Ross Jebbersoon, Atlantic IA, May 11, 2009
Hi there, I've emailed you before about fish that you have, or can get, but this time around, I have a question to ask you about my fish tank. The other night, I noticed some foam in the corner of my fish tank, my fish tank is well established, and I was puzzled as to why it was happening now, and what was causing it. The only thing that I could think of was the food that was in there the day before. I swapped fish with a friend, but the fish were relatively the same size, if not smaller, decided to feed them a cube of frozen bloodworms. Well, these fish weren't as crazy about eating as the previous ones, so the bloodworms got scattered around and sat for a little while. But, within the hour were eaten. Later in the night, I fed the fish some trout worms, I usually cut them up into smaller pieces, but this time, I halved them. Same deal kind of as the bloodworms, at least as far as them sitting in the tank for a little while before they were all eaten. I only threw in 3 worms, I have 2 power filters for a 55 gallon tank on my 55 gallon tank, did a water change, majorly eased up on the feeding, and it still came back. Rinsed out the sponges and the foam was still there. It's not covering the whole surface, but I know that something isn't right in there.  If you could shed some wisdom and advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

A:  The foam is due to excess proteins in your water.  Saltwater aquarists use protein skimmers to remove it.  It's like the bubbles in a toilet bowl when you urinate.  You can remove the foam over time with water changes.  Or you can remove it quickly with paper towels.  Place the towels (flat) upon the bubbles, then pull up the towels and dispose of them.  Repeat as long as the bubbles persist.  LA

Hello: We are inquiring to see if you have any young teddy bear hamsters available? We will be in the Des Moines area this weekend, so please send details if you have some available. Thank you!

A:  I'm sitting in my well padded computer chair at home and the hamsters are residing at Aqualand.  You'll need to call them (Aqualand, not the hamsters) at 515 283-0300 to get your answers.  LA

Mandi, Iowa, May 11, 2009
Just checking to see if you have any more Hedgehogs in yet. If you do how old are they? Thanks

A:  I don't know.  You'll need to call Aqualand at 515 283-0300 to get your answers.  LA

Joanne Slutsky, Champaign, IL, May 11, 2009
Hi: Do you have any giant African black millipedes for sale? We had one for several years, but it died recently. We're hoping to replace it with another millipede, if at all possible. If you have any, do you ship to IL?  Thanks,


A:  We haven't seen these guys on our wholesale lists for probably a half year or so.  We don't really ship critters.  Since your email address suggests you're a teacher, I'd suggest Carolina Biological Supply.  LA

Josh MacDonald, Waukee, IA, May 9, 2009
I came in today to Aqualand to look around a bit and saw a "Giant Asian Perch". Are these new or was it a trade in? How big do they get? Thanks!

Giant Asian Perch

We've never had one of these before.  It appears to be Lates calcarifer -- an Australian fish raised as an aquaculture crop.  Fairly expensive for a farm-raised fish.

Here's an Aquaculture chart that indicates they hit 4.4 pounds at the age of two years.  In Australia they call them barramundi.  In Thailand they call them sea bass.  In Chicago (where mine came from) they call them giant Asian perch.  In restaurants they call them tasty.  LA

Victor-Alan Weeks, Atlanta, GA, May 11, 2009
Hello, it has been a while. I have frog eggs and I was wondering who would be best to pick up food in the tank, before and after eggs hatch? Ghost shrimp have a bad rep for eating baby fish, fry, very small animals in the water as well as fish food, so I'm not sure. But also Mystery snails will eat fish eggs and clean up crud/leftovers on the bottom, but will they eat frog eggs? Thanks!

