Re: DPs and planaria

Seriously picoverd, the key to dealing with this is to change the conditions that are supporting them.
Clean the place up.
Also, your tank is grossly overpopulated.
Thin out the herd.
It's all about the fish!

I know why Planaria appears. Does anybody know why DPs don't attack Planaria, if they don't?
maybe they don't taste good

Re: Confusing reoccurring problem, DPF

Hi All - Sorry for the slow reply - I didn't see the topic post and so I missed the replies. Seems to me that grossly overstocked is a bit of an overstatement. but I do highly doubt that they are so inaccurate that they don't register any nitrite in an ammonia-polluted tank. But I am wondering if t...

Re: Confusing reoccurring problem, DPF

10 gallon tank grossly overstocked, should have no more than 2-3 in a 10 gallon under the best of circumstances!!! Pleco would be compromised by itself in that tank. Test strips are very inaccurate, need liquid test kit. I'd be willing to bet that you have an ammonia problem with such a crowded tank...

Re: Amazon pea puffers and angelfish

I was wondering if Amazon pea puffers and angelfish could get a long together in 55g aquarium, its heavily planted with and has lots of driftwood and hiding places. I mainly want to use the the puffers as snail maintenance and they could later be moved to their own 40g. I'm not worried about bioloa...

Yeah, maybe a few more cichlids so they’ll “play” with each other and leave poor puff alone!

Re: Figure 8 Puffer compatibility?

Clewliss, do you remember this......................? yes.. they will 100% harass the snail until it dies and they will eat it, they'd probably also do the same to any other fish species. Puffers don't play well with others. please, please, please do not experiment with living things you asked for g...

Re: How do dwarf puffers do with moving?

I moved all my fish (including Dwarf Puffers) in new Home Depot buckets with lids, air stones, air pump, and auto inverter to run the pump.
It was about a 10 hour drive.
The temperature remained stable with the car's heater/AC system.
