  1. Hey y'all! Been awhile but I had a question I couldn't find an answer to. First off want to update on the Goldies. Ru, Hiro, and ChuChu are doing fabulous! I've recently added a lot more Java fern and even split my anubias into two plants! All is going great! But my question pertains to my new betta tank I set up today (seeded from the goldfish filter media), I found a t-8 fixture for real inexpensive at Walmart and bought it. I got a GE 9265k 15w freshwater/saltwater t-8 bulb and I was wondering if it would grow my low light plants? Or if it's too much? I know t-5 are better from research I've done but I already have this t-8 bulb/ballast. Any suggestions/tips would be awesome! Thanks! (Wasn't sure if I should post here or in betta forum so I came here since it was pertaining to lights). Hope everyone is doing great in the new year! -chris
  2. So sadly I came and found my golden/creamy/white betta dead in his planted tank and I knew he had been fin nipping himself but I didn't expect my self to find him dead I had rearranged the tank thinking he had been bored but I'm not too sure
  3. Your already being missed. I woke up this morning to find Diego no longer with us. Diego had passed away during the night. Yesterday he looked great but for some reason he didn't want to eat his evening pellets. I was hoping today would have been better for him. But if not, I was going to qt him and go from there. I brought home Diego thirteen months ago after purchasing him from Petco. He had lived in a 20g planted tank with a few nerite snails. I enjoyed having him a lot. Diego was fun to watch and I loved taking care of him. Diego's home was the beginning of learning about planted tanks for me. Thank you Diego for putting up with me when I wanted to rearrange your home with your plants, adding new ones to the existing ones, or even uprooting the dead ones. You've been a great betta. I wish you would have lived much longer. [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// Bye Bye Diego. December 2013 to January 17, 2015
  4. We are moving this weekend and I'm quite worried about moving with my fish. Luckily we are literally just moving down the street, but it's complicated because the weekend we are moving me and my friends are going to a music festival. I have a big tub I got to put my fish in, but they would have to sit in there for 2 days while the tank gets moved and set up and I'm scared about having high ammonia since they are both large. I honestly just don't trust my family with taking care of my fish and need some advice on what to do. I will be able to put my aquaclear 110 on the bin but not my canister filter. How can I keep the media in the canister alive? Should I fast my fish a few days before the weekend to make sure ammonia stays down? My tank is 75 gallons and non planted with 2 goldfish. I also have a 10 gallon divided non planted betta tank, how should I prepare them?
  5. Well, after taking time off with the move of bacteria from my 10 gallon, he goes my 55 gallon! The fish are doing great for days now and have good results on ammonia and nirates. Off to a smooth start! I'm planning on adding substate and etc in a few weeks or two. I got both of these guys from a bad quality LFS for $5 and they both had ick. Guess they're better now... Got this ryukin a few months ago from a local Wal-mart. Couldn't let him go. Both of these guys I got last week from a quality LFS. The ranchu is only an inch long and is already showing wen growth. And finnaly my new 55 gallon tank. (I'll be adding another filter soon) -KK
  6. So My 30 gallon heater apparently is dead (I haven't had a need for it until tonight and just found out). I also have a 5g heater that I bought in error for my 3 gallon. Here's the deal: I have no central A/C or Heat and it's 40 degrees Fahrenheit outside. So it's currently around 65 degrees in the house and getting colder. I've moved her (edit: her = my female betta) tank into our kitchen (warmest room in the house). And I know Goldfish are more tolerant to cold but I do have the Chinese Algae Eater in my 30g with the goldfish. Is it OK to use my heater (for 5 gallon tanks) in my 3 gallon for my betta? Should I go buy a new heater for my 30g?
  7. Here's a little update on all the adult fishies and of course Guss, the snail. Baby pictures will be posted in goldfish breeding section. Maybe a pic of Bill would end up in here... Flopsy au Naturale Guss =) Ursula 'loose momma' GIlbert aka "sir bites himself a lot" Democaracy, proud papa Democracy and the other woman. Some super cute bristlenoses, Merlin and Liliana. The happy couple Alright and introducing, Little Bill the goldfish.
  8. I like to organize my pictures into one timeline, so some of these pictures are already on the site (: Something New: My Pearlscale. It could be something fishy, but it's actually more new than the fishy thing... If that makes sense. I still don't have a name for her. But she is super cute, I really like her. There is a perfect name for her out there somewhere! Today When I got her, she was a little pale. She is super small, only like the size of a quarter. She has perked right up since being put in with my other fish in QT. Everyone is about to be treated for prazi (: Something Fishy: Yukis new diggs, and pictures of my new Ryukins and Oranda (though not the best pictures). Mushu, my little Ryukin (: Chocolate Ryukin, his hump isn't as well developed as Mushu, but he is pretty and big! Sashimi, my cute little panda oranda. She has some cool yellow coloring under that black. (: Yuki's new pad. It's going to get more plants soon (: Something Cute: Otter and Cloud! My two bottle fed boys. Cloud is an orphan I hand raised. When I got him he had a gash on his side and was only one week old. This baby is a fighter and he is now almost 8 pounds of Handsome. Otter is only about 4 weeks old and is adorable. Cloud has adopted him as his own baby, and cleans and stimulates him to go poo. They cuddle and play together :3 My boys :3
  9. I hope this is the right forum section. I came across a Craigslist ad today, and it's just too far away from me to do anything about it. http://tampa.craigslist.org/hdo/pet/3230361018.html He's selling this setup for way more than it's worth, but... your eyes do not deceive you. Those are guppies, a betta, and a common goldfish. He says he'll give the fish away for $10 when I emailed. I would jump on it, and even asked my parents about it. (I can't drive) but they reiterated that it is just too far for a 'few fish.' (two hours away.) so if anyone near there could do anything, I hope you can.
  10. I did a little cleaning of the betta tanks today and am pretty happy with how the Chi looks now. I think I have a nice amount of plants in there, and some are growing quite fast! The larger anubias has put out a new leaf. And the little neon anubias have a lot of new leaves. General tank look - plus Sitting Bull zooming around like usual. Here is the growth on the little anubias What do you plant people think?
  11. Hi all. I cleaned out the betta tank today and noticed a bit of growth in the crypt plants that goldfish7 sent me a while ago. Of the 3 plants, one had melted entirely and I threw it away. The other two I left in the tank because I had heard that they often recover from the trauma of melting. So one plant, which had retained one leaf, now has a new leaf coming, and some new roots growing. The second one, which had melted to a nub with a few roots, now has some green appearing on the nub, and more roots! I'm very glad that the plants are recovering. I look forward to them growing out. From the pictures Goldfish7 sent, they are really unusual - kind of bright green with bronze stems and veins. I haven't had much luck with plants in the betta tank, so it's nice to see something happening.
