Oh, ick. Those are planaria? If so, I've heard good things about a product "No-Planaria" for shrimp tanks. Have some but have not used it, myself.

I am also confused on this point.

At one time, I bought "dwarf" water lettuce and have propagated it to several of my tanks.

In my open-top tanks, I still have only "dwarf" water lettuce. The...

Same thing happened to me with one single, big tiger nerite. I moved it between several of my tanks in various states of "maturity", algae content, etc. Eventually (after some months) it succeeded in...

I got home today to check on my berried Malawa shrimp, but one of them wasn't berried anymore. Shrimplets!

I've never had shrimp in a bare tank before to see the size of the shrimplets. Man,...

If you're talking about the free-swimming, squiggly little white nematodes, I usually start a new tank off with some hungry livebearers to eat weird bugs like this (guppy culls are my choice du...

Plans for more half-cubes?

Hello!

I was wondering if there were any plans in the works for more sizes of the half-height cubes. I like the look of the MA-615, but having base dimensions of the MA-305 or MA-465 cube would...

I typically rinse my hands prior to working on my tanks, then rinse some more between tanks, but don't actually wash with soap until I'm done working on them for the day. I only use gloves when I...

Wow! I've never kept tiger shrimp so I can't say I know what their arms look like, but the behavior does look exactly like a bamboo shrimp feeding. Definitely doesn't look like a bamboo shrimp,...

Does the tank get direct sunlight? Sunlight is very strong compared to any artificial lighting you would use for a tank, so it will grow algae pretty easily. Also, you'd want to check how hot the...

From what I can tell, looks a lot like the cyano I got in some of my tanks. It does come off easy, kind of in sheets, but it also regrows easy too.

I tore down one small tank due to cyano, but I'm...

Rimless tanks do bow some. Glass is not perfectly rigid. In fact, completely rigid glass would be quite brittle and would be in more danger of breaking from the pressure. Tanks are made with either...

I like the lighting they provide, but the suction cup on mine is utterly worthless. I have to zip tie it whenever I want to mount it somewhere.

I got this same rack (36"x18"x72") from Lowes last week, just on a whim. I swapped out the particle board with some 3/4" plywood, which gives me a lot of peace-of-mind.

I rubberband a couple of folds of window screening to the fixture when I need to lower the light. Got a bunch of Finnex and I know of no other way that they can be dimmed.
