    What's Your Most Useful Non-aquarium Tool (for Aquarium Use)?

    A cat litter scoop's holder modified to help with water changes. Never used it for the cat boxes, but we drilled some holes in the sides and slapped some cheap bent metal hooks on there to hook it over the edge of the tank. It's easy to place, easy to remove, and it keeps my plants, gravel, and...

    Can I Add More Shrimp?

    Hahahaha, yeah I’m probably not going to buy 500 shrimp at once! But it's great to know I can have more! Thank you for the input!

    Lost a Filter Part - Top Fin Silenstream 30 Power Filter

    Thanks for the fast reply. I figured getting a new one would be the case. I don’t have any filter intake sponges right now, but I’ll try get one of those, too, since I’m thinking about getting more cherry shrimp and I don’t want any small ones getting sucked through.

    Can I Add More Shrimp?

    Tank: 29 gallons heavily(?) planted Ammonia: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 10 ppm Stocking: 8 corydoras Schwartz, 7 pearl danio, 7 neon tetra, 6 male guppies, 2 nerite snails, 2 Amano shrimp, 1 maybe-cardinal/maybe-cherry shrimp, at least 1 bladder snail (came in with the danios, but I like snails and...

    Lost a Filter Part - Top Fin Silenstream 30 Power Filter

    So this is really dumb, but my brother was helping me clean my 29 gallon tank and he flushed part of the filter. In the process of cleaning, I had the filter turned off and was rinsing the filter media, as well as the intake cover because it gets covered in loose Java moss, dead leaves, and...

    Matching Stock Problem

    Just wanted you all to know that I got the catfish and they’re doing well! I ended up not quarantining because my quarantine tank is only 5.5 gallons and I got 7 new catfish, all several months old, so pretty big. It’s been about a week and a half, and so far so good! All healthy, no signs of...

    Quick Snail ID Question

    That's a really good idea, thank you. I’m sure the shrimp and fish in my tank would love the extra little treat!

    Quick Snail ID Question

    Thank you both! I only see the one so far, but everyone says they spread like crazy. I kind of like snails, though, so I think I’ll leave it be, reduce feeding, and if gets really out of hand, invest in an assassin snail. Thanks again!

    Quick Snail ID Question

    Saw this tiny critter in my tank this morning while feeding the fish. After looking at the guide, I’m pretty sure that it’s a bladder snail? He must’ve come in with the most recent fish purchase, because I’m pretty sure my nerite snails' eggs won't hatch without briny water. Can somebody double...

    Matching Stock Problem

    Yeah I was surprised, too. It's going to be expensive, though, but that's okay. I’m excited to have a shoal of them again, and especially a bigger one. They were so fun to watch, even when I only had three, and clearly a closely knit group. And thank you for warning about parasites. I'll restock...

    Oops, I Think I Got Some Hybrids

    Hi everyone, just wanted to post a final update here. As people said, the fry are mollies, mollies, and more mollies haha. A recent batch has a much darker fry, so I assume the color has reverted back because of a hybrid trait or something. Genetics are a bit beyond me. Anyway, thank you all...

    Matching Stock Problem

    Thank you for all the help, everyone! After a few of the suggestions here, I found a local group with a breeder of my kind of cory, and we're in talks about getting a few of his fish (enough for a properly sized shoal). He seems honestly concerned about the future health of the fish, and is...

    Matching Stock Problem

    I could possibly re-home him. I like him a lot, but it would be better for his health, if I can’t find a local breeder selling his species. I’m not part of any groups or clubs beyond this site, and the pandemic makes it difficult to go out and ask people at the petstore, but I’ll add searching...

    Matching Stock Problem

    The price isn’t the main issue for me rather than that they don’t do well in shipping. I'll keep looking for someone closer, but it seems like all the breeders are in Washington state, and I’m all the way on the east coast :L
