LFS owners, please read..... by ~Vicki ~
I am so sorry to hear about your problem with your LFS. Danville is a small area tho and I guess it does not have the competition that Hampton Roads does for business. Around here there are so many pet shops that they even take each others coupons. Once yours starts loosing enough business they...

Mirror in the fishtank by Big Dummy
I have been having problems with a hyper-territorial green terror in my 75 gal tank, he killed a gymnogeophageous meridonalis, a jaguar guapote, two plecostomus and a synuspillum, chewed up two severums and a red devil so badly they had to be removed, beaten up with no tails.

Skin Irritation by Jonathan Wood
Actually, my fish are not cichlids, they are local wild fish. I've got two tanks that are fully cycled with ammonia and nitrites safely under control. Nitrates are also within acceptable range. Besides the water being a little hard and some variations on alkalinity, everything is pretty well...

Easy Water Changes by Pokey
I'm presently using a much easier way to do the weekly water changes in my tank. Instead of dealing with filling buckets of water I just use a garden hose siphon to take out about 50% of the water. Then I just connect the hose and add the water back in. I add a couple of capfuls of dechlorinator...

Punishment, solitary style. by D&M
I was at my local "experienced" lfs, inquiring about turning in one of my trouble makers, a Red Parrot cichlid. I was given a different alternative that I'd never heard of done to a fish before today, just wondering if anyone else has done it. When he is bad, catch him and lock him up is a...

How do I have a brightly-lit tank without algae? by Alan Silver
Hello, I have a 220 litre (24" cube) Malawi cichlid tank (see http://fish.alansilver.co.uk/Mark3/Gallery/0402FirstFish/Default.asp?img= tank_040217_01.jpg for an out-of-date picture) that is suffering from a green algae problem. I'm fairly certain that the problem is caused by the amount and/or...

Blueberry Oscars? by noname
My husband came home with what our LFS called a Blueberry Oscar Friday. It's about an inch and a half long and such a pretty blue. After watching it for awhile I googled on it to see what I could find out. (it stays around the top of the tank near the air bubbles and acts like it's uncomfortable...

Hello, There is an article on www.oscarfish.com that advises a KH test kit is one of the important test kit to own (along with ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH). I was all set to buy one, but then I spotted some API pH Up (my pH tends to be on the lower side) and was thinking about buying this...

Cichlids are KILLERS ! by Noah Body
I have never ever owned a single cichlid, but I bought two at the fish store because they were on sale. These fish have ripped the tails and dorsal fins off of my puffer fish, my Cory catfish and anything else in the tank. Before they kill everything in the tank, I removed them and put them in...

Feeding oscar bugs by Beano
Hi, I like to leave a bit of the lid on my oscars tank open so some bugs can fall in during the night when the light is on. I also feed him any bugs that I find around the house. Are there any particular bugs that might be poisonous to an oscar?
