    Shrimp on Back and Twitching

    Okay, that’s really helpful! Thanks so much! I found some old pictures. Another odd thing I noticed is that over the past few months, their coloring changed, they mainly got darker. Is that normal?

    Shrimp on Back and Twitching

    idk if this will help ID these shrimp, but I had a shrimp in my 2.7 gallon betta tank and went to petco and got 2 more. They were displayed as "rainbow" since they had inbred so much you couldn't tell what type they were actually supposed to be (or at least that's what I figured since the pet...

    Fix for Oto stuck in ADF's mouth!

    I've been feeding mine zucchini, is there anything else they might eat? One really likes it but the other two don't seem to as much

    Fix for Oto stuck in ADF's mouth!

    There are 4 plants in the tank, a piece of wood, and 2 little moss circles. The plants aren't well established yet because although the tank is 3 years old, I re-aquascaped 2 months ago including a gravel change. The plants aren't very close to each other and though they're tall, they don't...

    Shrimp on Back and Twitching

    2 of my 4 shrimp have been on their backs and twitching and wiggling their legs. I thought they were having trouble molting or maybe they hadn't been getting enough food since one of the other shrimp is a bit of a pig. The first one started doing this a few days ago, I noticed Friday night. It...

    Fix for Oto stuck in ADF's mouth!

    This morning they are both still looking a little under the weather, the oto more so than the frog. To be fair, he did spend 12+ hours with his head inside someone else's mouth though. The frog's mouth is healing pretty fast, it's almost closed but she's still hiding and we haven't tried feeding...

    Fix for Oto stuck in ADF's mouth!

    Hi All, We know this is not a question - but we wanted to make sure others know about this possible solution. This morning we noticed our ADF had an Oto stuck in its mouth. We tried all the following to get it out to no avail: pulling the fish and frog gently, leaving them alone for 12 hours...
