  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I accidentally started a 30gal planted tank a few months ago while trying to grow lotuses, and it's turned into somewhat of a shrimp-and-tetra paradise. Today when gazing upon the accidental fruit of my labors, I noticed my largest Amano shrimp fanning its underbelly- and spotted clusters...
  2. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hello all. My name is Kryssie. I’m a 33 year old lady from north Texas. I am a wife, mother, and veteran.