A:  You don't mention what type of frog eggs.  Most are covered with a protective gelatinous goo that keeps most predators and organisms from bothering them.  It may not protect them from large, hungry snails.  However, your best bet is to avoid feeding the eggs anything.  Then feed the tadpoles very little.  No snails.  No shrimp.  Gravel vacuum your gravel if you accidentally overfeed.  LA

Jennifer Simek, Lubbock, TX, May 12, 2009
Hello - I saw on your website that you grow the plants on the list below.  Watersprite
Different watersprite
Japanese moss balls
I couldn't find the sale prices for them, though.  If you sell them, could you send me prices and quantities and sizes of the plants for sale?  Can you also approximate the shipping costs for me? Thank you!

A:  We don't list plant prices because we don't ship plants.  LA

Jeremy Nycz , May 13, 2009
I was reading a section on your web page that stated you have never known a blue lobster that didn't eat fish... Well I have one who doesn't... at all...He is about 10 inches long (tip of claw to tip of tail and is in a 50 gallon tank with an 11 inch Bichir, two small (3 inch) iridescent sharks, two large oscars and about 12 feeder fish at all times... He has never even attempted to snack on any fish... In fact, he seems to be friends with the two iridescent sharks... It's not like fish aren't around him either, as he is VERY active and is almost too "wild" for my tank... He climbs everything, destroys everything and his mission in life seems to be "escape from tank"... He is very pretty, but I would not recommend large ones for anyone who has a tank under 125.

A:  I'll add your comments in the lobster section.  LA

Philip Dearing, Vancouver, BC, Canada, May 13, 2009
I was wondering if you could help? I have a couple of tropical fish tanks, with live plants and some shrimp and a few guppies. And today I noticed that there were these funny little white worms moving around on the back of the glass in one of my tanks. They're less than a 32nd of an Inch long at most. I was wondering if you knew what they were? If they're bad, how to get rid of them? Thanks for your time,

A:  Dozens of different animacules inhabit your gravel.  They eat the extra food you've been overfeeding.  They're a large part of your clean up crew.  Examine your tank with a flashlight some late night after it's been dark for a few hours.  You'll be amazed.  Reduce your food rations and you'll see the worms (and other critters) gradually disappear.  LA

Josh MacDonald, Waukee, IA, May 13, 2009
I was thinking about setting up a 10 gallon tank for a tiger salamander that I saw you had in aqualand today.....Would it be ok for 2 to live in the 10 gallon? Thanks

A:  Two will work fine.  LA

Connie Mei, Seattle, WA, May 14
Hello I stumbled over your site when searching for fish information.
I have a 30 gallon freshwater tank with a  Marineland pf 150 filter kept at a stable 68 degrees. I have remaining 1 comet goldfish. His oranda friends died from what I believe was ick and now he is showing the same symptoms. He has been clamping his fins and also flapping (?) them rapidly. He also will accelerate randomly and glide and slide against the filter and the side of the tank. He hasn't been eating his flake food as much for the past three days. I have started adding dissolved salt to the water in the tank to start treating possible ick. The current temperature of the tank is on the lower end of the range so I would like to know if I need to increase it slowly to help rid him of the ick and not to shock him with a raise in temperature. I also have an over abundant supply of algae growth, which he doesn't seem to like eating, and would like to know if there is anything I could put into the tank with the comet to help control it or at least reduce the growth? Thanks for your help.

A:  Ich looks like salt sprinkled on your fish.  Goldfish hardly ever get it.  Salt won't really cure it.  The best medications provide a malachite green and formalin comdination.  Rather than give you a treatise by email, I recommend you read What is Ich?  LA
Use AlgaeFix to control your algae.

Victor-Alan Weeks, Atlanta, GA, May 16, 2009
Hi, I was wondering how do you keep your aquarium water so clear. My cichlid water eventually gets a brown tinge and stuff grows on the filter pad and on aquarium walls.  Also my bottom feeder tank water gets cloudy quick. What should I use/ do?

