    10 Gallon Tank Sudden, Unknown Death of Peppered Cory, Assisstance Needed

    I have a shrimp tank and added 3 baby peppered corys a year ago, who grew up, have had babies, and the 8 of them do great together in a 10 gallon. It's not the size. I've so far removed 3 babies to a new shrimp tank I'm building. I feed them regular fish food pellets once a day, sometimes Bug...

    Mystery Snails Issues

    Is it stuck to the side, or floating? Mine decide to just float for a day or 2 now and then, I have no idea why. They fill their shells with air, but I believe they know full well how to release it. I love when they're at the top, let go and float slowly to the bottom, they can control that...

    Amano shrimp eating eggs

    It's sad to know they carry those babies only to be born to die, but that's a fact in fresh water. I've never seen that either but it's all about timing. I've seen guppies give birth and gulp their young, I'm sure if she was giving birth, she'd grab and eat them too. As my fish dealer said, "To...

    New guppies glass surfing

    Betting he/she will be happy to help. Now find out from someone here the best way to use a little of that, if you aren't putting it into a HOB filter. I think some people have stuffed some into sponge filters but I never tried that. I buy small sponge filters on Amazon, usually about 9.99 for...

    New guppies glass surfing

    Yes, they are stressed. I don't see any bubblers? A sponge filter would be good for filtering, also providing them oxygen in the water. Plants are good, but yours are young, please don't count on those to filter the water. But they definitely need to be in a cycled tank. At this point you'll...

    This can't be an Amano baby....... Can it?!

    I used to have reds in my 40 gallon and blues in my 20. I have no idea why but after a year they just started disappearing. I was glad I'd saved culls in a 10 gallon. Now I'm setting up a new one for them they don't have to share with other wayward fish. I want to get some culls from someone in...

    Need help with GH and KH

    I'm so happy to see your question and these answers. As I'm starting another new shrimp tank, I wanted to see what mine were. I also use a water softener and for the last 3 years it's all be good using the water from it in my tanks. My Gh is 3 at the tap and 5 in the new tank, and my Kh is 7...

    This can't be an Amano baby....... Can it?!

    I really think it's a red cherry that turned out brown, and those are "culls". Neocaridinas are bred for their color but sometimes revert back to their native color. To continue your line of color, you remove the culls so they don't interbreed. I have a separate cull tank, and as they breed, all...

    This can't be an Amano baby....... Can it?!

    Funny, when my RCS had their first brown culls, I thought the same incredulous thing a few minutes when I saw them! Never expected browns! What a waste to see my female amanos so very pregnant over and over, and know they'll all die. Last week I saw a female very empty and felt sad....again.

    My new 10 gallon shrimp tank build

    I placed a couple orders last night, so within a week I'll have it looking different. In the meantime I put 3 young Peppered Corys in the tank for a little ammonia contribution. My tank is cycled, my numbers are 0 0 5. Now just waiting!

    My new 10 gallon shrimp tank build

    I'm looking at them on the Aquarium Co-op site, think I'll just get them there, and an anumbias. I have 3 petites. But I need to find some rocks, will glue them and some java ferns to them. Yes, the moss is very nice, can see it filling in lots of places. Thanks for the ideas. :)

    My new 10 gallon shrimp tank build

    I know a few but sure not many. I think 80% of the ones I have already. I love Co-op's ferts, but need more tablets in the sand while these get started. Haven't used them in so long, didn't know I was out til tonight. I'll do some shopping, I have time. :)

    My new 10 gallon shrimp tank build

    Thank you! Can you recommend some good plants? I'd like a carpet plant of some sort but don't want something that will completely take over and need to constantly be removed. If the vals grow here like in my larger tank, I'll be removing lots before long. I'm always in there cutting back and...
