    Best liquid fertilizer?

    I did cut off I think about 3/4 on an inch off of every stem. I didn't do it though in relation to the nodes. So I should cut all of them 1/2 an inch below the first node I see? 2 Nerite snails but that's it (besides the betta)

    Best liquid fertilizer?

    They're not fully melting it's just kind of like the stem is disappearing. It's not turning brown though and the leaves are still stiff. I'll post a picture. I'm thinking I'll cut off about an inch further than where it's melting and add the fertilizer. I've also read that it may need extra...

    Best liquid fertilizer?

    Are there any that you'd recommend that I could get faster? Because these stems (2 so far) are really melting quickly. Do you think Seachem Flourish would work? Just thinking because I'm going to go to petsmart later and they sell it there

    Best liquid fertilizer?

    I currently have API root tabs in my tank (5 gallon tank dimensions 10"L x 10"W). There's two in the substrate right now that I added about 2 weeks ago. I just got some ludwigia (not 100% sure on exact type) and some of the stems are already melting from the bottom up. I've read that they take...

    To lid, or not to lid?

    yes lid. I've had fish jump before, all kinds, mollies, guppies, bettas (no surprise with that one lol), etc. Luckily I was there to put them back in but yeah always have a lid.

    Betta fins not regrowing

    I would put the temp back up to around 79º, if they're too cold their immune system gets compromised. I would also add tannins through indian almond leaves or driftwood, etc. Keep up with the frequent water changes.

    Dwarf Bettas

    Did you breed them with professionally bred bettas? Or like pet store bettas?

    Plant stems just start disappearing - Why is this happening?

    Does anyone know why this is happening? I’ve had these same plants before and I lost all of them bc of this. It’s like the stems just start disappearing from the bottom up. I put roots tabs in about 2 weeks ago to try to help but I think they were too far gone. I just got the plants in the...

    Keeping shrimp from escaping

    I didn’t end up getting any. 1: I think I need to do a little more research 2: there was a dead shrimp that the other shrimp were eating 3: they were being kept with a few fish and 4: they were kinda expensive. But thank you all for all of your advice I really appreciate it!!! When I do decide...

    yeah that's what I was seeing while I was researching after they escaped haha. Hopefully I'll have more luck this time

    Keeping shrimp from escaping

    Yeah I did notice a moult after one week of them being in there, so I bet that was it. I have some salvinia for floaters so I'll probably keep the water level low like you do. What's the best way of acclimating them? Last time I floated them and added my tank water to their water for a little...

    Keeping shrimp from escaping

    I feel like I may not have acclimated them well enough and they were stressed. Except the first one vanished after 1 week and the second one after 2 weeks so idk for sure what was the reason. I'll be monitoring the parameters extra close though since it seems that shrimp are much more sensitive...

    Keeping shrimp from escaping

    I'm likely going to get more shrimp for my tank today but last time I had shrimp (amano) they escaped. I'm thinking I'll get cherry shrimp this time for a pop of color but I want to do whatever I can to prevent them from escaping. I have a lid but it has a gap between the lid and the walls...

    Shrimp Quarantine?

    Yeah I was thinking the same about the filter thing. I never put any LFS water in the tank either so I think it’ll be fine.

    Shrimp Quarantine?

    I'll have to check if the shrimp are kept with fish when I go tomorrow. What should I do if they are kept with fish?

    Shrimp Quarantine?

    I think I’m going to get some more shrimp for my betta tank tomorrow. (Hopefully they don’t escape this time, I’m going to acclimate for longer). But do I need to quarantine them? Because idk if they can spread stuff to the fish since they’re shrimp. I don’t have a full quarantine setup, I have...

    Aquascape suggestions?

    Hi! I just finished a fish in cycle on a 5.5 gallon. It was actually pretty easy. I used about double the dose of seachem prime so that all of the nitrites, nitrates, and ammonia wouldn't be so toxic. I also did 20% daily water changes and tested my water daily too. As long as you keep up with...

    Want To Buy Top Fin 3 White LED Light Part

    Is this what you're looking for? If so I think we could work that out . It came when I got a used tank but I got a mew light for that tank. It still works 100%.

    5 Gallon Tank Help -- Fin Rot and Self Fin-Biting? Best way to treat?

    I ordered the bug bites off of amazon so that was super easy. If you do get driftwood definitely boil it first. I didn't boil it first lol and in turn had a HUGE outbreak of biofilm and brown algae. But the driftwood really did release a lot of tannins so that is a great way to get tannins...

    5 Gallon Tank Help -- Fin Rot and Self Fin-Biting? Best way to treat?

    Thank you! I kind of feel bad for him though because his fins are SO LONG now and therefore very heavy for him to haul around . I used driftwood to get all of the tannins. His water conditions when he was with his previous owner were terrible, I ended up finding him because I was looking for a...
