Un-Hungry Common Pleco

Aloha All,Been a bit of a spectator of late...Sorry, and I hope all had a great summer!To the point, our daughters 6" long common "pleco," "Plekster," doesnt seem to be eating. We introduced "him" to her 29 gal hardscape tank early August. The tank has a large piece of driftwood as a centerpiece and "bolt hole," several small river stones, and fine, light colored gravel. Plekster had been nibbling blanched zucchini, but seems to have lost interest. ...


Hello from Indianapolis.

I have kept fish in the past but after going through some tough times after a divorce am finally settled down enough to start back up.

Reef Tank Plan

Much of my knowledge comes from a combo of TFH magazines I read when I was younger and the book "The Marine Reef Aquarium," by Phillip Hunt. So having never previously attempted a reef tank, my thoughts are that I want to have a larger tank so the parameters are easier to manage and I can keep a fair few colorful species without too much trouble shooting. So I...


Returning to the hobby!

Hello all! It has been quite a while since I last visited these parts. I started my real fascination with fish back when I was 13 or 14. Im 21 now and it has been a very long time since Ive kept fish. When I was younger I had a tendency not to do things correctly when it came to fish keeping. My parents didnt really understand the process and Id end up overstocking freshwater tanks and tanks werent usually properly cycled before fish came into the picture. As I got older and read about the proce...
