Tank seems to be getting along fine, but I am unexpectedly having to move soon. If anyone in the Boston area is interested, I'm looking to sell the entire setup.

I've seen videos of yellow cherry shrimp getting attacked and eaten by ghost shrimp. Really they were just the astronauts to test life in the tank. They've all died now, though whether this is from...

I realized when I got my order of plants that maybe the swords were a little funny with a bunch of crypts, but I'm more of the mindset to just let them do their thing once they're planted. I'm not...

Thanks for the tip on the filter, looks like an interesting choice. The reviews make it seem like it's completely silent, which would be a huge plus. There's an internal filter that comes with a...

I have a glass lid and a light strip. I like those kind of plants, Raymond, so I might get some. Floating sounds good, but would it be stupid to plant some in the gravel for decoration? I like the...

That's actually a good idea, I do water changes every week (roughly) because of the brown water and for the shrimp. I'll cut those out and maybe just resort to top-offs.
