    Amano Shrimp Have Bred- Help!

    Thanks for the reply!   Concerning no.5, what is the bare minimum amount of salt you would say these shrimp need to survive? Is it possible to have the biofilter survive small brackish conditions? At what salt point would you need to change to a marine set up? I don't have the money (or space)...

    Anyone Want To Rant? About Anything? I Do.

    1. I hate small talk. I know what the weather is like, your job is boring so don't even bother telling me and certainly don't ask me what mine is as trust me its not anymore interesting than yours. Why are you even talking when you don't even care less about what i say? Enough with the...

    This Week's "off Topic" Topic (21/05/12)

    Hmm...About 90% of the food i eat is home cooked and about 95% of that is cooked by me.

    Angelfish Open Sores Getting Worse

    ^ Cool glad to hear that, wish you the best of luck with the fish- although it certainly doesn't look good right now, with the right meds & care you'll be surprised at what fish can recover from :good: . The main thing though, is if worst comes to worst, not to let it die in the tank if you...

    Red Bellied Piranha Severe Stress Or Worse?

    1. Yes the fishes symptoms due suggest stress however i believe this is more likely due to wter quality problems than just the move. So; 2. Test the water for ammonia, nitrites & nitrates. Ammonia & nitrites should be 0 at all times, nitrates between 1-40. If your stats are different to this...

    Angelfish Open Sores Getting Worse

    1. Yes medications can stress fish out, however there are many things you can do to improve the fishes comfort (increasing airation, keeping tank v.clean etc) however as long as you do not overdose they will not kill the fish (however if the fish has a life threatening disease, untreated this...

    I've been this situation before many years ago. Back then i would have said no to telling the truth, but these days i would say yes. And it was a complicated situation. Here's the story; Many years ago me & my guy used to live on this street in a small Somerset town. Across the street was...

    Plec Does Not Eat On The Glass?

    Pleco's won't eat every type of algae- its better to identify the type of algae and deal with its root cause than to buy a fish and hope it sorts out the problem. This link is good for ID'ing & sorting out algae problems :) ; http://www.theplantedtank.co.uk/algae.htm How long has the pleco...
