    Just a nice picture I got last night that I wanted to share with everyone
  2. Algae
    Hello Everyone! It is perhaps not surprising that so many aquarists find algae taking up residence in their tanks. I suspect anyone who is currently struggling with algae is likely to find the following worth a read... Note: an example...

    I'm looking for recommendations for a red Echinodorus as the specimen plant for my tank. I'm looking for something that will grow to around 12" tall, maybe a little more. In one of my Dennerle books, I found Echinodorus 'Red Senna', which looks ideal, however it looks like its only available in...

    Does anyone know the reason this occurs? A google search tells me that some plants do this in order to deter pests, and that it can be a sign of something wrong with the plant, but I know that some aquatic species appear green under low light and become red under high. How and why does this...
  5. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I recently suspected that my aquarium had iron deficiencies, and bought a bottle of ADA Brighty Iron Fe(III) on a whim with a plant package because my rotala colorata was green, and my aquarium plants have been turning a lot redder since. Would Seachem Iron ferrous gluconate work just as well as...

    Is it a good:wink2: or bad sign>:) that my blyxa japonica is red / almost purple? It's very pretty, but when I bought it, it was bright green... I read some posts here saying it was good, and others saying it was bad, not sure what to think. Any advice appreciated. This is in a 5 gallon fluval...
  8. Planted Nano Tanks
    I want to rescape my 5.5g with finer-leafed plants for better scale, but I am in love with my Ludwigia sp Red. Are there any equally bright red plants with finer leaves that can tolerate excel? I'm hoping for some form of rotala, but from what I understand, they don't like excel very much. Are...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey Guys, Just wondering if anyone on here is selling or prepared to swap red cherry shrimp in Edinburgh? I've just moved here with my cherries and need some fresh stock, would be great to know the person and sort it all out in a day. Thanks

    Is there a way to intensify the blue on the rilis without losing the red? I suspect not, but it would be cool to see.
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I have a 13 gallon tank with some marimo balls and a moss tree (made with sand blasted manzanita and xmass moss) and eco complete substrate. The filter is a hob with a sponge. My shrimp were doing ok but recently I have been having one die over night for the past 3 days. Water Perimeters...
