    Missing cherry shrimps

    Yeah my lid was on but a few times recently I've had decs out for maintenance so I'm thinking they have either jumped or been eaten

    He actually talked me out of a sale lol. I was set on getting some hornswort but following his advice I left with only some fish food (which I needed anyway) My penguin tetra had been shielding away for a few days and after looking at the dead fish seemed to to have any external damage or...

    Ich? Or something else?

    I've been trying to get my ammonia to 0. Always 0.25 or 0.5 no matter how much I change water, cut down food etc. Never gets any higher but has never been 0.

    Ich? Or something else?

    Hi One of my female platys has developed something on her face which resembles a beard.

Her behaviour seems to have changed in...

    I had a biorb when I first started 3 months ago. Quickly realised that they are inadequate. (The wife loved it though) they may be nice to look at but rubbish for fish

    Not a big fan of MTS but I'll just ride with what I've got for now. I think the wife would love an increase in shrimps, as they are her favourite animal in there but with only 5 we see them quite infrequently 😭, I'm hoping they will reproduce cause can't afford to buy any more at moment
