    Sexing my cherry shrimp

    Yeah, I'm on my phone in portrait mode. That's why I checked my preferences to make sure I had signatures turned on and it was checked. Thanks for posting the pic so I could see it.

    Sexing my cherry shrimp

    :) Great news!!! Thanks for the help everyone! I still might pick up one at LFS it I find another that looks like that one or the pic you shared. Last question. If that clear one is a female and has babies, will all babies turn out with no more red than the mom? It does have red...

    Sexing my cherry shrimp

    What about this guy? This is the one I thought I was getting yesterday when I had the 2 red ones on the leaf. It doesn't come out as often. Could it be a male?

    I checked my preferences and I have it checked to show signatures. However, I don't see yours. This is what I get.

    I'm sorry, but I'm not seeing your signature picture. The only picture I see is a beta.

    Sexing my cherry shrimp

    I have read about telling the sex of cherry shrimp. Of my 5 RCS, in my shrimp only tank (except for 2 small nerite snails), I'm hoping I have at least 1 lucky male. I have a couple picked out I am hoping are males (see pictures). These 2 do not appear to have the large "D" shaped abdomen like...

    Cloudy water from green algae - how to clear up?

    I hope the shrimp breed and don't want the baby shrimp to be eaten so I am moving the neon tetras and galaxy rasbora to the 29 gallon. I had 6 neon tetras and 2 ember tetras and ich wiped them out. I'm done with neon tetras! I don't think they are very hardy. So the 2 will have to hang out...

    Cloudy water from green algae - how to clear up?

    Thanks everyone. There is a window about six feet away from tank. It is on the north side of house and part of the roof sticks over it so it will never have direct sunlight. I also have a 29 gal tank and the water in it is clear, but no algae on glass. The lights on 10 gal are white and blue...

    Cloudy water from green algae - how to clear up?

    I have a cycled 10 gallon with 3 red cherry shrimp, 2 neon tetras, oto, and a galaxy rasbora. Plants are amazon sword, crypt spiralis, jungle val, and crypt wenditi. I let the algae grow on back of tank and one side for the oto. He is fat and happy and won't eat anything else. I have LED...

    I killed my shrimp and don't know how

    Ok, thanks for the info. I was wanting to breed (for enjoyment) the RCS. Maybe not worth trying. Are you if I had a whole 10 gallon full of RCS it would be very easy to accidentally wipe all of them out?

    I killed my shrimp and don't know how

    Maybe. I just don't understand why the smallest one survived and is fine in the treated tank this morning.

    I killed my shrimp and don't know how

    The Safe start is for cycling a tank. So I only added one drop to the 2 liter isolation temp tank. I thought maybe the rocks would get the beneficial bacteria growing in it. I was going to daily partial water change the bottle. I'm thinking I must have crushed them when the gravel slid...

    I killed my shrimp and don't know how

    Thanks, but the shrimp were not in the treated water at the time of their instant death. So that was not the cause.

    I killed my shrimp and don't know how

    I have a 10 gallon. It has ich. I'm treating with Ich-X which isn't supposed to hurt shrimp. However, I thought I would isolate my 3 red cherry shrimp to be safe. I cut a 2 liter bottle and floated in tank. I put roughly 25 pieces of aquarium gravel in the bottom, pea gravel size. I put the...

    Amazon sword semi transparent leaves. Will recover?

    What about the leaf under the word "Facility". See how the tip looks like a leaf skeleton. I cut that part out straight across to where the leaf looks good. So will it continue to grow now or will the whole thing die and I should just cut the whole thing out? Thanks

    Amazon sword semi transparent leaves. Will recover?

    This plant was bought in LFS and they got it locally sourced. Only 2 maybe 3 leaves are this way. One in the pic that is touching the "1" in 51 is one of them. I Didn't realize they grow that fast so it sounds like I should just cut out the bad ones. thanks

    Amazon sword semi transparent leaves. Will recover?

    My Amazon sword has some leaves that you can kind of see though. I added root tabs for first time about 3 days ago. Will those semi transparent leaves recover once they are that way or should I remove them? Thanks

    What is this on snail shell? Injury?

    So do I buy one of those cuttle bones like for birds and break off a small(?) Piece and throw into the tank for the snail to eat on?

    What is this on snail shell? Injury?

    Only one snail, one shrimp, 2 zebra danios, 2 really small sparkling gouramis. My ph is 8.4. I have a well and use soft water. With last water change I started adding a little bit of hard water and will start adding a little more with each water change. I would think that would add calcium to...
