    20 Gallon Tank Worm shedding? Worm skin? Worm cocoon?

    Some new pics from last night. I’ve fed black worms recently and in the past and I’ve seen them burrow into the substrate before the fish could eat them but now I’m thinking these tube shedding are from mosquitos. while gravel vacing last week I noticed mosquito larva worms being sucked up...

    20 Gallon Tank Petco Siamese Algae Eater?

    It’s been displaying its aggression. So far it hasn’t hurt anything. The pea puffers are to quick for him. It did an amazing job at clearing the algae in the tank though!

    20 Gallon Tank Petco Siamese Algae Eater?

    Bought at Petco 6 weeks ago and it was sold as a Siamese algae eater. It looked very different from when I bought it until now. It went from a silver/gray body with a black horizontal line across its body when I bought it to this yellow color. Is it actually a sae? What is it?

    1 Gallon Tank Dr. Tim’s Fishless Cycle with Ammonia and Bacteria

    A few assorted shrimp of different colors; blue, green, yellow, orange, red. 1 of each. Same sexed so there would be no breeding. Sort of a rainbow shrimp tank. I can take some bio media from 1 of my other tanks. I just don’t know how much of it will fit into this tiny hob filter.
