All aquarists have likely dealt with it at some point: the dreaded green hair algae. It takes over your tank, suffocates your plants and turns everything into a green hairy mess. Annoying! Scrubbing is just a temporary solution and algaecides do more harm than good, so how do you get rid of this stuff?!

I used to keep the tiny Cambarellus shufeldtii a few years ago and finally got another dwarf crayfish a recently. This time it’s a Cambarellus patzcuarensis ‘orange’, better known as the CPO crayfish or dwarf orange crayfish. What a fun addition 😍

This called for a full caresheet.

You can now find everything you need to know about the dwarf orange crayfish on Aquariadise here!

I’m officially over 2,000 followers now!
I don’t know what to say other than “thank you” for following and I am truly honored. I never thought this little blog would become what it is…
I hope you all are still enjoying my pics, I haven’t been posting as much lately (lots of stuff going on in my life right now) but I’m gonna try and do better in 2018!

My two newest additions, one is a replacement and the other is a totally new coral for the reef…
On the left is a Montipora Stellata (replacement for lost colony) and the one on the right is a Pink Nepthea. This beauty is fairly rare in the North American hobby but is very popular in Japan.
I’m looking forward to growing this frag out and possibly selling a few pieces to my LFS someday!

Hey Fishblr! I could REALLY use your help. And…

I’m doing
an online survey for my bachelor thesis and I need as many (qualifying) respondents as
possible to fill it out.
The aim of the survey is to find out in which ways
celebrities can use their fame for the public good – not related to fishkeeping but definitely an important subject. 

The survey consists of a few general demographic
questions, a short video and a bunch of additional questions.
Should only take you about 10 minutes and it’s completely anonymous! I’m
looking for respondents between 18-25 years of age who are located in the
United States.

So what’s
in it for you? I’m giving away a set of SIX Marimo balls to one lucky
These decorative aquatic moss balls look great in an aquarium or just a cute vase. Just leave your e-mail
address at the end of the survey to enter. 

Thanks in
advance and good luck to all participants.

➡➡➡ Please click here to start the survey and participate in the giveaway. ⬅⬅⬅

Note: it is possible to enter more than once! You can only fill out the questionnaire one time but you can send it to a friend or family member so they can fill it out and enter your e-mail address to increase your chances.

You can send the survey to friends/family using this link:

Reblogging is nice and makes you awesome.

I recently returned to Something Fishy, a great fish store in Cleveland, Ohio with a huge african cichlid breeding operation in the basement. The owner, Dave Hale, walked me around and talked about all of his fish and what has changed since last year. If you like frontosa you don’t want to miss it!
