    Anubias Melted - Can Rhizomes Be Saved?

    you live and you learn. I've made some mistakes as well but now I know better. These forums have helped me a lot when doing my research. I was scared to do a bleach dip. But I went and got everything I needed. After watching youtube videos 1000 times and reading things on here, I finally did...

    Anubias Melted - Can Rhizomes Be Saved?

    What type of algae do you have? The algae I've had was cleared away with a bleach dip and/or some rubbing off with a soft toothbrush. That dip also kills off any unwanted snails/eggs/etc. I also agree that the plant will grow back. Unfortunately, there's not way to really speed up the...

    10 Gallon Tetra Tank With Betta Question

    I have a 30 gallon with 1 betta and quite a few neon and ember tetras, kuhlI loaches, mystery snail, 2 cherry shrimp and a nerite snail. They all get along just great but they do need space. I've seen my betta chase a tetra once but they have enough room that they can get away. Other than that...

    Nerite Snails In A New Tank

    My ghost shrimp took a live black worm and ate it one time. I sat there scratching my head. He ate it all too. Didn’t know they eat that. But I agree on the veggies. My mystery snail eats it when I drop it in. And the pellets are hit or miss. My kuhlI loaches will eat it and in some cases they...

    Nerite Snails In A New Tank

    I added my nerite snail about 2-3 weeks after starting the cycle process and it died. I gave it algae wafers and did blanch foods too. All the other nerites I've added after the tank was cycled are still alive.

    Anubis’s Plants

    That could be 1 issue. I also had a temp "issue" as I kept the temp around 80F. I lowered it so that it's around 74-76F. The fish and shrimp in my tank are okay with 72-76F. I was also using Flourish and didn't see a difference in anything. When I changed to ThriveC, my plants started to grow...

    Anubis’s Plants

    Mine used to look like that. I cut back on how long I kept my lights on, lowered the temp and I switched to Niloc ThriveC. The day I started all that, I did a water change and scrubbed the plants with a soft toothbrush. I got what I could off the plants and put them back in. Since then, I...

    Freshwater Neon Tetra & Betta

    It really depends on your tank size. Tetras are schooling fish so you'll need a group of them. I personally have neon and Ember Tetras. I had them all swim in the tank for a few days before I introduced Escobar. When I did, I put him in the plastic bag that your fish come in and let him...

    30 Gallon Tank New Fluval Flex

    This one is identical to the 9g Flex. It doesn't distort the view, thankfully. There were some other curved tanks that I've seen at that LFS and the curved glass did distort the view. made it hard to get a good look at things.

    Berried Shrimp Help

    One of my red cherry's is berried. Never had a berried shrimp before and was wondering if I should do anything special or just let nature take its course. Tank: Fluval Spec 2.6g. I already blocked off the slots weeks ago so no shrimp can get through them. Should I put the sponge back on the...

    30 Gallon Tank New Fluval Flex

    Thought I'd share this new 30 gallon Fluval Flex tank I found today. My LFS just got the shipment and its a beautiful tank! If I had room, I'd buy it. We even debated about if we should sell stuff just to make room for it. lol. Not a fan of the stand itself but that's just me. The original...

    Aquatop Pf40 Uv

    Thanks for the heads up. I don’t have it on 24/7 now. But the plan is to buy a background so I can hide all the wires/tubes/filter.

    Aquatop Pf40 Uv

    In case anyone is curious. I removed the carbon filter and the cover on the UV light. I added a bag of bio media and some loose bio media (what was in there before). I had more than enough room to add the purigen. I was able to open up the flow a bit more without it pouring out the top.

    Is This Flame Moss?

    That's exactly what it's supposed to look like. I just planted mine a week ago so it's in the process of forming itself. But its the only moss that grows vertically..at least from what I read.

    Is This Flame Moss?

    I have flame moss and java moss. What you have is definitely not flame moss. I was also given a ton of the flame moss. I created a very small moss wall with some mesh and I have more sitting in a jar.
