    How long should I leave on the air pump?

    I would agree but it never felt warm.

    How long should I leave on the air pump?

    I do have a power filter; I got the air pump for surface agitation. It definitely turned itself off. It's brand new, sucks to hear it's probably faulty.

    How long should I leave on the air pump?

    I don't want it on 24/7 as it creates quite a lot of noise. I wrapped a towel around it to make it quieter, but the noise is noticeable. Every few minutes it turns itself off for a few seconds before coming back on.

    What is a breathing bag?

    All the articles I've read only mentioned doing drip acclimation for shrimp.

    What is a breathing bag?

    So, with a nonbreathing bag does that mean shrimp don't have to be drip acclimated?

    What is a breathing bag?

    So, I was looking into why people do drip acclimation for shrimp rather than floating the bag, I came across the term breathing bag. I looked it up and it looks the same as any fish bag. But I read that nonbreathing bags are the standard. How would you tell the difference? I would get shrimp...

    What is she doing?

    I don't have the betta together, I used to because I wanted to try a community tank. What I'm asking is how I'm supposed to maintain two separate tanks when I only have one type of water.

    They're not guppies. It was platies and mollies. But yes, unfortunately your scenario happened and now they are separated.

    What is she doing?

    I could be reading it wrong; I think I got KH and Gh mixed up, the gh is dark blue. But my test only goes up to 180. So, it could be higher. The damage is already done, I already have these fish so I might as well learn to care for them. I used to have my betta with them, are bettas and...

    What is she doing?

    With the filter, it's been buzzing after I forgot to unplug it in a water change. I cleaned the filter to help it, it stopped being as loud for a while but went back to buzzing. My GH is 120, but I don't know what I'm supposed to do when I have hard water fish in one tank and soft water in...

    What is she doing?

    I just did a water change, but I can do another if it helps.

    What is she doing?

    Water quality checks out as I recently did a water change, low oxygen could be an issue, and if it is I can't fix it until next time I go to the store. I hope it's not disease but there's not any other symptoms. My ph is a little low at 6.5.

    I miss having bottom dwellers

    I want something that'll occupy the bottom. I'm interested in shrimp since they barely have any bio load, but I've also heard they're sensitive. I have livebearers, so if they would eat them, I'd have to get Amano shrimp, which I'm not really interested in since they're not as colorful as other...

    What is she doing?

    Water quality shouldn't be an issue, I just did water change yesterday. I have a filter, but I've recently been having some issues with it. Unless putting the filter up higher would work. I'll look into getting an air stone. If there's anything else, I can do before going to the store let me know.

    What is she doing?

    It almost looks like she's drinking the water. She's not doing it constantly; she'll take a break then go right back to it. I hope she's okay.
