That may have been an over-reaction. Worms are just part of the circle of life in the planted tank world. You could have given the moss-ball a bleach dip, then soaked it in dechlorinated water (with...

Very doubtful. This just looks like a normal little nematode. Fish will likely eat it, or it will live in the substrate until they do. Nothing to be concerned about.

Just create some flow at the surface. Mosquito larvae will bot be able to breath/swim. But honestly just netting most of them out is the best bet.

Well, most floaters come from places with high humidity. You may not have luck with anything other than submerged plants. The Lilly is probably fine because most of it is protected by the water.

I wouldn't try it, honestly. Just ruffle up some dirt in the yard, spread some seeds (there has to be some lying around the neighborhood) and wait. Or dig up a dandelion root and break it up, same...

I agree with you, digital. But if he is set on killing, I really think freezing is the most humane way, and if he doesn't already have clove oil he probably won't go out and buy it for some snails....

For humane, I would freeze them, then do what you will with the substrate.

Is it recently planted? I added an amazon sword to my tank and at first it did not do so well, looked a bit like your pick. Once things got established, it took off like a rocket. Now it covers most...

I had a danio just drop after 9 months or so. The others were fine, it made no sense. Just his time to go I supposed.

I don't see the difference between a power head and a sponge filter as far as movement, plus one will help keep nitrites/ammonia at bay. And you're going to be swimming in algae if you go with your...

Wonderful! I love this and that Pothos is really taking over! I personally prefer the over grown "chaotic" look. Most people try to keep their tanks a little too sterile.

I have a few tubifex worms in my 20g planted, I've had them on other tanks as well.

Found a new Critter

What are these things? I'm thinking Scuds or some type of amphipod, but I've never seen one with the hairs/spikes on it. I got them from a local pond, hoping to catch some daphnia. If these are...

Pretty much all plants I own can survive in a mason jar of clean water near a windowsill. It all depends on how long you need them to live.

Why not skip the amanos and just add some copper to the tank? You won't have much of an algae problem without livestock anyway if you monitor your photo-period/nutrient dosing.

Honestly, even if...
