  1. Hmm... It doesn't look particularly hairy... I can try a different light schedule like Lucerne and see how that goes?
  2. I'm thinking that it might be black algae, but I'm no algae expert It's popping up in random areas of the tank, but this is the biggest area of it... What's causing it? Is it harmful? I've been battling brown algae as well, but I just scrape it off.. If you look close it has some light green spots: I'm sorry for the really bad camera quality!
  3. Oh wow, look at those breeding stars! He looks like he'll be a ladies man
  4. Lucian Calcifer Norman (Walking Dead kick ) Gerome I love names
  5. Congrats on the new babies! Spring is the season of love after all
  6. Aww She's so pretty! And huge! What on earth is in your water!?
  7. Thanks Alex So, just curious but how many Prazi treatments should I give LT? He's coming up on 3 tomorrow . His MM's end on Thursday too. Thanks again for all of the help!
  8. Alright! Thanks so much! I'll start pestering him now lol
  9. It was a true blue aquarium for fish that he converted from what he said. I can email him for more details if you think its worth a shot?
  10. Alright, I know it's a really stupid question, but can you convert an old snake aquarium into a fish aquarium? I'm guessing the answer is no, but I wanted to double check lol. It's 100 gallons and pretty cheap at $150. Thanks guys!
  11. I forgot yesterday Happy Easter guys!
  12. Hurrah! I'm so happy the little guy pulled through! Fishies are so tough
  13. Thanks so much! Its looking like he has some tiny fin rays where is pelvic fins should be ! I hope they start to grow in soon!
  14. Thank you! She's a tough little girl for sure! Silly as can be too. She's one of those fish that will let you touch them lol Thanks so much Helen! You were such a great help!!
  15. Awesome! Thanks for the info! He's got what looks like a tiny fin ray where his anal fin should be so that might grow back. Its kind of hard to see if he has fin rays anywhere else since hes so tiny and quick. I guess we'll find out eventually! Oh I know! Isn't he just amazing ? He's such a tough little fish! As long as he is happy, so am I!!
  16. I know! My LT is twice that size and I'm still worried about him and the siphon! At the same time, I wish he'd stay small... He's already gotten so big in the week I've had him! I can't wait to see more of your babies!
  17. I believe I have some pics of her up, somewhere- but, I can always post more! Hehe. If there are no fin rays there, no fins will grow. If you have fin rays, the fins might grow back! In Tater's case, I am pretty sure it is a "birth defect", so to speak. No fin ray at all, and the little nub, where it would attach, is seriously under developed, as well. Not sure if it's the same cause for your little cutie, but he is doing just fine with the wonderful home you have given him. oh wow I'm definitely still learning... Um what are fin rays exactly? Are they the skeleton structure of the fin? He has tiny little nubs where the pectoral fin should be, but I don't see any type of skeletal structure attached. I wonder if he'll be like Tater?
  18. I plan on it! That is.. As long as this camera don't disappear like my other two did
  19. Yes they do!! I'll take a bit of the credit, but you guys really are awesome!
  20. Thank you, I'm doing everything I know how to! I'm so happy that he's doing so well now I know! He scoots around so well! It's almost like he uses it as a little propeller or some thing! That would definitely be something worth looking into... It looks like he's trying to grow back a little anal fin so I'm hoping it's something treatable. If not, I'm still thrilled . All of my other fish are a little different too . I bet tater is a cutie too! Do you have any pictures of her up? And remember: If it wasn't for everyone here I'd probably still be an ignorant fish keeper lol! So in a way, you guys helped save him too!!
  21. Hi all! I first joined Kokos awhile back when my Moor Dexy had suddenly been struck with Dropsy. I had prowled the site for awhile but was too shy to jump in... I was devastated when she became sick.. She was/is my little baby! I had searched and searched for help nearly everywhere! The Pet stores in town were of no help. They just offered me QuickCure and said they hoped she'd make it through... When things looked it's darkest for Dexy and I, I made one of the best decisions I had ever made: Joining Kokos! After a few short weeks of constant water changes and the patience and guidance of everyone here, Dexy made a full recovery (and even had eggs ). I just wanted to say thanks again for everything you all have done for me, Dexy, Klaus, and my new family member LT. Thank you everyone for being so awesome, and thank you Alex (1 and 2), and tithra! If not for the guidance of you three I don't think Dexy would be with me today! Before everyone's help: And here she is now after much help and learning! I love Kokos!!
  22. I know right!? He is so cute! I swear he didn't rest for the first two nights he was here lol! I like that word zippy... fits him perfect! I'm proud of you for saving for this little guy! What a cutie! Aww thanks! I couldn't leave him behind... Not with that face! I know! I was really surprised at how well he swims without a current shoving him around lol
  23. Oh my gosh! He is adorable! Don't be surprised if he goes missing from your tank one of these days !
