They know it's there, it's not that they can't find it. I can drop a tiny piece of wafer in my 75 (heavily planted) and the bnp search it out and find it quickly. My guess is you're over feeding. If...

I didn't advise anything. I simply stated my experience. I certainly didn't recommend it. In fact I said it was most likely better to do it before, but that the world wouldn't fall out of orbit if...

Dang, that's pretty intense. Certainly seems odd that they would ban by Order rather than by species. Do the articles address why this is? I'm a little busy and don't wanna read the...

In short, I would say no. CO2 is a necessary component to growing plants. All systems need CO2 and without additional supplementation, CO2 seems to be deficient. However, in order to get the...

What type of shrimp? Substrate? What are the water parameters? How long has the tank been set up? If you have a sponge on the intake of the internal filter, then you can rule out that as a problem.
