Fish Tails

NOTE: Unless specified otherwise, NO WORK is my own. Occasionally I post photos of my own fish and tanks, but mostly it's work I find interesting.
This blog is dedicated all to our aquatic friends.
I have a certain love for bettas, so expect to see them make quite a few appearances.

Helix is the busiest betta I have ever had! Someday he will be upgraded to a 20 gallon long because he would use all the space!

You’ll also notice the algae started coming back. The cause is no nitrates present…. All my other nutrients are well balanced, except for that. It shows because a couple of my stem plants shot up an inch already! Time to start dosing nitrates for his little kingdom so that the plants can continue to outcompete the algae. :)

I may also add in some additional bio load like an apple snail and two amano shrimp. Plus, I need to get four more pygmy cories…. I will just leave a shopping list with my boyfriend for when I’m away.

I love this photo set!!

Can you tell when he notices me? Maybe the part where he bee-lines over and gets so close the camera can’t focus? Silly Dante

Royal Pleco (Panaque nigrolineatus)

…Also known as the Royal Panque, the royal pleco is a species of armored catfish (Loricariidae) that occurs in Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela where it occurs in the Orinoco and Amazon river basins. Like other “plecos” Panaque nigrolineatus is a benthic feeder and feeds mainly on algae and detritus. P. nigrolineatus is widely known as one of the few fish that is capable of digesting wood, as (like termites) it has symbiotic bacteria in its gut, which are capable of breaking down the wood.

Classification

Animalia-Chordata-Actinopterygii-Siluriformes-Loricariidae-Panaque-P. nigrolineatus
