    Bladder snail, how to clear out.?

    Are they potentially invasive in your area? If not, I'd just throw them out along with the sand.

    30 Gallon Tank Hillstream loaches and rosy barbs in a planted tank.

    Today a female rosy barb T'Ana has died. It was the one with damaged eye. I guess the infection came back or something. She's been inactive and not eating for 2 days, so I was expecting it. Pity, she had character, I liked her. Interestingly, when I came home, all the adult barbs were freaked...

    For the last week and a bit we had that blissful sunny autumn weather, perfect for a stroll in a forest and appreciating autumnal colours. Lucky me to have had vacation during this time. Now that I'm back to work the weather is slowly getting more cloudy and cold.

    Is this the dreaded bba?

    They missed a comma :D. They meant to say "if it is (BBA), amano shimp would help". However, personally I don't see my Amano shrimp eating any algae ever. All they do is scavenge for food. I think you'd need to stop feeding your fish for the shrimp to do their job.

    Is this the dreaded bba?

    Could you try to focus on the rock better, I really can't tell what I'm looking at.

    30 Gallon Tank Hillstream loaches and rosy barbs in a planted tank.

    It was 1 year anniversary of my tank on the 8th! Today I replenished my ramshorn snails population. It gradually declined in my tank, I think mostly because the barbs keep eating the young. Back when I started a year ago, by the time my tank finished fishless cycling, they were everywhere in the...

    30 Gallon Tank New rabbit snail clumsy and inactive

    IDK what sources you are reading, my sources say "less than 10", which is how it always is in my tank. I was expecting about the same level of activity demonstrated by mystery snails of the same size. But I guess the foot of a rabbit snail is proportionally smaller and not as good at carrying...

    Picture frame glass tank build

    But why..? If you're only using the glass of the frame, then why not buy proper glass for it? If you using the whole frame, with wood or whatever, then it will most definitely leak. If you for some reason want a tank that is framed, just buy/make a proper tank, and glue a frame/frames on it.

    30 Gallon Tank New rabbit snail clumsy and inactive

    So I've got a rabbit snail 2 weeks ago. I picked a small one thinking it will be younger, but now I think it might be small because there's something wrong with it. From day one it wasn't very active. Unlike other aquatic snails, this one is legit slow. And it's also quite clumsy - e.g. all it...

    Tank cleanup has become much more social since the addition of panda garras :D. Unlike barbs, that nibble quite roughly, garras give very gentle fishy kisses :D

    30 Gallon Tank Hillstream loaches and rosy barbs in a planted tank.

    First aquarium cleanup since the purchase of panda garras. Let's just say it got more interesting :D. I had to be careful not to pull them out of the water with my hand. I was worried they might go inside the siphon, being this nosy, but no, they only cheched out its outside, I guess they have...

    No. I think they were always ephemeral in nature.

    It's a curse of knowing about proper fish care - however funny is an aquarium-related meme otherwise, you just cannot unsee the inappropriate tank size :D.

    When I was a child, my mom used to bake nutria with potato kugel filling. They were delicious. Not unlike eating a rabbit, IMO. Unfortunately they are now hard/expensive to get. Crayfish are delicious too (local ones, haven't eaten red ones obviously).

    Today I bought 5 panda garras and one rabbit snail. Being unattentive as I am, I only noticed that there were only 4, not 5 garras in the bag when I brought them home. Since they were pretty expensive, I called the shop and the salesman told me to come back for the 5th garra without any...

    30 Gallon Tank Hillstream loaches and rosy barbs in a planted tank.

    So, after consulting this forum I was informed that my tank isn't good for corys. After some further research I decided to get panda garras. They are definitely not a mainstream fish and not a cheap one too. I only found one place selling them, and got 5 of them today. They are really small now...

    I was supposed to work the whole weekend, but I got sniffles, and the boss came today, saw me all masked and miserable, and was like, eh, let's just not open tomorrow :D. We've been working extra days because one of our colegues have been on sick leave for 2 weeks. So I'm guessing that the boss...
