    Where do you get your shrimp from?

    I agree with CooledWhip. I'd suggest going online for best chances, it can cost considerably more but you end up getting healthier and more unique shrimp. The only shrimp i've seen in LPS are ghost shrimp and saltwater shrimp. I know my LFS also has red cherry shrimp.

    Best Betta pellets in UK and holiday feeding.

    Fish can live a spectacular time without feeding, especially if you keep live plants since it can be a source of nutrience. I personally use feeding blocks and remove when i'm home although if it's one betta you should slice it in half or to one quarter to prevent overfeeding.... as for food...

    Guppy gave birth but still looks pregnant could this mean more?

    Hey there, how long has she been giving birth for? Usually guppy give birth to at LEAST 20, any guppies i've owned have given birth to more. i'd say wait a few hours because usually they do stop at intervals. I've seen guppies give birth to 60 fry but it was over a period of 2 hours. Also, if...

    Breeding Tank Journal (Project X)

    Big update; I decided NOT to get WCM because i didn't feel it was fair to put them in such a small tank, i decided to invest in getting a ton of healthy plants and it's going amazingly well. I got 6 and took out most ornaments from my main and put them in and it looks really healthy plus it's...

    Breeding Tank Journal (Project X)

    Hey there, thanks for the info. The tank is fairly small right now and they will be in a school of 3. The filter i used is already cycled anyway but i thought quickstart may just jump boost it. I'm looking more for java moss since it's a hardy plant and thrives well in low light. The tank is...
