    So I accidentally started a 30gal planted tank a few months ago while trying to grow lotuses, and it's turned into somewhat of a shrimp-and-tetra paradise. Today when gazing upon the accidental fruit of my labors, I noticed my largest Amano shrimp fanning its underbelly- and spotted clusters...

    I'm looking for help in setting up a more efficient operation for breeding crayfish. I've bred Procambarus clarkii (both blues and whites) successfully, but losses tend to be high due to cannibalism even when providing plenty of hiding places. I've come across this "condo" system (as the creator...

    I bought ten Otocinclus affinis for my 75 a couple of months ago, and they totally cleaned it up of algae. I lost one recently and was worried about starvation, so I put three of them in my 38 two weeks ago. The tank has a bunch of vals, crypts, naja, wisteria, and a very "healthy" coating of...

    My albino cory eggs just hatched....all one billion of them. Do albino corys always breed true if you breed albino to albino? Just wondering since they're all very transparent. I wasn't sure if they're just that clear because they just hatched or because they're albino.

    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of a black rili shrimp? I've been looking all over the net and the closest I've found were full blue rili shrimp.
