What, precisely, do you mean by iron slag? I wonder if there's something leaching out of it that is more toxic to this species than to the shrimp.

On the other hand, you may simply have received...

In my experience, if it's a plant that will do well in my tank (given lighting, water parameters, etc.), it will root no matter how I plant it.

If it doesn't like the conditions I provide, it...

I have the Fugeray and tried turning on all the lights (blue as well as regular). I had some bout with algae that coincided with that experiment - not conclusive but I didn't see any improvement with...

Looking for plant suggestions for a frog vivarium

I just set up a 10 gallon terrarium for a pacman frog. I have potted spathiphyllum and some selaginella. That's as far as I feel I can really go with taking up floor space. So I'd like to add some...

I'm currently battling some kind of hair/thread algae, but the one I hate most is green spot. I couldn't get it off the glass, so I couldn't see into the tank, and thus my algae problems just...

I've been able to nurse along downoi without carbon dioxide, in low to medium low light. It doesn't grow particularly quickly, but it didn't die, and even had babies.

It's possible that it's a growth (an abnormal one, obviously). It would not necessarily look like the rest of her healthy tissues. It would explain why you couldn't dislodge it. Sometimes masses can...

I've kept a bunch of different crypts in 66 F water; I think you're more likely to run into issues with hard or soft water preferences than temperature. Wendtii in all its flavors is a tough plant,...

That really doesn't make any sense whatsoever. At this point, though, I would suspect the test kits even though they are new. They may have sat around in a warehouse and be older than you think, or...

Nerites are a good idea. You will almost never find a "solution" to controlling diatoms that doesn't involve something that eats them - they simply thrive in certain kinds of water. For example, my...

How long the dirt leaches ammonia is pretty variable - depends on the dirt and plant growth, so not really worth speculating.

That's a neat idea, laying down a dirt substrate to support plants...
