    Broken seal frozen Mysis

    Should be fine then. Usually if it doesn't smell like death, it won't cause death. And if they at worst risk a tummy ache, they will eat the darn mysis ;)

    Broken seal frozen Mysis

    I assume bad isn't like instant death to 125 gallon tank? Doesn't smell rotten, so probably is fine. Would prefer not tossing it.

    Is this a worm, poop or food?

    Raw, and nope. I just let them be. Its a 125 gallon tank, so always figured some seeds won't pollute too badly :)

    Broken seal frozen Mysis

    Yeah, smells like shrimp. Cut away the leaked area. Likely not fully thawed, I know it goes a tiny bit liquidy rather fast.

    Is this a worm, poop or food?

    Would it still exist after a week though?

    Broken seal frozen Mysis

    Its leaked through the outer cubes. Went ahead and chopped the two outer rows.

    Broken seal frozen Mysis

    Noticed my Mysis shrimp seem to have slightly broken alluminium seal from the store. Looks like they have leaked a bit. Green/black juice. Likely safe to feed anyways? Chopped off the 2 outer rows on the leaking part just incase, but curious. Thanks!

    Is this a worm, poop or food?

    Hey'a! Found this in my tank while doing a WC today. Dead or non-living. Texture like a booger (slimy), and fell apart when pushed on/rubbed. Unsure if rotten 1 week old zucchini, empty fish poop or a dead worm? Cheers

    Dead shrimp cause

    richiep Did a 20-25% change a few days ago. Spotted 2 dead shrimp now, both white:ish and quite large. Not sure if age or some form of shock? Any way to tell? Did another 10-15% wc now incase they rotted a bit in the tank. I've been matching temps to +-0.5C, so shouldn't be an issue there. No...

    Tiny Pleco Trap

    Just wanted to give everybody an update: I made a trap using an old filter cartridge and some fishing line. So far the 2 original pleco's have grown to over an inch, and have been moved to my betta tank (15 gallons). The two new ones are both doing fine also, but remain in the shrimp tank for...

    Tiny Pleco Trap

    You guys think a kinder surprise egg capsule is aquarium safe? Good size to catch those tiny pleco in, and easy to open when I release them. Edit: Also have these: IKEA 365+ Matlåda med lock, fyrkantigt/glas, 180 ml - IKEA Those should be safe, atleast if I remove the rubber seal. Looks like...

    Tiny Pleco Trap

    Not using the syringe as a breeding cave, perhaps I was unclear of my intentions. My thought was using the syringe (clear plastic tube) as a trap for the fry. Small algae wafer in there,then an airline tube in that makes it hard for them to escape. Leaves one side openable to get them out, and...

    Tiny Pleco Trap

    Hmm yeah perhaps! At the moment there is tons of decor and roots, so they stay well hidden. Even some fry seem to survive. But with some luck I can get them to breed somewhere I can easily fish them out of. I'll try my luck on making a trap with some clear container and airline tubing. Should...

    Tiny Pleco Trap

    Why? 125 gallon tank for parents and trying to capture and grow the smaller fry in a 15 gallon tank. Wouldnt call that too cruel What would be cruel is rehousing the pleco to a tank that small for breeding. And certainly no room in my small apartment for a sufficient tank to breed pleco's in.

    Ethylene Oxide sterilization

    Hmm, looks like it does leave residue though? Perhaps its such a tiny amount that its completely irrelevant though. Overview of Ethylene Oxide Residuals | TechTip | STERIS AST
