    Is it time to give up on it?

    So here's the story. About a week (or two, I lost track of time) I grouped with a friend and we ordered some plants from a company and I got 3 dwarf aquarium lily bulbs. One was sprouted from the beginning so I set that down and it is growing fine. The other two, however haven't sprouted yet...

    Sphaerichthys spp. in non acidic water??

    Now as I say this I refer to Sphaerichthys osphromenoides and Sphaerichthys selatanensis. Ever since I obtained some burmese chocolate gouramis, I added these 2 species of chocolate gourami to my bucket list of fish. Doing some research it seems there are only a few places that really detail...

    Is it worth keeping rainbowfish in a tank that is lidless?

    I have a 20 gallon tall tank that I think rainbowfish, specifically pseudomugils (furcata or gertrudae?) and I was wondering how much they jump.

    Neocaridina shrimp. Help with understanding their care.

    I've always been intrigued by shrimp in general. I only have a single amano shrimp so I know a few things about neos. Recently I've been wondering if they would be a good tank addition maybe 6 months into the future for a tank I am setting up. As far as I understand they like stable...
