  2. Brackish Water
    Hi, I am setting up a 55 Gallon brackish water tank. My original plan was to have bala sharks, pictus cats, glass cats and chinese algea eaters along with a few shrimp in with a violet goby. I know that the bala sharks will need more room eventually and was planning to change everyone over to a...
  3. Introduce Yourself
    Hello everyone! I have been out of the fish keeping game for about 2 years now. I wasn't able to move my tanks with me when I moved from Florida to Texas, thankfully I am getting tons of tanks for Christmas this year! I got into fish keeping because I like everything about it, simply put it...
  4. Brackish Water
    Okay, I have two tanks full of fish already, a 10g and a 20g, both completely freshwater, and down the road, when I'm in a bigger place and not having to deal with a restrictive lease agreement, I would like to get a third tank, but not sure what I would like to do with it. Right now I have four...
  5. Invertebrates
    Hi! I know it's been a while since I've posted around here. My tanks have all settled down and I was starting to get bored. Crabs are what got me into this hobby, and i really miss having them, so I decided to start up a little red claw crab tank. I found an old cookie jar for 3 dollars. It...
  6. Invertebrates
    I just got a female fiddler crab 3 days ago. I noticed that every night once it is completely dark, she goes into a corner under my cryptocoryne plant and her eyes are down, flat in their little slots. I assume she is just sleeping, becaue if i shine a light on herfor a while she gets up, and...
  7. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I would love some input on my tank. I've spent around $800 so far. I plan on adding a couple of small archers (when I can find them!), a columbian shark, and possibly a rope fish (my first one died of unknown reasons and will be doing more research before I get another one. A lot of the...
  8. Beginner Saltwater Aquariums
    Ok, I'm new to the hobby and a bit confused on my readings for my currently cycling tank. I have a 75g long brackish tank setup. SG at 1.010, temp at about 84, and ph is 8. It was seeded with one bag of live sand and a fairly good size ornament from a full marine tank. I have used Stability and...

  10. Brackish Water
    I have a 29 gallon tank and was thinking of converting it to a species tank for a single mudskipper. Unfortunately, I have limited knowledge about brackish water, so could someone please fill me in on brackish water and where to get mudskippers? I heard that also sometimes petco and petsmart...
  11. Brackish Water
    I recently got two new Green Spotted Puffers from a Walmart where they had them with guppies.... dont even get me started on that idiocy. But I took them home and I have had them for a week. They looked like they had fin rot and a fungus but when I acclimated them to the brackish water ( SG...

  13. Freshwater Journals
    Here are some pics of my 55 Brackish....just stocked it today. They will be moving to a 150 that is at my shop someday, but for now I want them at home. I'm weird, but I hate having fish at work, I hate that I have to leave them alone on the weekends or when I'm not working, lol. My apartment...
  14. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I recently purchased three bumblebee gobies and housed them in a 5 gallon tank. I am unsure of their previous tank's salinity so i put in enough salt for a 3 gallon brackish tank just in case. I bought them on a whim so I don't have very much to offer to them foodwise. I have freeze dried brine...
