brackish water tanks

  1. WTB/RAOK
    I'd like about 7-8 HRS, some juvies preferred with a mix of colors from red to coral to transluscent. If bred in continental US, even better. If anyone wants to reduce their colonies by a bit, please PM me with prices and shipping costs. Thanks! Koi
  2. Aquascaping
    I am thinking of starting a project out of the box of normal aquascaping. A 20gal long brackish 1.003-1.004 SG tank with med lighting and you heard me, no substrate. The bottom of the tank will be absolutely littered with tiny and thick sandblasted manzanita and many small stones weighing them...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have preggers Amano and Ghost shrimp and they always have eggs. None of the babies stay alive because I dont have them in brackish water. I am wonder what type of salt to use to make the water brackish? Aquarium salt, marine salt, table salt?

  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    My 5/8" red claw crab molted today. Seems to have gone well in under an hour and no missing limbs. She did it on top of part of her temporary perch in one inch of water. (Her old perch leached so many tannins she got afraid to go into the water so I got rid of it and most of the tannins.) The...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a 5/8" red claw crab that I have had for 3 weeks. I've had a lot of tannin issues, which scared the beejesus out of it bc of the color (can't see predators?) that has been getting cleared up. On Sat. I removed the offending mopani wood "tree" that she had been using as a perch and put...
  7. Aquascaping
