Tucked in the rolling hills of West Virginia, the town of Parkersburg is described by those who live there as an idyllic place to raise a family. It’s also home to a sprawling DuPont chemical plant that manufactures Teflon. Wilbur Tennant’s family farm was located next to a “non-hazardous” landfill operated by the chemical company. When he noticed his cows were mysteriously dying, he filmed what was happening on the farm, and the toxic legacy of C8 – DuPont’s Teflon chemical – was discovered. Then one autumn day in 2000, local schoolteacher Joe Kiger opened his mail and found a letter in his water bill informing him that C8 was in his drinking water, but safe for consumption. The trail of deception he and his wife Darlene uncovered made the sleepy town of Parkersburg the epicenter of one of the largest class action lawsuits in the history of environmental law. Internal documents and secret in-house studies reveal a disturbing truth: DuPont had knowingly been pumping a poisonous chemical into the air and public water supply of more than 70,000 people for decades. Bucky Bailey, the son of a former DuPont worker named Sue, is now 35 and happily married. But Bucky was born with severe facial deformities. As he awaits the birth of his first child, geneticists have warned him and his wife Melinda that there is a 50% chance the baby will inherit the deformities he attributes to sky-high levels of C8 in his blood. As the citizens of Parkersburg rise up against the forces that polluted their town, the story builds out to dozens of other American cities. Exposure to the chemical has even become a global phenomenon, spreading to places like China, Australia, and the Netherlands. Parkersburg is ground zero for this story, but this clearly is not about one place or one chemical: because of the power of the chemical lobby, C8 is one of more than 80,000+ untested chemicals that have been approved for use, their dangers unknown.

This time in exotic pets 101 I wanted to talk about a boa species I don’t see very often in the reptile hobby.
That’s a shame, because for boa’s they are very relaxed and shy animals in comparison to Boa constrictor sp.

