  1. Ok i boiled and scrubed them. Think I am done aqua scaping for now. :flex: Will continue to test regularly to see if ther is any changes in water quality. Go ahead and laugh but I take a lot of fun fixing there little piece of river bottom, least that is the look I am going for. I redo it twice a week with each water change. :carrot:


  2. We have very soft water out of the tap. I add baking soda to raise the ph. Have read that shells can raise the hardness and ph. Thought a layer of clam shells would look nice. Would they also help to raise the hardness and ph. Of corse I would boil and clean them first. The shells are ones that stuff clams are served in so they are food safe. Would put them in a layer on the bottom. Has any one here tryed this?

  3. My fish love the plant roots. They will both get in the little basket. surprised it has any roots left. My fish seem to have grown since i put it in. maybe i should feed them more. Feel like i am over feeding now. but they eat every thing in no time. never any food on the bottom. They get fed at least three times a day. Still no algae in site, i think they eat any that develops, seen them nibbling on the fake plants.

  4. I have been rooting some lucky bamboo in the top of my aquarium. Stems in the water and leaves sticking out the top. Have decided to add pathos to this. My Moms house plants are very sickly right now. Our heat went out during the winter and we were forced to use kerosene heaters for about a month. I think the heaters hurt the plants. The bamboo cuttings i took look good. crossing my figures that the pathos will do as well. have a little basket, reusable coffee filter so it is food safe, below the filter spout holding the roots. Has any one else tried this, did it help your tank? Will it be OK to just leave them there once there roots start filling in?

  5. Been nusy helping my little sister get ready for the prom all week. lots of running around. So my brother decided he would help by feeding my fish. This morning he ask so can fish be over fed. water was cloudy any had an oder. Tested good though. Doind a 75 percent water change did not help the day go better. My sis just sat and stared while i worked. LOL Her hair got notted had to be cut, could not find her make up that we had pickked out, boy friend had no tux had rush rent him one, then she left the tickets here so a hour drive befor work. yaws. brothers in his room pouting. Lil sis and the fish are all cleaned up and happy. Im wore out just in time for work LOL. Any one here ever get to much help?

    Hope every one likes them. My little red cap has some fins on her. Think maybe a extra piece between her back fins.

    They are rather slim beside the ones i see here, hope they fill out.

  8. My local wm is a little better. The same lady has worked in the fish dept for abot ten years now. They treat the tanks and fish. They are kept clean and the water clear. Mostly it is when new shippments come in that they have yuck or dead fish. Though they will tell you they dont know much about the diff products they sell. We have another a little further away and it is gross dirty dark water the last time i was there. I think a lot depends on who runs the deptment.

  9. This morning I went to WM and got a gravel vac, a bucket, and fish pellets. Was able to vac the bottom; it was a lot easier. I will not worry about them eating any more though. I feed three times a day and got just some poo up with the water. Was not much at all. Got a diff brand of pellets. they did eat these tetramini, floats but after a min they sank. the bucket holds @ 4 gallons so probably took 3 out. Only a little got on the carpet. Was a lot smaller amount than i generaly take out, might make it an extra change and still do a big one on thursdays. Fish were scared and did not stop coner hiding until i put in a pich of flacks. My moore did not get sucked in though, which he does with the jug. Hope they get use to it and are not to upset. Think i will try the pellets at morning, the flacks at night, and either blood worms or shrimp for lunch. Does that sound like a good plan?

  10. I have the opposit problem. My moore sees me near the tank and comes swimming up to be fed. The red cap waits i have to run my finger up the glass to get her attention to the food. Dont know it might be a good thing the moore is such a pig. Dont have to worry about him starving thats for shure. his little head just jerks every which way to find food. Hope i found a compaitable pair any way. Try running your finger in front of him to the food that what i have to do, for the red cap, sense i put mine in a bigger tank.
