  1. We are wanting to do a planted tank with maybe Chinese algae suckers or small catfish types, and a couple of shrimp or smaller fish. We haven't done one before, any tips/suggestions? Will be in a 30Lish tank. Obviously not one with everything listed. What is the best type of plant for beginners? Any hints or tips you have would be greatly appreciated!!
  2. I get the feeling this is going to be a huge event..... mostly as I cannot get there. Anyone want to share what they are taking..... and cool Tang's planned?

  5. I am having no luck in getting my pair of Pelvicachromis Taeniatus to spawn. They both display to one another regularly. The male has removed the females tail twice but it has now regrown. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
  6. I am currently looking at starting a tropical freshwater tank containing Electric Yellows, Electric Blues, and a couple of Silver Sharks. (Maybe a random Blue Dolphin as well?) So I would like some information on if this is wise, and what I would need to do to set this up and keep them alive. All comments are appreciated. Thank you. P.S. I saw a guide to tropical fish keeping on the internet, where can I acquire this? Free if possible, cause I'm a cheapskate. XD
  7. Ok guys I noticed a few people had some great info on how to get Electric Yellows to breed maore regularly and consistently so I decided I would pop the same question for maingano.. I have a large colonie of 17 that have not yet breed...At first provided them with alot of hiding spaces and caves then got impatient and striped tank of everyting except 3 terracotta pots and a small ship ornament.... Not sure what will get these guys breeding, may try to feed brine shrimp tonight and possible drop water them a couple degrees...? I stuffed, can't figure them out...any hints tips or insight as to what you would do will be appreciated... Thanx in advance to everyone for there responses.. tank is 4ft x 15x 18, Large internal filter as well as canister.. 17 maingano Matt
