Start raising pond snails. From the info I read frozen black worms are great. And once a week throw in a hand full of pond snails. As pea puffers don't seem to have the issue other puffers have with needing to grind their front beak down on shelled food.

Hello! I'm looking for two things. But first...
I'm trying to get my four year old niece interest in aquariums since I hope to share the hobby with her as she grows. As such, I want to create a tiny self sustaining aquarium containing some plants and 2 brightly coloured shrimp (so they are more eye catching for her).
What I'm in need of:
1)Advice! If anyone has tips on the  best way to go about doing this, what sort of container, if filtration is needed, if water changes will still be needed in a sealed environment, etc, that would be great!
2)If someone has any shrimp that really pop out, I'd love to buy 2 from you (of the same sex, please). Cherry red, crystal red, crystal black are all lovely examples.

You can buy a few Rams Horn and they will breed like crazy giving you a constant supply. That's what I've been doing for my clown loaches.

Nothing to report yet.

Some days I want to drain it and put it back in the box, but for now I have the tank running, just to let some biofilm develop on the glass and plastic in case I do figure what to put in it.

Whatever I decide on will need to be ok with the temperature at 79-80, as that's what the Aquatop heater in it holds the temp at.

I'm looking for some live food to feed my Pea Puffers. I can pickup within Ottawa.

I've been pretty lucky with my CPD's in that they have never been shy. I keep  them with two endlers though so I think they let the guys no its safe to come out and play about.  Smiley

Any updates on what you plan to stock?

great, thanks for the advice guys. I think I will look to get an aquaeon one to try it out as It's just going to be a simple airstone, hidden in the back corner. I think it will be good.

Thanks for the opinions Cheesy

Hey guys and gals,

I wanted to ask again for everyones opinion on something.

I recently had to move my HOB to the left side of my 40 gallon breeder and since doing that I have noticed some detritus being left on some of my plants on the right side of the tank.

I was looking into it and was thinking of getting a powerhead to aid the flow on the right side of the tank. So I have a couple of question for you?

If I were to get a powerhead where would be the best place to put it, I imagine opposite the HOB. Would I then direct the flow to make a circular pattern in the tank or would It go directly against the flow of the HOB?

I keep very small fish in my tank. So would it be advisable to get a powerhead that is below the recommended GPH so its a little gentler on the fish or should I go for something recommended for 40 gallon breeder?

last question is......Is it worth just adding another HOB to the tank instead of a powerhead? Obviously this would mean I wouldn't be able to direct the flow as well.

There we go. Please advise with all your useful and helpful opinions  Smiley

I am no longer able to proceed with the 29 gallon build I've been planning, so I've been selling most of the items I've purchased.

The last item to go is a Seapora 29 gallon aquarium which was purchased earlier this year.

Retails for $59.99, selling for $40.00

Tank is new and unused.

Tank has been sold
