    Hey everyone, so it’s been a while since I’ve been active on here— long story short, my beloved betta Floyd died getting stuck between a decoration and the glass in his tank.

    Okay so I ordered hornwort from aquatic arts about a month ago, but when it got here I noticed it looked strange.

    3 Nerites, 2 Weeks, No Eggs?

    Hey everyone, I got 3 red racer nerite snails a couple of weeks ago. I reluctantly accepted the fact that I would have their white eggs everywhere but I haven’t seen any yet. It seems unlikely I would have happened to end up with all boys. Does this sound normal?

    Question Planning The Stock For My Second Tank

    Hey everyone, I'm planning on starting up a second betta tank this summer-- I want to do something big enough for me to add other fish, but still as small as possible because large tanks are unfortunately not feasible for me for a few more years.

    i added a couple bags of fluval biomax to my filter for extra filtration and to keep for a future second tank. Just noticed it has a lot of brown and green on it. I’m sure the green is algae but not sure about the brown. Is this normal?

    Question Shrimp In Hiding

    I got 11 blue shrimp yesterday and put them in my super heavily planted betta tank. Since there are so many places to hide I can usually only see 3 or 4 at a time. I’m just worried some will die and I won’t know. Will their bodies mess with my water conditions?
