  1. You nailed it on the naming convention.
  2. The eyes have it......or dont have it in this case. Great names for them. Pumpkin is gorgeous............. Dont ever let me know where you live cause I will steal them.
  3. One of my snails chillin on a rock. Look at the ham that tried to get in the picture.......Every time I try to take a pic Peaches jumps in my site but when I want to snap her she swims away. Go figure..... I like how their wens come out in the dark...... Miss Prissy Peaches .....and Copper Not such good quality as I havent figured out how to take good pics with the new Iphone yet. Will try some more later.
  4. Yes!!!! .......and gravel cleaning is also more difficult. These are the trade-offs for that almost leak proof construction.
  5. Here is a pic of my 46 gallon bowfront Sea Clear acrylic. Sorry about how crooked it is. I was holding my laptop up over my head facing down in true contortionist style to take the pic. I removed the light hood so you could see the top. The tank is 36 inches long. The filter is an AC110 and you can see that the filter slot area just fits it. Hope this helps.....
  6. Before you take everything apart, make sure it isnt just the plastic lid vibrating or something simple like that. (But I bet it is a dirty impeller as described above.)
  7. 7 months ago I paid $35 each for three 3-1/2 inch Ranchu's from a breeder. All 3 have great color and have been healthy from day one. I would not be willing to pay that at a pet store. Pet store fish are just not the same quality as what you can get from a breeder for a few bucks more. I see the price sign in your pic is $29. If I told you that you could pay $6 more, in exchange for knowing the fish's whole life history, get a fish that is already accustomed to being handled, and eliminate alot of the start-up health headaches, wouldnt it be worth it?
  8. I meant they are dead. Poor little babies. I will get some Prazi and API salt to keep on hand for the next time. I am not giving up on this. The challenge is out......
  9. Having to re-cycle the tank is a pain but it isnt the end of the world. Sure, I agree that there are better filter designs that could be used, but they are no where as convenient as a HOB.
  10. This will probably get me scolded but I must come forward. The students where I work stay for an entire semester for work study. They bought a Danio from the nearby petstore and had him in one of the tiny little beta cups. They passed him on to the next students and so on. The fish was with them for a whole year. My company stopped the program for a while and the last co-op student asked me if I could take care of the fish. I got him a one gallon bowl from the petstore. i put some marbles in the bottom and a skinny little plastic plant. I fed him one flake per day and changed his water twice a week. He lived another year. A two year life span for a danio under those conditions is pretty good. Im not so sure that if stocked properly a bowl couldnt make a good home for a tiny fish. A gold fish is too big for a bowl, but a danio would do fine in one gallon.
  11. I was using it when I had gravel. I think it is great. it allowed me to clean the gravel whenever I felt like it without having to do a water change. With me that was daily.........If i see poop in the tank I get like this
