What a year!

Posted by

Can't believe 2015 has come and gone by so fast. The year has been a great one for our hobby, my favorite story of the year was the finding of a mate for the believed to be extinct Ptychochromis Insolitus. The international community banned together to find more of this species, in the hopes of being able to build the population back up.

As a company we have grown in leaps and bounds with the help of all our facebook followers and the forum communities. In just this past year we built this website, added 2 entire product lines, expanded the number of tanks we have for growing plants and have been able to participate in multiple aquatic community events.

As we start off 2016, we have other products on the horizon, we have begun to work with aquarium clubs around the country for group orders. If you have a product you would like us to carry on the website, feel free to contact me to discuss it.

Just wanted to share my favorite video that I found this year: 

I wish all of you a happy, healthy and fry filled 2016!

The Big Shrimp Question... Home Bred or Import?

Home bred vs. import? That is the question that has been on my mind the past few weeks. Last week I decided to post a topic about this on the Facebook group USA Freshwater Shrimp and Plants, asking what everyone thought the difference was and what home bred actually meant to them. The amount of responses shocked me, and [...]

Power outage... what should you do for your fish

With winter storm Stella currently battering the Northeast, I thought I’d take this opportunity to discuss how a fish keeper can prepare for a major storm and the possible loss of electricity. It is very common to see people in the hobby asking “What do I do if the power goes out?” Well, [...]

Out with the old, in with the new!

One thing I’ve witnessed in the hobby is getting “bored” with your current set up or on a larger scale, burned out on the hobby itself. Recently I started to develop this feeling myself, whether it was because I was busy with life outside of fish or having a bunch of fish that were acquired when I bought out [...]

Microworms by the tablespoon

A few months ago, after joining the American Killifish Association (AKA), I came across a Facebook group run by well-known killifish breeder Jeff Wasley, named “Killifish breeding, conservation, maintenance”. On this site was a video posted by Scott Kuhnel about how to harvest a larger number of microworms to feed your fish. This article is about putting that concept [...]

Leaf litter, its just natural

For as long as there have been trees, they have been dropping their leaves into the waters below. So it's no wonder why so many of us use leaves in our aquariums to replicate a natural environment. Many of today's aquarium fish come from natural habitats which consist of heavy leaf litter, bits of wood and [...]

Is it just a hobby?

To quote a meme I've seen... "One does not simply keep "a" fish tank"I have been keeping fish tanks for as long as I can remember. It all started with the fair goldfish in the small 1 gallon tank, which turned into a betta. It wasn't until the Christmas of '98 that I got anything [...]

I'm Building a Fish Room - "are you nuts?!"

When you tell your family and friends you want to build a fish room - "Are you nuts?!" is probably the most common response you will get. However, with the right motivation and reasoning you can typically get others (mainly your significant other) to go along with this crazy dream you have.My reasons for building [...]
