The puff puffs seem to be doing well! They’re just like bumblebees—buzzing around everywhere!
I also think I got lucky with 2 F to 1 M! Time will tell if I’m right or not, but either way I’m excited!!!
Eddie is the biggest and a female. She is also darker than the rest.
Edd is my second female. She is brighter than Eddie but does have a round belly.
Ed is my supposed male. He is much more slender, and his spots seem to be more collected into stripes.
Trio, welcome to fishblr!
Another update on my 50l Scaper’s Tank after some trimming jobs and repositioning of the Bucephalandra Kedagang. I also abandoned the flame moss (needed it for another project which will be following soon) and added an Anubias barteria nana bonsai and some Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.
Most people who are new or not into fish keeping say,” I don’t want big fish tanks, because they require more work!”
More water makes it look that way, but the truth is that larger tanks are easier to take care of.
What, but how?Imagine that the red dots are how much waste Mr. Fishy creates in one week- that’s 9 dots. On the left is the waste in a small tank and on the right is the waste in a big tank. The water in the small tank is more toxic because there’s more waste per part of water, but the big tank has less toxic water because there’s less waste per part of water.
What does this mean?
For the small tank, more water changes have to be done weekly to keep water safe for Mr. Fishy.
For the big tank, a smaller weekly water change is only needed to keep water safe for Mr. Fishy.
Here’s a weekly water test from a divided 15 gallon tank for two Siamese fighting fish (betta splendens):
Aside from pH (which should always stay constant), all of the toxins are at zero in my filtered tank. That’s always to be expected from any mature tank. But look at the nitrate! By the end of the week there is nearly zero nitrate, plants help but the size of the tank helps even more. If I didn’t change my water for 3 weeks, the nitrates would still be below 20 ppm- but I still do 10% water changes every week. I don’t have to worry about any catastrophes rapidly occurring.
But my fish doesn’t like big spaces!
If you get a bigger tank, fill it up with plants and ornaments to make your fish more comfortable. If your fish is not doing well in a big tank, it’s not because of water volume. A big empty tank is going to be scary for some fish, a small empty tank can be the same.
Tl;dr: Bigger volumes of water dilutes the daily/weekly amount of waste your fish creates, meaning less frequent/smaller water changes and more stability.
This just in; snail inside tiny aquascape
I love this snail
Here is the 4ft tank after i re-scaped it! the fish seem to be far more active and i think its far easier on the eye too :)
Angel Babies.Tinfoil male and Platnium female.

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s water changing day!!! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
Please make sure you guys are keeping up with your water changes and your fishes needs. Whether they live in a plastic tub from walmart or a 50 gallon planted paradise, please ensure you are keeping tabs on their water parameters and that their tanks are filtered and heated properly.
Have a fantastic day fishblr~
Awful blurry bottom photo but I can’t believe how big Antoine has gotten?! I haven’t been paying much attention to the goldies lately because I’m not home during the week, so I just remind my mom to feed them, feed them a little extra on the weekends because she probably forgets sometimes and change the water/clean the filter.
Antoine didn’t look any fatter from the top but when I lifted him out of the water I was amazed!
Edit: my hand looks super creepy in the bottom photo, oops
Shameless self reblogging ‘cause I’m proud
