  1. Question Should I be concerned?

    I just bought two Phoenix Rasboras today and one looks weird. It’s much longer and thinner than the others I have and I’m worried it might have something wrong with it. I think it might be some sort of wasting disease? Or could it be that it wasn’t getting enough food with how many were in there?
  2. Safest way to transfer when upgrading tank

    It’s not the suction but the vibrations of the filter I’m worried about. I would get a smaller air pump but I don’t think there is any. Unfortunately if I figured out a way to attach the old filter I wouldn’t be able to run it with the water that low. Would just putting it in there be good...
  3. Safest way to transfer when upgrading tank

    Adding the new water slowly is a great idea! What did you do about the filter with the water half way, did you just have sponge filter? Did you have any not make it?
  4. 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...
  5. Average Neocaridina Cost?

    Oh I see! Nice! So it’s all shrimp?
  6. Average Neocaridina Cost?

    Oh good, for me blue is blue! I’m not too picky about grades of colors, but it is nice to have those darker colors. I don’t know quite sure was a rack or a rack redo is, but if you ever get back into it I’d like to know!
  7. Average Neocaridina Cost?

    Is it the same for blue velvet as it with blue dream? I’m surprised about the yellows, IME they have been the easiest to adapt and to breed. I’m the type that likes the instant colonies. I started off with 20 I think cause I thought that was a good price and wanted to take advantage. He has...
  8. Average Neocaridina Cost?

    $10! Wow. I guess the price is because you only need a few to begin with. I’m lucky with just a straight $5 then. I was thinking it was strange when I saw all cherries the same price with a large collection of varieties since I’ve heard reds are usually the cheapest. I was less surprised with...
  9. 10 Gallon Tank Social Fish for Office - Stocking

    I forgot to mention I definitely don’t want a betta, I’ve only had bad luck with them :(
  10. 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. I’ve brought him home now though and am keeping him here, so I wanted to replace him with something more colorful that won’t want to hide constantly. I was thinking...
  11. 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...
  12. Help White String- Parasite?

    I will if I can, I’ve been keeping an eye out and I haven’t seen another yet. I have a hikari frozen freshwater pack I can use that has greens. I’ve only used it once because I remember the consistency being weird to deal with. One has garlic in it and I saw on another thread that garlic helps...
  13. Help White String- Parasite?

    Tank It’s a 15 gallon that’s been running a year and a half. It has an aqueon quietflow 20 filter and a heater set to 78. My main tank inhabitants are 3 platies, 7 ember tetras, 3 amano shrimp, and 2 nerite snails. Right now it also has 2 honey gouramis, 4 chili rasboras, and 3 Pygmy cories who are...
  14. How Do I Make Adf Jello?

    I like the idea of using tuna juice! Smart
  15. How Do I Make Adf Jello?

    I used to have my adf with a mystery snail and she would eat the snail jello I made. I just bought some baby food but I know some people put veggies in a blender too. I would put it in the microwave for about a minute and then mix in the bloodworms/powdered fishfood/etc, and the unflavored...
  16. 5.5 Gallon For African Dwarf Frog?

    Since it’s producing nitrates, you want it the ammonia and nitrites to go to 0 by the end of the day after adding the ammonia then it’s cycled. Best to see if it does it 2-3 days in a row. Is your frog in it’s own tank while you get the cycle going and adding dr Tim’s? She should be, even if...
  17. 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...
  18. Question Putting Sand Over Gravel

    I don’t have room for anything else. Just as a visual reference this is what the gravel looks like. Nerite snail and amano shrimp for size comparison. This is part of where the dwarf hair grass is, there is another part that is less clumpy and more individual blades, and parts that aren’t...
  19. Help Soap In Tank

    AH. That makes sense, all but one of the cories died, and just two rasboras died. I think it might not have been soap, but definitely something it was cleaned with. I did a very large water change yesterday and will probably do another Monday. I haven’t ditched the driftwood yet because it has...
  20. Question Putting Sand Over Gravel

    No it’s all planted, and I don’t want a just a section since it’s for fish to not get hurt.
