    Can anyone identify this white dust on anubias?

    Hi, I have a lot of tanks. All have been running fine for months. Some heavily planted. 2 planted tanks have just turned upside down and have no idea why. 1 had only green spot algae and I just removed the plant it was affecting before dosing with phosphate to fix this. The second tank had...

    No Electricity Eco Shrimp Tank

    My old shrimp tank ended up getting decommissioned before it has got going as we had an issue with the electrics in the shed. So everything was cleaned and put away for another day. My main tank is doing well, but the number of fish in there means it’s unlikely I’ll get the shrimp population...

    Brachygobius doriae in backwater?

    On seriously fish, it says populations of Brachygobius doriae can be found in blackwater swamps with negligible hardness so I'm wondering if store brought ones can be adjusted to blackwater conditions? Has anyone kept them in blackwater? If you have what was the hardness and the pH? Also if they...

    Sponge Filters

    Hey guys, I've only recently gotten into sponge filters and I'm still learning about them. I have them in a 2, 3 and 10 gallon tank, and I've been going through and cleaning them all out, but for some reason... the 3 gallon's sponge was almost pristinely clean. These have been working for a...

    Fluval Edge 23L

    Hello, I love the look of the Fluval Edge, but I understand it can be a pain to maintain due to accessing the inside of it. Do any of you have a Fluval Edge for your shrimp and how do you get on with it? Obviously I would add a pre-filter sponge to protect the babies.

    remineralizing distilled water or keeping what I have to suit shrimp

    I've decided to rehome my endlers, as I can get the PH where they like it but never the hardness. Shrimp seem to do well in my water...when the endlers aren't terrorizing them...which they have been lately... So, this weekend I'm driving them to a new home and will concentrate on my shrimp and...

    I Want To Start A Nano Reef Sometime This Summer...

    Hey guys I have a lot of freshwater tanks but this summer I wanted to set up a saltwater tank. I have some live rock/dry coral or something that my dad got from florida a long time ago. It's a pretty big piece, and I think it would fit nicely in a 10 gallon. I have never had a saltwater tank...
