I’m sorry if you get asked this a lot (I’m sure you do) in your personal opinion what is the best salt water starting out tank?
Personally I think an all-in-one, thirty-ish gallon tank is good to start! I know biocube has some good ones. You’re going to want live rock, and if you want sand depends on personal preference and what you want to keep.
As for livestock, clownfish and small damsels can be good for beginners. Those fish are aggressive so you’ll have to check compatibility! If you look through my ‘tank suggestions’ tag you’ll see other tank recommendations I’ve made. Hope that helps!
did you ever catch mario? 😮
Unfortunately not! He’s a clever fellow, and Yoshi kept warning him when I put the net close. I think it’ll be ok though – they have a tunnel that goes into the rock, so they can stay in the rock while we move them
Oh jeez, she put the gecko & skink together…???
I’ve been M.I.A. but I’m slowly catching up on Taylor stuff and yikes, I’m not a reptile person but don’t skinks eat gecko’s? Yikes, Taylor, Yikes. I wouldn’t say that was worth the risk for a twitter photo.
I do get heated sometimes, especially on that one turtle post I made but I do try my best to remain civil and let the facts do what they will. It’s just unfortunate that these facts are relatively negative and I really hate that, it’s really just such a waste, I think. For her to do the things she does and how she does them.
I can sit here and hope she’ll step up her game but I’ve been following along with her for so long that I really don’t believe she will be changing anytime soon.
Oh nooooo D’’: I’ll have to catch up when I can ;w; At least he still has the other one right? And the gallery oh man, I’m so excited to see how that is coming along I like drool whenever I see fish rooms / garages / sheds I die.
Oh wow, yeah I’ve been un-able to watch any youtube videos lately
(cries about missing goldfish moms videos & I heard that Joey’s Arrowana died? D’:)
But at least she’s admitted to being at fault, if i’m reading your message correctly? Then again saying she has the worst luck with sick animals is another excuse like…. If you know you’re the reason an animal gets sick… Maybe you should change your care up to be more up to standards or I don’t know…… Have less of a load of animals in general.
I don’t know I’m just really iffy about the trend that’s become popular of having sooo many animals. Like I feel for fishkeepers it’s moderately justified because fish don’t need the sort of care other animals do. Like, you don’t need to socialize or coddle fish ya know? (Even though there are many who would love to cuddle their fishies. I know I would if I knew it wouldn’t be detrimental to their health lmao)
But hmm… I’ve been done with her a while myself, her excuses and lack of change has unsettled me, not to mention dangerous and lazy practices that she’s sharing with a progressively vicious fanbase. I’ll say it again, because there’s always that one person, but I have nothing against Taylor herself — In fact I’m sure she’s lovely in conversation and person, I’d even be happy to speak to her dare I ever somehow have the chance — But my opinions are my own and I’m glad I have others I can discuss such ‘controversial’ subjects with. Because people shouldn’t be afraid to speak their thoughts and views because someone has a larger outreach than they do personally.
11. What foreign country would you most like to visit and why?
I’d would adore Egypt! I’ve always loved the place, when I was a little girl I wanted to move there and I’m still fascinated with the culture and art. A close second would be Japan or China for the koi and goldfish (among other things). ^-^
46. From 1-10, rate your dancing ability.
-100. I have… Very little grace in my bones. I can jump around but that’s about it.
158. Favorite Beatles song?
I admittedly haven’t listened to many Beatles songs…? Yellow Submarine is the only one I ever remember hearing and I didn’t care for it that much. 😡
Oh jesus christ what has she done now.
I myself am currently in California. We’re slowly but surely working on a move here from Iowa. So I’ve been mia & haven’t even looked at youtube in over a month. But damn. Looks like I have something to look into.
Poor babies. But it’s not really typical for someone to take an aquatic pet to a vet? (I haven’t heard of any exotic vets seeing axolotls??) Unless it’s a turtle of sorts. So we can’t give her too much grief for that– What we can give her grief for is not putting effort into caring for this axolotl herself. I’m not sure what can be done to help an eggbound ‘lotl, but fungus should be decently treatable as long as she’s able to keep up with it and monitor.
But again- I have been completely off the grid for upwards of a month & this is the first I’ve heard of anything. I might go check in on her later I don’t know but I’m not in a position to offer an opinion on the matter at this point in time.
Ok I’m not too good with all the terms, but the gravity is just the salinity, yes? My salinity fluctuates a lot, between 1.025, and around 1.030. As far as I know, my tank is about as salty as anyone would keep a salt tank, so I don’t think you have to worry about it being too much for the mollies.
As for converting them:
The first ones I got I just did a regular 30 minute drip acclimation, and got the salinity up to 1.010 within that time. I put them in after that 30 minutes and they did fine.
The second time I got them I just drip acclimated them for 10 minutes – getting the salinity up to 1.010 in that time – and, again, they were fine.
You can ask/message with any other questions and I’ll be happy to help, and you can also check out my ‘Operation Molly Conversion’ tag!
Thanks, and I hope that answered your questions!
@the anon who asked if Mario and Yoshi share a hole:
1. I’m am so so so sorry but I accidentally deleted your ask. I just got back from camp like two hours ago and am in a Haze.
2. Yes!!!! Mario digs it and lets Yoshi come in, and in return Yoshi lets him know if there’s danger and gives him food!!! They’re so cool and cute, and like to push each other around when there’s not enough room for them to stick their heads out at the same time.
