I totally agree that different people like different fish. I love my plecos but find it hard to believe that anyone would want to buy cichilds. I dislike the way their mouth looks. So negative. A...

Well, this is a female and a male shrimp. Maybe he is just getting to know her. Flirting maybe? But mating is truly very quick, like a second, and when it happens their bellies are supposed to be...

How are your RCS shrimp managing to survive? This is amazing to me. Space wise you can safely add another fish but I feel for those shrimp. They have to live in constant terror.

Shrimp are totally fine with fenbendazole as are all fish. Snails may have an issue but not all of them. Nerites, however, have been proven to be affected. I also believe that the liquid goat...

Could be getting ready to molt and then you will have a berried female soon as this one definitely has a saddle. Next molt and she will get the attention of every guy in the tank.

I would remove as many of the snails that you want to keep and then treat the tank with goat de-wormer (Safe Guard/fenbendazole). The goat de-wormer is liquid and is easy to use. You need 2ML per 10...

One of the females must have been berried when you got them as it takes about 3 weeks from the time they berry up until they release babies. Other possibility is that you are seeing something else...

Same here. I buy my fish as pets. When they breed, however, I don't have the space to keep them all and I have sold the fry and juveniles before. But I keep my adults.
