    Safest way to transfer when upgrading tank

    I was just wondering how you all upgrade your shrimp tanks. I have a 3.5 gallon bow front shrimp tank with a filter that attaches to the rim. I recently got a 5 gallon to upgrade it that I plan to use a sponge filter in. When I first set up this shrimp tank I took out the cherries from my main tank and...

    10 Gallon Tank Social Fish for Office - Stocking

    I have aquarium at work that had a honey gourami in it that was always hiding and everyone one complained that they never saw him.

    Average Neocaridina Cost?

    I was just wondering what is considered a “good price” for these guys are. For something that is supposed to breed like crazy they seem kinda spendy. At my LFS and sometimes petsmart all kinds seem to be $5, and I got mine off Craigslist $2 for reds and $3 for the yellows which seems more...

    Adf And Java Moss

    Last year chytrid attacked my tank, resulting in all my frogs but one dying and a terrible fear of it happening again. I currently have her in her own tank that I make sure doesn’t have any cross contamination. But I remember how much she loved Java moss but I haven’t put any in afraid that it...

    Question Putting Sand Over Gravel

    I have a planted tank with sharp gravel. I don’t like it since it cuts down on what I can have like cories and loaches, but not enough to tear down the tank. I thought about just adding a layer of sand on top of that and I could make it work with most of the plants except my dwarf hair grass. It...

    Question I Don’t Think My Guppies Are Guppies

    Last December I got three “guppy” fry that were just born at petsmart. I got lucky because I already had two male guppies and they seem(ed) to be all males as there has been no babies. But there were certainly times when I thought one or two were starting to present as female because they just...

    Ripping Up Stem Plants?

    I added a honey gourami a couple a weeks ago and I just noticed that lots of my stem plants have been uprooted. I’ve never seen this before and I can’t this of what could have happened on such a scale. Has anyone had anything like this happen? I’m hesitant to replant them if it’s just going to...

    Nerite Snails In A New Tank

    I just set up a new 10 gallon at work and I eventually want to add a nerite snail or too to help keep it clean. I know they should only be introduced to an established tank, but how established does it need to be? My guess is a minimum of a month or too.

    I’m setting up an aquarium for my office at work and researching has made me start to long for a centerpiece fish. I really want a dwarf or honey gourami but I have cherry shrimp and I don’t want them to be snacks. I know having these is really going to cut down what I can get so that’s why I...

    I got my boss to let us get a 10 gallon for our office. Our office manager wanted to get a betta but I vetoed it for now. I definitely want to put 2 amano shrimp in there.

    Tiny Babies

    I just bought about 20 cherry shrimp today from Craigslist, and they are so tiny! They were advertised as adult sized, but they’re bite sized babies. Since my 3 gallon QT is being used at the moment I’m wondering what I could do with these guys. Could a simple breeder box in the main tank be enough?
