subtropicalfish

The new minnows are settled in and it's quite nice to watch. I just organized a trade for a Fluval canister filter, which will hopefully do a better job of creating riverine flow than the little internal filter can. Still waiting on that driftwood to sink, but it's close, I can feel it. #cardinalminnows #minnows #subtropicalfish #subtropicalaquarium #rivertank #leaflitter #aquarium #aquariums #aquariumsofinstagram #fishtank #tropicalfish #biotope #blackwateraquarium #freshwateraquarium #plantedaquarium #lowtechaquarium #dirtedaquarium #aquariumlife #aquascape #aquascaping #photooftheday #instagood #wood #leaves #water #life #nature #beautiful #blurthelines

New additions! My usual trusted LFS only gets cardinal minnows sporadically, and they disappear pretty quickly once they're stocked. I checked a few other shops today and managed to find these mixed in with a bunch of similar-looking small fish under the moniker "white mountain tetras". πŸ€” Fortunately the shop was as good at counting as they were at labelling and I got 22 fish for the price of 15! They have similar markings to my existing cardinals, but even if these are really White Cloud Mountain minnows they will still be able to breed and hybridize with my old stock. Plenty of egg-laden females as well, so perhaps we shall see some fry soon enough! #newfish #cardinalminnows #whitecloudmountainminnows #minnows #subtropicalfish #leaflitter #aquarium #aquariums #aquariumsofinstagram #fishtank #tropicalfish #biotope #blackwateraquarium #freshwateraquarium #plantedaquarium #lowtechaquarium #dirtedaquarium #aquariumlife #aquascape #aquascaping #photooftheday #instagood #wood #leaves #water #life #nature #beautiful #blurthelines

I love my cardinal minnows - they're peaceful little explorers, flitting in and out of shelter effortlessly. I've been debating bolstering their numbers, but I had another thought - now that I have a four foot aquarium, zebra danios would make for interesting and exciting companions! Anyone have experience with combining these two subtropical fish? #cardinalminnows #vietnameseminnows #subtropicalfish #subtropicalaquarium #danios #leaflitter #aquarium #aquariums #aquariumsofinstagram #fishtank #tropicalfish #biotope #blackwateraquarium #freshwateraquarium #plantedaquarium #lowtechaquarium #dirtedaquarium #aquariumlife #aquascape #aquascaping #photooftheday #instagood #wood #leaves #water #life #nature #beautiful #blurthelines

First video is when I bought/rescued them from a tank with a Malawi and a few oscars and several different species of catfish and got them home I didn’t have much hope for them they had really severe white spot and a bad fungal infection the second video of them is now 2 weeks after getting them, with the right water conditions and the right treatment I’m happy to say they look a million times better #channableheri #dwarfchanna #fungulinfection #whitespot #notmuchhope #pulledthrough #channa #snakahead #recovery #rescued #purchased #speciesonlytank #treatment #goodcare #beautifulfish #rainbowsnakehead #stillnotahundredpercent #gettingthere #plantedtank #subtropicalfish #NOTTROPICALFISH

I haven’t been giving nearly enough exposure to these charbroiled beauties! I love their cute little faces and the red marks around their eyes. #goldbarbs #subtropicalfish #axolotltankmates #shinyfish #schoolingfish #curiousfish

His features are so unique!The longhorn cowfish, also called the horned boxfish, is a type of boxfish known for its long horns that are on its head like a cow or bull. They are found naturally in the Indo-Pacific region and can grow to be 50cm long. #longhorncowfish #hornedboxfish #tropicalfish #subtropicalfish #fish #underthesea #ocean #aquariumlife #beautifulfish

Gold barbs are really curious fish. They always want to know what you’re doing! #goldbarbs #subtropicalfish #schoolingfish #puntiussemifasciolatus

Name that fish? N8 and I have been wanting a few of these guys for a while. I stopped by a shop I haven't been to for a minute and they told me he's been in the store for 6 months.. That's a proven fish in my book.. so tell me what you guys think he is! #namethatfish #liferfish #functionbuiltaquatics #tropicalfish #subtropicalfish #riverfish #fishgoals
