    Hi I have several ricefish with eggs hanging off their body. All throughout the day they stay there and don't get deposited on my plants. I have a heavily planted tank so lack of plants is not an issue. I thought they lay their eggs in the mornings? What's going on here?

    Hi everyone I’ve got a group of these and I was wondering if anyone else has any blue fin tipped males? I’ve noticed 1 out of my 3 fully developed males has stunning turquoise/light blue tipped pectoral fins when ur catches the light. but my other males have a much yellower colour, could the...

    Hi, I’m relatively new to the shrimp-keeping hobby, so I’m definitely inexperienced. I have an 8.75 G planted tank with 9 Bloody Mary shrimp, 3 Mystery Snails, and a LOT of pest snails (which I don’t mind). I’ve had the tank for about 4 months and have had the shrimp for around 3, and I saw one...

    Hi, Is the Snowball shrimp line stable enough that there are never or very rarely any throw backs to the wild form? I don't mind shades of white or opacity. I just don't want to need a cull tank for wild-looking shrimplets. Anyone with any experience in keeping a snowball colony going--can...

    I have quite a few blue velvets, and I've noticed that in all of the pictures of small aquarium shrimp that I've seen, I've never actually seen a purple variation. I know the basics of color say that red and blue make purple, but I also know that red cherry shrimp and blue velvet will make...

    Hello wonderful people! Anyone who has kept multiple African Dwarf Frogs will probably understand the annoyance that is sexing them. I tried and tried to find mature frogs, but every store, online and in-person, sold them as babies, meaning I couldn't sex them until AFTER I bought them and had...

    Does anyone know if you can breed an Orange shrimp with a Green Jade? I also have a Black Rose, didn't know if that could also be a candidate. I haven't been able to find much information on the cross-breed, or even if anyone has done it. I know the Green Jade shrimp originally came from Orange...

    I'm working to stock a 29g planted community tank and have been contemplating adding shrimp for a while now. Currently, there are aout 15 MTS, a bunch of ramshorn and bladder snails, 2 nerites, a mystery snail, a school or corys (6), and a school of lambchop rasboras (8). The plants...

    I have an odd question for you guys. So, I have a 150 gallon axolotl tank with a matching sump (it was originally a reef tank, so it's got all the bells and whistles). I would like to breed crystal red and dream blue shrimp as food/also display animals in other areas. Obviously a breeding colony...

    I noticed the angels were super aggressive last night. Found these little guys today. I never had any intention on breeding, but while keeping the eggs/fry to term isn't a priority, I'm also not interested in going out of my way to destroy them. Getting another tank is out of the question...

    I've had ghost shrimp reproduce in my tanks before, but have never noticed this... My females appear to be producing the little green eggs where I would think their brains would be. Is this how their egg production starts? Anyone with more experience breeding shrimp, please advise.

    Hello, about a week ago I added a male pearl gourami to the tank of my female and for some reason did not consider they would breed. Now, she is gravid, and I don't have the accommodations to care for the fry. If I remove her from the tank, will she reabsorb the eggs? Would a local chain store...

    Hi, I just wanted to tell you guys a weird story that happened many years ago. We had a few serpae tetras, one of which kept getting fatter. Instead of laying eggs, one day the tetra was dead, the belly ripped open, and 1 baby fish was swimming around. Perhaps a cm long. No eggs, no other...

    Quick question, do apistogrammas gain more color/patterning with age? I ordered a young pair of triple reds and am wondering if the male will gain more coloring and patterning as he matures. They are a little over an inch right now, here's some photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/dBv3enRzhUwh8AqC7...

    Hi, So my Amano gave birth to one zillion healthy looking larvae. I need to transfer them to brackish water, but I have no idea how to make those water. I read that salinity of anywhere between 20-32 is OK. But can I just take tap\RO water and add table salt? epsom salt? or do I need to buy a...

    Hello, I have guppies and one in particular is huge and she's been this way for months. Is there a way to know exactly when she's about to have the fry? Or is there a way to somehow induce this poor fish? Thanks!

    Hey there! I have a 10 gal betta tank and picked up 2 ghost shrimp today when I bought a new aquarium plant. When I got home I realized that one of the shrimp is definitely a female with eggs. I have no experience, or desire really, to raise a batch of baby ghost shrimp and will be gone in 3...

    Are there any shrimp anyone would recommend to put in a planted tank that already has cherry's in them?

    Hey guys, can you put a pair of apistos and a pair of rams in the same tank? Would they be able to breed? Thanks!:smile2:
