  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I first joined plantedtank in order to post about seed shrimp in my 45p with no luck getting a response. Here we go again! A year after my first experience with a seed shrimp explosion in my 45p, the only solution I found was getting a dwarf gourami to nip the problem in the butt, and it...

    I currently have three tanks. One Aqueon Shrimp tank with yellow shrimp and a couple of nerite snails, one Fluval EBI Shrimp tank with a couple of nerite snails, and a 8 gallon tank I'm using as a medical tank for new plants before planting them into the other tanks Currently, the Aqueon and...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Started a new tank last week, I bought some new plants and moved some plants from another tank (which has ramshorn snails). Can anyone tell if these snails are pest snails or ramshorn snails, I've heard something about them being pest snails if they're leaning?:|

    Help! Observed this thing on my sponge filter in my Red Cherry Shrimp tank. I have never seen this before and wonder what in the hell it is? It may have hitched a ride on some moss and Java Fern I got from an outside source - it does move when shrimp touch it. It is the best picture I was able...

Attached the photo of the same here in the post. Can find it on the tiger lotus leaf, small white dots. They do swim well. Any help in identifying...

    So I was moving moss from my tank into a bowl to grow, and noticed a brown bug about 1 inch long very thin with what looked like a fish tail and 4 legs stuck on one of the dwarf sag leaves any ideas? I'm getting pictures and posting shortly

    Here are a few pictures to illustrate my simple pest trap. This is essentially the same as a bottle trap many use to capture thier fish, just micro. :proud: You can contact your local veterinarian about the vacutainer. Be sure to mention what it is for and I am sure any animal loving vet tech...
