    No Bioload = No Water change?

    I have crystal shrimps, Ramshorn snails and chili rasboras. Ramshorn snails are the best cleaners in my fish tank and I do not really feed them, their best part are keeping the glass tank walls ultra clean which makes the planted tank more attractive. So I could say I do not mind making a...

    How to feed chili rasboras properly?

    They have lived for 1 week, so for certain they are eating something or not, it is really difficult to tell. When I throw those micro pellets the filter just shove the pellets into the vanishing air or did the pump suck it away without it being eaten? Or did the pellets drop to the ground and...

    What eat ammonia in shrimp tank besides filter material and aerobic bacteria?

    I have successfully kept cherry shrimp tanks, crystal shrimp tanks and is now going to snail tanks, so I am not talking out of nothing. I did not use a filter, oxygen pump, but they all survived for at least 2 years. Possibly I removed the ammonia via water change which is troublesome, hence I...

    I asked the fish shopkeeper if the metal band from aquatic plants will be toxic to shrimp, he says it is lead and will not rust, but he seems to avoid saying whether it will affects my shrimps. Interestingly I realized my shrimp net also have metallic looking holder, so I went and asked the...

    Remove bladder snails as they take calcium from the water and shrimps will have moulting issues?

    Do zero bioload decreases nitrates and cleans the water back to its original state?

    So let's say I have a shrimp/fish tank. I do water change every 2 weeks, if I transfer the waste water to a fully planted tank with no fish/shrimp, will the planted tank with zero bioload cleans the water? Then I could transfer the clean water from the fully planted tank to the shrimp/fish tank...

    7 more 1.4 gallons shrimp tank or 1 10 gallon shrimp tank

    I am seeing many different varieties of shrimps in my local fish store, and they are pretty much cheaper, even cheaper than the shrimp tanks themselves. One question I have is should I mix them up in one 10 gallon tank? Would they fight? Would they breed undesired shrimps? (I am not interested...
