    I got 20 of these shrimp in my 55-gallon planted tank, and although the shopkeeper agreed with my saying that it is Amano shrimp, he was not entirely sure, now that I have known about ghost shrimp I am confused about which one it is. Can someone help identify if it is Amano shrimp or ghost...

    Hello! Newcomer in the hobby here. I would like some advice regarding water hardness. My tank has been set up for nearly 2 months, and I haven't seen any signs of plants/animals reacting negatively to the low GH of my water (according to the liquid test kit, it's at most 3°dH). I have java fern...

    So I bought I think around 18 shrimp to start a colony from my local Petsmart. They were advertised as Blue Velvet shrimp. The tank I put them in has light color sand - not quite white but very light tan. These shrimp are super dark blue. One looks like a rili - blue with clear, but it's not in...

    I haven’t gotten anything yet, so this is still the planning stages! For various reasons I’ve decided to get a Flex, and while I want to get the 32g one day I’m going to start with a smaller one, and the 15g isn’t much more expensive than the 9g. Current stocking plan is a betta, rice fish, and...

    Hi, my job has a nice big mulberry tree that I can harvest from. We are a farm shelter in Virginia and we do not spray anything anywhere. I am waiting on my first shrimp tank to cycle, so I do not have shrimp yet, but I figured I would collect some leaves for the future. Should I blanch and then...

    Has any ever seen anything like this? Somehow, spores or bits of fibers from the moss ball started growing all over my prefilter. My shrimp love it as you can see. At least that is what I think it is. Has anyone seen this before?
