    Ghost Shrimp sick or dying?

    Yeah. It’s alive again and slowly eating stuff. Two of the legs look weird and dislocated though. Could this be a disease? I’ve also notice white spots on the shrimp.

    Ghost Shrimp sick or dying?

    Hey guys! So I bought a ghost shrimp a couple months ago and added it to my cycled tank. My tank has three red-eyed tetras, two nerites, and that shrimp. The shrimp was doing great when yesterday I saw it lying on its side on the gravel. I thought it was dead so I was trying to net the shrimp...

    How should I feed young red eye tetras?

    Hi, I just did but the small one is still not interested. It had many opportunities to eat a flake or two but just swims away Hmm. It looks the same although the skinny adolescent one doesn’t have the red eye like the adults do. Is that normal?

    How should I feed young red eye tetras?

    My tank had finished cycling last week so I thought it was finally time to buy fishes. I went to petco initially thinking to buy three, but the worker said she accidentally grabbed a young one and didn’t want to put it back so she’ll just give it to me. ANYWAYS, so I have three young adult? And...

    5 Gallon Tank Is this mold or algae?

    The pet shop employee had advised me to do minimum 10 hours so I keep mine on for about 10-15 hours a day.

    Yep, just the flower. I noticed it this morning so this probably happened overnight.

    5 Gallon Tank Is this mold or algae?

    Hi, so I bought an amazon sword plant a few weeks ago and today I saw there were algae looking growth on my sunflower house. However there were also some brown dots along with it so I don’t know if they’re all mold or algae.. If they are mold, what should I do?

    Why is my nerite snail positioned like this?

    Unfortunately, I think he has passed. I think the body shrunk because when I pressed on the trapdoor a little, it pushed in. Also the foul smell has gotten worse. My aquarium currently only has three ghost shrimp now, so I think I’m going to get rid of the dead nerite:( Thanks for the help!

    Why is my nerite snail positioned like this?

    Hi guys, I joined this forum because I couldn’t find anything like my snail’s current condition.. Some background info: I just started my aquarium last week. Put in some aquarium salt, nitrofying bioculture tank starter, pH increaser in conditioned tap water (not in that order). Yesterday my...
