    Want To Sell Red Root Floaters/salvinia Minima

    **Please read carefully!** I am testing the waters (unintended pun) on selling some plants I have an abundance of. Almost one year ago I purchased some Red Root Floaters and more recently some Salvinia Minima and they have taken over. The salvinia is spread out between my 20 gallon long and my...

    20 Gallon Long Wild Betta Tank

    So about 3 weeks ago I finally built a stand for the 20 gallon long I picked up during petcos dollar per gallon sale and filled it up. I swapped over some driftwood from the 9g and put substrate in it Friday. Sunday I finally added plants and the fish. Substrate is eco-complete and a sponge...

    9g Fluval Flex Rcs Tank

    Would anyone have any suggestions on how I could make a Fluval Flex shrimp-proof? The back compartments that hold the filter media and pump use grates for the intake that would surely suck up some babies if not the adults themselves. I'd be apprehensive about using net to cover the clip on...

    Dwarf Lettuce Doing Well

    So I started a 20g long almost 2 weeks ago and moved the plants over on the day I set it up. The uh.. "dwarf" lettuce has been absolutely loving it even though I haven't had any ferts added yet. The plant itself is about as big as my hand and the roots almost the length of my forearm and the...

    Seeding Sponge Filter

    Today is finally the day I'll be able to set up my 20g long! We have the first coat of paint drying on the DIY stand and the tank is full to check for leaks. I've got an air pump and sponge filter both suitable for up to 40g. Now my question is, since I'd like to move my betta from his 9g to...

    Saving Eggs From Dead Berried Female

    Before I left for work this morning I saw one of my shrimp looked a little too still but it was holding onto the moss tree upside down so I decided to leave it be. Came home from work and saw that it had fallen off onto it's back right under where it was hanging and dead. Unfortunately it was...

    Id This Fish?

    So I work at a powersports shop that services PWCs over most other types of vehicles and today I was surprised to see that a customer had dropped off their watercraft with a fish swimming around in the foot well after having made a 15min or so drive down the highway. I collected about a gallon...

    Planaria Treatment

    I've recently discovered planaria in my shrimp tank and am finding it difficult to find an exact process on treating with fenbendazole. I wanted to get planaria zero but it would come from Hong Kong and I've got a berried shrimp so I can't afford to wait. Does anyone have any success with this...

    Important Cherry Shrimp Can't Upright Themselves

    This morning I woke up with a strong feeling to check on my shrimp and this is what I found.. One of the shrimp in my main tank seemed like it was beginning to molt so I grabbed my camera having never witnessed it happening. After about 45 second it just didn't seem to be the case as the shrimp...

    Funny Longest Anacharis?

    In my experience of keeping anacharis I've managed to grow some pretty long strands keeping them floating. This most recent one I tried to get a picture of while I've had at least one or 2 grow longer upwards of 4 feet , this one was definitely top 3 at a solid 2 feet plus. What's the longest...

    Ellobiopsidae Treatment Journal

    I recently purchased some RCS to restock a tank that had lost a few since starting that build, after a couple days one of them was showing ellobiopsidae. It has been difficult for me to find information and a cure or treatment but thankfully @richie.p suggested another thread with this link...

    Ellobiopsidae?

    So I had 3 shrimp left from the original 6 I bought back in January plus a maturing shrimplet getting rather large. I went to my LFS last weekend (about a week to a week and a half ago) and picked up 4 new ones to make a total of 7 adults. Most if not all of them were females and berried which...

    Awesome Diy Build

    This is not my video or my build.. I just happened to come across this on YouTube and wanted to share because I think it is incredibly awesome and I really like all of the work this person put into making this. Thoughts? Also, has anyone seen the tank Foo the Flowerhorn made for their betta...

    Baby Betta "rescue"

    A few weeks ago I had a visit to Petco and wrote about the baby bettas they had for sale sitting in their own filth just down the isle from the combination of moldy and dried out plant cultures.. well today I brought one home! Initially I went to price some tanks due to my 1.6 apparently being...

    Question Sae In 10g (re-home?)

    So a while back I had purchased 2 SAEs for my 10 gallon to address some algae and add some character/variety. Since then I've also kept amano shrimp in that tank which have been doing very well so no more algae.. But I'm beginning to have concerns about the SAE and their size. I understand they...

    Treating Ro Water

    With my recent 3 gallon shrimp tank setup I have begun keeping RO water treated with Salty Shrimp GH/KG+ and will be starting the transition this weekend through water changes. So now that it has been prepared for the shrimp in terms of remineralizing the water should I be concerned about the...

    My Visit To Petco

    So today was the first day in many years, long enough that I could not tell you the last time I went, that I stepped foot in Petco. I was looking for plants to redo a tank and expanding my options outside of my usual LFS. My initial thought walking in was how big the store and selection was...

    Biotope Rescape

    I have been considering for a while now about rescaping my 9g Fluval Flex and just before the weekend started researching biotope setups for my betta with little to no bottom for ease of maintenance. Thinking some sort of leaf litter or maybe just some large rocks and driftwood to fill the...

    Oxygen Tabs Vs. Air Pump

    Just reading through the forums here on a slow day at work and came across a post referencing oxygen tabs being used during a power outage and made me wonder... would oxygen tabs be a reliable source of oxygen for a tank without an air pump? I didn't even know they were a thing so I had to...

    Question Not Feeding Enough?

    I've been noticing my female betta is significantly smaller then my males. Now I know by nature this is normal but she almost seems malnourished. My typical feeding schedule is once a day after work with 1 of 3 options. Frozen Brine Shrimp, Frozen Daphnia, or Bug Bites Betta Formula. I never...
