    Welcome to the board! I too would love some goldie pics if you have any! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    A calico! I've always wanted one but couldn't justify the $20 plus for a ranchu or whatnot (my LFS never has calico's). Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Oh no... that does not sound fun at all. And i thought having an 11hr shift last week was bad! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Ohh. There is! Tapatalk must have different types of report functions available then! Thanks for that, never mind Koko! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    I would suggest loads of live plants, which would have microorganisms and aufwuch to eat and snack on. Plants with fine leaves - like java moss - make great additions. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Morning! Quick question koko, would it be possible to look into adding the report button to the tapatalk end of things? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  10. Best filtration for 75 gallon

    I personally reccomend an fluval FX4/6. Its a beast, but would do well for your tank. Good brands include eheim, fluval and sunsun (a cheap alternative). Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Mixing species is fine. Many crabbers that have the opportunity to have multiple species of crabs often keep them together. What many reccomend however is that having a species buddy whenever possible, so they dont get lonely. I personally also reccomend keeping crabs of different sizes together, they often do better and have less conflicts due to not sharing the same resources - like shells. Having kept crabs of the same size, often problems arose compared to crabs of different sizes. Straws are extremely hard to keep, and many don't live past a couple of years before dying of moulting complications. However, many that have had straws for longer periods of time often had a UVB setup, feeding a varied diet and a nice deep saltwater bowl.... and deep substrate to keep them happy! They love to dig.

    Sorry to hear about your betta. Hopefully things improve somewhat, I find that shallow water, epsom salts and if needed, and long term a change in diet can make a difference! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  13. Haha, they not as bad as kuhli loaches. For me, they are the definition of impossible. They long wormy fish, that can do a mad dash around the tank, hide under virtually anything and will dig into the substrate.... i pretty mich drained my tank to an inch of water, and was still struggling to catch the buggers! I find that the BA tetras are pretty easy to outwit them once you establish how they behave... but maybe that what just mine, since they are big bulky fish so they didn't have a lot of options once decor was removed.

    Yeah. Guppies are jumpers - I didn't notice that you didn't have a lid, otherwise I would of mentioned it. Many surface dwelling fish are jumpers... As for the 45g, why not get some goldies in there? Hermies are certainly a viable option in there as well. As for salt, what are you thinking of doing? Reef or fish only? That will determine how difficult it will be, and cost/time involved. Reef requires a little more to get things running smoothly - like using RODI water, unlike fish only which does fine with tap - and lighting, coral, supplements and whatnots really add up. You cant really skimp on important equitment like you could in fish only.... but with marine, its important not to rust. And research extensively beforehand. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. Will hose chlorine kill good bacteria?

    Is it possible to sway them on the goldie side? Could have quite a few goldies in their opposed to a couple of koi... not to mention, it would be a goldie dream! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
