  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey all, I’ve been meaning to start culturing some brine shrimp (never have before) and I just have some general questions. 1-is it more price efficient to hatch them instead of just buying them? 2-I plan to use a simple diy setup with some plastic bottles and an air pump shooting through the...

    I recently bought a 75g tank that is drilled in the bottom right corner. I was kind of dreading putting in a big ugly overflow box, I always thought they were ugly. So Ive been trying to think of ways to make something that is minimally invasive and not too hard to do. I came up with this idea...

    I have a 7 foot long 265 gallon saltwater fish only tank and I am having a huge issue with having deadzones in the corners of the tank. I have nothing but fish in this tank such as a puffer fish, queen trigger, banana eel, picasso, clown trigger, soho tang, and more. The issue is that any time...

    I have just received a secondhand piece of bogwood. It came from the same tank as some fish that I'm about to place into my tank. Do I need to treat it or wash it in a special way before placing it in my tank?

    I have a decent-sized cow vertebra, about 4" long, which I was thinking would look cool in a tank. As I recall, it spent awhile in a field with other bones, then was boiled to clean it, then sat in a wheelbarrow for awhile before I bought it and soaked it in a bucket of water for two weeks. How...

    The new tank i got has some major fogging on the front glass panel, and it makes it look like the water is not clear at all. I tried soaking it with vinegar/baking soda overnight, tried a razor, some highly acidic bathroom cleaner, and scrubbing REALLY hard but to no avail. The whole window...
