  1. RAOKing off some salvinia minima, harvesting from several tanks. Just pay $8 for usps small flat rate box via PayPal. PM me your paypal email and I will send an invoice for shipping cost 2 packages available currently.-if hey sell out just pm me, I'll contact you when i have grown more to see if you are still interested. Salvinia minima is a great floating plant for aquariums, its easy to grow than frogbit and water lettuce-it does not mind being under a lid, doesn't burn from bright light, and doesn't rot from condensation drips, nor is it picky about air flow (like frogbit and water lettuce). Its an undemanding grower, and helps diffuse light for those with planters tanks getting a bit too much light, and helps suck up excess nutrients/nitrates bettas love making bubble nets in it, an enjoy the shade it gives. If you ever want to be rid of it its much easier to remove completely than duckweed. Its good for shrimp and fish fry-place to hide and find food on the roots! I don't know if goldfish will eat this, I've not tried it in their tank. Portion= 10"x6" tub
  2. anubias barterie sold, still have nana and salvinia
  3. I bought some anubias barterie (honestly I think it may be a hybrid as the leaves are wavy like anubias coffeefolia, or a young anubias broadleaf) Was suppose to be a 12x12" ish portion plant but I got a TON. Way more than I planned or have room for (trying not to set up more tanks!) so wanted to let someone else enjoy these big plants! I can't find my measuring tape anywhere! (wtf did it go???!!) Placed anubais on background board for 20g long- 30" long 12" high Most are huge, few smallish one, and 2-3 just rhizome chunks that will grow into big plants with time. Taken it all for $30 shipped (needs medium priority box which costs $13 last time I checked? so $17 for plants +$13 for shipping). Continental US shipping only. Payment via Paypal. Add-ons: I have a small anubais nana I separated from the main plant 5 leaves, this will stay small leaf size compared to above anubias $1 2 sandwitch bags of salvinina minima (floating plant) probably about 30x18" area coverage $1 If you want just add-ons shipping is $7.50
  4. Dandy Orandas and Repashy team up!

    On a negative note I noticed my orandas have been gasping in the 40g breeder aquaponics.. did a water change yesterday (95%ish) still gasping today so did a ammonia and nitrite test.. ammonia is dark green!! Did 2x 95% water changes and filling up now, dosing extra prime to bind ammonia. Not sure what happened, I'm guessing I forgot to add Prime in a past fill up and killed my beneficial bacteria >.< Get to do more aggressive water changes for a while now and buy another 4L jug of Prime Thank you ^^ Thank you for the info. Thank you

    took photos last week just forgot to upload. 40grams, 4" body, looong fins, veiltail? also other 2 previously in qt are enjoying the planted 55g-stuck 2 aquaclear 70s on, kept the old sponge fitler and stuffed it over the intake of 1 of the HOB. Mild plant nibbling and 2-3 uprooted, but nothing too serious
  7. Yikes that stinks. So far I've not seen any lice on my new goldie *knock on wood* but the small black flecks in their fins/scales make it hard to tell if that's body coloration or small lice >.<

    I have no will power =.= did some shuffling and put the 2 newer goldfish into the planted 55g with 2-3 nerites, gave away my sword tails and moved my angelfish to a 20g. Went to the store I got the goldfish from to give the swordtails and came home with 1 of the 3 (thought there were only 2-they hide well!) calicos from the outside pond... this pond did have fish lice last month, manager/owner(?) did not think there were any left, I'd assume after a month if there was still some they'd be visible. But new calico is in qt tank. It went from a majority black with some orange and white to mostly orange in the tank (no light on qt). Hoping once its back in a planted tank with light it will get dark again. Photos to come Thank you
  10. I'm thinking of buying another goldfish (i have no self control) when I was at the store last month the ponds were being treated fro fish lice with potassium permanganate I'm not sure if there will have been a relapse from hatching eggs.. so looked into lice treatments and dimilin seems like a good once but dosing is 1 tbs for 500gs! My quarantine tank is only 20g. So has anyone used this medicine in "smaller" (under 100g) tanks? If so how much do you dose of the meds to how many gallons of water? It may be a mute point.. might get tot eh store and the fish is gone, but thought I'd ask.
  11. full tank photo ? like to see hardscape-reminds me of that one (overstocked) river rock and goldfish ada tank video

    Lovely art style! I'd never be able to do traditional medium art-I like my 'undo' button with digital ^^ How much do you charge for commission? Charge by hour, complexity, or canvas size? What size are those example works and what medium used (water color)? Are you willing to ship finished commission (with or without framing?-client pays for) Sorry for the bombardment of questions but I like your style and am seriously considering commissioning you if I can dig up some good (in focus/unblurred) photos for referencing.

    New fantails are settling in well, going daily 100% water change-using cleaned milk jug to shake up aq salt and dissolve it. Reeny the Pembroke Welsh Corgi finally noticed them today (their qt is on the floor). She was curious but hesitant to check them out. Better than trying to get in the tank and catch them right? Did mention we have another puppy now too? His name is Steiner (translated to English:stone warrior), a Swedish Vallhund-look 'em up. Their similar to conies-same short leg long body herding breed. One breed was used to create the other-the origin breed is still debated though. He's 5 months now (Reeny is 1.5 eyars old). Interesting have watched both grow-Reeny kept short legged as a pup and grew proportionately. Steiner is all legs and slowly getting length-he's almost as tall as Reeny already. Thank you so much!!!! Thank you
