With a tiny tank like this, a little bump on the substrate made a huge difference in feel, especially if you look up close. I started with a more drastic slope, which I think looks good from a...

I never boil any wood that I put in my tanks. In this case, I think I'll keep it floating. I hope it will keep floating, or else I'll suspend it with a string.

No I did not tie the moss to the...

I don't really keep snails, just those tiny ones that hitch hiked with the plants, which I try to remove when I can. Those seems fine to me, I still see them here and there.

Btw, before you posted, I am at 4 tablespoons of salt now in 15G of nett water. The water is at at least 1 ppt now, if not 1.5-2 ppt (the division is so tiny).

How much salt to add?

Most of my fish has ich now, I am doing the heat and salt treatment.

The problem is the tank has plants and shrimps, and the fishes are all tetras (which don't like salt too much). The upside is...

Shrimp only tank and fertilisation

Substrate is Seachem Fluorite.

I plant heavy from day one, I never saw ammonia. It's either the plant or the bacterial film on the plant. Before I planted I also soaked the substrate in water and...

I just got some amazon swords. The tank is low tech. The substrate is Seachem Fluorite. I also dose the various Seachem Flourish, albeit infrequently. Do I need to get root tabs? I read that the...

Shrimp only tank and fertilisation

The tank is 22G, less than a months old, and quite heavily planted. The tank is low tech, with little fertilisation. I envision the tank as an NPT.

I just introduced 17 adult RCS, with at least 3...

I certainly hope so, out of the 10 adults in this batch those 2 are most male looking. The rest are obvious female.

However, I think the one on the right has the possibility of being a female. The...
