    Help Transitioning From Bbs To Packaged Fry Food

    Thanks! They are doing pretty well now. Lost a few due to my inexperience but I guess I had to learn the hard way! I do have Bug Bites. That's the main food I feed my community tank along with frozen blood worms. I will try to feed with that and see if they take it!

    Question Rust Color On Blue Velvet Shrimp

    Great that's for the info! I didn't get a chance to get a better picture anyways today due to a long day at work. And come to think of it I changed their diet a couple weeks ago with a new type of shrimp pellet. It would fit the timeline of when I started noticing the changes!

    Question Rust Color On Blue Velvet Shrimp

    Thanks for the reply! The one that died was the mother of all the shrimp i have now. I bought 4 blue velvets originally and I was just starting with shrimp. I think my inexperience and the non cycled tank I put them in is what ultimately did them in. They all died but I was able to quickly...

    Question Rust Color On Blue Velvet Shrimp

    Hey everyone. A few of my Blue Velvet shrimp are starting to developed a rusty color on them. They are about 5 months old. I'm hoping they are getting close to a mature breeding age. Is this normal or a sign something may be wrong?

    Newbie Here - Ready To Learn!

    Welcome to Fishlore! It's very easy to get hooked. I bought my daughter sea monkeys about a year ago. She lost interest in them fairly quickly. Not me! That little sea monkey tank has turned into a 45g community tank, 5g guppy tank, 10g shrimp breeding tank, and I just got a pair or Honey...

    Important How To Feed My Gourami Fry While Gone On Work Trip

    Well just got back from my trip. I found about three dead ones on the bottom and 2 that look like they are struggling. But counted 7 that considerably bigger than the dead/ struggling ones.

    Plastic Pot Scrubbers

    I recently changed my 55g from HOB to a sump. I have about 22 plastic pot scrubbers along with lava rock, filter floss and filter sponge as media. My dollor store was the same so I avoided them. I bought mine at Canadian Tire for about $2.50 for a pack of 6. I figured the extra few dollars was...

    Question Shrimp Id And Parameters

    Hey all! I have a couple questions. First can someone help me confirm ID on my shrimp? They were sold to me as Green Jade shrimp but I'm not sure if that's accurate.
