  1. Was planning on setting up my 75 gal tank as a planted tank this fall. Weather is starting to change fast. What is the success rate of receiving live and healthy shipments of plants and fish in cold weather. (Set up first planted tank this summer.) Currently all shipments I receive, even overnight shipments are taking at least one day longer. I am wondering if I should just wait until spring to set up tank due the the weather, do not want to kill plants or fish.
  2. I currently have 4 Short nosed green shrimp in the 29 gal low light planted guppy tank that has some hair algae. Can I put Amano shrimp in there also or will there be issues.
  3. I have had them in since the beginning of August. They melted as expected, but so far each plant has leaves one inch long, they are smaller than all of my plants foreground plants. I have a low light tank, 29 gal, PH is 8.4 use Aquarium Coop Easy green and root tabs. I have found that all stem plants I have tried to grow die. I am beginning to think the light may be just to low. Cryps grow, Java moss is growing, Sword plant is growing, and Aponogenton Boivinians is growing. I planted Indian Fern Watersprite, but barely growing in the substrate, pieces floating are growing great. First planted tank in 20 plus years of having aquariums.
  4. Yes, it is a planted tank and I am afraid that the cover will block enough light that even the low light plants will have a hard time growing.
  5. With fall coming and colder weather I am questioning whether or not to cover my 20 gal tank. I live in an area with hard water and high lime content which is the reason I do not have a lid on now; everything turns white very quickly. If I cover the tank will I need to purchase a stronger light. Right now I have a Aquarium Co-op Finnix Stingray light on it and it is very low light.
  6. I have had aquariums for 30 plus years. Only African Cichlids; never did any breeding. I Now I have my first planted 29 gal tank. I really have enjoyed watching the plants grow. I have shrimp and guppies in it. I have a empty 75 gal that I plan on setting up this fall/winter as a planted tank. I also have one ten inch long fin Koi and a couple of broad head red minnows in a 230 gal water garden.
  7. Thank you, First fry and I did not want to suck them up.
  8. What is the best way to do water changes so I do not remove any of the fry?
