Re: Macmasteri

Is there a place generally selling them online?

I went to a FS in Mass where I got my first pair, and when I killed them by accident, I went to get another pair, and they had none. Had to settle for cacatoides instead...

Re: Dwarf cichlids

This is a bad idea IMHO. West African dwarfs communicate aggression/submission very differently than South American dwarfs. This leads to some terrible territorial fights - and often deaths. Rams should be kept at temperatures higher than most other tropical fish. They are much more delicate and su...

Re: Lifespan in the plastic Bag...

I gave a talk on Apistogramma in Columbus Ohio Friday night where I got 4 A. nijsseni in the auction. They were all in one bag with about 12 oz./375ml of water. They stayed in a styrofoam box all day Saturday and flew home to Denver with me on Sunday. My guess is that they were in the one bag for a...

This is for the 'fish rebels'...

So who here is doing things that aren't on the scale as "acceptable", and have no issues?

Like Water changing every half a year (exaggerating.....Kinda..), or putting the wrong kind of fish together, and having great results?

Who here has heard the "it can't be done", then went ahead and DID IT??!?

Re: Is this really thorichthys maculipinnis?

I remember one day, about two decades ago I was wandering through shops in New York City, and I came across a pet Store on Lexington Avenue. It had the LARGEST Firemouth I EVER SAW! Had to be at least 8 inches! Ever Since then I've been trying to find an explanation for this. Every different species...

How sturdy is a 55 gallon tank?

So, I dusted off a couple of tanks I had in my house in Jersey, and brought it up to Massachusetts. a 10 gallon, and a 55-gallon All Glass Aquarium tank that I bought back in 1991. Before I brought them up, I filled them with water to ensure of no leakages. both were good. When I got up to Mass. I s...

Lifespan in the plastic Bag...

Going back to check on things I left behind in Jersey, and spend Father's day with my sons, and thought about some of the shops they have in Jersey. They aren't half bad. But it is a 4 hour trip from Jersey to Massachusetts (3-1/2, give or take where you are...), and I wanted to know if the fish wil...

Re: Outisde Canister filters. Which one to use?

Thank you sir.

Is it true that canister filters don't really provide as much oxygen, so I may have to add an air line into my tank?

Outisde Canister filters. Which one to use?

Hi, I'm new to the forum, and just getting back into the hobby of aquariums. I started out with air pumps and corner filters with filter floss, then worked my way up to hang-over-the-tank filters/pumps. Due to space constraints, I want to start up my 55-gallon tank, but with an outside/canister filt...
