  1. @Guppysnail thanks that’s a great idea! In your picture, have you used duct tape to seal the gloves?
  2. @Ken @darkG @Guppysnail @Tihshho @Scott P. @Colu i really appreciate everyone’s thoughts and ideas. I decided to order a glass trap and will use it for the six days I have before leaving. And I am going to fast the tank that entire time. i will report back on the success of the planaria glass trap, but I must say, I am trying to figure out a way to get the trap out of the tank without picking it up and placing my finger over the holes. the more I see these worms, the more creeped out I am becoming. I don’t mind a lot of things, but typically like to observe, rather than touch very small critters. any thoughts on removing these traps? I was considering using 2 shrimp nets doubled up and bleaching the heck out of them to both kill the planaria and clean the nets. Other ideas?
  3. @KaitieG That’s great news! How many of each do you have in your tank?
  4. @Guppysnail Thanks for letting me know what your experiences have been with the glass trap. Do you think that since I have just started seeing the planaria that the population of them are small or have they overrun the tank?
  5. @Colu I thought Panacur C was shrimp safe. Do you know?
  6. @Guppysnail have you have good experiences with the glass traps?
  7. Thank you! That seems right in line with what I read. For some reason I thought I heard a long YouTube video where Cory mentioning that planaria weren’t necessarily a problem in a planted tank. At first I wasn’t too worried, but I have new shrimp hatching every few days days/weeks and I don’t anything to happen to them. I do feed this tank heavily since I have about 12 Pygmy corys, 5 Venezuelan corys and only 4 nano rasboras. I have searching for more chili rasboras to add to the tank but no one has them. Plus 50 or more shrimp. with so many bottom feeders, but only 4 very small fish, I am not sure how to exactly make sure everyone is getting enough food. I feed usually 2 foods once a day Fish flakes and insect bites, or frozen daphnia and hikari shrimp pellets, or freeze dried tubifex worms and golden pearls so I try to give the nano fish something, but the bottom feeders will eat anything and it’s hard to make sure they both get enough. Plus I am leaving for almost 2 weeks soon and was going to increase feeding them and fast them while I was gone Any thoughts on feeding? TIA
  8. Hi all, soon I will be setting up a 75 gallon planted tank with nano fish. I love dwarf chain loaches and am looking forward to finally having a large school of them. But I also have 5 Venezuelan corys in a smallish 20 long and I feel they need more space, plus I would love to see if they might breed in the 75. Both of these species mostly inhabit the bottom of the tank, although the dwarf chain loaches tend to use the whole water column. can I have a good sized school of each that will be happy in the same 75 gallon? TIA!

  10. Hi everyone, Two nights ago I saw a weird worm like creature on my driftwood. I did some research and thought maybe it was planaria. The next day, knowing what characteristics to look for found several more and yes they are definitely planaria. 20 long planted tank and the water changes based on stable water chemistry, I do one about every 2 weeks. I don’t gravel vac much at all to leave the mulm for the plants. so, since I have breeding shrimp in the tank what should I do about the planaria? Thanks so much!
  11. Any advice on a good quality macro lens for an iPhone 11 Pro? I bought one for my older iPhone and i dropped it on the driveway. Screen cracked immediately. The lens is brand new, never even got a chance to use it. 😕 Also my 2 tanks, soon to be replaced with one 75 gallon and keeping just the 20 long, are in a bright southern exposure with a ton of natural light I don’t have room for a fish room and I like my tanks in my living space. I will be posting a question in the algae section in the next few days. But there has to be a way without darkening the room. when is the best time of the day to take pictures? There are so many reflections, the pictures are terrible any ideas?
  12. Hi Jason, I have been going through your tank updates on this thread and have a few questions on your dirted tanks. How deep is the dirt and then the depth of your cap? Also, it looks like you have several red crypts in some different tanks. I can I’d them if you don’t know the ones I am referring to. What are they? I really enjoyed reading through a bunch of your pages. Cheers, Nanci
  13. Hi all, I searched through posts for information on adding photos to posts and profiles, but did not find any I want to start adding photos and start tank journals, but cannot find any guidelines for size and when I tried to add one as my profile picture it was upside down and I couldn’t see a way to rotate it. Looking forward to getting answers! TIA Nanci
  14. Anyone know when Cory is leaving and when he will be back? Thanks!
