    Hybrid Shrimp Help

    Hi Everyone, A while back, I made the foolish mistake of adding yellow shrimp to my 10-gallon tank when I thought all of the Blue Rili's had died off. HOWEVER, there was apparently one blue rili surviving in the tank and she bred with one of the yellows that got added. NOW, I have about 37 (I...

    Canister filter making a running water noise

    This might be a stupid question but are you sure all of the connections are fully open? I run a cascade canister and the only time it sounds like running water is when one of the valves are closed or if the water level in the tank is to low and the outflow is hitting the top. Sorry I couldn't...

    Important New and Inexperienced with a Sick Betta

    Snails you would have no problem with. The only issue you would run into would be in the betta confuses the antennas for worms but I have never experienced that first hand. The snails usually retreat before that happens plus my Bettas have all been very well manners (but maybe I'm just lucky)...

    10g stocking

    I have yellow shrimp, my male betta, some snails and a dwarf goby in my ten gallon. everyone is VERY happy. The gobies are very interesting but make sure it's a dwarf as these feed on algae and won't bother the betta like the regular size ones would.

    I would recommend a botanical mix. you can either add adler cones and almond leaves right to the water OR you can boil some water and make a tea with them (and once cooled down add it to the tank). This will release tannins into the water which has beneficial properties for bettas. This will...

    Nerite Snail Issues

    RIGHT!?! This brings me back to my only theory which was that one nerite got infected with a wound or something from the hydra and then that caused a chain reaction? However, to debunk that, I have almond leaves and drift wood in my tanks AND I even dosed with a liquid botanical extract (which I...

    Nerite Snail Eggs

    If you trade in the nerites for a single mystery snail then you won't run into that issue-- I currently have eggs EVERYWHERE from my nerites and don't plan on removing them from the rocks or wood because like I said, EVERYWHERE. It's a lost battle in my opinion haha, sorry to say.

    Nerite Snail Issues

    Certainly! Here's all three tanks (5,10 and 30)-- all attached. Towards the end of their lives, I had about 4 nerites in the 10g (with my BEAUTIFUL betta-- in the pic ), 5 in the 30g and 1 in the 5g. All other snails are alive. I have a ton of shrimp including babies and none of my fish have...

    Help I Think My Betta Is Dying. What Do I Do Next?

    Sorry for all the stupid questions, just trying to get a better understanding. More thinking out-loud. In your previous post, you said the tank is 4 degrees cooler (?) then room temp? so that would make it 68? but your profile says it runs at 80? Do you have an additional thermometer or just...

    Help I Think My Betta Is Dying. What Do I Do Next?

    Is the tank he's in cycled? Have you tried natural remedies like almond leaves? or other botanical extracts? That worked wonders for my betta. What kind of water conditioner do you use? If it has added slime coat then that could me making it worse?

    Nerite Snail Issues

    Sorry for the long response: I tested on Friday (before and AND after doing a 15% water change to all of my tanks). I can definitely do it again but at this point, I know it's not the water from any obvious readings of tests I have in my possession. I tested GH (8), KH (5), Ammonia (0), Nitrite...
