    Fishstery's first dutch(ish) style tank!

    OMG that scape is amazing! At first when I saw the tank I thought it was at least 20 gallons but then I saw in the description that it was actually 5 gallons! The depth in that tank is crazy!

    Sorry for the delay everyone! Let me catch you all up to date. For the first week the the 30g had some cloudy water which I think was due to me adding sand to it that was not cleaned all the way. I added some filter floss though and it all went away. Luckily the fish and shrimp were all...

    Found these today -- what should I do?

    You don't need to start over. Pest snails are pretty much inevitable in a planted aquarium no matter what you do. Instead of trying to eradicate them completely you should aim to control their numbers by not overfeeding and doing regular aquarium maintenance.

    They are pretty much teeny little crustaceans that feed on algae and biofilm. They don't pose any threat to my shrimp it was just that there were just a bit too much of them for my liking. I shall now also give a small update. I have finally received the light and shrimp food for the shrimp...

    Update time for the tanks! I rescaped the 30gal to be more open. In the middle I am planning on having a nice leveled out montecarlo or pearlweed carpet and on the sides there will be very dense plant growth. When I was rescaping I trimmed the plants down a bit and bundled up the clippings...
