    Is it safe? I also have some Inca snails and large fancy goldfish in the same tank. They do not pick up and spit out the current gravel like past ones I had, but I imagine they will pick up some when feeding. Will this sand harm them in any way or is it safe. When I searched this question...

    I got a batch of Crystal Black Shrimp for my heavily planted nano tank after it had been cycled and the water parameters were perfect. The shrimp did great for over a week as I was slowly introducing fertelizers. Seachem Iron, Potassium and Flourish didn't seem to bother them at all. This...

    wanted to play around with the theme of light and dark for this next piece. so i selected plants that would create an intense dark green background along with other plants that would "pop". so far i am pleased with the effect, but time will tell once when everything starts to grow in full force...

    I have a number of CBS in the SS to SSS range available for purchase. These are all right at the 1/2" to 3/4" size range. They have come out of healthy SSS parent stock. I do get a few SS-SSS CRS out of the parents from time to time, so they are not going to be PBL, but then they are not...

    Greetings! I am searching for a source of live Tubifex worms. It would be good if it were local - I'm in Orlando, FL, but if a mail delivery is the way to go, I'd prefer a source on this side of the country to cut down on delivery time. Many thanks for this information!

    While re-siliconing my 25Gal recently I cracked the top black rim/brace while attempting to get it out for the project. Its cracked towards one of the corners and now I am worried about the integrity of the tank. I read in a few other threads that braceless might work in some instances - however...
