If you're worried about planting things in the sand, just get some floaters that will give the fry good places to hide. Floating stems that would work are Hornwort, Anachris or Wisteria (I find...

Most non-aggressive nano fish should be fine with the adult shrimp. I keep guppies and danios in with my cherries.

Wow. After Googling "Leech Movement", it looks like that's what it was. Didn't know they had a sucker at each end, with the head being the small end. It's still weird because I can't find any images...

Hitchhiker worm ID?

Just wondering if anyone could hazard a guess as to what type of critter I avoided putting in my tank recently.

I noticed it squirming around on the side of a potted crypt as I removed the...

All I can say is, if you get plants from a Big Box store, clean them well before you put them in the tank. In the past few weeks, I've observed not just occasional hitchhikers, but entire ecologies...

Hitchhiker Plant Id

These two plants came attached to some anachris I bought. The big one started the same size as the smaller one on the left. I think the difference is due to planting depth when I stuck them in. The...

I have a dirted Fluval V, and planted some ludwigia repens which responded pretty well with the stock lighting. Definitely not for a plain gravel bottom tank, tho.

They'd require high light to make them stay low enough to be useful as a fore-ground plant, yes?

Of course, I guess it also depends on the size of a tank what's considered "foreground" :)

Thanks for the responses, all!

The Aqueon 50w does indeed look snug. Based on its dimensions I thought it was going to be too tall when I looked at it. Still not sure if I want the heater in...

I see the term "EI dosing" all over this board, but don't know what it is exactly, especially when it's mentioned separately from ferts.

2.5g Mini-bow LED Lighting?

So, anyone who's every had one of these ubiquitous 2.5 gallon plastic tanks (usually by Aqueon) knows that the lighting is kind of a joke.
