    I tested again today and the ammonia is back at 0. Perhaps an issue with the dead shrimp I found

    RCS dying

    Ah that's awful! :( The only thing I've added was some plants cut offs from another tank I have. I don't know if that would have caused it as I have shrimp in that tank that are fine

    RCS dying

    Hey guys been a minute since I've been on here but just wanted to ask for some advice. I purchased 10 RCS for my community tank a few months back. They were doing great, or so I thought. Within the past 2 weeks I've noticed a disappearance of most, I e found 3 dead, a 4th literally 5 minutes ago...

    Identify this fish?

    Just bought some extra Harlequin Rasbora for my tank and noticed this little guy in with them. It's alot more slender than the rest, more silver in colour and it's markings are totally different, but any help identifying would be great!

    So since I had to removed my Betta from my community tank as she was becoming more and more aggressive, she's now got her own tank just for her A little 22L Aquaone nano tank.

    Stockcheck!

    Thanks Byron! Il have a think about what to do. I like the idea of the dwarf rasbora. They're tiny just like the cherry shrimp so maybe don't add too much to the bioload like cherries but I definitely don't want to feel like I'm overstocking. Il probably do one or the other. Any recommendation...

    Stockcheck!

    So I had to remove my Betta from my community tank as she started to get more and more aggressive recently. Fine for over 6 months but the past couple weeks she's changed. Saw her attack a few shrimp in quick succession and that was her out. She's now in her own 25l tank and I think will be...

    New 1gal Nano Scape!

    Yeah haha! Is just a tiny airstone to help move the water around alittle, since it's such a small volume of water its doing a good job of circulating it so far anyway.

    New 1gal Nano Scape!

    If I can yeah, was thinking potentially cherry shrimp. Not sure how many I would be able to have in it though, if any? It's a cold water tank as it's abit too small n oddly shaped to add a heater I think

    One month on!

    Well I seem to be losing the battle with BGA recently. Covers my hairgrass and I'm constantly picking it out. Lights have always been on a 24 hours full spectrum from night, dawn, full and dusk but I have now put them on a timer so that light is only on for 7 hours to see if that helps. I...

    Changing to Sponge filter?

    Since my tanks quite shallow I had to cut the tube alittle to be just under the water line.. is this looking ok? As I say there doesn't seem to be much of a flow around the tank. If not would removing the tube help or hinder even more? Sorry, I'm pretty new to these filters! If there isn't...
