Re: need help diagnosing gsp sickness

Do you ever soak his food in vitamins? I also have a 3 yr old GSP who lives by himself :). I feed him bloodworms, mysis shrimp, small clams, squid, shrimp, scallop, and fresh snails. Everything except the fresh snails comes frozen first. I soak all frozen food in a vitamin blend called VitaChem, whi...

Re: GSP sleeping

I thought I might add a few pics so that I could show what my little bugger looks like awake. I have had him for a bit more than three years. http://www.thepufferforum.com/forum/ug.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=35524 http://www.thepufferforum.com/forum/ug.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_i...

Re: Small bump on Jellybean, my GSP

Thanks Pufferpunk :). Thanks for your help, I keep trying to think where I went wrong. The only thing I can think was that I had run out of vitachem 3 months ago, and kept forgetting to reorder, or gave him too much shrimp/squid/clams and not enough snails (my snail colony not always keeping up with...

Re: Small bump on Jellybean, my GSP

I lost Jellybean tonight. I had him for only three years. I cried so much, I am going to miss him a lot.

Re: Small bump on Jellybean, my GSP

I wasn't sure if I should make a new thread or add to this one.....I have some developments with Jellybean's bump, and I am afraid they are not so good. 1) Ammonia: 0, Nitrite: 0, Nitrate: between 0 and 5, sg: 1.018, pH: 8.3 2) 75 gallon tank, 2 GSPs (one is about 3 inches, Jellybean is about 2 inch...

Leveling a tank

Hi everyone, I've been away for awhile--new job and no Internet! I just moved my 75 gallon from Michigan to Illinois, and set it up with my GSPs. They did not like being transported in buckets, but they are eating and look ok back in the tank now. I have set the tank up in my living room (rented apa...

Re: How long does driftwood last?

My driftwood hates me after 1 year in high brackish water. I "scrub it down" every week and use a resin filter in my Aquaclear to help with the discoloration of the water. It works okay for now, but I can't even tell you how much I hate dealing with it during every water change. Complete pita. I hav...
