Re: 3D WALL BUILD

Sounds good!

Do not forget that after applying epoxy, the colors tend to change as if you just freshly applied them (as if "wet"), this might change a bit when submerged, but is definitely something to keep in the back of your mind!

in any case... pictures! 8)

Re: Ridding tank of Malaysian trumpet snails

Thanks to all who posted. I tried several things, but it looks like the No Planaria really works! Thanks amiidae! I hit the tank twice and looks like it took most of them out, so maybe one more treatment will do the trick! Now to restock the tank. I guess I'll take out a second mortgage on the hous...

Re: Ridding tank of Malaysian trumpet snails

Apparently fenbendazol (which you can find in medicine against worms for fish and cats/dogs) also kills snails... (and accidentally rids your fish of worms as well).

Re: Pond mud for deep water biotope

How is the tank doing now? Can the fish still dig holes in the mud (I imagine that it can be hard to keep the mud in good shape).

and how are the filters?

Re: 1057 gallon tank - Deep water tang biotope

Woah, that looks like an extremely crammed tank!

I would not add even more fishes, but rather reduce the number of fish (e.g. stick to a nice school of cyprichromis with a pair of haplo's, combined with some neolamprologines).
You'll notice that the fish will display more of their natural behavior :)

Re: To be or not to (apart)?

As far as I know there is no such thing as "The Species Concept that always applies" - indeed the delineation of species very much depends on your perspective, and what you want to "mean" with two individuals/populations being from different species. Compare for instance the species concept in asexu...

Re: To be or not to (apart)?

Thijs (leuk dat je meedoet), I completely missed your post of Tuesday. Sorry about that. You are saying some interesting things. A couple of questions/remarks though. You state that natural selection favours assortative mating. I don't believe natural selection works that way. Natural selection fav...

Re: To be or not to (apart)?

Ahhh... this is an interesting discussion :D Now for me I have to agree with previous posters here that indeed the species concept to some extent is a human, subjective, effort to put "discrete" tags on a continuous scale. Lets go a bit into detail on this: A species is not an entity of selection an...

Should be the whole lake since I do have one for the southern most tip of the lake. Many thanks in advance! Adrian A full bathymetric map is ver...

Re: Where did cichlids evolve

As far as I know, their closest relatives all live in the Indian Ocean. The Etroplian cichlids are quite often regarded as quite basal, they live in India and Madegascar, thus another argument for the Indian Ocean. Therefore it could well be that cichlids evolved somewhere in or near these Indian o...
