    https://youtu.be/K8bTx4lKMek i ended up going with 6 chilis and a sparkling gourami. LFS said sparkling can live alone but now some ppl are saying that they need at least 6 - any thoughts?

    What fish should I stock?! Overgrown 7.5G shrimp tank in need of some livestock

    Wow those are cool! I’ve never heard of them before. Do they breed? And how many chilis do you have and what size is your tank? Maybe i could do 5 chilis, and a pair of badis?

    What fish should I stock?! Overgrown 7.5G shrimp tank in need of some livestock

    I have 5 cherries and an amano in this tank. I’ve gone through a couple of bad batches of chili rasboras - open to trying again but wanted to know what you all think would stock well? Are there any fish that do well in pairs that could cohabitate with shrimp and potentially chilis? All...

    Chili Rasboras Dying Quickly

    Thank you for the advice. Despite the airstone it looks like only 3 of the remaining 6 survived the night. Hopefully somebody with chili experience will see this and help me save the rest :/

    Chili Rasboras Dying Quickly

    One of my dwarfs was kind enough to demonstrate the flow. You can also see in the other video I’m using a water pump to push water from behind the rock formation over the top of the rock. I can’t take off the spin filter without stopping my filter, but I can add an air stone to add more...

    Chili Rasboras Dying Quickly

    I’m using a spin lily pipe to reduce flow because i read that Chilis like low flow, the filter is probably turning over the tank 3x per hour but the movement is diffused by the spin pipe which maybe is under-oxygenating the water? Idk if spin lily pipes cause this issue, but i can add an air...

    Chili Rasboras Dying Quickly

    I’ve had this 7.5G tank cycling for about a month since I lost all of my fish to columnaris. I’ve had 5 dwarf shrimp and an amano in it for a couple of weeks and this AM I added 7 chili rasboras from my lfs. I drip acclimated them for 5+ hours last night and added them this AM and I’ve already...

    Begininer - Columnaris wiped out my first planted tank - advice on restarting

    Unfortunately, I'm euthanizing my betta tonight :( The Kanaplex + Furan-2 did stop the spread, but it's already made a hole in his mouth and shot his gills - he's only breathing air now, and he's suffering so much I don't think he'll recover. I appreciate all of the input and help on this. I'll...

    Begininer - Columnaris wiped out my first planted tank - advice on restarting

    I didn’t quarantine them, lesson learned on that. I definitely introduced the columnaris via the tetras bc one of them died almost immediately and it had a lesion on its back. At the time i thought the betta got him but he never bothered the other fish and now the rest of the tank are sick...

    Begininer - Columnaris wiped out my first planted tank - advice on restarting

    I’ve had my first planted nanotank going for a little over a month now. It’s 6.5G, and had 3 neon tetras, 3 chili rasboras, a koi betta, nerite, and amano shrimp. 2 of the chili rasboras and 2 of the neon tetras died over the last 2 days with bug eye, and gasping for air. Now my betta has...
