    Java Moss Problem

    well if the mesh is just to anchor it down then there is no need for that because it doesnt seem to be floating. i have had it now for 2 days and it hasnt moved from where i buried it. also the shrimps like to sit under it, because it is like a cave underneath. i dont really want to use any...

    Java Moss Problem

    i have just got some java moss at the same time as 10 crystal red shrimp and one other shrimp (im not sure what the other one is). i was wondering if there is any way to get it to grow really quickly. i know that some chemicals will kill the shrimp so i dont want to use any fertilisers. also...

    yeah well its the the dead fish in every single tank that worried me more. there were really nice chichlid tanks with like 3 or 4 dead fish in. and the were like £15-£20 each. the things in the moss definitely were not baby shrimps. they had more than 6 legs! like 10 legs! hard to tell though...

    new 15 gallon tank

    Oh, i dont know! i went to the pet shop and asked for some food to feed my shrimp and that is what they gave me. they eat it all though. they are small pellets so the shrimp can grab them and hold onto them. so i put 5 in per day, 1 per shrimp.

    upside down catfish ill?

    he has been on his own for a few days now and he was swimmng all over the tank. i think that he was just being bullied by the other catfish and the pleco. so he can stay in the 15 gallon now until he gets too big. also i have put 5 neons in there so he doesnt get lonely

    new 15 gallon tank

    thats what i was thinking of doing, having a species tank because the shrimp i want are tiny and i dont want them getting eaten. also none will go hungry because i feed them vegetables and shrimp pellets . so if i start with 6-10 shrimp. that will give them plenty of room for baby shrimp...

    new 15 gallon tank

    I have bought cherry shrimp twice before, 6 at a time and 6 orange shrimp. none of them lasted longer than a week =[. I dont know why though because they went into the tank with platy fry and amano shrimp in. Would the amano shrimp eat other shrimp? But i have had the amano shrimp for about 2...
