I have a single, small sized 15 watt bulb, but it does light up the tank pretty bright. It's on from 8am-12, and 1:30-5pm. There is a lot of natural light, but I have window shades, and the tank is set in a bookshelf, so there isn't any direct light.
10g tank, tested yesterday, nitrates, ammonia, etc is all where it should be. I do weekly water changes of about 30-40%
I have 3 ADF and 1 male guppy.
What is this ? It's on one side of a wall, and on the driftwood, too. How do I get rid of it?
Okay, so a little research later, I was thinking. Golden Bee and Blue Jelly/Blue Velvet/Dream Blue Velvet? (There are so many names for what seems like the same shrimp, possibly) The dream blue seems to be the darkest.
Would these 2 species be compatible, PH and Temp wise?
Hey guys. I read back over several pages, and tried a search, but didn't come up with much. I'm sure this has been asked multiple times, so forgive me for asking again.
I have a 10 gallon tank in my office. I'm going to make it a shrimp tank. I've had RCS before, but it's been a while, and...
If he can get in and out, it's okay, but what about when he grows a little and can possibly get stuck? There is a post in the Pleco section where a lady's pleco got stuck in the filter and died. I would hate for that to happen to you, which is why I mentioned it.
Here's the way I look at it. If I filled up the bathtub, climbed in, and stayed there for even just a couple of weeks, never getting out, and doing my business in there, how clean do you think that water would be? Nasty, even if I added a plant....
That's how it is for your fish.
I recently cleaned out this tank, especially the gravel. I noticed an algae growth on the side of the tank after coming to work on Monday. I've left it there for now, as it doesn't seem to be spreading, other than growing a little longer, and my new baby killifish seem to like pecking thru it...
I think mine will be that way eventually, but he's little bitty right now. He stands his ground, though!
I finally saw my otos eating spinach. Sorry for the bad picture, but the timer on the tank lights was off for the night.
You can also go on Amazon, and order a sponge filter for less than $5. It's perfect for a small tank with just 1 fish. You just attach a airline to it, and off it goes. Also, pick up some Tetra Safe Start (TSS) or Seachem Stability, to help cycle your tank.
I have sponge filters in my betta...
