  • Howdy from Wyoming! - Welcome to the Official Forum of NANFA - NANFA Forum
    various invertebrates over the years including dragon and damselflys mayflys stoneflys leeches and crayfish to name a few As I age in the hobby I find myself draw towards N American natives more and more but I also find myself looking for something that I can maintain long term I currently have a custom 40B turtle tank set up as a paludarium with a continuously breeding population of White Cloud Mountain minnows and I m working on a similar tank for North American pygmy sunfish My dream tank yet to be achieved is a 30gal coldwater sculpin tank Tanks are planted with locally harvested aquatic and semiaquatic plants Most of my tanks are set up as paludariums using a method I ve developed over the years All this started with a simple 20gal turtle tank that was originally designed to hold carnivorous plants and fish Never had much luck with the carnivorous plants but fell in love with the tank style Edited by WyRenegade 14 April 2014 04 23 PM Back to top Quote MultiQuote 2 mattknepley mattknepley NANFA Member Smack dab between the Savannah and the Saluda Posted 14 April 2014 07 55 PM Welcome back I d be interested to hear about collecting in Wyoming That s one big beautiful state wonder what it looks like under the water Matt Knepley No thanks a third of a gopher would merely arouse my appetite Back to top Quote MultiQuote 3 Guest WyRenegade Guest WyRenegade Guests Posted 14 April 2014 08 53 PM Thanks Most of my collecting is done in some of the larger streams and a few local ponds with food strainers We gather mostly invertebrates but occasionally I bring back a few fish to throw in the native tanks Mainly I focus on fry or minnows any

    to get ich which I hadn t realized at the time and die over the winter I have a surviving green frog tadpole but not the adults and at least one trapdoor snail It s approximately 1500 gallons exact not known as the pond was here when we bought the house I m working on getting more snails and clams expect to find some green frog eggs tadpoles or frogs and would love to find some american toad eggs or tadpoles but am having a lot of trouble with the toads at least locally I m attempting to catch some dragonfly damselfly larvae and backswimmers to handle mosquito larvae while the pond is fish free Later I m thinking rosy reds in the immediate term once I ve dealt with the ich and the current high amonia due to everything dying I suspect to be pretty and fun and eat mosquito larvae I m also thinking maybe banded kilifish and some number of banded sunfish I m also considering central mudminnows and either golden spottail or emerald shiners One of my major concerns is having inhabitants that will keep each other from population explosions but also not eat all of

  • hello from kansas - Welcome to the Official Forum of NANFA - NANFA Forum
    06 04 AM Thanks for the welcome We are right on the Neosho river and about 5 minutes from the Council Grove reservor Lots of little creeks and such I have two big concerns and thats the weight of the tank when full of water 850 lbs without the sand and the lighting to keep the plants healthy if I can get past these two obstacles the rest will be easier Back to top Quote MultiQuote 4 Michael Wolfe Michael Wolfe Board of Directors North Georgia Oconee River Drainage Posted 31 March 2014 06 52 AM Welcome Sasha First I would say I totally agree with Isaac s advice Community tanks are a lot of fun and our native minnows and darters and chubs are underappreciated And my experience with crayfish is that they are very active nocturnal hunters and eat fish while they sleep so I don t keep any in my fish tanks at all As far as your 75 gallon tank I dont know what kind and what age your house is but most modern houses will not have a problem if you put the aquarium across the floor joists This will allow several of the floor joists the supporting mechanical studs that make up your floor to share the load of the tank And there are lots of lighting options depending on what you want to do But really you could get away with a couple of four foot shop lights I ran my 75 with two of these four total fluorescent tubes for a long time and had pretty good plant growth This is probably the most economical way to go A year or so ago I switched mine over to a Marineland LED fixture pricey but it works well looks cool and I have
