were too far gone to help. One of our other goldfish had been nipping at the white patches growing on the oranda's head bubbles and did a fair amount of damage to them before we saw and separated him. He has now been in quarantine for about a month, we continued through two full courses of furan-2 and kanaplex and took care of the columnaris but our oranda took on these black growth-like things on his head. I have been unable to find any information on any infection, illness, or fungal growth that looks like this. The only thing that seems close is some people have described the healing process as looking somewhat like this but it seems to be spreading to areas that weren't damaged, and now his fins also have picked up some black at the ends. We started on a dose of general cure but it did not seem to be helping so we did not complete the full course. Currently we are only treating him with aquarium salts as we are at a loss of what to try. We have nearly every fish medication known to man in stock, and live in close proximity to several well-stocked stores if we need something we don't have. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Or what a good course of treatment would be? Would love for this guy to get better, I feel bad keeping him away for his friends so long and I don't want him to die in quarantine.
  23. Hi all, Chris here... My Buster has hurt himself... 😱.... Sometime overnight Buster managed to get himself stuck between the skimmer and the tank wall...😯. I found him this morning and rescued him... The only actual injury I can see I’d the leading edge of one of his pectoral fin is broken... But this symptoms are an unwillingness to swim, floating upside down... Due to his unwillingness to swim I added a glass box to the tank for him to rest in and to avoid floating at the top and damage of being exposed to air.... Pictures will be attached...

  24. True, discus don't look like the typical SA, CA or African cichlids. But cichlids in general, they have advanced parental care which I find so cool. Tropheus moms brooding eggs and fry in their mouths and discus fry feeding off the slime coast of mom and pop. Discus are schooling fish so don't feel guilty about crowding them a little.
  25. Huh . . . you just taught me something . . . I've read about discus before, inquired about keeping them, but I never realized that they are actually cichlids! Feels like something I should have picked up along the way (from around 10 years of fish keeping) but I'm just getting it now. Thanks for that!
