African Dwarf Frog floating on top of tank :( by asginpg
I recently purchased four African Dwarf Frogs. I put two of the little guys in my one gallon filtered tank with my Betta. One of the frogs almost immediately floated to the top (well, after an hour) and he has been there ever since. I purchased (per various pet store recommendations) quite the...

water vapour hindering feeding by john royce
My Automatic feeder drops fish food into the top entry hole of a aquarium via a 'plastic funnel'. The inside of the funnel must be getting quite moist from the rising water vapour, because fish food keeps sticking to the inside and then builds up; to the extent I have to clean it every few...

Shell cleaning by Daniel Prince
My brother bought a shell at a shell shop (not an aquarium shop). How do we clean it so that it will be safe to use in a goldfish tank? Thank you in advance for all replies. -- Whenever I hear or think of the song "Great green gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts" I imagine my cat saying; "That...

Angels have taken over by JKconey[_2_]
I now have 2 pairs, that have each staked out one side of my 50 gallon tank for egg laying. Neither one has had success fertilizing a batch yet, but it's only been a couple of tries. Who knows if anyone of them is even a male? Question is, can I ever add other fish to this tank besides catfish,...

To lower the temperature on a Hagen heater, do I turn the black knobclockwise our counter-clockwise???? by Chris Tsao
For a Hagen heater, do I turn the black knob on the top clockwise or counter-clockwise to lower it? If my memory serves, it didn't say on the back of the blister pack it came in. I've read online people saying to do it both ways. Thanks in advance.

HR 669? by Nitesbane
A few of my fellow hobbyists seem concerned about this bill, introduced on January 26, 2009. Similar bills have been introduced in the past as far back as the 1970's (as far as I know) and all have failed. Personally, I don't see this having a major impact on the fishkeeping hobby even if it...

Killer Angels by JKconey
I've been keeping fish for almost 50 years, and have raised or breed just about everything except Angels. I started a couple months ago with 6 small ones in a well planted 55 gallon tank from a LPS. I am truly amazed at how agressive these guys are. They constantly fight and are greedy as hell...

Angel died by JKconey
This one puzzles me. I had 6 angels for a few months all eating like mad, healthy and growing in leaps and bounds. All of a sudden the smallest one is laying on the gravel dead. Next to it is a dead tuxedo catfish. Water, temp and such all fine. I wonder if it was attacked and killed by the...

Zebra Danios becomming increasingly aggressive by [email protected]
Hi all, I got 5 zebra danios to cycle my tank along with 3 neon tetras. The zebra danios have always been very active and it took the neons a few days to learn to deal with them. All have been in the tank for about 3 weeks now. However in the last 3 or 4 days the danios have become increasingly...

Powerhead for prefiltered reverse-flow undergravel filter by Daniel Prince
What brands and models of powerheads work in reverse and are easy to attach a filter to? Thank you in advance for all replies. -- Whenever I hear or think of the song "Great green gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts" I imagine my cat saying; "That sounds REALLY, REALLY good. I'll have some of that!"

foggy water by Ken & Sandy
I have a 10 gallon tank. I have a biowheel filter system. My tank was having an algae issue for some time which water changes wouldn't fix. The stones were several years old so I thought perhaps this was the issue. I changed the stones yesterday, and took out three gallons of water as...

Neon Tetra feeding issue by [email protected]
I'm setting up a new tank (29gal). So far I have only 3 neon tetras in the tank with no other fish. My problem is that the neons hang out near the bottom which wouldn't be a problem but they seem to not notice when I place food in the tank. I'm feeding them flake food and they often don't notice...

still useless by Larry Blanchard
I made one of my periodic checks of this newsgroup just now. Of the 19 unread messages, my filters eliminated 18 of them. Sigh. Seems the inmates are still running the asylum. -- It's turtles, all the way down

Has anyone noticed the difference in the Eclipse tanks? by Tynk
Hello fishy folks. I have noticed a change in the acrylic and hoods of the Eclipse system tanks (not the hoods that fit onto a glass tank, but the entire system). According to Marineland, they haven't changed a thing. I have 3 older version, all made 2004 or before. The newer, cheaper version of...

Angels by JKconey
I just changed over my 55 to essentially an Angel tank, with a few catfish and lots of Amazon Sword plants. I got 6 small locally bred assorted fish at my LPS. Can someone give me a quick run down on what they like? I haven't kept them in years and only remember them being voracious eaters and...

Those ecosphere ball things by Jason
Hi all, I was wondering if anyone can point me to a newsgroup / forum about ecospheres. I recently saw those ecosphere balls at http://www.eco-sphere.com/home.htm and wanted one. Yes I realize it's old news, but I just found out about it. Anyways, the price is way too high for me, so, being an...
