Can triops be in the same tank as small 1-inch minnows? Will the minnows kill triop eggs or infants or attack?

Question by Kat: Can triops be in the same tank as small 1-inch minnows? Will the minnows kill triop eggs or infants or attack?
Also, do minnows eat fairy shrimp? I know triops do.

Best answer:

Answer by Dan M
I think you asked this same question twice. Triops and minnows cannot be kept together. It all depends on relative size and who attacks first that determines who survives this experiment. If there are any survivors, that is.

Minnows will find and eat the Triops and the Triops eggs of any size. The adult Triops may catch and eat one of the small minnows, but this will not stop the other minnows from trying to kill and eat the Triops.

Minnows eat fairy shrimp, daphnia, cyclops, Triops and anything else that could hatch out of a Triops kit. Cyclops can chew on your fish, so they are not a good choice as a live food.

Ok, so… do fairies HAVE to really puny and tiny?

Question by Sylus Alexander: Ok, so… do fairies HAVE to really puny and tiny?
I just really want to know, because in my story there’s this boy fairy and — I don’t want to tell anyone so they don’t steal my ideas. Ok, so I personally really don’t like fairies, but I’ll accept it for this story… lmeo.

Now, I know that fairies are really puny, and small, and tiny, and shrimps, and diminutive, and petite, and pocket – sized human beings…. but I just want to know if there are any human sized fairies!? Please answer my question peepoles! I really want to know! Because I just don’t like the puny shrimps… pardon my language. *^_^*

puny shrimps, oh heavens to betsy, the profanity!
Anyway, I think elves can be considered human height? They are fictional so make them what you want.

Stocking a 30 Gallon FOWLR tank?

Question by Diver1070: Stocking a 30 Gallon FOWLR tank?
Your Open QuestionShow me another »
Stocking a 30 gallon FOWLR tank?
I plan on starting up a 30 gallon FOWLR tank sometime this Fall. I was thinking about something along the lines of this:

A pair of Percula clowns
A Coral Beauty dwarf angelfish
A 3-4″ Fairy wrasse or Flasher wrasse
A goby or blenny of some kind (like a Canary Fang Blenny, Bicolor Blenny, or Shrimp Goby)
And either an Orchid or Sunrise Dottyback, or a Starcki Damsel

The clowns are non-negotiable, but the dottybacks aren’t. I know they can be real hellions, so a Starcki Damsel would easily replace them. For the others, any substitutes would be open to change.
I also know that the angel is pushing it in size, but all of what I have studied, including numerous reference books by authors I trust, tell me that a Coral Beauty will be fine for a 30 gallon.

The Starcki Damsel would replace the dottybacks easily and isn’t as aggressive as other damsels, so it would make a great substitute.

Also, would just a suitable power filter be enough with live rock, or would I need a protein skimmer as well?

Please, I am not an idiot and I am talking about setting up this tank, not that I have it going now. If you have a problem with the fish I have mentioned, any suggestions would be great.
I would like to know what others think of these stocking choices. I am only talking about six fish or less. I know that there are 15 gallon tanks with three fish with no problems. If this tank is overstocked, please suggest how to fix it.

Answer by Mike
How many times are you going to post this? It’s not even a question. It’s just a comment about you wanting a FOWLR tank. As your only question in the whole thing is about a filter being good enough or needing a Protein skimmer… That was well answered already the first time.

Best answer:

Answer by Mike
You really cant compare liver rock and filters to a skimmer. With a 30 gallon tank, the Skimmer is really not something worth having. Weekly water changes will keep organic waste down. 30 gallon tanks can normally only use mini skimmers and these are pieces of crap according to everyone that’s used them.

Personally, I’d never get a 30 gallon salt water tank unless I was getting a nano cube for a small reef tank which i do have a 12G. It would be so benificial to spend a little extra money and get a 55 gallon unless room is a unmanagable issue. This would give you the easy option to upgrade by adding a nice sump, good skimmer, then anything else you could want. With a good skimmer in a 55 gallon you could reduce your water changes. You can very easily find a 55 gallon tank on craigslist for less than it would cost to by a 30 gallon new. This would also make things easier later if you want to start letting your clowns breed. Most salt water tanks are advised to be atleast 45 gallons

Would you check my letter written in English?

Question by mango: Would you check my letter written in English?
I wrote two letters with the same contents to the kid I sponsor.

