I would not buy that story. They were likely not Amano shrimp. Aquarium salt is not the same as sea salt and the salinity would ever get high enough.

Did not read all the replies. I would have recommended an African Butterfly fish, but that was already mentioned and you have no top, so never mind.

I suspect there may be a problem with your tank temps. I keep my tanks at room temperature and they get in the upper 70s, a bit warm for CRS. I loose some of my adults every summer but a few of the...

Easiest is to let the larvae hatch in fresh water but only fill the tank 1/2 way. Remove the mother and then add double strength saltwater. Problem is with feeding. I have tried 3 times and only had...

Move the shrimp now. The white clouds will eat them. The corys will eat shrimplets. The otos would be fine with them and I don't know about the rams, never had any. But the white clouds will take the...

Trap them and remove them. I had them in tanks with shrimp and they will out compete the shrimp over food. You seem to have a large population if your picture is representative of the entire tank. I...

I disagree on the cycling part. If you add 10 shrimp to a 10 gal uncycled tank, they will produce so little waste that it would never become an issue. I would personally not hesitate to put that many...

Mulberry LEaves

I just bought a pound of them. There is no way my shrimp will eat all those leaves in 100 years. In the meantime I have to find a way to preserve them. Any idea?

How large is the shrimp tank? Plecos produce a lot of waste and shrimp like the water clean. Otherwise I see no problems with it. I kept shrimp and adult L340s and L211s in the same tank and those...

Zebra otos are about 1 1/2 times the size of regular common otos. But they require a little more protein in their diet, so some sinking bloodworm sticks etc. every so often will keep them around for...

Yes you do depending on the species you get. Hypancistruses generally stay small but cost more. A rubberlip would be ok as would be 2 clown plecos. Even a BN would do well in a 29 gal. Check...

I kept one panda cory (last survivor of a group) with Weitzmani corys for years. Since they look very similar in coloration I am pretty sure my panda thinks he is a Weitzmani. 2 weeks ago I added 4...
