  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    When I turned my fish tank lights on this morning I saw one of my amino shrimp dead. It had a yellow ish dot on it like the one in the picture (which is still alive.) All of my other 6 amano shrimp are fine. I did a 20% water change on the thursday, so 2 days ago now. Is the dot a sign of some...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I did a large water change the other day, ~60% and noticed both RCS and Amanos went into hiding afterwards. I don't see any dead ones, ammonia spike, or empty shells. I still see some hanging around and eating and they seem to be increasingly back in view now two days later. I'm making other...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I introduced 20 RCS and 10 Amano to a new 50G yesterday. I have kept RCS for many years but first experience with Amano. At first they swam all over the place exploring and foraging. I noticed at lights off last night some of Amanos were hanging out on the suction cups on my heaters and other...
  4. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So I just got 4 baby ADFs (African Dwarf Frogs, NOT CLAWED) in my planted 15g, and I can already tell that feeding them is going to cause some mess -- I'm using frozen blood worm cubes, and those get everywhere. I don't want to have to pick individual worms out of the substrate/gravel vacuum...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all. So i got my amano shrimp over the last week. there are 5 in my 5 gallon tank. I cam home to see one amano swimming at the top of the tank in circles. He did a couple laps and now is on the substrate and isn't moving much. He's turned kinda reddish, a deeper color than I've seen any...
  6. Algae
    I have a 20 gallon planted tank that has recently finished cycling. The tank is lit 10 hours a day by 34 watts of LED lighting, is kept at 78 degrees and has a neutral pH. Unfortunately, a bunch of thread algae has started to take over and I'm worried it will inhibit my plant growth. I was...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have 1 Amano Shrimp that is about 3 inches. He is not very active at all and mostly stationary. Am I safe to assume that he reached the end of his life span? I understand that some shrimps are afraid of some fishes but I have 6 neon tetras that are half of his size...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So this is my first venture into the shrimp keeping hobby. I did loads of research, got all my supplies, let my tank cycle for 4 months, etc. Here's the parameters: 10g planted tank ammonia: 0 nitrite: 0 nitrate: 0 TDS: 213 GH: 7 KH: 4 temp: constant 75.6 Shrimp arrived yesterday, all in good...
  9. Plants
    This week I added a bunch of red root floaters to my two nano tanks. One has a DYI sponge filter set on low where a few bubbles come out every few seconds. The other has nothing and is basically just a place where I'm growing out some plants I haven't decided what to do with. The plants in both...

  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've seen some mixed reviews on this topic, and I wondered if anyone currently has the two and would be willing to share their experiences. Alternatively if you HAD them together and no longer do. My aquarium is a 5g low-tech medium planted. I have three assassin snails right now, and that's...

  18. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So. I've never had much luck with Amanos in the past. Something was in the substrate that kept killing them off. Couldn't get a grip on what it was. They would always mass die off the day after I acclimated them (drip, plop and drop, tried different types of acclimating). I've re-done my tank...
