  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hi everyone. I need some advice to get my plants to that lush green you see in aquascaping photos. I have a 55gal (48"x12"x22") with 1 planted+ light, which I've recently stopped using the 24/7 cycle and gone to on/off settings to get my algae to die off. Anyhow, I'm seeking to solve 2 related...
  2. Algae
    Would love to know what I am dealing with before it becomes a real problem. I have a weird, almost jelly-like(?) green algae that is starting to show up in my HC carpet. As you will hopefully see in the pics, it isn't hair algae... but some sort of amorphous green fuzz filled with little...

    Admittedly, I haven't seen this atrocity in person yet, as my tank is being "taken care of" by my brother and the tank is located an hour away from where I live at his house. Just today I get a text that reads: "The tank is green". :crying: I recently had to move it from upstairs to downstairs...

    This has been very slow growing algae, been in here a couple months now. I find it somewhat attractive. My shrimp and fry like to hang out in it sometimes. My research indicates it might be Cladophora algae which may be the same type as those Marimo balls (I had one once, maybe it came from...

    I just received a few golfballs of taiwan moss, but it's all pretty dark green. Some strands are greyish brown. How do I get it to become a brighter green, and how long will it take? Also, are the greyish brown strands 100% dead, or is that capable of reviving?

    I apologize for the picture quality, I will take a better picture later. There are two kinds of plant in the picture that I have found depicted in Myriophyllum matogrossense green profiles. The "leaf" is "flat". The one on the right with a yellow arrow is the plant I have found more often...

  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am interest raising yellow and dark green (india) shrimp colonies. Regarding yellow shrimps, I have noticed that the shades/intensity of yellow varies a lot from various pictures that I have seen. To achieve a intense yellow colony, do I need to cull the lighter colored yellow shrimps and...
