    How should I set up my shrimp tank?

    So thats the tank set up but the sponge filters are removed. The dennerle filter is super quiet you can't hear a thing at least for now. On one of the photos you can see how many things it had caught in 4 days. They stay on the baby shrimp attachment so I guess baby shrimp should be fine? The...

    Fish Dissapearing

    The first 3 dies shortly after I got them I know it wasnt the shops fault if they have been starved but the breeders as the shop actually takes care of their fish. Many times when I went to the shop they were feeding them or cleaning the tanks they also have a quarantine room where all the fish...

    Fish Dissapearing

    There is algae forming in the tank cause there is always loads behing the heater where they cant reach so I think they eat all the algae that forms on glass. I do have driftwood and I do give them algae wafers however I never saw them eating it. Maybe the other ones didnt have enough food and...

    How should I set up my shrimp tank?

    I don't think the filter itself is super safe for baby shrimp but you can get the babyprotect attachment and it should be fine I guess Like it looks like it just has a sponge inside so it could be working just like a sponge filter. And I have noticed that this company has many shrimp products...
