Sunday Fishroom Post 2.9.2020

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...

Seahorses Are Back!

Posted by Gary Hull on

We had success in the past with our Dwarf Seahorses and have recently purchased several pairs of a larger species (Hippocampus Erectus) to breed in our saltwater tanks. We purchased these breeders from a facility that specializes in captive bred seahorses.  With our Dwarf Seahorses, the daily feeding consists of live newly hatched brine shrimp which realistically is not that hard to hatch on a daily basis. The great thing about the larger species is that they can easily be trained to take frozen mysis shrimp which can be purchased at most aquarium stores or online. The feeding literally takes...

We are continuing to ship fish through Jan and Feb but have to raise the shipping cost slightly since all orders must be double boxed and include...

Good Evening Fellow Fishkeepers, Well, it's been several weeks since I last posted. I do have a good excuse though, I quit my job at the Postal Service and took a 8-4 Monday through Friday position with a Non-Profit Organization that is closer to home. This will allow me to work with my fish more in the evenings and provide a much needed 2 day weekend every week!  To bring everyone up to date on the fishroom, we have several pair of Classic Koi and High Coverage Koi laying eggs again. I have about 300 High Coverage Koi fry growing...

Sunday Fishroom Post 9.22.19

Good Morning Fellow Fishkeepers, It's been a while since I've posted an update. So lets get back on track with what is new. Over the past several weeks, I have been busy painting the tanks. Basically, the back, bottom, and sides of the aquariums are painted a nice blue color. This has several benefits for breeding certain types of aquarium fish such as Discus and Angelfish. First, the Discus and Angelfish get stressed when they lay eggs and can see other fish in tanks next to their own. They will swim around all day defending eggs against these fish and...
