  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    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?
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Background I am having this 5 gallon tank for around 2 years, heavily planted, no CO2, inert substrate. RCS have been thriving in there, population grew from 10 to over 70. A few fish in there too. Normally I do 20-40% weekly water change and have never missed any. What happened However since...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi everyone, I’m trying to achieve good parameters for my Cherry Shrimp but I am having trouble. My tanks GH is 125.02ppm and the TDS is around 330pmm. Is the GH too low and how would I raise it without further increasing the TDS? Also, is the TDS of 330ppm ok for Cherry shrimp and would it...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi! I'm new to keeping shrimp and I didn't think to test my GH and KH before getting my RCS (everything else was fine as far as I know). My GH is only like 30 ppm and my KH is SUPER high, somewhere between 180 and 240 ppm! 2 weeks ago I bought 4 RCS for my planted 10 gallon, and this week 2 have...

    I started a 1.6g nano tank back in February with subpar LED lighting that came with the kit. After it cycled I upgraded to a proper LED light on a 12/12 schedule and dosed 0.1 mL of Flourish to try and get some horizontal growth for the dwarf baby tears I have planted. Within about 3 days there...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    In the last 2 days I have noticed my red cherry shrimp acting a little strangely - standing still around the tank. When they are active they seem totally normal - busy picking little bits off the plants, swimming around, very enthusiastic about being fed! I did a little research and found a...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    This is my first post on here, but I've learned a ton lurking around already, so let me say thanks for all the help! To start, I have a 20gal tall tank that's been up and running for about 5 months now, ADA amazonia sub, Finnex Planted + 24/7 LED light that I run for 9 hrs/day (only a few hours...

    If my "big" 50 litre planted community tank is considered "nano", then what should I call my "little" 10 litre shrimp tank? Micro? - no wait that's bigger than nano.... Pica? - sounds silly.... So I'm going with the "nano-nano" tank :grin2: Thought I'd jump straight in with a video: Friday...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Dear All, advice please! I have a berried RCS shrimp that is looking rather pale and just wondering if she needs something or if this is normal? She's been carrying eggs for about 2 weeks and seems otherwise completely normal and healthy (out and about, swimming, eating and generally like all...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am new to shrimp keeping and recently got some blue neos, the hobbyist I bought them from called them blue rose because they came from his black rose. I have only had them a few days now but i recently learned about TDS in tanks and got myself a tds meter, it reads my tank at 108 TDS, I have a...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Was hoping someone could help me figure out if I have a chance at breeding them! To the best of my ability, having never actually kept cherries before, I think I have 1 male and 2 females. One of the "females" molted last night, and there's no sign of eggs, so I'm not sure? Thanks! Hope the...

  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a 5 gallon tank with about 60 RCS which I got 10 days ago (mixed juveniles and adults). Also in the tank there are 2 green babaulti and ~10 babaulti babies (one was berried when I got them, been in the tank for about 8 months now). Also there was an amano which I removed 2 days ago...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently added RCS and some dwarf corydoras to a 20g. Over the past few days I've noticed one shrimp in particular sneaking up on resting cories and flipping them over, has anyone else experienced this? It doesn't seem to happen too often. Should I be worried?
  14. Planted Nano Tanks
    I have a 2.5 gallon RCS tank with about 20 shrimp in there. Got them for around a dollar a piece and I would like to start my own colony. I have duckweed, frogbit, anarcharis, a moss ball, water wysteria, a banana plant, hornwort, and java moss in my tank. I live in Central Florida and it gets a...
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi! I am new here! I have a 5.5 gallon and a 20 gallon in a 600 sq ft apartment and I am looking into getting a 2.5 or another 5.5 gallon as a shrimp/planted tank. I'd really like to get some red cherries, but they are so expensive at my LFS. Does anyone know a place to get them for around 2...

    So I currently have a 10 gallon set up with a sponge filter. It is heavily planted with java fern, small anubias, tons of flame moss, and several pieces of driftwood. Along the top is hornwort and duckweed. The lighting is weak/moderate. Black diamond blasting sand for substrate. The pH of my...

    Hello! I have a 29 gal tank that has been through an ich/ick outbreak. I treated the tank with a solution containing; Formaldehyde & Malachite Green. Multiple treatments were required to remedy the disease, and I lost some fish along the way. The surviving fish has been moved into a new tank...
