  1. T5Ho Light Not Working - Replacement Help

    Did you contact the Amazon seller for a refund or replacement?
  2. Fish Dying

    This is the reason one should always quarantine fish before adding them to your main tank. May take a little room but in the long run it is better to treat them if needed in a smaller tank then spend major money on meds for a large tank. I learned my lesson the hard way and now quarantine all fish no matter the source for up to 6 weeks- sometimes even longer but that is usually overkill. You can observe them better then in a large tank and can spot problems early. I just bought 15 ember tetras in early July from Big Als but in Edmonton. None have died and they will stay in their quarantine for a while yet as they are young. I have found that liverbearers tend to get sick fairly easily and they are not long lifed fish to begin with. Worms, ich, stress ... can make them drop like flies. I once lost all my black guppies in one tank as it had ich- they got stressed and even with meds and heat treatments they all died. The ember tetras and cories with them didn't even get a spot, Good luck with your tank. may it get better soon.
  3. Hello From Saskatchewan

    HI welcome, you are most likely getting that message because you have not posted 5 posts elsewhere on the site. The site makes it this way so that people don't only use the classified area only and are part of the forum. Hope that helps.
  4. Hi From Vancouver!

    Welcome and I have to say I love your shrimp and that tank is beautiful!
  5. Downtime

    We all know you have a life. When AA went down from October 29- ~November 9, it was a shock as it is a very dependable website. You do go through a period of fish post withdrawal. PM and posting was totally down. Glad that you have a email that we can reach you at if something happens. Thanks for keeping our fish forum active and running. :thumbs:
  6. Rip My Well Travelled Cory..

    Sorry for your fishy loss. :cry: I just lost a panda cory tonight also, so maybe they are in heaven swimming together.
  7. Saying Hi!

    Welcome :welcome: Always nice to see new people join the site.
  8. Corydora Duplicareus Eggs

    You could just concede the cories to me at the auction. :boxer: They want to come home with me! LOL :rofl: :heart: You could try cichlids-I have smaller tanks so no cichlids for me.
  9. Corydora Duplicareus Eggs

    Yes there is a superguppygirl. I am the original Guppygirl! It can get confusing as we both love cories. So far my duplicareus have given me 5+ fry they are so so so cute. Now my bronze are breeding too, will see if any survive.
  10. Corydora Duplicareus Eggs

    Thanks for the info. I am just glad they are happy and breeding again. Any fry are a big bonus. They were in a 20 long planted and were not happy and they kept dying one at a time, lost 5. As a last ditch effort put them in a 10 gallon with java moss and now I have fry. So maybe the adults are having a snack but some stay hidden to hatch.
  11. Corydora Duplicareus Eggs

    Hi to anyone who has breed corydora duplicareus how many eggs do they lay at one time? My 5 have been breeding regularly since Christmas and now have 5 fry of varying ages. So was wondering how many they lay. I know that bronze and peppered lay huge amounts in large grouping and pandas lay one at a time and it it is likely so do the duplicarus. They are in a tank by themselves with huge clumps of java moss. Thanks.
  12. Hello!

    Hi welcome to the forum. :welcome:
  13. New Rams

    What are your tank numbers for your ram tank. I got some gold rams also at the auction, but mine are still quite young. I would eventually like to breed them if I have a male and female- I am not sure.
  14. Auction Time!

    Was wondering if anyone knew of who was the seller of the gold rams. Their id was 272-14 on my bag of rams. Don't even know if they are part of the forum. Was wondering what they were being fed? I don't really want to change their diet too much if possible. They are very nice, but young and I want to keep them alive.
