    Rustic is getting to be a big fella. I have to spread my fingers out wider to hold him like this lol. He's the king. Tough boy. Fast too. Still the hardest to catch though the biggest.

    Hopefully you don't die of cuteness... I almost did. These are some SILLY birds. They're getting too scrunched in their nest and so they have decided to use the entire planter as a nest.

    Thanks! The plant on the top is the small variation of Pistia plant, bonsai Pistia lol. Very tough plant, perfect biological filter, the roots are great for the inhabitants, growing really fast and doesn’t like flow. Excellent plant for low tech nano planted tank. Look at my ramshorn pearl snails, today I organise BBQ party for them lol.

    Okay I went to take a picture of them and I believe I found at what happened. I noticed I was down to four instead of 5 again. And I found one on the floor. Apparently they will jump out of the tank. This was something I did not know about Guppies. the dogs and probably got rid of the other two that had jumped out. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    The water is still clearing, I’ll take better pictures in a few days. The fish didn’t skip a beat went right too exploring the new tank

    Thanks girls! I mentioned them to a friend of mine, who said her neighbors have a pond... We shared some pictures and info, and I took them over today. Sad to see them go, but happy at the same time because I know they will be well taken care of. It's a 500 gallon goldfish pond owned by some very nice folks who get a lot of enjoyment from feeding them twice a day and caring for the fish. Once they were in, I couldn't find Fluffernut again, but SwimFish made a few appearances.

    Let's look at the principles behind the shallow tank. A goldfish that has any problem with swimming will swim better in shallow water. It will swim most easily in water that is just deep enough to cover the dorsal fin. Give it shallow water with plenty of surface area (at least 2 square feet per adult goldfish) and it will swim more. Why is this important? The genetic deformity that characterizes short bodied fancy goldfish makes swim bladder disorders the "fancy goldfish disease." After that, obesity seems the most common cause of swim bladder disorders. One treats obesity with less food and more exercise. Duckweed has fiber and lots of protein, but lacks the high nutritional carbohydrates and fat of fish food. That makes it an ideal diet food for your fish. The fish also has to put out an effort to get it's mouth to the surface to grab the duckweed -- more exercise. The shallower the water and the greater the surface area the more oxygen in the water, and this contributes to fish health.

    I've had the green water all summer. And as usual... It always clears up on its own. It's not totally clear but it's begun to clear up. The fish don't truly care one way or the other lol

    Hi all I don't visit here much any more as I don't currently have fish at the moment (see previous posts in which I had what can only be described as an adult tantrum and got rid of all my tanks ) I'm thinking I will get another tank once the weather warms up and I can put some money aside for it (it's currently winter here in Aus). Anyways, I just wanted to pop on here and say hello to everyone

    And 10 days after hatching, they actually look like proper birds. Pretty cute. Turns out there are 4 of them and not 3. I look from time to time but don't linger and I never ever touch them, feed them, or reach towards them. I just look. Their mom seems to be doing a great job and there is no need for my intervention.

    On another 50% water change today. I'm thinking maybe this weekend I will start trying to set up the other Nano tank. I will have to get it of course LOL. I'm thinking of doing a simple java fern setup for the Pea puffer tank. not sure where I am going to get the Pea puffer at yet LOL. None of the local pet stores have them though one has carried them in the past. So I may ask them if they can get a shipment in. I've been doing a lot of research on them that's why I was watching a lot of videos and I think that would make a nice little nano tank fish for my bedside table to watch. I may get some MTS or Ramshorns and though in my other tank to grow some food for the puffer. Sent from my LGL84VL using Tapatalk

    Miss Shrimp is trying to catch Rustic in size lol. She's still the same oddly shaped little fish she was when I got her. Weirdly fat for a single tail and a curved little mouth. And Star is still the biggest too but the white Ryukin, Miss Tercey, is trying to catch him.

    Definitely keep buffering your water, given the hardness. What were the readings after the bucket test? You didn’t say, but we may be able to recommend some supplements to help. Please listen to the water change and surface area advice. Remember that just because the water doesn’t have a lot of waste in it, it doesn’t mean the redox potential is where it should be to keep the fish healthy, especially in a system with less hardness or lower pH. http://www.americanaquariumproducts.com/Redox_Potential.html

    That's weird. I too have never heard of them being notorious jumpers. I've heard of Bettas jumping but mine can barely even swim and so I am not too worried about that. I wonder if Blood Parrots jump. I don't think so. I have lids but I keep them open since the tank runs very warm it helps with the oxygen exchange.

    My first time with the sparkling gouramis too. Surprised by how inquisitive they are. The Celestial Pearl Danios (CPD) could be very shy, they need dithers to pull them out of the background but their colours are intense. The sparkling gouramis do draw out my CPD's so they are all out and about now.

    Sorry, meant to say that the Gudgeons and gobys require a larger tank, but I think a school of chili rasboras, a few Asian stone cats, sparkling gouramis would do fine in a 5 gallon. Maybe the Celestial Pearl Danios are an option too.
