The town of Beebe, Ark., had an unusual New Year's Day when it awakened to the sight of countless deceased birds that had fallen out of the sky. State wildlife officials started testing carcasses of red-winged blackbirds that rained down on the town of Beebe New Year's Eve. Biologist's suspect severe weather or fireworks, instead of disease or poison, brought on the birds to fall out of the air.
For some of you who are wondering what fish made Blood Parrots, the original fish used make Parrots were Midas Cichlid (Amphilophus Citrinellus) and Redhead Cichlid (Vieja Synspilum). There is a lot of misinformation saying Severums were used and thats how they get their shape but this is not true.
Did anyone repaired a broken glass before on a tank. I am in the process of repairing my one that cracked the bottom glass about two week ago. I have successfully removed the broken peace and ordered a replacement glass (a bit thicker than the original).
What type of silicon should I use and any tips on doing a neat job with it will be appreciated???
I found this article on the web its a must read .... Would like to hear your thoughts about this

Hi.... I am thinking of purchasing my own water test kit but need some recommendations. Digital or Liquid kits? I want something that can test most of the different parameters and that is accurate.
Hi....Does anybody have an idea to cool down a 180 litre tank. The
problem in South Africa is where I am staying that the ambient temperature in
the room with my fish tank gets to high during the day and my tank heats up to
about 29 degrees Celsius. I have a fan on in the room but it doesn't seem to
help any, except moving the hot air around. I thought at first it was a heater
problem, but it is not, I have disconnected it completely. At night the temperature
will drop somewhat. I know BP can handle 28 degrees but my other fish are not
Thank you all for your contributions and wisdom during the year. Best wishes for the New Year to all of you and your fishy friends!
Right now i have a 10 gal. tank that has a few guppies in it, a platy, and a black skirt tetra. My plan is to not buy any more and then when about a year or whoever long it takes and i have no more fish, i want to get a parrot cichlid.
He (or she) would be all by himself in my tank...is that ok?
Is 10 gal. an ok size?
How long about would he get and how old?
