The sad part is, they could have been in there for a week and I just wouldn't have seen them. WITHOUT a flashlight that is.

how long does it take for them to hatch?

I was hoping my plecos were a male and female but it looks like they both may be males. Awwwwh :(

Is there some way to keep plant debris from clogging up intake thing on my filter?

I think like 4-5 days, temp depending. From the few articles I've read.

But it is hard to see them without the light. It might have been that day. I suspect it was the cooler weather dropping the temp in the tank. That or the filter giving out so no water circulating.

Good morning!!

I have a feeling like I need to get up and go for a walk or jog. Or do something. I almost want to get a shower and then dry my hair and go down to a cafe or something. But I'll have to walk since the roads are too slippery for bikes.. But all at the same time I want to stay home where it's warm and do my work. Have a blah feeling.

I found more fry. :\ Gah, I've had enough of them... They have to be platy fry because I would have saw the rasbora's eggs, and there is only one male guppy with no females, and i did get a new female platy... They are like super tiny, maybe a millimeter long or two at most. I need to gravel vaccume too because the silly omega one first flakes food that they don't eat sinks to the bottom and fuzzes up. I can't do that because that's where the fry are hiding. I think I'll just go for it and be really careful, because I can't put the health of my other fish at risk. I spotted 2 fry so far. I'm not saying that for sure there is only two, because last time there was one, then two, then eleven, then twenty-one. I will have even more fry from the deformed platies i kept from the last spawn. I thought they were 3 ladies, but i now realized one is male when i saw them mating. Now the two ladies look really fat. I guess I am going to have to get rid of the male. Will this kill the females? They are healthy, just have really wonky backs. I didn't have the heart to cull them, so I kept them. On top of all of that I think I have the flu, and need to clean all three tanks as well as the hammy cage. :[

Kinetic, I have a couple tips for taming him. Don't take it out of the cage more than once a day, it can be stressful since before you tame them they think human equals danger. A tip I got from youtube is to leave a dirty sock in the cage by where they sleep, this gets them used to your smell. For the biting issue, you can wear some thick wollen gloves while holding him.

Sorry about the novel...

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Go to the cafe, and bring a coffee home to do your work. :)

I went into petsmart with $20 bucks yesterday. I was expecting to come out with some plants gravel and trees for the tanks. Instead I came out with 5 new bettas. Gaw

I've heard not to wear gloves as they can acclimate your scent faster if you don't. A piece of clothing that smells like me isn't a bad idea though! ^_^
