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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
temp: constant 75.6
Shrimp arrived yesterday, all in good...
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...
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...
Thought I would start up a site for my Tank:
(I know it's a little overstocked, but changing water x2/wk.) Fluval Flora 7.9 Gallon
(wet start 10/24/14)
4–Nerite snails (2): Neritana natalensis “Zebra”...
I am looking to buy 8-10 good sized amano shrimp (they have to be big enough my medium-sized GBR's think they cannot eat them). My water params are ph: 6.7, KH: 6 GH:6. Shipping is to Florida, send me a message if you have some available! Thanks!
Finally found some Amano shrimp. got some yesterday found one had molted today. so now have RCSin one tank and Amanos in another.. thing s sure have changed in the hobby. so much more fun now..lol..
any advice on amano shrimp is welcome
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...
It's been running for a few weeks now.
