    New shrimpies

    So i just got my first shipment of caridina “chaos” bolts two days ago. These are the first caridinas i’ve ever owned. Unfortunately, they were stuck at the post office over the weekend (nearly 4 extra days). The box was smashed on one side and when i opened it, the water was really warm. Most...

    Nitrates with no nitrites?

    hello, I’m doing a fishless cycle for a 10 gallon that will hopefully have caridina shrimp in it soon. It's been running for a little over a week with a seeded sponge filter, wood, plants, and 1.5 indian almond leaves from my other two 10 gallons. I've been adding fish food for an ammonia source...

    Berried or parasites?

    i bought this neo from petco and it was already berried (or so i thought). now i’m thinking it could be a parasite. the shrimp hides a lot so it’s hard to get any good photos with my phone. after getting it out of the tank, i can see that it’s definitely feathery looking like ellobiopsidae

    10 Gallon Tank Petco mystery shrimp ID

    hello guys, I bought a few shrimp from Petco yesterday and didn't realize that they might not be what they were advertised as until I got home. I couldn't get any sleep until reading every last forum page I could find. According to the pet store, I got 5 or so cherry shrimp, 2 orange bee shrimp...

    Hey ya'll!!

    I've started a new hyper fixation hobby lol. I had fish tanks growing up but obviously wasn't super hands on on the technical aspect of things. I've recently gotten back into it as a 23 y.o. As of right now, I have two 10 gallon freshwater tanks each with 1 betta, 1 peppered cory, and some...
