Does anyone have advice on how to treat ich ? I have 4 clown loaches, elephant nose, red-tailed shark, angelfish, glofish and one common goldfish. The clowns are the only ones with the ich right now. I am treating with AquariSol and raised my temp to 82 degrees. Any help would be appreciated.

I just wanted to say hi and sorry if I haven't been on in a while. I feel pretty bad about it. But I'm back. Yay. I'm sorry about the ick too. That's never good. have you tried a salt bath? That usually does it. Or crank up the temperature a little each day to around 80 degrees has worked before. Whatever happens, good luck.

I am sorry that your fry ate your other fry they look so cute in the pics. And i luv the variety in your tank they look so happy. I love tons of fish but my three favorite fish is gouramis,discus, and cichlids. My fish are doing fine but those pics are getting older now (like 3 months) and if u know a little bit about cichlids they grow real quick. so my jack and convict was about 1 1/2 in those pics, and now my jack is about 3 1/2 and convict is about 2 1/2 inches. So ya they got bigger. Well good luck and hope you excel, your fish friend from Nebraska

I bet there's tons of prep for the wedding. Is it still the brides family pays for it, lol. Or has that gone by the wayside with women's lib and all that? All my money went into my tank and down the bird's throats (bird food is so expensive) so thank god I don't have any kids to marry off! Enjoy, you'll have to post a pic of the bride and groom. Vote.

Lets see......add a little substrate one week......a few plants.....maybe that fish is just happy where it is! Maybe it needs someone to keep it company! could happen. It would make perfectly good sense to ME! Of course a vote.

My kids both live about an hour away from me. I see them a couple times a month. But we all have free nights on our cell phones, so we talk a lot. They are real good about sending me pictures on the computer. my husband and I are lucky we have good jobs. But our town is small so the kids had to go to a bigger place to get good jobs. I'll talk to you late. Almost have this week whipped. Here is a vote.

I resemble that remark......
Boy do I know just EXACTLY what you're talking about. I too have used the "quarentine tank" excuse. It worked great too up until I bought a new fish that REALLY DID need to be quarentined. By then the "quarentine tank" was full of live rock, corals and other fish. The excuse unravelled completely when I had to go out and buy another tank. And of course, once that fish came out, it was a shame for the NEW tank to just sit there all fish to keep it company......oh what the heck! WE ARE NOT ALONE IN OUR ADDICTION.

You sound like you can practice restraint. Me on the other hand, I haven't been running a year yet and I don't want to know how much I've spent. I have a cockatoo on my arm who refuses to get off making it very hard to type so I bid you a vote and goodbye for now.

Oh, if I had only known how broke I'd end up from the just gotta have its and what was necessary, maybe I would have thought twice too. Then again maybe not....I do love it and we only go round this once so we may as well enjoy it right? You obviously spend a pretty penny on your beautiful setup. Well friend, here's a vote.

No that was not a mis-type on the sie of my angelfish. I have hated putting him in there but I wanted new fish so bad in my 29 gallon. Please start voting for my Ryan Miller set-up. Thanks

Very lovely tank. Wish I had room for a big one like that. Isn't it a wonderful wallet breaking addiction? I don't think I've enjoyed a hobby this much ever! Vote for this tank as well as Fred.

My turn to laugh
That is funny. Welcome to a wonderful addiction!!! Bring your money, your time and every empty corner of your home and join in!!!!! There are just so many different plants and fishes and corals and invertebrates. How can someone be expected to limit themselves to just one tank?!?! When I had 9 going, three were part of an aquaculture system I had set up (took up all of what was suppose to be the guest bedroom). I had three tanks 6' long by 2' wide by 9" deep that I raised assorted corals in. Sold most to LFSs and a few to close friends. Figured out after a couple of years that after I paid for the salt, supplements and power bill, I was just barely breaking even.(Supporting the habit.) Got to where I spent all of my time doing maintenance and never had time to just sit back and enjoy. So that brings me to my ONE TANK. Hopefully this will feed the need, we'll see. Thanks for sharing that story, I guess it's not just me. Have a great day, and of course a vote.

Just dropin by
Thought I'd swing by and drop off a vote. I've kept a little freshwater, and to me saltwater is easier. Go figure! I seem to struggle with freshwater. Would love to try freshwater again, but I promised my wife when I took on my current project that I would keep only the one tank. (I'm already renigging, pushing for a nano for a mantis shrimp.) I'd probably get shot if I tried for another. A couple of years ago I had 9 tanks going at one time. She was more than happy to give up part of the living room to get me down to one!! Take care.

Hey if your out surfing pages stop by mine. I posted a new one of my koi angel. They are really growing fast and the bigger they get the more colorful they become. I also posted a picture of some of my platy and I got one (not the greatest) of my clown loach. He makes me so mad. He is always in the front of the tank showing off. Til I get the camera out. Left you a vote.

Just popping in to give you a vote. The weekends sure do fly by fast. I was sick all day today. I just got some supper down me and I feel ok right now. So I didn't get the things done that I wanted to. Will have to see if I can do a little extra each night this week to get things caught up. Hope you have a good week. Leaving you with a vote.

No eggs yet. But they are still cleaning on the filter tube. They wont let any of the other fish over in that part of the tank. guess I will just wait and see if they lay eggs. If so I am going to try to put them or some in the trap box. Doubt it will work, but I guess it is worth a try. I need to place a flower pot or a plate in that corner. It is fun to watch them. Leaving you with a vote.

I have a couple questions that you might be able to help me out with. I think that my blushing angels are a pair and they are showing signs of breeding. They have been very aggressive towards each other for a few days now. I read that they will flash thier fins and lock jaws. Mine are. The smaller angel is getting a bigger belly. (Maybe eggs) They are cleaning my filter tube.What I read said they will do that when they find a spawning site. How did you get your fry into a breeder trap? I would think if they lay the eggs, they will be stuck to wherever they are laid. If they live and start to absorb the shell , I should be able to see them start to wiggle. I read that it is rare to raise new fry in a comunity tank. But if I could get them into my trap. maybe I could get them started. Do you have any idea's for me? They say they will lay eggs every 2 to 3 weeks and that most of the time they fry are lost for starters. I can't see any eggs, but my angels are keeping the other fish away from that corner. Would the eggs be white or clear? Oh my, this is so exciting. I left you a vote...

Fry are so cool. I only breed guppies and have bred convicts before but it is still so cool to watch them swim around all on their own. Take care and here is a vote.

I am so excited about your cory fry. Is this the first time? My trap box is nothing fancy. I would say it is a 6x8 inch box. Has a v bottom insert that the fry can slip through. It only has the one holding tank, but it is big enough that I could put a couple female guppies in if I thought they were both close enough to the drop. I wasn't going to get one until I realized the fry could get sucked up in the filter. I hope the start of your week is going good. Here is a vote.
