Re: What to do with a tank?

So which will it be? Maybe H. Orthogoniata would fit such a long low tank? Looking at the yoyos here, the height is insufficient.

Re: look what i found!

I too think keeping them healthy is the most important. guess who was out and exploring in full daylight today? Yes, the new big one :D. She swam in the open and even sat on the sand for a minute. She still doesnt trust me though. While she does make eyecontact and stays where she is, she does get r...

Re: I bought clown loach Number 7

I would set the heater back to 27. They have a working range, and water cools gradually. In the morning its probably still 28. Shrimps shouldnt be sitting still in a corner all day, nor should corys. They all come from areas with lots of sudden cooling rain. 0,5 'c cooling a day might be taking to l...

Re: I bought clown loach Number 7

HOT all the time. but one day, very unsually, a morning of rain. sun came back, hot air again, went swimmin...

Re: look what i found!

To be honest, I hadn't bought a new fish in ages, so I wasn't worried about diseases, and thus, I wasn't "trying to notice" things. These days, that I've been looking for things, I started "seeing" things :lol: :D why do you think i am making a point out of all this? :oops: :lol: I can't find much ...

Re: look what i found!
