It looks like a leaf roller caterpillar that I see in my outdoor garden that wraps itself in the plant leaves, whilst it munches away. I have never seen anything like that in my aquariums, though. ...

Since the bacopa has only been in the tank for two days, it is very early to judge whether or not it will do well. I would give it two weeks before making a judgment. If it were my tank, I would...

I would give them two more weeks in quarantine just to be on the safe side. However, sometimes fish just die. I was looking at one of my tanks one day, and an angel fish was swimming and then just...

I would try it. I find a lot of times, it is trial and error. Try it for two weeks and see how the plants respond and if the fish behaviour improves.

As the previous poster asked, do you mix the RO water with tap or amend it with anything? Also, what fertilizers do you dose and how much? Is the GDA only on the rock and not on the plants?

You can lower the nitrate level by doing a large water change. How often do you do water changes, and how much at a time? Also, do you dose KH2P04 (phosphate)?

I like your idea of setting up the 29 gallon and keeping the 10 gallon as a shrimp only tank. It is nice to observe the shrimp in their own tank. I find my 10 gallon shrimp tank very relaxing and...