– Dovii Fish vs red Devil Cichlid is today’s topic. This is the penn Plax canister filter that I swear by. It’s a top rated seller and does 700 gallons per hour.
Penn Plax 700 Filter:
Who wins this one: dovii vs red devil. Get a few fans and blow them across the top. They can be cheap clip on desk fans, or something to that extent. No need for ice in the tank, as that creates cold spots. Using fans helps the water to evaporate faster which helps keep things cooler. BUT my outdoor stock tank reached 85 during the summer and my fish were perfectly fine. Just make sure they have loads of surface agitation for gas exchange, because warm water is low in oxygen.
I’m in Sydney. If your water gets a little warm, add some air stones to increase the oxygen in the water. If you can’t do water changes to decrease the temp, as the others have stated, float a couple frozen 2 litre bottles of water in the tank. My tank is outside, remember when we had that 47C day? I was doing water changes daily keeping the temp down!
Once my heater went crazy and shot my temp up so I had to think quick. I got a baggie full of ice and floated it in the tank. It slowly brought the temperature down (I had to replace the ice several times) over a couple hours. I am being very serious here, I have had to do the same thing. I had a turkey in my freezer I put it in a plastic bag and floated it. It worked great and not to fast to kill the fish. I did make sure it didn’t touch the sides of the tank.
I recommend the powdered version of this, Seachem Safe. Same chemicals and one bottle so far has lasted me 2 years and is only 1/2 used with water changes every 5-7 days with a 75 gallon and 40 gallon tank. Let’s do a mind/spirit experiment. JUST SEND A QUICK ONE-SECOND GOOD VIBE!
Everyone send That fish and her sick fish some positive thoughts tonight. Her fish seems to be sick, but it still has a chance; it’s just up to its little body to heal itself, and perhaps it needs our extra help. I’d guess the adorable rock decoration. He might have swam into it, while goldfish are beautiful they’re clumsy lol keeping water clean will help heal
It is great how much my fish has healed over night. Still a red streak but the scales are no longer raised and the streak has shrunk. All I did was a 75% waterchange. Just wanted to let you know that my fish fully recovered after 2 days. I still have no idea what caused the read streak on its back, but it has been fine for 2 weeks now with no other sign of redness.
My goldy seems sick. I checked my parameters and I have an ammonia spike. Probably because I changed substrate. Do i need to treat with medication or will daily water changes work? I think it may be fin rot. Dovii cichlids vs red devil
Hello! Is there an easy way to do water changes for a 50 gallon tank? I’ve been using a 5-6 gallon bucket and dragging water back and forth from the bathroom down the hall. It’s really kicking my butt 😅 I don’t mind burning calories but every now and then I end up making a mess. Photo of my little Thor for attention!
– Red Devil cichlids can be super aggressive. I highly advise you keep your fish well fed. One of my favorite foods is the Northfin Cichlid brand. Here is a link:
Northfin Cichlid Food:
I do not get why people try and cycle with fish food. It takes so much longer since you have to wait for it to decay, it makes a huge mess, and you can’t confirm the amount of ammonia you’re dosing. I would DEFINITELY go with Dr. Tims Aquatics Ammonium Chloride listed above.
Where I live, the water is very hard, what are your guys ways to getting it down? This is my 20 gal hex tanks reading for the day. None of the fish are weak or sick but I have always had hard water.
Red Devil Cichlid Community tank. I have a new 90 gallon tank coming. I have sold my 60gallon community tank to a friend. I am unsure of what to stock my tank with. I really loved discus fish but I understand they can be a lot of work. I currently also have a 45gal tank with 8 african mbunas. Im debating on doing discus tank, a rainbow tank, south american, or moving my mbunas to the 90gallon.
What are some things I should know about discus? What are some tank mates I can keep with discuss? Can I keep rainbows with them? What should I know about water parameters for them?
I am newer to keeping Mbuna. I currently have (1) Bumblebee, (2) Red Zebra, (2) johanni, (1)melanochromis auratus, (1)Pindani, and (1)albino flame tip. So far they seem to get along but I am not sure if I have stocked correctly. What should I stock if I move the mauna to the 90gal?
Thank you for your help! Tank pictures of 90gallons would help as well.
Do you have any issues with your kh levels? Mine dropped from 6 to 0 in two days, with this substrate, I didn’t want it that low as I have a snail. Just bought some better remineralising powder as I use ro water and a bit of tap water (tap has too much copper in it to keep snails unfortunately). Hoping today’s water change will help.
I know, was going it wouldn’t do that otherwise it can crash the cycle in the filter as surely it would destabilise the pH so that could shift a lot and cause pH spikes? I had to upgrade to a bigger tank, I’d already bought the substrate, then I found out I had too much copper in tap water which is why I couldn’t keep snails alive before, hence going ro route, the cycle from old sponge wasn’t enough to see the new filter so suffered an ammonia spike and yesterday there was nitrite too, although this has gone today. But I’m worried it’s because the kh is none existent, I’ve heard though it won’t work for so long and it will probably all rise again but that would be months away, possibly a year, I don’t know. I’ve hot cuttle bone in for the snail but he doesn’t go near it and hasn’t been in long enough to break down, as the tank is only about 11 days old.

My heart and soul were never mine to own, what you care to die for? What you care to die for?
We die alone, we’ll all die young, what you care to die for?
What you care to die from?
Snow glistens on the ledge, whiskey on the bed,
Shake it out and light a cigarette
Miss me when you, you wish you weren’t right.
Shake me all out if I’m wrong, for you, for you.
Shake it all out when I’m gone, I, for you.
Is the devil so bad if he cries in his sleep, while the earth turns,
And his kids learned to say, fuck you they don’t, love you.
Does the devil get scared if she dies in her dreams, where the earth burns, she cries ’cause she’s nothing like, is she like you?
What you want from a devil like me, devil like me?
You see the devil don’t mean to be evil,
He just regrettably forgets to exceed expectation.
Holes riddled in your head, little bit of lead,
Shake it out and line silhouette
Miss me when you, you wish weren’t kind of glad.
Shake me all out when you’re done, for you, for you
Shake it all out when I’m gone, I, for you
Is the devil so bad if he cries in his sleep, while the earth turns,
‘Cause his kids learned to say, fuck you they don’t, love you.
Does the devil get scared if she dies in her dreams,
While the earth burns, she cries ’cause she’s nothing like you,
Is she like you?
What do you want from a devil like me, am I, like you?
