    So I have a good batch of RCS going in my heavily planted 10gallon tank. I want to try to selectively breed some of these shrimp cause even though the oldest shrimplets are only a week and a half it is very apparent that some of the females are much more red than others. I have a 30gallon...

    Freshwater Refugium Questions

    I really want to act on an idea I thought I had originated but have seen them done very similar to what I want to after some research. I want to build my own plant bed next to my 29g planted tank. It would be a wood box basically built around a plastic box or possibly just a 10g or 20long...

    What I Got Today (Fish, Plants, and Driftwood)

    Today, I did some shopping and I got 3 new Acei Cichlids. My Kenyi hybrid about their same size did his usual shimmer of intimidation at all 3 when they were first put in the tank. He literally chased all three shimmering violently in front of them. It had me worried the first time he did...

    Jewel Cichlid acting abnormal

    My Jewel Cichlid, I've had for about a year, has been acting abnormal lately. He has had a few scrapes on his head and some fin damage. I assumed it was aggression since he is with a tank of 12 Mbunas. I have been observing him for the last few days and he stays near the top of the tank and...
