    So this is my first time ever raising baby fry. I'm looking for any advice to help these guys make it. The picture above is my setup for them. I have made slight changes since the picture. I have dug the dishes in to the sand to make it easier for the fry to get to food. The bowl on right had...

    Hi all! I’m new here and need some advice. I keep Blue Dream shrimp. I recently purchased a few new ones and when I got home I discovered that I got 3 berries females.

We turned the filter down all the way, because we had to go to lunch, and when we came back, we netted...

    I have a breeding colony of about 15 yellow shrimp. I've only had them for a week or so and already several females are berried. I want to add a few snails to eat some algae, and because I like how they look. Does anyone know if the snails are any danger to baby shrimp? It seems like it...

    I have a 120g planted tank and have noticed one of my amano carraying a large egg pouch. I am guessing any day now. I would like to try to raise them. I dont see much on here. I was thinking about setting up a 10g tank with salt at 1.030. What about light, nutritrion, water changes, filter? Is...
