Hi OFL. I have yet another question :P I want a BN pleco for my 29 gallon, and I know they need driftwood fiber to help with digestion. I bought something similar, Mopani Wood I believe it's called. It's real wood, it leaches tannins and all. Apparently it's some sort of African HardWood. My question is, will a BN pleco be able to get the fibers from this? Thanks!
Hey Ofl, I need to bother you with a question! Sorry lol!
Would my betta fry/ eggs (if and when they arrive) be adversely affected by mosquito repellent? The kind you plug in and it dissapates into the air like a room freshner? I've had my bettas with no problems with it on but fry maybe more delicate and I was wondering whether it would be a problem for them? Thanks :)
I was going to get Green Cabomba, which I think is good because it sucks up a ton of ammonia and propogates easily :) this is in like 1.5-2 months, I was going to wait until it cycles( to make sure it is, I'm waiting until about halfway thru October), get the tetras, QTing them, waiting, yadayadayada.....thanks for your help!
In a 29gal filtered tank with that stocking...you should be fine...and if you have lots of live plants-you could do 2....be sure to have some wood in the tank too-since BN plecos need it for digestion......and a cave or two for it/them to hide in and/or spawn in if you get a pair.....
Hi OFL, I know you breed BN plecos and was interested I getting one. I heard they need like 20 gallons of space, but bioload-wise will be good with 10 gallons per fish. I wanted it for my 29 gallon, which has 6 Zebra Danios in it right now. I was going to get 6 Neon Tetras in the future, after it cycles. The filter is a Top Fin 30, which does 150 GPH. My question is, would this be overstocking, and, if not, will it work? Thanks!
Hi there OFL!! I'm trying to help a new forum member with treating a betta with missing scales, which would normally just be AQ salt with clean water, but now the missing scale patches are turning fuzzy. I can't tell if it's just extra slime coat or if there is something going wrong. I would really appreciate it if you could take a look and give your opinion on it, the thread is called "Finnigan!!! He's not eating! </3" (he is eating now, which is good) and it's in the Emergencies and Diseases section. Thank you so much for your time, I don't want to give this person bad advice since I'm not 100% sure on what's going on with the fuzz!! D=
That depends...but personally, I don't think its a good idea, usually baffling the overflow or cram the filter box with polly-fill- is enough and if it isn't....then switch to a sponge filter...much better for long fin Bettas anyway.....
