Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Today I bought a pair of bettaautolinker.com autolinking image Splendens, a male and a female; a pair of mickey mouse platies, a male and a female; and three guppies, two male and one female. I also bought one gold and one blue mystery snail, and five glass shrimp. They all went into a ten gallon aquarium on my writing desk, along with more plants than should be allowed... seriously, folks, I don't think I've ever seen so much Anarcharis in one place before... it looks really beautiful, though.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Mystery snails shouldn't be to hard to control. You need a male and female and they lay their eggs above the water line and takes awhile to hatch so easily to remove.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Sure, the dragon is just a colormoprh of the bristlenose. Max out 6 inches for the biggest ones I have 4 in a 15 as they are small and not sexed yet but then if I get a pair out of them there will be 2 to the 15 gal.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Just added a new member to the fantail family today, as a holiday present to them!

He -- or she -- is a Calico Fantail that we have named "Keiko"...so, that's four fancies in our 60-gallon. We'll probably do one more and that's it because these guys can grow BIG.

Keiko, though, is unfortunately being harassed around the tank by "Sunny," our all-orange fantail. But, he/she is eating just find and seems to be happy in the new tank.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Update on our latest addition, "Keiko"...

It seems this Calico has become the aggressor, chasing Sunny and the others and nipping at their beautiful fantails and veiltails; at times the others will nip back, but Keiko has become the aggressor for the most part, and this concerns me...

I wouldn't worry about it. They probably just need time to settle in.

Thanks, Saphire...

It's so funny that you have chosen that screen name -- we named our car "Sapphire" and she's a metallic blue color...

As for the fish, what would make them go tail nip happy in the beginning like that? Does this honestly settle down?