One is written in my mother tongue and the other in English.
There are volunteers who translate letters, but they are not also professionals, so I did it by myself.
Would you check it?

———————–
I was really happy to receive the letter from you.
I got it on August 6th.
It took a long journey, didn’t it?
My letters are also going to be in your hand after several months.

I wonder who wrote the letter in English. It doesn’t seem to be written by an adult. Did you write it or ask someone to do it instead?

I got the report about your health. According to it, you are 111cm tall and 18kg. Is it right? I am a little worried if you regularly have a meal. Studying is good, but health is essential for your dream come true. Don’t skip your meal.

What is your favorite food?
I like “Kimchi” which is the seasoning cabbage. It is the representative food of Korea. It might taste a little hot to you.
Do you like fish? I like seafood such as shrimp. I also love Indian food like curry, tanduri chicken and nan (thin bread). But Indian food is very expensive in my country, so I eat it only on a special day. I’ve heard that Nepal food is similar to Indian and Chinese food. I like Chinese food, too.

Your painting is really great. My husband was moved at your letter decorated with your painting. In fact, I was unhappy with some troubles, and then I got your letter, so I became happy. You gave me a big gift. Thank you.

Answering to your question in your letter, I used to write about the movies and entertainment industry because I worked for the movie magazine company. After quitting it, I usually write fairy tales for my niece who is at your age. I want to publish them in the future, but I am not sure if it is possible. Writing novels has been my hobby since I was 8 years old. My niece also likes writing, so she wrote the fairy tale about the friendship between a girl and a magical horse which can fly. She made it into a book. I don’t have the book, but I have the copy of it. If you can read English, I’ll send it to you.

By the way, there seems to be some misunderstanding. ^_^ (This is a smile mark.)
I didn’t do three jobs at the same time – a teacher, nurse and journalist.
After college graduation, I worked as a journalist for one year, and I went back to the school to major nursing to immigrate to the U.S. because nurses are easier to get a job and settle in the U.S. comparing to the other people.
However, the plan was changed with some reasons, so I am still in Korea. I don’t think that I’ll move to the U.S. in the near future.
I worked as a nurse for a while, and after quitting it, I taught students also for a while.

The summer of Korea is also hot. I guess it is hotter than in Nepal. The daytime high is about 32-35 degrees and the humidity is 75-85%. Yes, it is suffocating heat.

Oh, may I ask you something? How many students are there in your classroom? Who is your best friend? Friendship is one of the best things you can have in school.
Is your favorite subject math? I also liked math when I was a student. Math is beautiful even though some students hate it. ^_^

I read that your dream is to be a soldier. May I ask why you want it?
I’ve heard that a soldier is the most popular job in Nepal, but I think you have your own reason.

I asked you so many things. ^_^
Take care. If you have any wonders, ask me whatever it is.
I wish the best luck with you.
Say my regards to your family.

2 gallon fish bowl, 3 guppies?

Question by Noo: 2 gallon fish bowl, 3 guppies?
at least 2 gallons of water (its about 10 liters), 3 tiny guppies, plants, filtration gravel, clean water, not fed too much, 1 cup of water changed everyday, lots of love, thinking of adding some fairy shrimp.

am i cruel?
people tell me im cruel for keeping a fish bowl?!
i’m paranoid now :( lady in shop said it was fine!
i think i have my measurements on the tank wrong. its a huge bowl, probs about 30cm’s radius then it bulbs out at the bottom.

if i knew it was cruel i wouldnt have done it!
i love fish and thats why i wanted to keep them, i thought pet shop lady could be trusted!

Best answer:

Answer by Kim
Fish bowls are not for fish. Guppies need 10 gallons and 4-5 guppies would stock a 10 gallon fish tank.

It is rather cruel the water is not heated. And guppies need 78-80.

Edit: It’s not only the size but the shape of a bowl that is bad. It doesn’t have much surface area which limits the amount of oxygen in the water. You can’t put a proper filter in there Undergeravel filters are really glorified bubblers they only trap waste under the gravel where it’s hard to reach and clean out. They don’t cycle because of the size and shape.

Question by Mariane Palomo: I need to translate English story…Help me!?
Title:The legend of he sampaloc lake.
Author:(who knows?)
Story:Once upon a time,
there live a well-to-do but childless couple. They own a garden that is filled with sweet tamarinds (sampaloc) which became famous all over the island and beyond. In order to make sure that no one would enter their yard and steal their tamarind, the couple built a fence around the yard and placed a watchdog to guard it.

