Ibn, John, what other fish are you keeping in your tank with the shrimp? I'd really like to get some shirimp, but i'm sure I'd have to ditch the gouramis and probably the red tailed shark first.

I have the opposite problem. I just ordered some dwarf sag hoping that it would be about 6" tall. Unfortunately it's small and compact and not looking much different than my E. tenellus.

Geckos are typically desert animals and won't do well in a high humidity tank. They can't swim. Newts typically like a cool tank, about 68-70 degrees F. ADF's are cool, but I'm not sure how well...

Be careful what you wish for. It's impossible to get this sh*t out of my tanks. All it takes is 1 piece and the surface of your tank will be covered in a month.

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. I've heard that machineable brass also contains free lead. I doubt a few screws would actually cause problems though.

If I catch any little moth/fly/mosquito around the house it goes into the tank. My gouramis love it. However, you may want to be concerned about any pesticides wild bugs may carry into the tank.

Some sponge filters are powered by powerheads and don't require an air pump. IMHO these are probably superior in terms of minimizing surface agitation to the AC mini.

I've upgraded a 15 watt striplight to 2x13 watt CF. It works great and probably has 4x the intensity of a 15 watt NO.

Measure your pH (morning before lights come on and evening just before lights out), Ammonia, Nitrite. If those values don't look suspicious it's probably something biological.

There is often a correlation between KH and pH. The higher the KH, the higher the pH (barring other pH modifiers like CO2 or buffering additives).

The African Clawed Frog will eat your neons just as soon as he's large enough. You could kee African Dwarf Frogs in there without any problem though.

anubias nana

All of these are great choices for a 20 gallon tall. I don't have much experience with the others.
