    Green Terror/Gold Saum fry

    My terrors bred in January and all of the fry are large enough to go to new homes. They're still too small to identify the sex. The male is a balloon/dwarf GT and the female is normal GT, so I have no idea if the offspring will be balloons or not, but none of them look to me like they have the...

    Aquarium braces - urgent help needed

    I have a 210 gallon aquarium (7' x 2' x 2.5') and tonight all of a sudden the 2 braces broke off and fell in the tank. The braces were at ~28 inches and ~56 inches. From what I have read, this could be a sign of aquarium bowing and impending failure, so I am draining half of the water and moving...

    Cutting your own path. The igarape as an aquarium subject?

    Have you ever heard of an igarape before? It translates roughly as "canoe road" in the Hengatu dialect of the Tupi language (spoken all over the Western Amazon region), and that's just what it is: A little jungle stream that is used by indigenous people in Brazil to navigate through the rain...

    That "other" benefit of routine aquarium maintenance...

    Have you noticed that, after you change the water in your tank, it just sort of takes on a....sparkle-or something? Like that "healthy glow" on a beautiful woman's face when she's happy (sorry for the utterly chauvinistic example, but I AM a guy- and that came to mind quickly at 6:30AM...), an...

    "Rights of passage" in the aquarium hobby...

    Seems like just about everything we do in aquarium keeping invloves some sort of "right of passage", or "barrier to entry" before you achieve exactly what you want to achieve, right? see this with crystal clarity with the "New Botanical" style aquariums we espouse so much here: A week or...

    Aquarium Center?

    Does anyone know if that place is still there? I remember years ago it was a pretty good store but I haven't been in almost a decade. I looked it up but reviews I found seemed outdated and sounds like it went downhill at some point.
