They dissolve over time but it takes a long time and it leaves a white ring for even longer. But you can avoid this by getting a mix of nerites, like one tiger, one horned, one zebra, etc. so they...

Smaller pebbles about 3/4 mm in diameter work great with goldfish as they pick them up and clean them off. A lot of food can get trapped between large river rocks that the goldfish cannot move to get...

You could get Mopani driftwood. That rarely has any sharp edges. Anubias, crypts and java fern were fine with my goldfish. I second the fact that they love duckweed. I used to grow it in another...

If you decide to go with meds, I would recommend Rid Ich by Kordon. Safe for all sensitive fish. I used it before with great success.
I personally would go with meds once a positive id of Ich is...

You don't need to change the water every day. I usually change water in my shrimp tanks once every 2 weeks. Some people prefer to do it weekly. But a daily water change is overkill.

Lol. The parsley was meant for some soup for me. Never tried parsley with shrimp either. But I picked up cilantro by mistake. Before I toss it out I wanted to see if shrimp could eat it.

Use all new water, seed the tank with a little filter media from your established tank and toss in the new shrimp. They have so little bioload that they can go into an un-cycled tank. The small...

Or you could go with 4 otos and still add 6 dwarf corys (pygmys, habrosus or hastatus) or panda corys as they stay relatively small as well. Corys tend to keep the tank cleaner as they remove most...
