    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...

    Hi there, I currently have a 10 gallon planted shrimp tank with about 20 ghost shrimp. Everyone seems to be doing really well and I have been able to breed them and get some babies in a grow out tank right now. I really wanted to get some RCS and move my Ghosties to another tank I have for...

    Long time lurker first time poster, so I apologize in advance if you guys already covered this. I have a 40 gallon tank with about 24 cardinal tetras, a bristle nosed pleco and a betta. Just wondering what's the maximum amount of ghost shrimp and RCS I can have? Once these guys start growing...

    Hi all, just got into planted tanks recently with a friends old marineland 5 gallon hex tank. After an initial round of bad guppies we've hit a nice balanced, vibrant tank that lives atop our desks at grad school. It's been about of month with the current fish and plants and everyone seems...

    Another thing I noticed on my ghost shrimps is their stomach or some organ 'rolling' when the ghost shrimps are feeding. Questions 1. Why does it roll? 2. Are fish pellets good for them? On the first day I've had ghost shrimps (wild, I couldn't get them anywhere else and my fish doesn't eat...

    (is the image showing?) So I saw this weird behaviour on my biggest ghost shrimp a few hours ago. It regurgitated all that food, causing its stomach (I assume) to flatten somehow. When it reurgitated, small pieces of fish pellets kinda 'flew' out and they left a mark on the bottom of the tank...

    I'm sort of new to the aquarium world. Right now I have a betta and a ghost shrimp in a 3 gal tank. I originally had two. One seemed to have leaped out the water and died. I don't know if it was startled or there's something wrong with the water quality. If you have any advice can you help a...

    I have about 25+ ghost shrimp in my tank with 3 otos, I was curious on how to feed all of them and how often? I feed the otos algae pellets when algae thins, and the ghost shrimp hikari crab cuisine pellets. Is it one pellet per shrimp? As I wasn't comfortable with the idea of dumping in 20ish...

    A couple weeks ago I went to New York and left my pregnant ghost shrimp behind in a 5 gallon tank with her other shrimp buddy. When I came back 5 days later, I found little shrimpies darting around my tank. I knew they were close to hatching since I saw their little eyes. Before she gave birth...

    Hey guys, Just curious but under my finnex fugeray my ghost shrimp seems to be milky white. (one seems like its having syptoms being lethargic so dosed IAL and melafix) however the other seems like that only under the bright finnex fugeray. Is this natural? Or is it infected too? Under stock...

    Hey guys! One of my ghost shrimps turned white and I noticed it today. I bought four and 1 of them died (unknown) and this one has turned milky white. Its quite small and doesn't even eat. I was thinking maybe bacterial infection? So I dosed a little bit of melafix and if it dies and I decide to...

    How often do you feed your inverts? I have a 1 gal with 2 adult ramshorns and some babies, of course, and 5 ghost shrimp. It has a few plants that have been in there for almost 1 month now and lots of poo, not for lack of vacuuming with an airline. (How do such tiny animals produce so much...

    I have a 2.5 gallon tank in which I am cultivating hygrophila plants. While at the petstore I saw a lonely Bamboo Shrimp in a tank with only guppies. I know that they need to be in groups but he was alone so i bought him and plan to buy 1 or 2 more as soon as the petstore stocks up. In the...

    I lost faith in my original scape. I think it lacked depth and balance. The fact that most people do that makes me feel less bad haha. This would be day 4 of the new scape. Here's the specs: T8 lightning, currently aprx 1.2 watts per gallon, just had 2 bulbs randomly go out Bell diffused co2...

    Hi, I haven't kept an aquarium in a while, but my bf wanted me to start one so I'm working on this one. I've never made a thread so I hope I uploaded the pictures correctly~ Anyways, wish me luck!:fish::fish::fish: Just a bunch of plants I got at Petsmart (Pico Rivera) and Tongs (Fountain...

    So I changed up my bio-filter from one rated for a 10 gal to one rated for a 20 gal. My tank is 15 gallons w/live plants. I did the change about a week ago, so I know my tank is re-cycling. When I tested my H2O with my API kit, I got a low Ammonia reading of .25ppm, this kind of scared me so I...

    After being in my tank for a week, a platy named Panda, started to school with my H. Rasboras. After another week, she started trying to mate with them, which pissed most of them off (the school). I didn't want to continue to watch my pretty little girl get beat up, so against better judgement...

    I bought some ghost shrimp about a week ago. I saw a berried one in the tank and specifically asked for her, because she was so far along you could see the eyes of the eggs. Anyway I got her home and put her in her own little 2.5 tank, with the reasoning she could have her babies and then I...

    When I got this guy about six weeks ago. He was a translucent grey for a few weeks then after a molt he started to look like this. Is this color normal for a ghost shrimp?
