I've heard that this might happen with Oto's from pet stores. They might not have been fed properly, so in desperation they take to feeding off the slime coats of other fish, and eventually develop a...

Just an update on my tank, which has become somewhat of a jungle as of late given all the growth in my plants (not that the fish and shrimp mind or anything)

Ah, then I probably shouldn't keep them as my tank temperature is typically around 76.5, and my GH is probably closer to 2 or 3. Thanks for the info.

Do Bumblebee Shrimp need R/O Water?

I just have a minor question, hope someone can answer.

My LFS has got some "Bumble Bee Shrimp" on stock for the exact same price as cherry shrimp (which they were being kept with), and I was...

Thank you very much. Also thanks for identifying them as female. I guess that "extension" downwards on the tails is the saddle I've heard about?

Are the earthworms wearing little snorkeling masks?

Joking aside, are you sure they're earthworms? They might be some other species that could've gotten into your tank.

And vermino, I don't...

If those white worms were very long and thin, they were likely detritus worms, which I've heard are common in dirted tanks.

Are these both Red Cherry Shrimp?

So for those who might've seen my threads before, I mentioned that I was going to add cherry shrimp to my planted 10 gallon tank, and I've since done that roughly two weeks ago. I started out small,...

No, not really. However I'm not doing this every day. I was recommended at my lfs that I should only do this once every few days. If I don't see any improvements, then I should do it once a day.

Can't do full tank as the chemical I got isn't safe for inverts. The guy at the lfs told me to do it this way. I just put a drop in a gallon bucket and let the fish swim around for about 15 minutes....

Unidentified growth on tip of Pectoral Fin

Today I noticed that one of my otos has a strange growth on the tip of its left pectoral fin. I'm unsure of what it is, but so far none of the other fish seem to have it. Can anyone identify what it...

Perhaps 5+ panda corydoras for the bottom, and maybe even a mystery snail.

Also, not sure if you've done so already, but you might want to throw in a small piece of driftwood for the otos.

Oh I know that fat otos are good, I was just worried if it was possible to overfeed them, as I'm aware that they're a group known for constantly feeding.

I've heard that puffers can be aggressive, so it probably isn't best to mix them with other fish in most cases.
