  1. Awesome, thank you! I have a 300g rubbermaid tub and a large part of the yard for 'my plant area' and would love to incorporate a pond set up like this. Do you have a thread on the build and filter set up?
  2. Any update on this amazing pond? I love everything about it!
  3. It's not just covers tho.. I left a large net on the edge of our pond one evening... and we found a dead frog in the net at the bottom the next afternoon. I felt terrible!!!!
  4. I've not been home all day to test the params. My lfs guru says it is most likely a bacterial infection causing the eye issues... he's not sure about the mouth but hopefully this treatment will help.. I got KanaPlex, Brackish Salt & Atison's Betta Spa. Will do a 30% water change then add the meds & stuffs. Sent from my SGH-T999 using Tapatalk 2
  5. **Nygel has been in this tank for at least 9/10 months now. Hubby tells me yesterday that he noticed Nygel’s eyes look silver. What? Ok, you know how you always say he is a dragon scale, which is why he has that cool silvery look? Well it looks like that silvery color is spreading over his eyes now, I noticed that a few days ago... Oh and I forgot to tell you that his mouth looks swollen too. WHAT?!?! - That’s how I was informed of this issue yesterday. Lol. I tried to include all info I thought was important… This pic is from early October. Housing What size is your tank? 10g What temperature is your tank? Not sure Does your tank have a filter? Aquaclear 20 Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No Is your tank heated? Yes What tank mates does your betta fish live with? 2 otos, unknown number of mts. The mts have been in since the beginning of October. Otos were in there before the betta. Food What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Omega One pellets, bloodworms. How often do you feed your betta fish? 1-2 pellets at night Maintenance How often do you perform a water change? Every few weeks as the tank is in a very hard to reach location. I was actually going to break it down, rescape it and move it to an easier to reach location… Now I am waiting to find out what I need to do for Nygel. What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 25-50%, will be able to change much more often once it is in the new location. What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Prime Symptoms and Treatment How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Eyes look cloudy/silver, Mouth is very swollen. How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Acting normal. When did you start noticing the symptoms? Hubby noticed a few days ago. Just brought to my attention yesterday evening. Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? No Does your fish have any history of being ill? He had no tail when I got him, but it grew back beautifully. I never treated with anything other than a good environment & consistent diet. How old is your fish (approximately)? He was full grown when I acquired him about a year ago from a pet store. These pics are from yesterday evening.
  6. This is a super old thread but thought I would post an update... I recently set up a Fluval 306 canister filter - which is amazing!! Have taken down the ac 20 hob but left the ac 70 running w/ 2 smaller sponges & a big philodendron plant in it. All my old media went into the canister. Still have the black tms, same heater & light set up. The original plants didn't work out.. Have had only the big rock w/ the anubias on it forever.. But I just added more rocks & anubias. They are just way to destructive for other plants.. My big white goldie passed away last week. I'm sad but relieved. She was so floaty and it was so stressful to see her struggling all the time. My other 2 are fat and happy as can be. Sent from my SGH-T959V using Tapatalk 2
  7. OMG! Sorry for hundreds of posts... I'm feeling like brain is jumping all over the place today... I did ask them about the NLS and she said that their distributor told hem that the company isn't going to be making it anymore and that they even checked the booth when they were at the big expo a few months ago and were told pretty much the same thing. Its currently not available as they might atop making it.. Whatever. Hopefully my fancy finned kids like the OmegaOne.
  8. This place is awesome w/ their betta selection. Besides the dumbo they also had a mustard gas (WHAT!) and a black crowntail. There were a few others but those were the memorable ones!! All great quality and very fiesty!! The way we love them!! Sent from my SGH-T959V using Tapatalk 2
  9. But... I still WANT him.. Lol Look at those ears... ;-* Sent from my SGH-T959V using Tapatalk 2
  10. Ashley!! Stop it!! Lol Unfortunately I have to be responsible... I am at max capacity right now.. I have 2 in small planted tanks, 1 in a 10g planted - we call that one the amazon jungle tank, and one is in a big 2g turtle kinda bowl cause his tank was really old.. So until he gt back into an established tank I feel like it wouldn't be fair to them. Sent from my SGH-T959V using Tapatalk 2

  12. Well that certainly makes it easier.. I ended up getting OmegaOne Betta Pellets. The fish store lady recommended it. Said she prefers it for the main staple diet, that its higher protein too. So we'll see how they do on it On a side note - I think I'm a betta hoarder. I currently have 4... And they had a dumbo there today!! OMG!! I want him. But have nowhere for him so I left w/ out him. But I still WANT him. Lol Sent from my SGH-T959V using Tapatalk 2
  13. I'll have to see what kind the lfs has. I only saw 1 kind and just read the brand not the formula it was in a tiny bottle compared to the one in the link. Cause my guys are all older.. Like over a year. We've had Ruby Rodd for 2yrs now. He's starting to slow down a bit and has lost some of his color lately. Can this food be too high protein? I've just had a liver scare w/ my toy breed as we've learned high protein causes liver issues in toy breeds... So thankfully its all been all food related but I'm not gonna be taking the betta's to the fishie doctor. Lol Sent from my SGH-T959V using Tapatalk 2
  14. Sweet! Thanks for the info!! I'll be stopping by to grab the Atison's tomorrow then. I'll most likely switch them to it immediately. I've had the Hikari for awhile anyways.. Time for something new!! Sent from my SGH-T959V using Tapatalk 2
  15. Is the Atison's best for breeding then? Does it matter? Cause I've only got 4 boys. Lol. I also couldn't find anything online about the NLS not being available anymore. I'm going to call the lfs again tomorrow and ask about it. If not then I'm sure I could find it online. I always prefer to support my little fav local stores first.
