Re: Syno Multis??

The larger fishes pictured above look like captive-bred Synodontis grandiops.

Re: RO water

pH 6.8 is a little high for the species but it seems a fine margin to have that big an effect. Anyway, Lars has bred more plecos than me, so I can't say it's a bad idea - just not heard that before (in plecos) hence my curiosity. So, you can't go much better than Darrel's advice, I know it's summer ...

Re: RO water

Going back to the first post, can you tell us more about the eggs that hatch prematurely. This is kind of new to me?

Re: Browser does not support WebGL, the OES_texture_float extension

That's helpful, thanks Chris. The issue is it's in code I don't control - from memory, it's used by the reCapatcha code.

To re-iterate - if anyone has the error, put " chrome://gpu/ " in your browser and post the outcome here?

Cheers!

Re: Browser does not support WebGL, the OES_texture_float extension

Just noting that while this still occurs, using a different browser stack appears to work around the issue.

Re: Congratulations Planet Catfish on reaching a milestone!

As 2019 draws to a close, I'd like to say a special thank you to all who supported us financially this year. Long time supporters @swisstropicals and @twotankamin continue to dig deep but also this year @Kostas, @TomSerious, Spencer Holst, @Aqua_Bankie, @Reindas and @pointpleco too have all provided...

Here is a pic of the one I know was labelled synodontis hybrid at the LFS..had so much personality and I know I can stick it into a tank without any other synos after quarantine. Lots of character in this one
This looks like Synodontis lucipinnis.

These look quite close to farmed Synodontis grandiops?

Wow, that's like ESP (P=Pleco)! I think something and it happens.

Thanks Eric, interesting to see this one too.

And we don't even have a picture of H. hemiurus in the catelog! This looks like a great initial step, will read it at the weekend.

Re: New Paralithoxus

Thanks for adding this to the site Eric, this fish is familiar and I can't put my finger on it! Hopefully it will come to me soon.

Re: Electric eel powers Tennessee Aquarium's Christmas lights, in shocking use of science

I've been to this aquarium several times including just a few months after it opened in the 90s. While it's not as amazing as it used to be (it has gradually gone more and more marine) much of the freshwater stuff is still brilliant. This is a great example of highlighting (pun not intended!) the re...

Re: Error message when adding fish to aquaria

I think I've fixed this. 100% sure about the stop date issue, and I've moved a fish from one tank to the other and it looked clean too.

Re: L134 and Helena snails?

I lean towards the better safe than sorry school of thought here. I have been told by invert folks assassins will eat eggs. I used to keep them in pleco tanks. In tanks with fry I seemed to have losses when there were assassins in the tank. So I have since removed these snails from pleco breeder ta...
