    Hi guys, I need some advice. I currently have a planted 60l tank. I pretty much did water changes every other day and noticed that when I dont do the water changes, i start to have hair algae. I recently converted this tank to a shrimp tank. Since i cant do water changes as often as i used to...

  3. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have a 2.5g nano shrimp tank which I was having a lot of trouble with (4 out of 15 died) and the shrimp always hang out at the top of the tank. I was told this may be an oxygen issue, and to me this did not seem unlikely, so I purchased an air stone- however the issue is that it is agitating...

    Hi all! I have a shrimp tank with a set heater bringing the temperature up to 73.4f/23C, and I’ve been told by some to remove the heater (not sure how to do this without shocking the shrimp), which would bring the tank down to my room temp of 66f/19C. this is a new tank, that I have had a few...

    Hi all, I’m fairly new to fish-keeping, and brand new to shrimp keeping, and I’m experiencing some problems with my brand new cherry shrimp in a 2.5g planted bowl.

    Hi, Not new to the aquarium hobby per se (new to this forum!), but it's been a few years since I last dealt with it. This time around I've set up an Aquael 20l nano aquascape for shrimp and some nano fish/snails. The tank has Tropica's simple CO2 system set up in it with a nice green...

    Hello, Me and my roommate have a (marketed as chili, but likely dwarf or strawberry from the markings) rasbora who we think is a female in a 5-gal planted nano tank. Her tank-mates are assorted small snails, a horned nerite snail, and four small neocardina, we plan to get a few more after...

    I live in the Annandale, VA area and am looking to start on a new aquarium containing mainly live plants, shrimp, and snails and a few fish. I went ahead and got a few plants to add to my tank, but want to see what else is out there. I have previous experience with planted tanks but this time I...

    What are some bright red shrimp that do not breed in freshwater? Here's what I'm looking for exactly: 1) I'm fairly new to the shrimp game so I would prefer some that are easier to care for. 2) I would like a species that can survive in a 1-5 gallon tank. 3) It should be between 0.5-1 inch in...

    What stores have Malaysian trumpet snails (Melanoides tuberculata) and Bamboo shrimp (Atyopsis moluccensis)? I have a planted aquarium I am setting up for Betta and was told those snails and shrimp are compatible with Bettas. Also, is there a local source for Blackworms (Lumbriculus variegatus)?

    So, for the longest time I've been stupidly using Seachem Equilibrium. Turns out, a lot of other people still have shrimp deaths while using this product because it's not all that beneficial for them. I wish I had known that sooner since I had a tub of Salty Shrimp for months that I never...
  19. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey guys, So I recently setup a small aquarium for starting a RCS colony. I fishless cycled the tank and in the interim, started growing out a pearlweed carpet and ambulia forest as I thought these would give lots of hiding spots and surface area for algae films to grow. After ensuring the...
