    6.5 Gallon Guppy/shrimp Tank

    Cory’s have been in for 2 weeks now and it seems as the one that was swimming weird has gotten better and i haven’t notice the erratic swimming at all. Also the shrimp have been in tank for a week and they have spawned!!!! One female has eggs and I’m pretty sure I witnessed another female in...

    Today aquaman was found dead in the water wisteria :’( Been battling green water lately and have been doing water changes to try and get rid of it. I added an air stone because I was worried about oxygen but maybe it wasn’t enough. Tank is now going to sit idle for a month or so that way I...

    6.5 Gallon Guppy/shrimp Tank

    They are Pygmy Cory’s and won’t get much bigger than an inch or so. Also the tank is 24” long 7-8” wide and 7” tall if I remember correctly (don’t have tape measure around atm).

    Question Should I Still Drip Acclimate?

    Okay so I just went out of town for the weekend and had the opportunity to pick up 10 cherry shrimp for cheap. They had to endure a 3 hr drive back home. I’m not sure if I should still drip acclimate them or just float (temp acclimate) and then just plop them into the tank.

    6.5 Gallon Guppy/shrimp Tank

    The Cory’s are probably staying put in here so this might become a guppy/Cory tank or a Cory/shrimp tank not sure anymore lol. The Cory’s add a lot of personality to the tank and I and most importantly my better half likes them also.

    6.5 Gallon Guppy/shrimp Tank

    Over the weekend I picked up 3 dwarf salt and pepper Cory’s and will hopefully get 3+ more this week or next. One of the Cory’s swims erratically and does swirls then lands back on the floor and acts normal for a few minutes then it starts again. Hopefully it gets better and he doesn’t die :(...

    Had a mini conga line going on in my tank :) Otos lined up on driftwood I watched them for a good couple minutes and they would do their little shake/eating motion and it was funny.

    Black Sand Vs Natural - Opinions & Pics Please?

    I’ve had black sand (can’t remember the brand) in my 55 gallon for over 5 years. The 6.5 I just set up also has black sand. I really like the black sand for freshwater tanks because it makes the fish pop so much more. The 55 gallon is plasti dipped black on the back as well. The 6.5 has a...
