    Help Shrimp Babies On The Way

    Haha I wasn't going to, the eggy one spent hours picking it off the wall so I'm inclined to leave it there if she's happy to clean it for me. Just so I grasp the importance of it, if I were to not use this product, what's the healthy baby rate going to be like? I have been supplementing the...

    Help Shrimp Babies On The Way

    The moss mat sounds like a great idea! But won't I have to implement that at a later point? I'm worried if I start pulling up bits of the tank she'll freak out and drop her eggs. I'll have to look into cholla wood too, I've never seen that before! I wonder if I'll have to buy it online. :/ I'll...

    Help Shrimp Babies On The Way

    So I look in at my tank with my 7 cherry shrimp in there, and ones going ballistic, doing parkour laps around the tank. I look into this and find that it could either be unwell or unhappy, or a pheromone high male shrimp looking for a mate. I'm not able to sex him because one, he's moving too...

    Question Can I Put Shrimp In My Fry Tank?

    This is where she's put herself too, right in between two leaves so she's hard to see. Probably the point of hiding, haha.

    Question Can I Put Shrimp In My Fry Tank?

    I'll see if I can get some java moss soon. If not, would they be ok eating the fish food I give to my fry? It's just tropical flakes that I grind between my fingers for their little mouths. Glad to hear this is normal for a pregnant shrimp, I've never kept them before, haha.

    Question Can I Put Shrimp In My Fry Tank?

    New update! I've found some cherry shrimp, they were 6 for $20 aud, so we bought 6. 2 are in the little fry tank I described to you guys earlier, the other 4 are currently in with the white clouds. If all goes well, there might be more moved in with the fry. However, one of the shrimp put in...

    Question Can I Put Shrimp In My Fry Tank?

    Thanks! How big is your tank for your fry though? Mine is a lot smaller than what most people have set up for fry, which works for me because I only hold them there for a couple of months or so, but I was also wondering if the small space might make one side more aggressive? Or at the very least...

    Question Can I Put Shrimp In My Fry Tank?

    To preface this, I want to say that my fry tank is very small, it's only about 6l. Its not even there to grow the fish up completely, I have a spare fish tank currently being lived in for my larger fry. My fry are swordtails babies, so they're larger at birth than other fish. The tank has an...

    Help Why So Fat?? Zebra Danio

    Nice! I think sometimes you can just try it, and if they don't get along, you can most likely move the fish, take it/them back, or give them to a friend. And sometimes you just have an awful fish in particular. I've got a swordtail who is absolutely awful to everyone when she's pregnant, but I...

    Help Why So Fat?? Zebra Danio

    I don't really know why she died. But it was a while ago now. Also would you believe that these danios are happily coexisting with my massive angelfish in the tank? The angelfish likes to 'chase' new fish around the tank to re-establish the pecking order, but when I put the danios in, there were...

    Help Why So Fat?? Zebra Danio

    It's ok, it was a while ago now. But that is interesting. I've never had a fish die from something like that... Well I hope my danios stay for a lovely long time!

    Help Why So Fat?? Zebra Danio

    I've had a guppy in that tank that got increasingly oversized, lethargic, without eating. She was also completely the wrong shape to simply be gravid. Then she turned up dead. I don't really know what else to attribute that to, still sounds a lot like dropsy to me. But if you guys think that...

    Thank you! If it only looks like eggs, I'll just keep an eye on her. I've never kept danios before.
