  1. I have these…things all over my 10 gallon. I do not know where they came from, what they are or if they’re harmful to my fish or shrimp. Can someone identify them? If they are harmful, how do I get rid of them? It started as just one or two but now they’re EVERYWHERE. thanks for the help!
  2. Thank you so so much!
  3. How often should I feed them? Do I have to worry about the cherry shrimp that’s in there eating them? This is a first for me, I appreciate your help!
  4. I have the co op fry food but I’m scared it’s too big for them, they’re so tiny! Do you think this would work? I don’t know where i would get baby brine shrimp from, unless i can buy it frozen
  5. I very unexpectedly have (what I assume are) fry in my tank and I do not know what to do. This is my first community tank. The ones I was able to catch I moved to a fry net thing I already had in the tank for a pregnant cherry shrimp. my questions are: What do I feed them? They’re so impossibly tiny…I feel like they’re going to starve. I don’t know what they are. They’re either salt and pepper corys or CPDs. Will the shrimp in the net eat the babies? I moved her so her eggs can hatch without the other fish eating the babies right away…. I added a (bad) photo of the ones I was able to catch. Thank you so much!
  6. Hello, first wanted to say I appreciate all the help I’ve been getting! I purchased some frogbit from my LFS, and noticed it has some snails and a lot of snail eggs on it. What’s the most effective way to get rid of these? I’m really trying to avoid a snail infestation. I’ve read that I can soak them in Alum but it won’t kill the eggs, which doesn’t help too much because I can see eggs everywhere. Thank you!
  7. Thank you! I’m worried because I literally JUST started stocking this tank, it had nothing but a mystery snail and one left over shrimp from my last set up. I’ve waited like 6 weeks to put any livestock in and then I found THAT, and these shrimp were expensive! I’ll get a trap and see what happens. I appreciate the help again!
  8. I just bought 6 cherry shrimp from my LSF. The place is lovely, their fish always look fabulous and their tanks are always crystal clear. But when I brought the shrimp home I noticed planaria in the bag. Two that I could see. I netted the shrimp out and didn’t get any of them with the shrimp, but now I’m worried. I’ve never quarantined my shrimp before putting them in to a tank before, so I didn’t. But is this something I should be concerned about? Is it possible I’ve introduced them to my tank even though I didn’t see any in the water after fishing the shrimp out?
  9. Thanks everyone! I glued it to a rock, hopefully I don’t kill it 😅 I appreciate everyone’s help!
  10. Can someone help me ID this plant? I’ve had it for like 6 months and can’t remember what it is. Can it be buried in gravel? Or should it stay above ? thank you!
  11. So you think it would be ok to start with 4-5 salt and pepper corys and they would be OK with either endlers or CPDs? That would be ideal for me!
  12. I was looking into corys, I really like both pygmy and salt n pepper, but I was reading that corys need sand? I have fine gravel but not sand...is that a problem? I had read that pygmy corys tend to occupy both the middle and bottom, would that be a problem with guppies/endlers occupying similar space? Would I do both corys and otocinclus, and how many? I want to make sure everyone is as happy as possible. Sorry for all the questions, thank you! Thank you! I really appreciate the input. Im afraid of overstocking, but if I can do more than one fish species, that would be the ultimate goal. I love CPD's, they're what I was planning on getting in the first place, but one of my local fish stores has some absolutely stunning endlers, and I always have to watch them when I go in there, so now I'm on the fence lol
  13. Hello! I am setting up a 10 gallon tank, and I am very new to the hobby. I have only kept cherry shrimp and bettas in the past (Currently have a 3 gallon shrimp tank and a 5 gallon with a betta and mystery snail). The tank is ready for fish but I am having trouble deciding what to stock it with (I do not have space for a bigger tank, just an FYI). It is fully planted and heated, cycled, has been set up for about 5 weeks now, currently just housing two mystery snails to take care of some of the algae growth on the plants and wood (one will be adopted by someone once I start to add fish). My water is exceptionally hard (I don't really understand what that means but I know this from using test strips). My pH is around 7-7.4, temp is around 80, there is driftwood and a few rocks in the tank and about 7-8 plant varieties as of now. I was planning on adding some cherry shrimp, but they're not a necessity. I was thinking of doing endlers or CPDs...but I guess I'm looking for suggestions and maybe advice? Are either of these suitable for those parameters? I have researched both but I am looking for more real life advice from people that have owned them. Which is more beginner friendly, if either? Thanks!
  14. How many times a day do you feed them? And how many do you have in what size tank, if you don't mind me asking?
  15. Ok first of all your tank is BEAUTIFUL. Secondly, how often do you feed them? Once or twice a day?
