Re: CANISTER VS HOB FILTER? HEATERS?

So, I sort of chickened out on getting the canister style filter. So, I opted for 2, Aqueon 55/75 HOBs that cycle 400gph, each. Not only do canister filters seem very intimidating to me but my fish really love to swim in their waterfall. We call it a "slide" & really enjoy the soothing sounds from i...

Re: My Clowns are FIGHTING! =(

I have a third question! LOL... sorry! #3 - So, not right away, but eventually we'd like to add to the number of fish we have. I'm wondering what sort of tank mates would intermingle with our current tank mates? Currently we have: 4 - Clowns 1 - Yoyo 1 - Albino Bristlenose pleco (this fish is a boog...

My Clowns are FIGHTING! =(

Hey everyone, So, we finally got all of the goodies we need for our new 75 gallon bow-front tank! We're upgrading from the 29 gallon tank that the big box "fish expert" said would be "more than enough" for my clowns who "wouldn't ever get much bigger" - HA! Anyway, so since the new tank is going in ...

Re: Attention Diana RE Skinny Disease

UPDATE!! My Yoyo finally started to look like a normal fish! I'm not sure what did it? It could have been the medicated food from Angels Plus, my healthy tank environment, good foods & appropriate feeding schedule, or all of the above (probably). Anyway, he's doing great he just LOVES my clowns & od...

Re: Medicated food seller on Ebay - anyone used them?

I purchased & used these foods. My opinion, is that they work wonderfully!! However, I used much more of the levamisole flake than he suggested. He suggests doing it once then again in 3 weeks, then you're done. Well, I ended up using it every 3 weeks for a total of 3 times & now I throw it in month...

Re: Attention Diana RE Skinny Disease

Thank again for another wonderful reply!! I received the food I ordered from Angels Plus & today they had their 3rd feeding of Praziquantel. I decided to start with this because I had already used that Levamisole that MAY or MAY NOT have been expired? Either want I didn't want to OD them - although ...

Since it's been in a dark bottle in the fridge. I tried some last night but no effects yet. I'm worried because my Yoyo th...