Testing the hospitality of the couple, a fairy disguised as a poor old woman, went to the couple and begged for some tamarind to relieve her hunger. The couple did not even looked at the old woman and instead of yielding to her appeal, they became very angry and drove her away by letting the ferocious dog loose. The old woman was badly hurt.

Before she turned away from the couple, she touched the tamarind tree and said, “You shall be punished for your selfishness.” Then she slowly went away.

The sky suddenly became overcast even before the old lady was out of sight. A terrible storm broke out and heavy rains fell through the night.

The next morning, the couple went through their usual routine. Instead of tall green tamarind trees, the couple was startled to see a vast expanse of water. Unconvinced of what happened, they went forward to the bank of the lake and saw through the transparent water the tamarind trees still rooted to the sunken ground.

From that day on, the place became known as “Sampaloc Lake,” (sampaloc being the Filipino term for tamarind). Nowadays, the shoreline of Sampaloc Lake is surrounded with floating restaurants that serves Filipino and Chinese cuisines with cottages built on bamboo stilts. The lake is abundant with different species like tilapia, bangus (milk fish), carp and shrimps.

Translation of this story from English >> Spanish–

Érase una vez,
vive bien, pero al hacer pareja sin hijos. Son dueños de un jardín que está lleno de dulces tamarindos (sampaloc), que se hizo famoso en toda la isla y fuera de ella. Con el fin de asegurarse de que nadie entrar en su jardín y robar su tamarindo, la pareja construyó una valla alrededor del patio y un puesto de vigilancia para proteger la misma.

Prueba de la hospitalidad de la pareja, un hada disfrazada de una pobre anciana, fue a la pareja y suplicó para algunos tamarindo para aliviar su hambre. La pareja ni siquiera miró a la anciana y en lugar de ceder a su recurso de casación, se hicieron muy enojado y llevó lejos por dejar que el feroz perro suelto. La vieja estaba mal herido.

Antes de que ella se apartó de la pareja, ella tocó el tamarindo árbol y dijo: “Usted debe ser castigado por su egoísmo.” Luego, lentamente se fue.

De repente se convirtió en el cielo nublado, incluso antes de que la anciana estaba fuera de la vista. Una terrible tormenta estalló y las fuertes lluvias cayeron durante la noche.

A la mañana siguiente, la pareja fue a través de su rutina habitual. Verde en lugar de altos árboles de tamarindo, el joven comenzó a ver una gran extensión de agua. Convencido de lo que ocurrió, que se adelantó a la orilla del lago y vio a través del agua transparente, el tamarindo árboles todavía hundido sus raíces en la tierra.

Desde ese día, el lugar fue conocido como “Lago Sampaloc”, (siendo el filipino sampaloc plazo de tamarindo). Hoy en día, la costa del lago está rodeado Sampaloc flotante con restaurantes que sirven cocina china y filipino con cabañas construidas sobre pilotes de bambú. El lago es abundante, con diferentes especies como la tilapia, Bangus (pez de leche), la carpa y el camarón.

Question by Catherine T: I hope you like my story.?
Saving School and the World

My SECRETFormula!!!
If someone knows about it, I’m toast!! I’d let someone take it
but if I did, it wouldn’t be safe with me right now.I will tell you some stories. Of course I don’t want to give away the SECRETFormula! ( This is a ” imagined” picture of her)
These stories are about the wicked fashion diva !!! Mua ha ha ha ha ha!!! Her dreaded name is LAVERNA! Milk curdles and spoils at the sound of her name and flowers wilt in her prescense. She’s a cheerleader, a bully, a fashion diva, and a powerful witch in disguise. She ruled the school with her evil minions or henchgirls whatever your perfer. School is filled with many wizards, warlocks, trolls, , fairies, nymphs, and WITCHES. Not all of them are bad, it depends on how they use their powers. She had many followers. These followers are more of fearers of her that don’t want to be stuffed into her locker or eat at the table near the trash can in the cafeteria. More importantly, they didnt want to get on her bad side so they forced against their will to be as evil and mean as her just not to be looked down upon. Good thing she doesn’t know about this. If she did I’m toast and you are too!!! ( Tell me, is this so hard to believe?? )

