- Hi, thank you for your consideration and your helps. They are very useful. It is very amazing to me you like aquarium! because in my country usually men like aquarium and women don't reluctant to that. If you have Facebook page I will be happy to be friend with you and share our experiences
- Wow, where do I begin. They need to go brackish, but once you realize how limited you are with any type of fish in brackish, and how expensive water changes get, most go full marine with these guys. That's what I've done. You can add SW fish (with caution) while they are young, and things should be okay, but never completely safe. GSP's have lots of personality. Do as much research as you can. They aren't for everyone. I like mine, and I'm not going to rid of him, but so far, I've added yellow tail damels and things seem fine. Dwarf puffer would be much easier and less expensive. I've now not only upgraded to a 75 gallon to house this GSP though his life (they get 6") but bought live rock, and a protein skimmer. Thank God for Craigslist :)
- Congrats on the baby boy! What is his name? How exciting. I'm using the one you recommended, Elite sponge filter, running with an airpump. Working out okay. Makes a bit of a bubbling noise, which I'm trying to minimize :)
The plants are doing well, so far. Duckweed and frogbit grow well. I'm always thinning out duckweed in my tanks. The anachris and floating pennywort, doing fine too. It's only been a week, but I don't see signs of the plants dying.
- GwenInNM, Sorry for the delayed response. Wife gave birth to our baby boy the day you posted so had the week off (forgot how much work a little one was lol) Please keep me posted on how the plants do with that LED, you might have some issues with the stem plants, seems like a lot of floating plants for that small surface area. I would love some duckweed but can't find it anywhere around here. What kind of filter did you decide on for your shrimp?
- Thanks thinking about me. We just drove home last night, from a few days in Phoenix. Our 12 year old daughter is having a great time in Northern CA, where she is visiting a friend that moved there about a year ago. My rams and Cardinals are doing great. They've laid 2 batches of eggs, but they never make it. They eat them after about 2 days, and they don't look fertilized to me, so we'll see how it goes over time. I really like them, they are my favorite fish. My other tank is doing good too. How about you? Happy New Year! I hope it's a fantastic one for you.

Posted On: 07-16-2013, 04:07 PMOh I'm sure it has to be. I didn't realize how much I would love with fish when I got him. I was lazy with his name. Our female betta's name was Minaj. My stepdaughter named her. I liked that.Liked On: 07-15-2013, 01:44 PM
