  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi - just got some blue cherry shrimp from LFS. Tested the water, the levels were very similar to mine (they're less than a mile away). I drip acclimated for an hour and a half, then put them in. They were swimming some upside down here and there, and now they're all piled on top of each other...

    Overview In a few weeks, I will be conducting an experiment using fish in one of my science classes. Fish will be placed in a maze similar to the one in this video () from Princeton University. They will be previously trained to food at the end of the maze except the barriers will not be in...

    Hi guys, I am looking for help in sexing the Bolivian rams, which i'd believe are a male and a female. The "male" is larger, has brighter colors and longer tail fins, compared to the "female". However looking at the vents (?) they both look about the same to me, and I wonder if I actually...

    I recently added RCS and some dwarf corydoras to a 20g. Over the past few days I've noticed one shrimp in particular sneaking up on resting cories and flipping them over, has anyone else experienced this? It doesn't seem to happen too often. Should I be worried?

    Hey everyone, I have a 38 gallon heavily planted tank with driftwood, the whole shabang. It’s been running for several years and about a month ago I got some Bolivian rams. I got a male and female (I checked their vent’s before buying them). The male chases the female around the tank. The...

    Has anyone else noticed this? If you catch a fish in a net, then try to release it, the fish will keep swimming towards the inside of the net. Usually you have to swish the net around to get them to swim out, but sometimes they'll swim right back in! I've been watching some videos on the...

    Having a problem with my Bolivian rams. Lately the male has been hiding (because he was being picked on), but now both rams are laying on the bottom of the tank (they are still upright, not on their sides). When the corys bonk into them, they don't even move. When they swim, it looks very jerky...

    I have a healthy bristlenose catfish that, ever since i put in eco complete, has been digging like never before. It's causing large mountains of substrate and plants to be lifted daily. Is there anything I can do? It's concerning because I want my new plants to root and grow. Will he settle down...

    I bought 6 Inpaichthys kerri tetras last Friday and they have been in a 10 gallon bare-bottomed quarantine tank until they clear to go into my 40B. I have three males and three females and have been dosing 5ml of Melafix daily to ease stress and prevent some rubbed noses (I think from rough...

    What is the most interesting fish you have ever kept? I don't care if it's the plainest looking thing - I just want to hear about it's "personality!" I've just recently started keeping female betta in a sorority and have really enjoyed watching them! One girl seems to get excited when she sees...

    I call this fish a Termite fish. all my reading states that these fish eat wood and are scardy cats. I've had my fish for about 3 weeks now. He is about 1.5 inches. Up untl today I could find 'Clowny" stuck on glass between the water heater and tank. He stayed with-in a 5 inch segment. Over...

    Today I was just thinking to myself about which fish Ive enjoyed the most and it occurred to me that it wasn't necessarily the most beautiful fish but instead the fish with the most personality and interesting behavior! (Not to say that beauty and interesting behavior are mutually exclusive...

    so i've had these fish for about a month and a half, and i've found them to be quite charming fish. however recently, i've noticed some interesting behaviors exhibited towards intraspecifics. there's a lot of strutting and sometimes nipping between individuals, and sometimes while doing this...
  15. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I was just wondering if anybody knows a technique to stop fish from running to the front of the aquarium whenever I'm near expecting food. Thanks!
