Older plants will reach from the substrate to the surface. It's common for plants to grow with their leaves above the water. I've...

    Hydra in my apisto tank - seeking advice

    I've had good luck using salt to control hydra. They die off at low enough salt levels that it won't harm the fish or plants. Start with 1/4 tsp per gallon and add more daily until the hydra vanish then just do regular water changes which will slowly remove the salt.

    That fits with what I've been thinking. It would be nice if we could trust that fish that are sold with a collection site attached were actually from that local. I don't worry about the fish from the collectors but once they are widespread in the hobby or develop a name within the hobby I...

    MIke, I've been wading through the paper for a couple of days and find it interesting and troubling. It seems like additional testing will likely show many different species. Any thoughts about how hobbyists will ever be able to know what we have?

    RO Water Open to Debate!

    I use straight RO for all my apistos and have for more than 20 years. That said, I have very complex habitats with substrate, many plants, driftwood and often leaves in all my tanks. I think this environment gives them what they need. The primary reason I use straight RO is that it is the...

    Dwarfs in D.C.?

    Anyone know if there are any good shops for dwarfs in D.C.? Or, serious hobbyists/breeders? I will be there all week next week and might have some free time. Thanks

    It has been said that the British army wore red coats so that, if they were shot, their opponent would not be able to tell that they were bleeding. I guess that explains why the Packers wear yellow pants Go BEARS!!!
