  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a 30L RCS tank in my office that was setup a year ago. I've got challenges with water temps, I'll have fluctuations of 10 degrees Celsius across a 24hr period. On a summers day, water temp can sit 27-29 degrees Celsius. In the tank is an anubias and moss. Water parameters are stable. I do...

    I have seed shrimp, which I hate, but whatever. I've noticed both my Scarlet Badis hunting nearby and completely ignoring the seed shrimp. Will they eventually eat them? I would have thought they'd love them and hunt them with relish, but nope, they seem to want want nothing to do with them.
  3. 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...
  4. Planted Nano Tanks
    My 5 gallon tank has nematodes, seed shrimp, and copepods, and I'd like to know if they'll get out of hand, with me just having cherry shrimp and otos. I don't really have the room in my tank for more fish--would bladderwort keep them in check? Something like Utricularia graminifolia? I've been...

The water part has two nerite snails, two Otocinclus, and two cherry shrimp. Water is continuously cycled...

    I have been noticing some holes in the larger leaves of my ludwigia lately. None of my critters that I keep in the tank should eat these plants, but i do have some seed shrimp. Any ideas as to what may be wrong here? Thanks!

    I'm afraid I don't have a picture to show you guys (maybe this evening I can snap one) but one of my Otocinclus is being given a bit of a hard time by what I believe to be seed shrimp. They've been in the tank for ages now, I've learnt to ignore them for the most part, but now a large group of...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently started a daphnia culture from eggs. Most of them look like normal daphnia, but some of them look and swim differently. They look like seed shrimp but I'd like a second opinion. Here's a video (sorry if they're hard to see, my camera's not that great ^^; ) Also the water's a little...
