    Shrimp Vorticella suddenly gone?

    Hi there! I have a Bloody Mary colony that’s been established for about 6 months. In July I bought more from the same source because I had only girls and wanted to breed them. A few days later, they were presenting with what I thought was vorticella. After doing a lot of research and talking...

    HI all! Going to be a bit of a long post so I can explain everything but any help or suggestions are very appreciated! I'm getting into shrimp breeding FINALLY. I've been doing research for about a year and a half and was able to get two colonies from someone who was moving. They each have...

    Dwarf Crays + Rodi

    I have a cycled 10 gallon aquarium that currently houses 2 otocinclus catfish, a few cherry shrimp, 4 amano shrimp, and a bunch of pest snails. I'm going to be moving the cherry shrimp into a different tank once I get it cycled but afterwards I was thinking about getting a couple of dwarf...

    Crayfish + Plants Question

    HI all! I've kept a blue crayfish before (she was actually my first ever aquatic pet!) but I didn't know much then and I didn't even try to keep any live plants with her. I know crayfish are generally not plant safe but I just wanted to ask and see if there are any plants that anyone knows of...

    Pool Filter Sand For Shrimp Breeding Tanks

    Just wanted to ask and see what other people's opinions of this are. I'm going to be breeding shrimp hopefully in the near future but I'm having trouble deciding which way to go for the substrate. Right now I'm going to be starting with Neocaridina species. I've heard that certain kinds of...

    Switching To Rodi Water

    Was finally able to get an RODI system in to start using for my tanks. Particularly my Cherry Shrimp tank since my water isn't that good no matter what I seem to do. I have a remineralizer and everything already but I'm just wondering on what the best method is to switch the tank water over to...

    Help!! Quick Setup Problem

    A couple weeks ago I placed an order for 50 cherry shrimp to go into my fully cycled, planted 10 gallon aquarium I've had setup since November 2017. They acclimated just fine and I've only had a couple of problems pop up. I got a surprise second order for free a few days later but wasn't...

    Sponge Filter Problem

    I have 4 tanks that use sponge filters and at first I loved the filters but now they're getting on my nerves. I understand that every once in a while I need to clean them out since they will get clogged. But the sponge filters I have have been "clogged" so frequently that I'm not sure that's the...

    Water Test Results Freaking Me Out!!

    I was doing my maintenance on my tanks today and was also doing water tests on all of them. The particular tank in question is a 10 gallon tank that houses 18 very small amano shrimp along with some pest snails. It's a bit of a story so I hope this all makes sense. I bought the amanos...

    Algae Won't Go Away

    I've got a 10 gallon, pretty heavily planted tank. Lights are on only 6 hrs every day, the light is raised as well. I've got 10 Kubotai/Neon Green Rasboras, 4 oto cats, 1 dwarf crayfish, and now dwarf crayfish babies! The only thing that has a bioload that I can even detect are the oto cats. I...
