1/2 inch sounds a little too large for a ramshorn snail batch to me. Mine are never larger than 3 to 4 mm in diameter. Could it be frog eggs?...

For your tetras and corys nothing beats live food. I culture grindal worms for adults and microworms for fry and all my small fish go crazy over them. Shelled green crushed peas are also good for...

I don't know about the weather in Australia but fancy goldfish are not as hardy as comets or commons. I could not keep a fancy goldfish outside and I live in GA.

No it is not normal. I doubt it had to do with molting though so since it appears the female lived at least 3 more weeks afterward since there are now tiny shrimplets in the tank. This would mean she...
