    What is a breathing bag?

    So, I was looking into why people do drip acclimation for shrimp rather than floating the bag, I came across the term breathing bag. I looked it up and it looks the same as any fish bag. But I read that nonbreathing bags are the standard. How would you tell the difference? I would get shrimp...

    Just got some freshwater clams from the lake

    I don't know much about them, but I do know that they're basically bulletproof cleaners like snails. I am acclimating them just in case. I've heard that they won't die except when opened, and that their cleaning abilities could even replace the need for having a filter. So, I'm excited. But I'm...

    How do you take fish out without putting water in tank?

    I've seen in discussion that you shouldn't add store water to the tank when putting in new fish. I get it, but how would you do that? The net is too big to fit in the bag to only scoop the fish out. I don't understand how you would get the fish out without adding the water they come with. I'd...

    Saltwater Guppies.

    I am experimenting on saltwater Guppies and I thought I would show them off while I work with them.

    Drip Acclimation

    I see people still doing the " floating the bag " in the tank as a acclimation process. I was wondering why it is that more people don't do the drip acclimation process?   I'll never float a bag again after doing the drip. It's so much easier and less stressful on the fish I think. When you...
