I had wordpress'd in the past. Recently switched to square space. Affordable and clean. WP is still a good option though.

I sometimes shrimp or use Oto for diatoms. Part of new tank syndrome and it will pass. I also see it in my aging tanks (partially neglected) with MTS and old wood and old substrate from biological...

My first thought is anaerobic or microphilic bacteria, not mold, likely the infamous BGA (blue-green "algae"). I have not successfully slain this beast without dismantling my tank or going dark for 3...

UPDATE:

Crabs seem happy and are growing, scavenging and eating. They receive plenty of dry time and are even performing their mating dance. Though it will not lead to anything without any females...

UPDATE:

They seem do be doing well. Active, and at all levels of the tank. They devoured the black worms I introduced to them. I caught the biggest of the 3 contemplating an escape. He had 3 limbs...

I do have a few powerheads laying around. But I'm using a 300-400 GPH canister and 25-50% flow at most. So there is plenty of potential. I will have to try and mess with it.

As far as the intake....

My experience: anything larger than 1.5 inches will take down a shrimp. Your best bet is tank 2 with the guppies. They are most likely farm raised on flake or pellet and do not have a taste for...

Yeah the one in question seems to be a female. Notice the lack of "spike" at the front compared to the photo of the Gold ram you posted? The gold ram would be a male.

Consistent water changes is what it comes down too. I have used siesta photoperiods for up to 3 hours and still see algae IF you do not do your weekly water changes. Even 10% is better than doing...

I'm by no means an expert, but I'd agree. Typically males have stronger coloration and more elaborate fins. So that one we see the tail end looks a bit male. The top left GGR is a male. I cant see...

As requested, I snapped a few with the phone - apologies for the terrible quality. They appear to be doing well foraging. May tempt them with some black worms. No escapees. I did re-position some of...

That is a nice little setup and good manzanita. Start sinking it now! Took me 3 weeks for mine, but they were large pieces. I think your smaller ones may take a week or two to soak and sink.