You are only supposed to pour one drop of worm potion into the shrimp potion or else it’ll explode. ( Now let’s call the potions P for short so it will be easier. ) Then the chemicals will start to bubble. Pour it in to the fish egg potion. Then after that step it will be edible. ( Only for fish though ) It’ll turn into fish bait but you have to let it dry for 24 hours. Then it’ll be ready before you know it and if you have a pet fish, feed it to the fish. You don’t have to buy fish food anymore! ( Everyone is probably wondering why I put this huh? It’s Laverna’s secret formula for her evil!!! Just kidding, this is her now-not-so-secret formula for her fish food for her pet SHARKS AND PIRHANNA!!! Okay I’m just joking, like her parents would let her have one of those two. She actually has 2 pet goldfish. )
Now let’s talk about the evil diva. ( This should be on her bedroom door, not to mention a toxic sign and a ” Beware, super-natural fashion-diva in here with evil powers!!! Enter at own Risk ” ) Me, I’m only a meek little girl with little or no powers. I know someone has to save the world but I never expected it would be me……
Now that’s scary……….she’s so evil and mean! She always says she’s rich and pretty and she actually happens to be. I don’t care want she or what anyone says. It is fate for me, Stacy to one day defeat the evil Laverna!!!

LEVERNA !!!Some people say I don’t stand a chance ( well her evil minions and followers )but I believe I can!!
If you can believe you can achieve and if you can ahcieve you can succeed. LEVERNA said she hated that expression but it’s genius to me. She’s as stubborn as a mule in the summer.
If she wants something and no one gives it to her, she doesn’t talk to them for days until they give it to her. She gets to boss me around and I don’t even get to rule my own life anymore. Lifes not fair you know? Doesn’t sound good huh? I’m toast when I don’t listen to her. She’s so rich!!! I can’t express this enough. She even made the money tree possible. I’ll show you a picture.

Some of her friends got so sick of her, they quit being her followers and joined the stamp club! Some remained faithful and stayed by her side still in fear. Laverna was enraged that her minions left her for a stamp club and one for the glee club. ( That’s another story )

After that she seemed to fall in her EVIL powers. I, Stacy, would have to finish Laverna off. Of course, I barely knew if or how to use my powers. I had to face this like an adult and so I decided would. One day, Laverna was clearing her table. I found it a perfect time to face her. She was currently laughing at someone who had spilled their lunch. Unfortuantely, I chickened out and ran away. Later on, I saw her yellling at people who blocked her locker. I came up and said, ” Powerful or not, you don’t have the power to boss everyone around the way you do.” I suddenly felt a surge like an electric shock go through me and a tingling thorugh my finger tips. I felt a blot of lightining zap from my fingers. It hit Laverna directly and her minion clone divas. Laverna was enraged! Her eyes fired and so did her hands with power and dark zaps flew everywhere. She rose her arms ready to zap me to a parallel dimension of darkness and despair. Sparks flew everywhere and people shrunk in fear and others watched in amazement. Her former followers ran to get help but it was too late. People that still were her followers had sealed each door with an enchanment freezing all staff and teachers in sight. As I shrunk in fear speechless, she zapped me, but nothing happened. I suddenly realized that when I must’ve zapped her, I had drained her powers! She too realized soon enough and fled. I quickly opened a portal in front of her and as expected, she was too busy running away to notice so she and her followers fell in disappearing forever in the parallel universe. I was the school hero! Everyone cheered and I was happy too. Mostly because I had found use to my powers and I had destroyed Laverna forever. Life returned to school and everything was once again peaceful. I, Stacy, had saved the world. If you look into life you might find it’s purpose. I’m not sure about Laverna’s purpose but I can’t ponder into such wonders. No one knows where she exactly went. But hey, that’s life for you and also our little secret.
THE END

Will any of these fishes try eat a blood red fire shrimp, hermit crabs, star fish, or clams?

Magnificent Foxface
Copperband Butterflyfish
Raccoon Butterflyfish
Teardrop Butterflyfish
Falcula Butterflyfish
Golden Semilarvatus Butterflyfish
Blue/Green Reef Chromis
Ocellaris Clownfish
Green Mandarin Goby
Spotted Mandarin Goby
Yellow Tang
Blue Hippo Tang
Six Line Wrasse
Longfin Fairy Wrasse

I know the butterflys will try to eat the corals so doing a reef tank will be out of the question. Really want to do a reef tank but can’t have the butterfly eating at my money through corals. Also are all these fishes compatible with each other…I’m planning on having at least a 200 gallon setup.
Are there any corals that I may be able to have in the tank despite the butterflys?