A:  Every week I personally wipe the inside front (and back) glass with an algae pad.  Then I remove 25% (50% on big cicxhlds) of the water with a gravel vacuum cleaner.  You can get rid of the color in your water by filtering it thru carbon.  LA

Alecia Dooley, probably Iowa, May 17, 2009
I have filters made by Aqua Tech.  What is the difference between those
and the filters you sell in your store?  The ones that look home made. 
I tried to clean off some slime to reuse a filter but the filter
started coming apart in my hand, is that normal?  I am assuming
cleaning them in some way so you can use them longer is not
recommended.  I put a new one in anyway but I would appreciate a
response to the difference between yours and AT's and also an opinion
on what reusing them does to them.
I also just recently purchased a salt tank and I have two pumps
(filters).  They take 4 filters apiece.  They are penguin filters size
C.  Is there a difference between a salt filter and a fresh?  I haven't
looked @ size difference, or price for that matter,  but would the
filters from your store be sufficient?  Could you also tell me the
benefit ratio regarding 2 vs. 4 filters per pump?  I am sure that it
makes the tank cleaner but is the added filter really worth the benefit
since I have live sand and rock in the tank?  Your opinions would be


Didn't know if you would like to see or not but here they are, I always
like looking @ other tanks as I think they are pretty.
SALTWATER:  75 gallon; 150 watts light; live sand-I'm not sure how much; live rock-those 3 piled against each other on the L side plus a few frags as well as the piece on top of that cave like thing; 2 clown fish as well
as a puffer fish-although I can't find the puffer.


FRESHWATER: 30 gallon; low to medium light; gravel bottom-duh; 5 different kinds of plants; spelling forewarning; arachnius, mundo grass, java moss, a corn plant and the 1 in the lower R corner. 7 fish; pleco, loach and 5 of something that look like a clown loach although they have lost their
color since I got them from you. Plant and fish are all from you. As
you can see I have a power head in there. I hope to take one from my
salt tank and put it in my fresh in place of the one I have as there is
no option to aerate the tank. What is the benefit of aeration besides
putting more oxygen in the tank? Thanks again for your time.

A1:  I'm assuming you're actually asking about filter cartridges.  Aqua Tech is made by Marineland for Wal-Mart.  The main difference in the cartridges we sell is price.  Since we buy them by the gross, we can sell them cheaper than the Marineland/Wal-Mart cartridges.  The company that makes them for us says their carbon is superior.  I don't have a good way to measure that particular difference.  We use them and find them quite satisfactory.  I rinse them off and re-use them because I am also chintzy.  I put them in the sink and hose them down.  They cannot be re-used very often -- especially since the carbon gets used up long before the cartridge falls apart in your hands.
A2:  Many saltwater aficionados don't use carbon filtration because it may remove some of the trace elements contained in saltwater mixes.  They remove the carbon from their cartridges.  The Penguin is another Marineland filter for which we carry our "generic" cartridges.  Some filters contain extra space for various specialized removers (ammonia, phosphates, etc).  Having two extra regular cartridges would be about the same as having only two.  I'll refer your other saltwater questions to Adam on 42nd Street or Scott out on 86th.
A3:  Aeration takes place at your tank's surface -- not in the column of bubbles.  Powerheads and power  filters aerate your tank just fine by turning over the water.  In addition to adding oxygen for your fish, aeration also furnishes oxygen to the beneficial bacteria that "eat" your fish wastes.  Aeration also removes carbon dioxide.  LA

Mark Haydon, probably Iowa, May 17, 2009
I am looking for Endlers. If you would get some in, I am willing to buy up to ten pair.  Thanks,

A:  I think you are the same person I talked to on the phone a few days ago.  I mentioned that I hadn't seen Endlers on the lists for a long time.  You are so in luck.  We have 12 (males only) coming on the 20th.  Check with us after 5 pm to see if they come in.  LA

Lisa England, Los Angeles, CA, May 18, 2009
My red tail tiger shovelnose catfish hurt his eye. It is a light blue or light grey color, and I was wondering if it will heal up and be normal again? He is 2 1/2 inches. Also should their water be really clean and do they get more active?

