  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi Everyone, I have been battling a planaria infestation in my tank for quite a while now and I am going the fenbendazole route to hopefully get rid of them. I have moved my nerite snails to another planted tank as I have been using Planaria Zero to treat the planaria infestation (without much...

    I have a 25ltr tank (5.5gal) that will house a betta. I let the tank cycle for 1 month and after everything was set, I got 3 Black choco Shrimp & 4 Red Cherry Shrimp. They've been in the tank for exactly one week and are doing great (cleaning my plants from algae, swimming around, molting...
  7. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So I was playing around with the AqAdvisor stocking calculator and found it says each of my tanks is overstocked. Some of the calculations seemed buggy (such as changing, or putting out the wrong percentage in the generated image) but I want to be sure I'm not actually overstocking my tanks...

    Hi, today I realized that one of my 2 zebra nerite snails was lying still on it's back (with open side upwards and shell side downwards). I am not sure if it is dead. I took it out and smelt, and I could not smell anything at all. But it could be that it was not smelling because it was dead for...

    My nerite has been slow to move but has been moving. It's trapdoor will cloise but it tends to be slow. Now it's up against the glass and slowing moving its body back and forth. What is going on?? I only just got him like last weekend. I have video of it moving but I'm waiting for it to...

    In my 20 G long I keep finding my two nerites upside down on the bottom. The first time I was afraid they were sick and put them in a holding tank for a couple months but there was nothing wrong with them. They're back in the 20 G long but it continues to happen, every other day I'll find one...

    Hello all! I am doubtful that I will get a quick response to this question, but here goes! I have concluded my dosing of No Planaria in both of my shrimp only planted tanks to eliminate Vorticella. It has been one week since I began treatment, and I dosed an extra three days, so six days total...

    Hi! I have a mystery on my hands, or rather, in my tank... (Freshwater 3gal planted shrimp/snail tank with Yellow Sakura Shrimp and Nerite snails and a few mosquito rasboras.) So, I have not added new plants or hardscape items to this tank in over a year. I have not added livestock in about 4...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I thought a few people might be interested in my little adventure today. First, a little backstory. I've had my 10g and my 5.5g running for over a year now and due to extremely high nitrates in my tap water I ran into an issue with dead bettas and cyanobacteria. I sold off the neons I had and...
  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have s 2.5g, probably only around 2g with with filter and heater. I was wondering what I could stock in this, I can't work out why, but cherry shrimps were a no go, they would last a few months and then die. I currently have a zebra nerite snail (Errol) who is living happily. I wondered...
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Last week picked up a Zebra Nerite snail. He doesn't move around at all during the day except if I do a water change and he's up near the surface. That being said he is in a different spot each morning when I come into work. My problem is that I still have diatoms in my tank one week later...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Nerite Snails are one of the best algae eaters for me. I have 8 of them in my 20 gallon planted tank. My Aunty caught them from their province and gave some to me as she sell them online. I see them crawl all over my tank eating green and brown algae, leftover fishfoods like sinking pellets and...
