    Bacter AE

    yes they are Neo's, blue dreams. Now my community tanks have ottos my shrimp only tank is just shrimp. My question isn't on the efficacy of Bacter that I am pretty confident has done a good job. It is with using it in a community tank. I suspect it would be fine just wasn't sure if anyone...

    Bacter AE

    I have been using this in my shrimp only tank with great results seems to increase survivability of the babies. Normally what i do is move my shrimp from this tank to my other community tanks over time. Now i do have lots of hiding places in my community tanks but never really consider shrimp...

    Why are Shrimp out of stock

    No I placed a order at live aquaria the day before this started to blow up and pretty much all were in stock. I got the delay notice and went to check and all were out of stock. I would think the online retailers would put a notice if they were shut down due to restrictions but they are taking...

    Why are Shrimp out of stock

    No I have not looked on ebay I was just checking the online retailers LiveAquaria, TheShrimpTank etc. I was more just curious as I could not see how Covid could affect shrimp breeding but not tropical fish.

    Are rainbow fish schooling fish?

    My water would be fine as it is closer to the softer end then acidic but the schooling is what stopped me from getting them.

    Are rainbow fish schooling fish?

    Nitrogen cycle "new fish syndrome" question

    I have some java fern and Anubis plants in it. I didn't really think anyone could have a real answer I appreciate the advice. I just hear Ammonia so often but really this wasn't a nitrogen cycle issue I don't think but more of the tetra issue. I didn't quarantine these fish since the tank...

    Nitrogen cycle "new fish syndrome" question

    By same water I mean same source not from my tank of course. Our local city water and then the Prime to condition it. Also had Frit Zyme Bacteria that I added before as well as the old floss from my tank into the HOB filter to jump start it
