Hi AA. I have been on this site since I got my tanks and did a bad job of prepping my first tank. Through everyones great advice I managed to do a cycle in a full (5 small ruby barbs and 2 spotted corys) 10g planted tank without killing anyone. Thanks AA.
Im a 29 Male living on Oahu, Hawaii. I just started this Hobby. I have always have had pets. I got in to this because my girlfriend that I live with is allergic to animal dander. I guess Im becoming more domesticated as I get older(I garden aswell) and party less
, maybe this should be a sad face. I enjoy everything outdoors in or out of the water.
I plan to move most if not all of the residence of my original tank to a larger tank (They will eventually out grow the 10g) and put my little bros goldfish in the 10g, but that will be in a month or so. The longer I am doing this hobby the more I want to do. Saying that I have alot of Ideas and want to run some past you folks.
When changing the fish to the new tank after I plant and fishless cycle then new tank should I transfer the whole school at a time(5 small ruby barbs) or just a few at at time? When I first bought them I only got 3 and they were not happy till there were 5. When I move those guys over can I get the goldfish in the 10g with the corys? will it affect the cycle moving so many fish in and out?
Living Hawaii and I am wondering how easy is it to ship fish out here. Is it worth it and does anyone know a good LFS
or any breeders here? I found a few ok LFS
And lastly. There is a really nice stream and waterfall that goes back in to the valley behind my home and it has crayfish. Do you think I could just move them from the stream to my tank? how many should I get? and what should I keep them with, Goldfish or corys/barbs? is there anything i should be wary of in doing this?
Hmm this became little off subject from the introduction.
Well Thanks for having me here at AA and I look forward spending more time and money with this hobby.
