  1. Safest water changes to bring nitrates down in shrimp tank

    Hello everyone! My 5.5 gallon red rili shrimp tank has been established since the spring-summer. There are at least 100 shrimp in there....and even more ramshorns. I change 1/2 gallon of water every week since I know they are sensitive to change in their water parameters. I just tested...
  2. Lethargic Betta

    Thank you PascalKrypt ! I didn’t realize until I rewatched her in the video, that she is not moving her tail at all, you are right!! I didn’t drop the water level, I find that her filter creates pretty turbulent water when the water level is even more than 1/2” below the output. She actually...

  4. Pregnant Cherry Shrimp And Filters??

    AQUARIUS1618 ...I just have an update to my suggestion. Lately a few shrimp, of all sizes, have been making it into the internal compartment of my filter...the area with the media...even with the pantyhose covering the intake. The have all been alive, except for one. The death prompted me to...
  5. Qt For Shrimp

    I am not sure how I missed your post...thank you angelcraze !! The Amanos look much bigger than I expected, I am going to forget about them going into a 10gallon...that’s not really fair to them. Thank you :) I have a 5gallon with red rilis, but I am attached to them and would be devastated if...
  6. Qt For Shrimp

    Thank you! I haven’t had Amano before, I didn’t realize 2.5 was too small for qt for them...thank you! Would 5 g be okay or just stick to 10 gallon? I will use a bin if I can’t get a tank. I have lots of water lettuce in my other tanks...I am throwing out buckets per week!! I really need to learn how...
  7. Qt For Shrimp

    Thank you! I thought I had read about an intestinal parasite they can carry and transfer to fish but I could be mistaken! And can they transfer ich? I don’t think they can really get the actual disease, but can carry and therefore transfer it to fish? I could be wrong though :)
  8. Swapping Filter In Shrimp Tank

    Thank you both! I have been happy with how this tank is doing, which is why I haven’t changed anything in the last few weeks even though juvenile shrimp were in the filter. It scared me more today finding two fairly large ones in there. I would rather not change anything either since...
  9. Swapping Filter In Shrimp Tank

    hi everyone! I have an established 5.5 g with many cherry shrimp (70+??) it’s been running since July with the shrimp in, previously they were in a smaller tank. Anyway, I have two filters on the tank...a tiny sponge filter and an internal filter..tetra whisper 10i . The intake is covered...
  10. Qt For Shrimp

    Hello!! I would like to add a couple Amano shrimp with my young female Betta in my established 10gallon (ramshorns and a nerite are her tankmates at the moment). She is still small, just over an inch in length. I know I should qt the shrimp prior to adding them in with her. I have a 2.5...
  11. Pregnant Cherry Shrimp And Filters??

    You are welcome! Good luck!
  12. Pregnant Cherry Shrimp And Filters??

    Since it’s the toe part, it’s pretty narrow and I find it stays up on it’s own
  13. Pregnant Cherry Shrimp And Filters??

    Hello!! Welcome!! I have cherry rili shrimp in a 5.5 gallon tank, with the same filter...you can put the closed toe part of pantyhose over the bottom of the filter covering the intake. Does that make sense? Then they can’t get sucked in. The other alternative is to get a sponge filter, run by...
  14. Excited About House Plants

    Thanks JessicaSwanlake ! I haven’t heard of that product before...I will look into it!! The only ones they really go for are the ones that look like grass...so so big palms for me, and dracenas have to be put up high. I will check out that product though! Thanks!!
  15. Excited About House Plants

    Thank you! You guys are awesome! I probably wouldn’t have picked up the Ledebouria if it was labelled...looking it up, it is highly toxic to cats...we have 5. Sigh. Will have to make sure it stays away from them for sure!! Thanks again!
