Tank size: Cube Garden Mini M (20 liters)
Active substrate, CO2 (indicator is bright green and it's set to 30ppm), light at around 40 lumens per liter.
NO3, NO2, and ammonia all read at 0. (I can get more tests after Christmas if you need more info).
Now some history:
I've been doing...
Hello everyone, i recently got a 22liter aquarium and got a few neocaridina shrimp on it. I ordered 6 but got actually 8, 6 adults and 2 little babies, because of the babies i installed a sponge filter... I have the aquarium next to my bed so noise is a problem. So instead of getting an air pump...
the tank I plan on putting them in has lots of plants, 3 nerites and an amano shrimp. Ideally the fish would be perfectly docile with these guys.
I should note that maybe around 1.5 to 2 gallons of the tank is gravel/hardscape.
currently my tank is heated at around 80F, and has plants that...
Day 0: A New Adventure Begins!
Today I filled my 20 L / 5 g tank for the first time. I visited my local stores and purchased some plants:
Micranthemum umbrosum Monte Carlo (tissue culture pot)
Anubias spp. (x2)
Süßwassertang (1 pot)
Stem plant ... Elodea (Egeria densa) (1 x bunch of stems)...
So I have this 5.5g (21 L) planted nano tank that i am currently cycling and i wanted to ask what fish i could add to it once it's fully cycled. I'm looking for suggestions other than betta fish, shrimp and snails as i am not really interested in them. I have hard water with a neutral pH and...
I have a 10 gallon planted tank with 20+ cherry shrimps but they're so small that it looks empty so I want to get them some company. I like bettas but I've heard that they eat shrimp so what suggestions are there for shrimp companions?
I have a 2.5g nano shrimp tank which I was having a lot of trouble with (4 out of 15 died) and the shrimp always hang out at the top of the tank. I was told this may be an oxygen issue, and to me this did not seem unlikely, so I purchased an air stone- however the issue is that it is agitating...
Hi all, I’m fairly new to fish-keeping, and brand new to shrimp keeping, and I’m experiencing some problems with my brand new cherry shrimp in a 2.5g planted bowl. Please read my post, and reply, as any advice would be helpful and I’m fairly lost for clues.
Just over a month ago, I acquired a...
This is going to be my first "real" tank. My first tank was a one gallon with plastic tree. The betta fish last as long as you expected in that setting.
I want to do something more right this time, something that doesn't constitute as animal cruelty.
The tank I got is a cylindrical...
I just started this set-up, I have a ultra-small tank (3-4 gallon) for my future betta. Will my tank be okay with no aeration with a CO2 in place? Should I put some aeration to it? It's too small even for a 2-3W filters that are available near me. Should an airstone would suffice?
This is kind of an oddly shaped tank, so I really have no idea how to light it. My plan is to create an iwagumi with an HC Cuba carpet, just to give you an idea of the type of plant I want to grow.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
For some context, I made this tank with aquarium silicone glue and rocks that I found (I made sure they would not alter the PH). It has been running for a little over a month and I added 6 CPDs (celestial pearl danios/galaxy rasboras) last week. One of them had been missing for 3 days, but I...
Just showing off some of my attempts at (relatively) planted tanks. I am very open to suggestions and comments! :)

I had a nano tank open up and decided that I wanted to scape a native US biotope. I have never kept live-bearers and so, given the small size of the tank, I decided to stock it with Least Killifish, Eastern Grass Shrimp, and Ramshorn Snails. After doing a lot of research (sources below), I came...
Hello fellow enthusiasts!!
I currently have a 10 gal nano aquarium that is heavily planted w/ a pressurized co2 system and dosed regularly w liquid fert + root tabs. I wanted help/opinions with my current pro-mode settings. I have been doing so much research on how/what settings to put and why...
I am planning a 10 gallon shrimp tank and have never kept shrimp or a planted aquarium before, so I am looking for help seeing if I have the right idea before I get the stuff to set up the tank and hopefully introduce the shrimp.
I am hoping to house 8 blue velvet shrimp and 5 amano shrimp in...

Hi all, I've been lurking around the forum but decided to join and solicit some advice. I have a 5 gallon planted nano tank that I began in May 2020. It is planted with an anubias, some alternanthera, bucephalandra, and juncus repens. The tank is taller than wide so those all make it pretty...
