I think guppies will eat them. Also I've heard that really limiting feeding and using something like a feeding dish so that excess food doesn't drop into the substrate can help.

Update? This tank looked great. I am working on my new (well newly setup) Ebi and this was great inspiration, I'd love to see how it looks now.

Hmm thanks for the suggestions all. Ended up pulling the trigger on the Purigen since the clear water thing sounds pretty great and it was inexpensive. Glad to hear the opinion on the Lav, I think...

Oh yeah I guess I should have mentioned. It's pretty heavily planted, very low bioload right now (4 fish, a few shrimp).

What you've said makes sense about mechanical filtration only (and you...

Eheim Filter substrate suggestions

So I have an Eheim 2217 on my 46G. I've not had any issues with it but since I'm clumsy I have managed to spill the SubstratPro bio-filter media (that came with the filter originally) a few times and...

I ended up buying the Fluval Ebi for anyone who's on the search. My LFS discounted it to close to what I was finding online (~$85) so I just bought it. It's the right size, looks well-made and I like...

I had to jump on to comment. Loving your pics and your shrimp. I'm jealous of both.

Rider, thanks for the suggestion! I just google the Eheim Aquastyle 4 and it's beautiful and, since it's rimless and very clean-looking, would be a great fit. But you're right that it's $175 on ebay,...

Recs for a nano shrimp tank

Hey guys,

I just redecorated my room and I have a nightstand next to my bed that I'd like to put a small nano tank on. I have other tanks around the house that I've used various components to put...

Color tone of the images makes it difficult to tell but I'd say mordalphus is on the money. Chocolate or Blueberry.
