This.

A few years ago, when I was raising CRS, I used a sponge filter (it had two sponges) and a marina slim HOB filter. It worked wonders, just make sure you have a sponge on the intake for...

Thanks everyone! I'm still pretty stoked to how fast they got comfortable in my tank. I've recorded many new shrimp tanks before and even for neos, it usually takes about 4 weeks. I know 1 week...

I purchased some Wine Red & Ruby Red Shrimp from orhunterfisher a few weeks ago and received them on 12/20/13. Two nights ago, I noticed that a couple of males swam around like crazy in my tank. I...

They should all hatch within 24 hours of the first one that pops out. The ones that don't usually means the eggs probably did not develop properly and nothing will come of it. Females who release...

I use a fluval shrimp net. It's telescopic, so it can be adjusted to whatever length you wish for.

I raised CRS with co2 and did not experience a high mortality rate of shrimplets. It's all about how you balance it. If you inject enough for your plants to properly absorb most, if not all, the...

If it was cleaned properly, you could use it. But it's probably too much work and I'd just trash it to be honest.
Live sand and Live rock are "LIVE" because there's beneficial bacteria living on...

They are MORE helpful than pond/rams. They're the only ones I know that can scrape algae off your glass. I squish and kill any snail I see in my tank, only nerites are allowed to live and that's...

That's not clado, it's a green string/fuzz algae. Very easy to clean up with amanos. I don't think dwarf shrimp do much of a damage to it as amanos do.

Clado is very rough and has a darker...

Hydra can only hurt very small creatures. If you don't intend to breed shrimp or fish with tiny fry in the tank, they're "harmless". With your list, you should be fine ignoring them.

I understand the active ingredient, chitin. It's a stimulation but at the same time, it's not exactly a guarantee and is rather a hit or miss.
