    I like the natural look, and love planted tanks.
    Other interests include movies, skiing and spending time with my wife, kids and friends. :)

  1. The pic is blurry, but it looks like a wound to me with a bit of an infection. Keep the water clean and maybe add an alder cone or almond leaf if not already in there (they seem to help keep fungus away naturally), and it should clear up shortly.
  2. If you have good husbandry practices, rams can be added just about any time; but, a lot of people have trouble with them in newer tanks. Good circulation, plant health and some MTS to keep the substrate fresh will help keep them healthy. Dwarf gouramis are cool, and males are readily available in a few different colors - they tend to get along with most other fish.
  3. 12 more Cardinals, 8-10 orange-lazer Cory's, 6-8 marble hatchets, 2 angels (get them small enough that they can't eat the Cardinals and they should leave them alone when they get bigger). This is assuming that when you say planted tank, there is not much of the substrate visible. Feed the plants well (I prefer the Estimator Index method of fertilizing - see the pinned topic in the Planted Forum), and your fish will be happy. If your tank just has a few plants, just go with 6 Cory's and the angels, or plan for large WCs a couple times per week.
  4. Is anyone from Edmonton heading down and able to bring home a couple bags from Harold(Fairdeal) for me?
  5. An infected wound. I haven't medicated my fish for years, so I only know off hand what would help. I do know people who've had success spot treating fish with malachite green, but that was a while ago - not even sure it's available anymore as I believe some ingredients are carcinogenic
  6. I think John put in the order last night... PM geleen ASAP to see if you can still get in
  7. The live foods mentioned above stay in the water column a while, and when frozen they don't sink very fast - sounds like your best bet.
  8. As long as you're a member of CAS, you are allowed to sell in the ACE auction. I'd touch base with the auction coordinator to make sure there's room - I believe it's still Michael and can get his email off the ACE website
  9. There are a few brands of food that make a micropellet - my favorite is New Life Spectrum
  10. Endler's Livebearers would be a good choice - I've raised them mixed with shrimp and both populations grew. As would any of the smaller rasboras - add emerald to your list. I think a good sized school of cardinals would be a bit big for a 5 gal tank. You'll want at least 6-8 for a schooling fish, so I'd stick with fish that stay 1" or less.
  11. Do it at night with a flashlight
  12. I think I remember hearing about someone bringing them in last year sometime. "It'll just grow to the size of the tank" is one of the worst "OK Fish Practices" I know.
  13. I've got lots right now. Shoot me a PM for some pics. I'm in the process of setting up a 180gal tank and will probably use a piece or 2... or 8 for it, so come get it before I put it all in the tank!!
  14. Welcome! What size of tank(s) do you have? Are you looking for African cichlids - I've got some young adult Neolamprologus leleupi for sale?
