150 gallon tank :D

Hey everyone I'm back :D after a very long and even more drawn out move ( we are talking a full year in limbo :P) I have lost nearly all of my fish and so I am completely free in terms of tank space. I just set up the 150 gallon I have been waiting so long for and since I'm stuck on what to do I jus...

Thats great! Really any relatively active schooling fish can be used as a dither fish i think, although depending on the size of your clowns you may not want smaller ones because they might get eaten. I'm not surprised that your clowns enjoy the surrent, tho; almost all (if not all) loaches come fro...

I'm back! And looking to start keeping loaches again!

Hey everyone! Because of our horrible move-gone-wrong,I haven't been able to get any new fish or set up any new tanks for over a year. Since the move also killed all of my fish except for 3 upside down catfish and a dojo loach (almost unavoidably unfortunately because of the circumstances), I have 4...

Finding Sinibotia

I had a sinibotia longiventralis a while back, and it was one of my absolute favorite fish! It unfortunately died, and I have been unable to find any since. I am looking for any species besides robusta. I live in CT. If anyone is willing to sell theirs or knows where you can get them online or local...

loaches+predatory fish?

Besides loaches, I have had one huge interest in a certain group of aquarium fish- predators. Ive had eels, sunfish, and all sorts of other stuff, and I was curious if there was any way I could use a 150g to combine a few of some of the medium sized botia (almorhae,kubotai,etc.) with one or two smal...

this also will sound cruel but rescuing fish just means that the store wil l understand a demand exists for that fish and order more. I am really sorry to say. This doesn't apply to the huge fish that someone takes back to the LFS. this doesnt exactly apply for rescueing goldfish because 1 was a fe...

Horay for rescues! I ended up using my science fair project as an excuse to save 3 goldfish from life(which would have been around 3 days) in a fishbowl. I actually have a dojo in with them right now. I think that if the snails are big enough they will eat them. My dojo ate 2 big snails once(the kin...

To be honest I have no idea whatsoever. I hadn't added any new fish for over a month and a half, it wasn't overstocked, and the water quality was fine. It may have been from using a net from my new goldfish tank in that tank but i'm not sure...anyway, the 1 survivor, my pleco, didn't show any signs ...

oh, ok. I was asking about the sunfish b/c I have a 4-inch pumpkinseed sunfish in my 55 gallon former loach tank,since all the loaches were wiped out by ich. Since it's currently my only heated coldwater tank kept at 68 degrees, i figured if i found sinibotia I could keep them in there for a bit. If...

Ok, I talked to my mom, so if you still have them by the time we move, we'll see if we can come by on a weekend. We both really love fish, especcially loaches.

Ok, I posted on the forum on Franksaquarium and I'll keep checking back there. I sent an E-mail to House of Fins-I've been there and it really is great, hopefully they can get some. In the meantime, I'm still willing to trade/buy if anyone here wants to, I just have to get more of them. I miss mine ...

Hmmm, I'm sorta nearby, I have a 150 gallon tank that I'm planning on setting up specifically for clowns, so I'll see if I can convince my mom. Well be moving in a few weeks and as soon as we move my mom will let me get new fish, so if you still have them by then I might take them.
