    Help Ghost Shrimp Is Getting Strips And Tiny Dots

    The brownish stuff is most likely diatoms, very common in new tanks. It should disappear as the tank matures. The green algae may also cure itself. If you still have it in a couple months there may be other issues to address but I wouldn’t worry until then.

    Help Ghost Shrimp Is Getting Strips And Tiny Dots

    Stripes and spots are normal for a healthy ghost shrimp. As for the missing legs, couple of molts and they should be OK. Hard water is actually beneficial for most invertebrates. If your water is extremely hard you can cut it with distilled water, but don’t use distilled water exclusively.

    Shrimp Keep Dying And I Don't Know Why

    My experience with neocaridinas is that as far as hardiness red cherries > Rili > blues or greens or yellows. Not surely why that is but it may be related to the amount of breeding required.

    Help Sad Oscar Cichlid.

    I would try live food. Every time my cousin came to my house he would drop a net full of feeders. It got so that when he walked in the room they would go nuts at the front of the tank.

    Moss Id Help

    I would say Cameroon or Queen moss. Definitely not Christmas, Flame or Java moss. Mine are hidden deep in a nest of spider wood so I can’t really take a picture to compare.

    Question Splitting Java Moss, Keeping Moss Seperate!

    See if there is a landscaping supply place nearby. They usually sell things like gravel by the cubic yard for driveways but many carry multiple types of stone as well. Most are willing to sell smaller amounts for very cheap.

    Mopani Wood

    Both are definitely mopani. Be aware that the “light” colored part will darken on exposure to water. Essentially you will have dark wood and very dark wood eventually. The one piece looks like it has been submerged for a while already.
