  1. That takes me back to when I first found my first fry, it was a molly, and it was in the tank at my grandmas house and she bought an all white molly, a black molly, and a dalmation molly and we didnt know too much about fish and this was in a 10 gallon and a couple of days later we had a fry and we saved it and put it with an airstone and it lived and grew to be an all white and then it died a couple of years later! I hope everything works out for you, sorry to go off on a rant like that
  2. I dont know if I have room for an otto but here is what I have: 30 gallon with 2 black skirt tetras 3 lemon tetras 1 cherry barb 1 dino (something) only gets about 1 inch full gronw) 2 ghost shrimp It has a bubble bar Let me know if an otto will fit in this condition. Thanks
  3. When a female guppy is pregnant she will get a black spot by her anus called a gravid spot, and you never can really tell when she is about to give birth, so you kind of just have to watch her. Good luck, and I am sure someone else can come along and give you more information than what i just did.
  4. Hi. I have to clean my tank for the 2nd time in the past 3 weeks, I have brown algae growing out of my ears and it is driving me crazy and I was wondering if there was anyway to stop it. If you could please let me know that would be great. Thanks
  5. Those look like great fish! If the breeding is successful, please post pictures of what they turn out like because I but you they are going to have some great color and come great body features as well! Good luck and please keep us posted : )
  6. Hey! I am getting read to paint the room that I have the 30 gallon fish tank and the 10 gallon which has hermit crabs, and I was wondering what to do with the fish in the 30 gallon while i paint because the tank will have to be taken down and I dont want to set it up in a location where its not going to stay. If you could please let me know what you think that would be great. Thanks
  7. Those are some great pictures! Thanks for sharing!
  8. I think that as long as they are doing fine in the water then I think they will do well in the fish tank. Just make sure you quarantine them first because coming from a river, there could be so many diseases. Good luck. Could you please post a picture of the fish? Thanks
  9. thanks for the photo but it looks like it might be a neon tetra that just hasnt gotten all its color. Do you think that could be?
  10. I think it would be best for your goldfish if you bring some old filters or once you get a job go ahead and buy some new filters and then make your goldfish home the 20 gallon! I think they would love you more for that.
  11. I have never had a problem with any type of babies together. They are both tropical so should eat the same thing and she require the same temps and so I think you would be alright. I have never had a problem and I have had babies almost as big as the adults and 1 day old babies and they didnt bother each other. I would try it but just watch them and make sure.
  12. They kind of look like neon tetras that just havent developed all their color yet. Is that what these are. Good luck and thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures. Thanks
  13. I am not sure but I think it is somewhere in the 6 month range or it might even be a year, but I am not sure. I know it is a lot younger than when humans can though because mine were the same way! I hope that helps you in answering your questions
  14. Depending on what type of snail it is, you can have 2 because the websites I have read have said an apple snail needs one gallon for each snail but the other snails, I dont know about. I am pretty sure the golden inca snails are the same as the apples but I dont know. Good luck and please keep us posted on what you decide to do.
  15. yeah if you could find it that would be cool because I can not see the picture either. Thanks
  16. Hey! I had one small hermit crab and now have 2 small hermit crabs and 2 medium-large sized hermit crabs. I got the three new crabs from a website called craigslist for free and I was wondering if my first little one, who is the smallest of all of them all, will he be bullied and hurt or should I move him into his own tank. Please let me know. Thanks
  17. Whats the main difference between feeder guppies and fancy guppies because all my pet shops sell are the fancy guppies and they are kind of expensive but sometimes they do have deals like 5 for $5 and they include like 7 different type of fish to chose from like tetras and guppies and frogs and things like that. Sorry but I was just wondering the difference. Sorry for the long post.
  18. okay thanks. Can I use normal sticks from my yard instead of driftwood and do you think I can use just plain rope or does it have to be a certain kind of rope?
  19. Hey! I am wondering what I can do to get my hermit crab to come out the hermi hut for longer than food and water. What kind of things can I get for him to do that will make him want to come out. If you could please let me know that would be great. Thanks
  20. I tried the brown aquarium rock, which is 1/2 of my 10 gallon tank and the other half is blue sand, the crab never goes on the sand no except for getting food and water.
  21. Yes, the salt is from API. I was wondering if it would still work, please let me know. Thanks
  22. Thanks. I think I will do that. Can I use aquarium salt? IT says its for freshwater fish and its all natural? Do you think that would work? Please let me know sorry for all this confusion
  23. it still doesnt answer how much salt to put in the dish that is not even 1/4 of a gallon
  24. okay so if there is room to add another dish, then go ahead. How much salt would you put in? It is one of those glass oval type ones that they sell at the pet store, not deep at all, if you put a baby fish in it, it would die becuase there is not enough water for it.
  25. Hey! I have three questions: 1. What is better to use, sand, mulch, or rock which all come from the pet store? 2. Can you use normal fish tank rock or does it have to be a certain rock made just for hermit crabs? 3. Can you use the mulch that is in the parking lots for free that is from the winter storm damage from the trees? If you could please let me know that would be great. Thanks
