    What are these?

    It doesn’t appear to be “live”. It looks bleached. I hope I’m wrong but I think they sold you ”dead” rock as live. Here’s an example of what typical live rock looks like.

    Could really use some assistance

    As you weren’t aware of the cycling, you may not know that your beneficial bacteria grow on surfaces. While most of us want to look at a “clean” tank, I would suggest you leave your filter and decorations as they are until your tank is stable. Mostly your filter. If it is very dirty, then rinse...

    What are these?

    The “rocks“ with what look like Barnacles to you are actually the skeletal remains of coral. Unless there’s been some new technology to live rock, those just look like rock. I see no life on them at all. The green color is simply algae growth. Live rock usually has some color to it. Sometimes...

    Can bettas eat boiled eggs?

    It will probably not hurt him but it will foul your water very fast. The result of the water being fouled could then hurt your fish. Maybe a live blood worm as a treat would be better?

    Shrimp fry!

    Hi all! Just wanted to share some pics of my new shrimp fry. I think these are from my golden bee/Snow White shrimp. I know the green babaulti also was berried but the adults are hard to find so I’m guessing the fry are just about impossible, lol. These little guys are sooo tiny! I’m loving...

    Stocking suggestions for a 7 gallon tank

I currently have 10 of these chili Rasbora along with many different species of Caridina shrimp which love soft water. If you heavily plant your tank you can start adding your...

    Need advice before I ruin a good thing

    I’ve noticed if I did more than 30% water changes my shrimp either die(2 so far) or act odd immediately after. I match temperature exactly and de-chlorinate. My tank is only 7 gallons so im thinking its just too much volume for my shrimp to adapt. My tap water is around +7ph and my tank runs...
