Fishroom Post 9.20.2020

Posted by Gary Hull on

I have had a lot of questions recently on what I feed my fish and how often, so I will cover that today for this weeks blog post. First off, the type of fish dictates what type of food they receive. The age of the fish dictates how many times per day I feed them. The younger the fish, the more times per day they will get fed. Let me start by giving you the basics based on the 3 main types of fish that I raise and sell - Angelfish, Guppies, and Pleco's. Angelfish:My adult and juvenile angelfish receive...

Seahorse Fry Day 6

Posted by Gary Hull on

The Seahorse (Hippocampus Erectus) fry have reached day 6. Out of the original 10 fry, 7 are still alive and doing well. I have posted a pic of a couple swimming around the tank together. These guys need daily water changes and newly hatched brine shrimp several times a day. They are usually a darker color until they get older.

Seahorse Babies!

Posted by Gary Hull on

Just wanted to post a quick comment regarding our large Seahorse. After several failed attempts at mating, we finally have some Seahorse fry swimming around the tank. The picture I have posted for this blog post shows the first attempt at mating and the spilled eggs on the bottom of the tank.The eggs look orange due to the oil that they contain. At this point, there are only 7 or 8 fry but at least they managed to have some this time. I will update the blog post with some pictures in the next day or so. Happy Fishkeeping!

Posted by Gary Hull on

Happy Sunday, First off, if you ordered Live Fish at the end of last week, they did not ship on Saturday due to the 21 degree temperature. Monday is supposed to be in the 40s so it will work for shipping. I also always list the updated ship dates for fish at the top of our website home page. Even though we include 2 heat packs during winter shipments, the temp has to be over the freezing point for the heat packs to actually function correctly.  Another topic that has come up this week is feeding baby angelfish newly hatched...
