  1. Hi everyone, I just purchased a hot glue gun, and was wondering if the glue for those machines were aquarium safe. I want to use it to glue my anubia to rocks.
  2. I know to grow lucky bamboo in a tank it can't be fully submerged, or it'll rot, but I planned on just sticking it in my tank. However, I heard somewhere that the roots are toxic to goldfish if consumed. Is this true? Do I have to put the bamboo in a container with substrate or can I just put it my tank with the roots exposed?
  3. I have an unused 10 gallon aquarium that I would like to keep a beta in, I know they're jumpers, but I was wondering if a lid would still be necessary if I only kept the tank half full? I don't plan on adding a filter, just heavily planting it.
  4. So I was at my local fish store today and they finally had nerite snails in stock!! I heard they were good at getting rid of brown algae, and minimal waste producers. Anyways, while I was looking at the tank and thinking about which ones I wanted, I realized I had no idea how to chose a healthy nerite snail. I know for fish you generally observe their fins, body, and behavior, but the snails really didn't do anything besides stick to the glass or the ornaments...and completely motionless... The first thing that came to mind was to google it, but I really didn't get any good results. Then I also realized that I really wasn't very educated on nerite snail care at all. Since I trust the members of kook's the most when it comes to my aquatic problems I thought I'd ask everyone here. Aside from general care and requirements, some of questions I had in mind were: Are they good escape artists? How would I introduce them to the tank? Do they really produce minimal waste? Quarantine procedures? My current setup is a 29 gallon tank with two goldfish, a comet and a common. They're still fairly small, and the common seems fairly stunted, but I think the tank will suffice for now. The tank should have 300 gph filtration and it has an air stone connect to a tetra whisper 40 air pump. I also have two anubias in there and I just bought some anacharis today, which I'll add to the tank after I bleach it. I was planning on adding two nerite snails. What do you guys think? Oh, and do you think 2 for $10 is expensive for what I believe are zebra nerite snails?
  5. I'm not exactly sure of what you mean by "knob," but thank you for all your help! I have the air pump up and running
  6. It's been an iffy kind of week and I'm just so frustrated right now... That aside, I ordered the tetra whisper air pump along with airline tubing, air stones, and check valves from amazon but I have no idea how to put the thing together.... So here's a picture of all my stuff, the thing that's confusing me the most is that black piece in the middle....I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it....
  7. These are celestials And these are bubble eyes
  8. He beautiful What about Julian? or Nicholas? or David? I'm not really good with "regular" names
  9. Anubias. Definitely. I keep one in my goldfish tank with indirect sunlight.
  10. If you live in NYC, you should definitely check out Coral Aquarium and Pacific Aquarium. Good lines I can't assure, but they do carry rare breeds. Pacific Aquariums has larger goldfish that retail for $50 and above that look mostly healthy. Once I saw this really stunning large calico oranda, and the last time I was there I saw a really nice looking large lionhead for $50, and large ranchus for $130. They also have smaller goldfish that they sell for $6, and those can be either a hit or miss. Coral Aquarium has the cheaper prices, and they always have a nice selection, but they generally cram a lot of small goldfish in the little tanks and most of them tend to be sick. Although they also have bigger tanks that aren't as crowded that contain bigger goldfish (Usually Orandas and Ryukins) that are priced between $7-$20.
