Need to stay away from Petsmart
« on: May 21, 2012, 09:37:22 PM »

Hi all,
It's been awhile since I've posted but after an extended length of unemployment, have found work and been very busy. One day I'm going to learn to stay away from Petsmart, but yesterday was not that day!
I cleaned my bigger aquarium really good, bought some new plants and did a little re-arranging. The two bigger fish are very happy and some may remember I had to move my new smaller crowned pearl (dreamsicle) back out of the bigger tank because it was picking on my orange goldfish. Anyway, to keep this short, found a very small baby gold and black oranda who is getting along really well with my other little one. The platyies have been moved, so it's just the two of them and they are happy to dart around and chase one another. My two bigger ones are much happier now that they are not being pestered by the little one. I think he was just way to exhuberant for both of them. Anyway, here is the bigger tank with the new plants, and a picture of my newest baby "Pandora"
I have to stop this and am trying to put some money back for a bigger aquarium. I know I'm going to need one soon and have to write notes all over the house "NO MORE FISH"
OH, and I bought a timer for the light. I am leaving it on way to long and cannot seem to get rid of the diatons, so hopefully this will help by not leaving the light on for so long. We shall see  Smiley
Have a great week.

So pretty! Both the fish and the tanks Smiley
Are the plants in the oranda tank fake or real plants? If real, what kinds?

Thanks all for the nice compliments. So far the two babies are getting along fine and not picking on one another. Nossie, the plants are real. The ones in front of the big decoration is Anubias, the pretty green (new plants next to the big rock/decoration) are El Nino Ferns and the varigated plants are called White Ribbon. I think the are really pretty, although the fish do have a tendency to nibble on them, I continue to just by new ones every now and then, as they aren't real expensive. We'll see how long these will last  Grin

 Smiley I had to dig the package out from the trash for the name. I've always seen them in Petsmart and thought to myself those are the neatest plants (white ribbons) and they seem to do pretty good as long as there are some really good roots on them. And when those darn diatons start showing up, the clean up rather well, so I really like them. I hope you have luck finding them  Smiley

Nossie, I found this on another forum I belong to:

I have several of those plants and they really havn't grown or rooted at all in severl months of being in my planted tank. I found out they aren't aquatic and they are going to be in there till my other plants fill in properly. While not growing, they do see hearty enough, they aren't rotting or anything. I don;t have loaches so can;t comment on that part.

Re: White Ribbon

No they will not survive. Eventually they will die, rot and pollute your tank.

I hadn't really researched them when I bought them the first time, but I have had to replace mine twice, and will probably continue to do so as I like them. This is the second time since February I've bought them and I do cut back/take off any leaves if they are dying, but their fairly inexpensive at our store. I bought two packs and all of those in the aquarium now, were what came out of the paks, so I'll probably continue to replace them.  Hope this helps.
