    Pea puffers

    Thank you so much Andy. For now I’m going in a different direction but this is something I definitely want to set up for in the near future.

    Pea puffers

    Also does anyone know a good source for ordering these guys online? I’ve called everyone locally, I’m not even ready for them but I’m not gonna set up for them if I can’t find them 🤦‍♀️ no one has them and they can’t get them easily bc they’re endangered. One lady said they get them occasionally...

    Pea puffers

    Also this is a 1 gallon I got really cheap and couldn’t say no to. Could I potentially use this to hatch the brine shrimp and how?

    Pea puffers

    Thank you Andy. So I’m reading a lot about them needing sand for substrate… I’m a little nervous about doing sand bc I’ve never done it before and I don’t have the technique with the siphon mastered and from what I’ve read I’ll suck the sand out if I can’t figure out what I’m doing 😂 plus...

    Pea puffers

    I still want them! I did do some research on their diet. It’ll be significantly more expensive to feed these than all my other fish combined probably lol

    What's the best way to put fish to sleep, that are dying?

    I’m not going to have it in me to put my dog down myself, I’ll happily pay someone to do that. And I’ll also happily pay someone to stuff her so I can keep her forever lol, not lying.

    Pea puffers

    Ok guys I am currently cycling a 10 gallon and I’ve decided on pea puffers. From what Google is saying I can keep 2-3 in a well planted 10 gallon. So I’d like to get 3 but if 2 is better somehow I’d like to know that too! The other thing I’m reading is they aren’t great swimmers and to use a...

    What's the best way to put fish to sleep, that are dying?

    I always do an ice bath. I’m still getting comfortable with culling and taking out of their misery. My first option would be clove oil but I have no other use for clove oil and I have ice and water for free at my place. It’s quick and they don’t struggle. I’ve had a couple that even jumped out...

    I think my angel is depressed

    Like she’s fine she’s eating. But she just seems almost mopey. I really am starting to wonder if maybe she’s lonely. She has lots of tank friends that are other types of fish and smaller but she doesn’t have anyone like her. Now I know you guys have all warned about putting another angel in at...

    how do i catch fish?

    You definitely gotta be quick and play the game a little with them. Sometimes it takes patience and more tries than you ever anticipated 😂

    Aggressive red wag tail platy fish

    Oh my goodness sorry lol it’s public now haha The video really does no justice it seems like every time I go to record it it either stops or gets a little less aggressive so I was able to capture a little bit of it in the video but it’s definitely more than what you see here.

    Aggressive red wag tail platy fish

    I posted this to YouTube. I had to take this one out several days ago because I watched him going after another one of my platies. Prior to that I had removed a platy that was in fear and I couldn’t figure out why. Now the fearful one is back in the community tank doing great. But I’ve got this...

    I messed up today.

    Andy sager I was trying to get decent pics 😂 you know how that goes. But the “white spot” on the top of her by her head is where I must’ve knicked her. It was a pretty big decoration 🤦‍♀️ I’m hoping she’ll bounce right back

    Deer tick

    It’s not just this I’m overly cautious with this 😂 surprisingly I’m still enjoying the hobby. It’s a lot of work for sure. The biggest mistake I think I’ve made is going to doctor Google for advice. Like when I first got back in I had 2 betas with a divider in one tank. Decided to add 3 neon...

    What should I do with this platy?

    I always get a head count of my fish and this little girl or guy was deep in hiding, interested in food and would pop its head out but pop right back into hiding. No visible wounds or tears. The fish looks just fine. It drives me nuts not being able to get my counts in a timely manner plus it...

    Any idea what kind of snails hitchhiked into my tank?

    Well they can’t stay here 😂 I’m on top of it. I don’t even care what happens at this point I’m really upset about contracting these snails. I feel so violated 🤣

    Any idea what kind of snails hitchhiked into my tank?

    Any idea what kind of snails hitchhiked into my tank?

    So I’m trying something I found on Google. Please give me the feedback I need 😂 I went and bought a head of lettuce and put a couple pieces in my tank. From what I read the snails should attach themselves to it and I can remove them but I’m wondering why they’d favor lettuce over my live plants...

    Deer tick

    So when I was cleaning my tank today one of my nets had a live deer tick on it. Weird. I removed it and burned it but could a deer tick or any kind of ticks like that be able to feed on my fish? We have 3 dogs that are treated but they’ve still been bringing them in. In the last couple weeks...

    Any idea what kind of snails hitchhiked into my tank?

    The pics are kinda bad. Just noticed it today while changing my water. My daughter noticed she had some in her tank at her dad’s house this past weekend. I confirmed it last night and then found my own. I’ll be doing my best to remove all mine when we get into the moving process next month. She...
