I have a 55 gallon fresh water tank and I have these bubbles floating in the tank that seem to cover food. They get caught in the filter system. When I placed in a vacation fish food, these bubbles seem to start to cover up the wafer food. Anyone know what this is or who to get rid of it. It has not bothered the fish in the tank yet, but I know it is probably just time.

    Those vacation fish foods are nasty. Do a water change and make sure your air stone isn't turned up too high.

I have had my Tex for about 2 years he is about 7 inches now. He has killed all other tank mates up to this point but recently I put a divider in the tank. I have placed a baby Jaguar Cichlid in the other side and a large Pleco in his side. The Pleco has taken a beating but is fine now. The baby Jaguar has gotten through the divider and is still alive! The Tex even protects him, they swim together, eat side by side, and if the Pleco comes close to the baby Jag he gets a stern warning by the Tex. I have never seen this sort of behavior before, I am truly shocked (and happy). As a side note try feeding your Tex right out of your hand, just watch out for them teeth!

    Thats why I'm putting a pair of [SMALLMOUTH BASS]. to breed in a long long long long 40 gallon tank and move the female to another big tank after they spawn the male will care for the babies. I will add 4 male pumpkinseed sunfish, 2 clown loach catfishand 1 single male Rio grande texas cichlid that will live in a cave in a dark area with red coral trees.πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Raccoons are illegal as pets in Cook County (I live there too) and any vet that is found treating an illegal pet can have their license taken away. You probably can have one if you live outside of Cook County, but please double check the laws. If animal control finds out about an illegal pet, it will probably be euthanized and biopsied for rabies testing.

    I live in Canada & it is illegal to own a wild animal. ANY wild animal. However, a couple of stupid people saw 2 tiny baby raccoons in the back seat of an old car at an auction & thought the mother wasn't coming back and stole the babies. 100% sure she was hiding until everyone left. They should have at least waited 24 hours & checked from a distance if she returned. However, there are idiots born every second.

    Anyway, one of the kits came to me after the one person.could no longer have her because they lived in a municipality & I was on a farm. I loved this little raccoon to destruction. She was never in the house but locked in the barn unless I was there until ?5-6 months old. Then she had free rein. She lived on top of the hay bales & even though the house was not that far away, she never came there. I had her over the her 1st winter & would try & play with her everyday. We were very close. But late that next spring she disappeared. I was sick. I was hoping to start working on releasing her in a huge provincial park in the fall. She was beautiful whe she left, probably 40 pounds. She came back a month later, looked TERRIBLE & had probably lost half her weight. I think she had found a mate because she then made a "nest" so to speak in our Quonset & really didn't want much to do with anyone. I had 2 young Grandaughters & we were constantly at the barn as we had horses etc. I had to release her to a zoo. It broke my heart.

    PLEASE for the animals sake DO NOT GET a pet raccoon . They are adorable for about 8 months but then they become what nature intended them to be. Mine was not mean and nasty but might have become so if she had young.

    I have a pair of black belts, one is 5 inches one is 8 inches and they had babies about one week ago. Second batch. These ones I think will survive.
  • Wolfman🐺 - 2020-02-19
    I meant what i said about me putting a single male blackbelt cichlid with a male (largemouth bass) that I've already spawned to keep the male blackbelt cichlid in check. Y'all black my comments on this cause you know its the truth the blackbelt cichlid is a bully and y'all can't except the facked that a male largemouth bass wont tolerate being bullied.
  • Wolfman🐺 - 2020-04-02
