    You need some surface agitation. Get an airpump and airstone.

    Is it safe and acceptable to use hydrogen peroxide on BGA?

    It might be dead. How can you even tell if it is alive or not. It will either grow or slowly disappear.

    Bristlenose Pleco's ~ Disappearing Never to be Seen Again...

    I had one disappear a few months ago. Never found a body, just gone. I assume he died and was eaten by snails but really have no idea.

    Shrimp missing after adding them?

    You need to do it a bit differently for shrimp. Put them in a container with the water from the bag, slowly drip tank water into the container for at least an hour (or more).

    Shrimp missing after adding them?

    mollies and platys could definitely have eaten them. Shrimp are also pretty good at hiding though also.

    Is it safe and acceptable to use hydrogen peroxide on BGA?

    You can do that but remember you will be crashing your cycle too.

    Is it safe and acceptable to use hydrogen peroxide on BGA?

    I don't think it is safe to use other than spot treating. I would spot treat just a little bit every day to give it a chance to break down. If you get too much in there at one time, I am sure the algae won't be the only thing dying.

    Automated fish feeders

    looks to be unavailable now but I used this one. It worked well and has a place to add an airline so the food stays dry. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08CN6HWNK/?tag=ff0d01-20

    is this ok to run?

    Looks nice! Personally, I would point it towards the front of the tank instead of straight down but that's just me.

    Betta bullying shrimp

    I thought my betta was okay with shrimp until one day I saw him with a shrimp tail hanging out of his mouth...

    Anubias rotting roots

    I trim the roots all the time on my Anubias (all the really long ones). I do always leave about an inch or two. The roots on an Anubias are just to anchor the plant. They do most of their feeding through the leaves.
