Consider any fish you keep with a fahaka as food reserves.

Re: Crayfish for food?

I have been buying them for decades without any issues. It does suck that your LFS takes wild ones in for store credit though. I always assumed they were purchased from breeding farms.

Re: My new Hairy Puffer

I wouldn't be too concerned about his teeth then, pellets/sticks are pretty crunchy. His diet does need to be varied though.

Ammonia? Any nitrite is toxic & 4 is deadly. I'm very surprised they are eating in that. How was this tank cycled?
Rule #1: Never buy an unhealthy fish.
Treat them all

Re: Using well water in aquarium

I don't think Prime is the cause. It detoxifies unwanted chemicals/metabolites.

Re: Help new Tetraodon schoutedeni

It is but should resemble closer to your tap. I always suggest 50% weekly WC or larger.

Re: Help new Tetraodon schoutedeni

I'm wondering what is causing your pH to be so low. It concerns me that it isn't closer to your tap water. Start doing 50% weekly WC or more.

Re: New Tank!

If you are adding 20 drops of ammonia to achieve the desired ammonia level & see nitrite, then start adding 10 instead.
