Re: mixing feather fins

It looked like you really had a project going on there. I would really like to see it, but I'm limited because I'm not on Facebook. Are there any videos on YouTube.

Re: Advice on filter media setup

I am not familiar with the Cascade filters, but I will say that most canister filters I come across or have helped people with I generally swap out the material for mostly Eheim material, except where it will not work. If it is material that will keep digging into the wallet when it is time to repla...

Re: March BAP

Don't think that Facebook is the solve it all for low traffic. I really just think it is the hustle and bustle of society that causes people to concentrate and spend there time doing other things. I don't have social media accounts, and many people I know say they do not even respond to 95% of what ...

Be glad you don't live next door to me because you would have to call the cops to get me off the property. I have always admired at how you approach the hobby.

I am really a lot more concerned about the separation of of Talamancaheros sieboldii and Isthmoheros tuyrensis , two sister species into two different monotypic genus, privileging the somewhat different morphology but blurring their close relationship and common traits So going forward do you stand...
