surprise, petsmart had female dwarf gouramis! I picked up a pearl gourami, and was excited to get a female, but turns out they are different types XD She’s must be a Easter egg because suppliers rarely ever send females.

about a month of growth in my small fluval spec.

I use API root tabs, liquid fertilizer, and liquid CO2 as directed.

Peters’ Elephantnose Fish (Gnathonemus petersii)

Elephantnose fish originate from the rivers of West and Central Africa, where they live in muddy, slow moving waters. They have a trunk-like protrusion from the head, which gives them their name.

The ‘trunk’ is actually an extension of the mouth, and is covered in electroreceptors that the fish uses in finding prey, communication and navigation. Specially adapted muscle tissue near its tail produces a weak electric field.

The electroreceptors, which are also distributed along its body can detect small disturbances in the electric field, such as those caused by moving prey in the substrate. It also allows the fish to navigate in complete darkness.

Nautilus | Nautilidae

"At night, nautiluses ascend to shallower waters to scavenge for hermit crabs, fish, and the exoskeletons of molting crustaceans. They locate food by smelling the ocean currents for traces of dead or dying prey."   -

Thranduil jumped out of his little tank the the other night and died. Poor guy was so beautiful and I’m stunned he managed to get out of the tiny opening available. Goes to show that bettas are masterful at escaping.

While at the pet-store buying my dogs food I saw a beautiful blue plakat, and decided to bring him home. I’m going to stick with the elvish names and call him Elrohir. I’ve blocked the small opening so this guy will have the same fate as Thranduil :(

After much debate I am getting a betta for my 10 gallon. These are my favorites, I’d really like to hear what you guys think, which one is your favorite?
