  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    We have a well-established tank, heavily planted, with many tree limbs and rocks for hiding spaces. We added 3 Amano shrimp to the tank. 2 died in the first week because they kept climbing into the intake. Now the 3rd keeps "sleeping" inside the pump nozzle. How they get in is beyond me since...
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    After seeing clean nice planted 1 gal picos, wanted to try it myself, missing obvious points: they had no heater and no source of water movement. Now I have plants in 18x6x7 in. rimmed rectangular tank, 25W adjustable Theo heather and smallest Tom Dive Clean Mini Internal Filter, 48 gph...

    A long long while back i use to have a huge school of pygmy cories that would always swim around the tank and were quite bold. normally swimming in teams of 3-4 all around the tank. then the number decreased and i hadnt seen them so often. Later on i added a circulation pump and started my...
  4. Fish
    I recently purchased 15 new fish for my 20 gallon aquarium, 4 boraras maculatus, and 11 boraras uropthalmoides. These fish looked great, and settled down quite well, but I quickly noticed a change. Initially, both the boraras uropthalmoides and the boraras maculatus seemed like very happy...

  7. Fish
    so i have 2 ottos and they used to be out all the time swimming around, sucking onto stuff, or just hanging out on some flat rocks. now they hide in a cave most of the time and i only see one out at a time (rarely) except when i first turn on the lights and one/both of them spazzes around and...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I purchased some new crystal red shrimp today from my lfs. I brought them home and acclimatized them, and they've been in my tank for about an hour now. They are all hiding under the driftwood, and won't come out and start doing their shrimpy thing. I'm excited to see them so I keep looking at...

  11. Plants
    What are the best plants for saving Guppy fry? The tank is a 10g with 20 watts of CF light. It already has Java Moss, Duckweed, and Salvinia minima, but there still isn't enough cover. What else could I add?
