    New Tanganyikan Tank - Stock Suggestions

    Thanks for the advice.  So in a nutshell, fill the tank, just tap water and bicarb, and weekly 25-50% water changes, and the water conditions will be good.  What about the high Nitrate?

    Bamboo Shrimp Playing Dead

    Thanks for that, he has found a spot in the corner of the tank under the filter, so I have covered the outside area to give him some peace and darkness. It really doesn't look very good but I am holding out for this miracle recovery that I read some where else

    Lol no its definitely the shrimp. He will move quite quick if provoked but will then land on his back and pretend to be dead again.
