    30cm cube opinion poll.

    Yeah that's exactly what I thought. Just seemed incredibly overstocked and cruel. My 15gal Long, is stocked with only a small number of fish more than that 5gallon.

    30cm cube opinion poll.

    Oh yeh my waters fine for shrimp, my other tank has alot, but I wouldn't be adding anything else to my Betta. He's on his own for a reason. He was moves from my community tank, after about 8 months he started getting more and more aggressive and I visibly watched him preying on the shrimp, so I...

    Exactly my thoughts too. Seems crazy to me! Chili's are pretty cool! I was close to getting some for my main tank but chose Harlequins instead

    30cm cube opinion poll.

    I have a 30cm cube, 22l tank, and have it set up for a single Betta. I recently saw this scape on Instagram from a veteran of the hobby, it was the same size tank, and it was stocked with a Betta, and 11 neon tetras aswell as some RCS That seems so crazy to me. Am I right in thinking that is...

    Baby Cory!

    Update on the Baby Cory! Or should I say.. Cories! That's right, I've found another one! Managed to get a better photo of the original one I found - the new one I found is about half the size of this wee fella! You can see how tiny this one is compared to the tail of a RCS poking out at the...

    Baby Cory!

    Thanks for the advice! I usually feed my rasboras a tiny granule mix meant for 'fish with tiny mouths' so maybe hes been munching on whatever maxes it to the substrate and any odd bits of algae. I do a water change every week so hopefully that'll keep him happy n boost his growth! Thanks...

    Baby Cory!

    Yeah as I say I never expected to see any at all. And since it's already grown alot it definitely seems to have done well! So. Pretty happy at that! I'm going with Dr Malcolm.. life uh, finds a way!

    Baby Cory!

    Doing some cleaning on my 15gal tank today, and found to my surprise a tiny baby Cory just swimming about! Id seen my Cories mating n doing their wee dance with one another but never imagined any eggs or would-be fry would ever have survived. Especially having Cories and lots of Rasboras. So...

    I tested again today and the ammonia is back at 0. Perhaps an issue with the dead shrimp I found

    RCS dying

    Ah that's awful! :( The only thing I've added was some plants cut offs from another tank I have. I don't know if that would have caused it as I have shrimp in that tank that are fine

    RCS dying

    Hey guys been a minute since I've been on here but just wanted to ask for some advice. I purchased 10 RCS for my community tank a few months back. They were doing great, or so I thought. Within the past 2 weeks I've noticed a disappearance of most, I e found 3 dead, a 4th literally 5 minutes ago...
