  1. Nice fish and nice pictures. Helen, out of curiosity how big is your tank?
  2. My only worry is that there may have been fertilizer in the dirt they came in and it will like leech back into the tank or something, is that a valid concern?
  3. So I decided I would try to put the roots of some pothos in my tank to help keep nitrates down between water changes and also because I like the look of it. I went to lowes and found golden pothos, this will work right? Or do I need just pothos? My understanding is that I just need to tank the roots out from the dirt and wash them? Do I need to worry about there being some sort of fertilizer in the soil or something?
  4. How bout going barebottom and painting the bottom with textured spray paint to make it look like sand? That's what I did on my 120 and it looks just like sand but easier to keep clean.
  5. Thank you! Thanks for the kind words, the male is a blue spotted snakeskin, and the female is an Albino red spotted green. The fry will be albino intermediate which means they won't be albinos but carry the albino gene. Thanks! Thank you! I find that they look even magnificent when they are in a big display tank. Thanks Heidi!
  6. You can find pothos at Home Depot or lowes, they aren't that expensive...I got mine for around $5. It might be cheaper to get one local instead of paying shipping.
  7. Pretty sure this is one is the mom: Pretty sure one this the is dad: This pair formed in my display tank. Caught them shimmying and pecking at the cone and an hour or so later there was eggs. They ate their eggs on the 2nd day. I hope they will get it right soon. Anyways just thought id share.
  8. Good to know! I was having trouble finding it on Amazon anyway and was going to ask about the Hikari brand one. Found the Kanaplex though, as long as this is the right one... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ILL7ZF8/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_img?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3L1GY956MBQ8L&coliid=I1U57ZYD8T5EO1 Forgive my ignorance, what's a sponge filter, and could you name some brands so I know what I'm looking for? (Taken from google) http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002602SC/ref=pd_aw_sims_10?pi=SL500_SS115 Or you could go with something smaller depending on size of tank. I use the 80 gallon ones for my 37 and I have used it in a 20.
  9. What I would do Is get a small circulation pump and put it on a timer to come on a few hrs each day, make sure it's pointed at the dead corner. Something like this http://www.marinedepot.com/Hydor_Koralia_Nano_Circulation_Pump_Powerhead_Fixed_Flow_Aquarium_Powerheads-Hydor_USA-HD00715-FIPHFF-vi.html Or you could buy the next size up (600 gph) Good luck
  10. So would a gravel cap be a better choice? Thanks for the responses everyone!
