  1. Angelfish Trio?

    Know this is a post is a few years later but I was breeding angels commercially about 25 years ago & I ended up with a trio as well. Two males that both fertilized the eggs the female laid. Kind of interesting.
  2. Sexing Dwarf Gourami

    Those look like all males. Female are not near so colorful. I tried finding females once a long while back. It can be hard to find stores that sell them. Quite often if the tank is full of colorful fish it is all males. I am thinking your top photo is a powder blue male, your next photo is a normal regular colored male. The last one is a flame.
  3. Rams

    I bred Rams a few years back but I used R.O. water. I agree with biodives' post. It can be fairly easy to keep Rams with a normal pH but I have read in a number of places breeding is another matter. Yet, at the same time perhaps your pair just needs to learn how to raise their fry. False starts are not always a bad thing.
  4. Should I Move My Fry. L. Similis

    Some Walmarts have big bag of shells in their Arts & Crafts sections. There is a wide variety of sizes in a bag for twelve dollars. I have found the dollar store shells in my area to be a little on the small side. But in the Walmart bag I found lots big enough for my shellies & then some that were even big enough for my N. calvus which are a lot bigger than shellies.
  5. New Shellies Setup

    Some Walmarts have shells in the Arts & Crafts section. A big bag for under $12. They are a lot bigger shells than the dollar stores. I actually was able to split my stuff up & come up with some shells that were big enough for my adult N. calvus & had some for my multies. Was a really good deal I figure.
