Re: grommit's (Brian)

I hope you feel better again soon Bri.
Hopefully you can still enjoy the fish, snails and shrimp as often as possible. :D

Re: Bronze Corydoras in with Betta

Just keep your eye on them. The betta may get grumpy enough to start nipping the corys' fins.
Mine did, even with rabauti corys who are about the same size as aeneus (bronze).

Re: Betta tank suggestions

Bettas need to take in air to the labyrinth organ. If the tank is full (as they should be to work as designed) then they cannot get that air. It's not just O2 in the water with any labyrinth fish. ;)

I think gobies would be the only reason I'd ever consider a marine tank. ;) :D

Oh, and I'm not considering one.

Re: cleaning glass?

Water changes weekly. Glass clean when I can be bothered, but the snails/plecs/otos keep it pretty good anyway. All internal filters, so (as I have 4 tanks) one each week except for one week when I leave them, just doing water change. The Trigon I just do one sponge at a time so it takes about a yea...

Re: The Sunnyside 300

I don't think Beyonce would stay in there long enough......the Stones might though (except you'd get loads of alcohol and fag ash in the tank - man).
I don't know how to move mountains, not Mohammed (or was that just PR?). ;)

Re: Male Betta in with other fish???

Agreed, I'd be very loathe to recommend a betta with cichlids, although it may work in an even bigger tank - I've seen a betta with discus before in a 5' tank.
