    Hi there, I keep about 20 shrimp in a 16 gallon planted tank. They graze around all the time, and when I drop in the food I want to give them (Hikari Crab/Calcium pellets/algae wafers) into the feeding dish, only some come over and take a couple of bites now and then... so I don't think every...

    So I just got a bunch of second-hand fish food. Turns out they were expired since 2016! Can I still feed them? They are all dried pellets + dried blood worm. Google says it is okay, only that they may lose some nutritional value....What do you guys think? There is also a can of New Life...

    So while medicating some of my food today I had an interesting idea and cannot seem to find any info on the web. Has anyone tried using Focus to bind Vita-Chem to food? I usually only dose Vita-Chem twice a week but I'm not sure if long term usage of Focus would have a negative impact on the fish.

    Hi. I've got 2 neon blue dwarf gouramis and 5 neon tetras. I currently use a flake food, and had issues with the gourmais eating it all before the tetras even noticed it. I have remedied this by crushing it and soaking it so that it sinks, but I want to get an automatic feeder and this method...

    I purchased 6 juvenile Apistogramma borellii and received them about 2 weeks ago. Of the 6, 5 of them are doing really well. They've put on quite a bit of size and are starting to show some of their blue color. On the other hand, 1 of them isn't doing nearly as well. No noticeable change in...

    Is there such a thing as shrimp food (or perhaps a vegetable?) that doesn't affect water parameters? Whenever I feed my shrimp, I notice a spike in pH. I was hoping to find something that the shrimp would like, but wouldn't affect the water negatively. Thanks peoples!

    I have a few fire eels and I am currently feeding them live ghost shrimp. But for some reason, where I live lfs are not carrying ghost shrimp any more. I do try to breed the ones I have, but I only have enough to feed my axolotls. So basically I wanna change my fire eels diet. Any suggestion?
