    What shrimps can be kept together?

    I have a 37 gallon tank and idk what to do with it! I’m thinking maybe getting a bunch of shrimp? If I did what ones can be kept together? I’d love to have a bunch of different colored shrimps. Also what can I house with them? And are green rasboras compatible?

    I need help ASAP!

    Yesterday I did a very stupid thing and add algae fix to my flowerhorns tank. Within 30 mins he was sitting at the bottom and looked very lethargic so I did a 75% water change. He’s still very lethargic and barely moving and super swollen. He won’t eat. Idk what to do. I’m about to do another...

    I’ve had my flowerhorn for about three weeks. He’s only about 6 inches so he’s still very young. Yesterday I noticed on his face (and only his face) he has some black marks??? Is this just coming in as part of his pattern or is something wrong? All my water parameters are good. Ph 7.6 temp 84...

    moss question

    so I am rescaping my 90 gallon tank as I am not happy with how it is now. I was at petsmart yesterday grabbing some plants and saw only ONE cup (its actually just a small circle) of what was labeled "assorted moss" and I bought it. It was the only one they had and I went to other petsmarts in...

    Any suggestions?

    If I grabbed my friends filter media and placed in mine could that help? My issue is that I wasn’t looking to buy a fish but I ran by the most beautiful flowerhorn I had ever seen in my life. The fish store allowed me to purchase it and place on hold but only for a week. So I don’t know what to...

    flowerhorn food?

    So I just bought a flowerhorn and pick him up within the week. What should I feed him? I do not care about the size of the hump on his head, but I would like something that could help his color. Right now he has BRIGHT colors and I LOVE it so much. Thanks in advance for suggestions!
