    Hi,

    If you ever do it again, try mixing it in a jar of water first and then pouring it in with the filter running. I have used a tsp of hydrogen perxoide per 5 gallons of water for decades as an...

    Hi,

    Cardinals are tricky but doable. First, make sure the LFS has the cardinals in a tank all to themselves -- very important. Make sure they bag them alone -- not with any other fish. Check the...

    Hi N,

    I think a pen would work but I'm not sure it is necessary unless you think they'd be eaten otherwise. Alot of killie guys have raised killies outside in ponds in the summer but they were...

    I usually post in the freshwater category but I found a fairly reasonably priced copy of Slack's Insect Eating Plants and I have to say it is a wonderful book. I'd recommend it to...

    Hi N,

    Yes, I had around a 100 tanks when I was mass producing gularis. As far as fry, I leave new born fry up to about a 100 in a 3-4 gallon plastic storage box for the first 2-3 weeks --...

    Hi N,

    I have never found killie fry to be that canabalistic. I am sure the Megalebias and Giant Notho are but the rest never seemed so to me, but then again I feed them well, use lots of live...

    gardneri rarely if ever need to be forced hatched. They want to see the world. Good news on the fry. I bet you will soon be drowning in gardneri. They grow quickly too.

    Hi N,

    Great news. Daphnia and BS are not so rich but anything in excess causes a problem. Feed well but small portions when in a breeding cycle and then feed the flakes and BS and daphnia when...

    Hi N,

    That female gardneri looks a bit too fat. I'd lay off the rich food for a bit as Fundulopanchax are so prone to developing dropsy and I hate to see you loose her. The males look great and...

    Hi,

    Hi N,

    Oh, they're definitely eating the eggs. Best ways to prevent that is to use a number of both floating and sinking mops; make the mops thick; watch to see when they usually spawn and...
