  1. It happens, my fish are still too small to mess with most of my plants but when they get bigger I'm going to have to come up with interesting ways to keep them in the substrate. You will just have to try different things and see what works. Pots and/or weights seem like a good place to start though.
  2. I like sand, it's easy to clean and the fish look for food in it in a cute way. Although, because of this, it always looks like it's been raining in the aquarium. They make little marks in the sand with their mouths that looks like fallen raindrops or something. So if you want a smooth bottom, you're gonna have to move it around. I personally don't mind the "raining". But then again, I used to keep tropicals and the plants have always been important to me so I could never go without substrate.
  3. Cute critters! The video seems to be set to private though.
  4. I was thinking more about their digestion than their tastebuds. I've heard spices and spicy food is bad for most animals and that's why I asked. But if it's been tested it should indeed be fine. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
  5. I'm sorry I'm not making myself understood. It's probably me misstranslating "stark" from swedish. Will try to re-phrase. I was thinking garlic would be too spicy for goldfish. That better?
  6. I was simply thinking it might be a bit too strong for their non-existant stomachs to handle. So I had to ask.
  7. Some people have done this as well. Is it safe?
  8. If it's HUGE it could be two Tylomenia. But as already stated, it's really hard to tell without pictures. But then again, it could also just be a really big trumpet snails.
  9. I've not heard of feeding them minced up garlic before so I wouldn't know. I do know some people soak their food in garlic water. Which I suppose you could make yourself.
  10. Nice idea! I might even try that myself.
  11. wouldn't there have to be a huge amount of plants for it to change that much?
  12. You will know when you find the right one
  13. If you mix in more water with the peas maybe it will be more difficult for the fish to spit up. But don't take my word for it, wait for someone who knows more than I do to help you. I hope your fish gets better soon.
  14. 6th picture of the black beauty is hillarious! They're all really pretty though
  15. I hope your fish gets well soon, it's really cute.. So sad!
  16. I hope they get healthy and pretty fish for you I also hope you find yourself a camera!
  17. A little green always looks nice in tanks. Lucky thing your plants haven't turned into lettuce. One of my fish is as uninterested in my greens as they come. But the other one likes to nibble. he/she is still too small to do any real damage to the plants yet, fortunately he/she only likes some of them and they grow back quick anyway. Even tried to "teach" the other one to eat the plants, but it didn't work so well even if he/she did try for a while. I really like your piece of driftwood. It looks nice
  18. I do my water changes with buckets. However, I have a system! I drain the aquarium and carry the buckets to the bathroom (I live in a one room apartment so it's not that far) empty them, and then... My boyfriend fills the tank up again. (the reason I get away with this is because I'm kind of short and it's easier for him to fill it up again). Jokes aside, we should probably try to get a python or equivalent, but I'm worried about the faucets so it will have to wait until I have done a lot more research. But by all means it seems to be more helpful than anything else. Maybe you don't hear bad things as often because they're outweighed by the good things?
  19. I have some kind of regulator/adjuster or what ever I'm supposed to call it on mine. I think Sera is the manufacturer and I got it in a set containing the regulator, a check valve, an air-stone and some tubing. However, I suppose you won't need a whole set.. Maybe they sell them as separates? Either way, it's a tiny blue thing you attach to the tubing, it has a wheel you use to regulate the flow. But I'm sure there's a cheaper alternative out there, maybe something you could just DIY.
