Re: HELP PLECOS HAVE RED EYE AND SPOTS!!!

Pure RO water? This sounds more like a cycling issue, if I had to guess. I hope he figured that out...

Congrats Fern!

Are you really working with Syno. petricola? Or Syno. lucipinnis?

Re: It's freezing up here!

Welcome to the board! Spokane just got done setting record snowfall numbers for November. I am pretty sure the weather followed me down when I moved from Anchorage a few years ago ;). I hear all the fish stores I shopped at are gone now though. Good luck with your new fish project!

Hell might have just frozen over....

Or my male zebra might have just relented anyway ;). I noticed 3 little zebra fry last night in the tank that has not had any spawns but one lone fry appear in it for more than 3 years. Hoping there's more ;). Maybe one of the two young females he didn't kill in his drunken murder spree a few years...

Re: Two zebra to sex

From the last photo I also would say young female on the left, male on the right.

Re: I must have infinite patience or fish who understand Eng

TTA I'd bet that a competing female kicked those eggs out. I have had dozens of spawns back to back like that when an egg ball gets kicked out. Congrats on your "lucky" and hopefully you've got another big batch in there in the works. You're going to be happily impressed when you see how fast those...

I would do the water changes every day before you add more medication. The effective dosage is exhausted pretty quickly when dosed as a bath. Bad water parameters will kill him much faster than a build up of medication will help him, IME. He's actually not in bad shape at all, compared to a couple ...

Hi Howie,

Welcome to the site! Do you know if your zebras are wild or tank raised? I only ask because I sold a group of F1s to a gentleman in Vancouver that should be about that size ;).

I didn't actually look to see which fish they said was which number. I agree that 3 is male, but 4 is female. Definitely give them some caves and rains ;).

I keep the heater plugged in, just turn it down a few degrees. Yes, they do end up in mostly RO water, and yes, that's the idea ;). I go right back to tap water changes after a week or two with no problem. Just don't over feed during that time. If you're really worried you can put a couple shells i...

Size wise, yes, but temp wise? No way. Temperatures that make cories happy are going to freeze zebras.