5-inch shovelnose X red-tail cross.

A:  No way to predict the prognosis of his eyeball.  He will likely heal just fine, but who knows?  Little ones like to hide.  They do get more active as they grow.  LA

Stephen, Schneeberger, Oklahoma, May 19, 2009
Hi,  I love your site. My question is What type of goldfish would be easiest to breed and raise???? I want to breed and raise them for fishing. I have 500 gallon bait tanks. It is eithier fathead minnow or goldfish. What would you suggest? Thanks


A:  Plain vanilla goldfish (often called comets) are the easiest to raise.  In Iowa, we can't use goldfish as bait in artificial lakes.  Many states prohibit the use of any invasive species as a bait.  Check your local laws.  Fathead minnows are legal pretty much everywhere.  As cheap as minnows are at the bait house, it's sure a lot cheaper to buy them than it is to raise them.  Check your county extension office if you want to get into aquaculture.  LA


Stephen, Schneeberger, Oklahoma, May 19, 2009
Larry, Where can I get plain vanilla goldfish? PetsMart??
Get a bunch of plants??? lower water to 60..... everyday raise it by 3 degrees? until they spawn?
That about right?? also how big do they have to be?
I also found this on the it somewhat right??
Goldfish are generally easy to breed! They are a very social animal and do well when kept in groups.
Goldfish typically shoal, forage and feed in groups and are likely to breed as well. It is best to add oxygenating plants such as Anacharis in the aquarium for the spawning process and for eggs to adhere to.
To induce spawning, the temperature can be slowly dropped to around 11° C (60° F ) and then slowly warmed until they spawn. This is done to mimic the conditions found in nature when spring arrives which is the only time they will spawn in the wild. Feeding lots of high protein food such live brine shrimp and worms during this time will also induce spawning.
Before spawning as the temperature increases, the male will chase the female in a non-aggressive way around the aquarium. This can last for several days. The colors of both fish will intensify, the male somewhat more than the female. During spawning the male will push the female against the plants while both fish gyrate from side to side. This stimulates the female to drop tiny eggs which the male will then fertilize. The eggs will stick to the plants by sticky threads. Spawning can last 2 or three hours and can produce up to 10,000 eggs. The parents, when finished will then eat as many eggs as they can find.
For this reason it is best to remove the parents after spawning is complete. You will need to feed one of the various specialty foods for fry (see Foods for Fry) until they become big enough to eat flake or brine shrimp. At first the fry are a dark brown or black color in order to better hide and not be eaten by larger fish. They gain their adult color after several months and can be put in with larger fish once they reach about 1 inch long.


A:  You can spawn goldfish easily this time of year.  Put 10 six-inchers in an outdoor pond.  The weather warming will induce them to spawn.  Keep them well fed without overfeeding.  Remove the breeders once they spawn, if you want maximum production.  Feed a miro-food once the fry begin free-swimming.  Make sure goldfish are a legal bait in OK.  LA
PS  I have no idea if your Oklahoma petSmart sells goldfish.
PPS  Goldfish sell so cheaply, it's cheaper to buy them for bait than it is to raise them.  Quicker, too -- by several months.


Chuck Estes, Spokane, WA, May 19, 2009
On your bichir page there was something you forgot to mention. The beggars are loaded for bear with personality and highly addictive.


A:  I'll add your comments to the page.  LA


Mike Kowalski, May 20, 2009
I have a female Emperor Scorpion who can't open her left claw. When I give her a cricket, she will take it in her left claw and kinda stab at it with her left attempting to crush it. With some amount of struggle, she can eventually get the cricket into her mouth. Should I be concerned about her or just let her live with a closed left claw? Thanks,




A:  As long as she has one working claw, she should have no problem surviving.  They don't so much crush food in their claws as they chew food into pieces in their mouths.  LA
