    Blyxa Japonica help

    So I need a little advice. My blyxa japonica just went and produced flowers. I have read that they do this under severe stress. I just got this last Wednesday. Could it be because I got it a few days prior and it is under stress? Tank size is 6.75 gallons and lights are LEDs with output of 7 watts

    So I just bought a co2 kit and I dont really know how to use this model in particular

    Unfortunately it didnt come with one but I kinda just watch how many bubbles come out from the diffuser before it hits the membrane. About 1 bubble per 2 seconds is what I go for since its just a 7.5 gallon tank

    Pencil babies!

    So i had about 6 pencilfish in a quarantine tub for about a month. Turns out they have been making babies while on quarantine for a month! I only got 4 fry so far and put them into the neon tetra tank as I dont think the neons could eat them

    Fungus, Ick or something else??

    Could be velvet disease. Quarantine the fish and treat with meds

    So I just bought a co2 kit and I dont really know how to use this model in particular

    I kinda need help/a tutorial on how to use it. The model I bought was the ista 0.5l co2 kit that came with no manuals or tutorials. The valves dont even have labels does anyone here have any experience with this co2 regulator?

    Im back(again)

    Thanks for the tips but yeah they are in a somewhat dim tank even if its outdoors. I put in a leaf or two of Indian Almond leaves to ensure the dimness and pH are there

    nerite snails

    If your tank has the algae to feed a small group.why not? Plus in my experience horned nerites dont go out of the tanks while the zebras I had kept disappearing so I recommend the horned nerites

    Snail ID

    Need help with the ID of these snails. Got them from a local plant supplier for free. My guess is they are a rabbit snail or something related to sulawesi snail

    Help A Novice - Why Won't My Plant Grow?

    Add some excel. Java ferns also tend to lose a few leaves before growing new ones. Also they are pretty much almost impossible to kill. Just attach it to a rock or wood using string and you will be ok
