  1. Corys. !

    by , 03-21-2011 at 4:10 AM (My fish and aquatic adventures. :D)
    Peppered (if that is what they are, walmart just says 'assorted' lol) cories are SO cute!

    One pepper was added a while ago and seemed happy. Very energetic, trying to keep up with the khulis, swim with the otos, school with the neons, and even tried to 'school' with the bettas and gouramis! So cute and so funny to watch! Always comes to the glass when I wave, and waves back!

    Another pepper was added - last week? - and they are so adorable! The first one was so excited! ...

    March 27 will be my one year anniversary with Charlie.

    Bought at walmart as a late bday present in 2010, Charlie is the first betta other than Nadette to reach his/her one year anniversary.

    Happy Birthday Jiggy!

    He started out as a sad and not quite healthy, but brave fishie that sought to better his life through selling himself.
    This cute energetic boy quickly won my heart while looking over the walmart kill center, er fish center, and ...
  3. Neons: from 7 to 5

    by , 03-21-2011 at 3:05 AM (My fish and aquatic adventures. :D)
    I started out with 7 neons. 2010, Black Friday.

    First time I feed the fish live worms, one of the neons pigs out till death.

    Down 1.

    Vacuuming tank with new larger hose. Neons insist on staying near tube while vacuuming and one gets sucked up.

    Down 2.

    Will the saga continue?
    Stay Tuned!

  4. Anubis Growing Experiment

    by , 03-18-2011 at 1:22 AM (My fish and aquatic adventures. :D)
    October 2009 I bought an Anubis from Petsmart. As that is a very smart, reliable store, the instructions on package said to 'plant in substrate.' So I did. May 2010, by this time I had read more about Anubis's online and was under the impression they are like Java Fern and should be tied to something only and not planted, and I must leave the rhizome exposed (to light). So while I'm doing the big renovation of my 29g - changing the substrate from gravel to mostly sand (May ^), I decide to replant ...
  5. Java Moss Growing Experiment

    by , 03-18-2011 at 12:51 AM (My fish and aquatic adventures. :D)
    I noticed while keeping a betta with a tumor in a basket that I'd siliconed to the inside of the tank (she couldn't swim up very far but still loved diving lol) that the java moss grew really well in that location. Ie, close to the light, lol. So I came up with an idea. (I don't have that basket anymore and always end up with moss all over the tank, filter, water removed when vacuuming, etc.) I decided to try wrapping some moss around a cork (bag of corks @ walmart about $3) and tying it with ...
