  1. I saw this video and was instantly reminded of this thread. It's a bit large for most tanks I think, but could probably manage in some larger ones.
  2. Not a problem. If it is an asian freshwater leech you might want to keep an eye on those guys though, sounds like they could be a bit troublesome in the shrimp tank you mentioned, or in a tank with snails for that matter. If they are only going after dead stuff then they might be more helpful than harmful, could be you have a nice balance going on and they can get by without causing trouble, or I could always be wrong. Either way, if they've been around for a year and you havent noticed a massacre, sounds like everything's fine, whatever the case. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  3. Another pic of the same https://aquariumscience.org/index.php/10-13-4-aquarium-leeches/
  4. Hmm what do you think of this one? This is Barbonia weberi, the asian freshwater leech. They have that sort of locomotion
  5. Kinda looks like a tubifex worm. I say kinda cause it looks a little chunkier than the ones I've seen in person. There are different kinds though, so maybe.
  6. I see, I didn't know they had need of the pollen, thought it was just a byproduct of their nectar collecting. I'll definitely have to do a deep dive if I decide to set up a hive at some point
  7. Nice. I've considered getting into beekeeping in the past tbh just cause bees are so cool, I have enough to do though as is. I figured there had to be more to the pollen process though cause that stuff sure isn't cheap, even when you cut out the middle man. I definitely wouldn't mind having honeycomb and pollen in my backyard though.
  8. Nice! I get mine from a little farm right up the road, so it's pretty fresh, I cant say it's straight out of the hive though. Maybe next time I take him some eggs I'll inquire about a little pinch of it to try it out.
  9. They do a lot of grazing, yeah. It might not be a problem though. Depends on how much you feed and how many Endler's we're talking about I think
  10. Bee pollen. It's a well known shrimp food, but fish love it as well. Some days my Endler's decide to ignore it, in which case the snails dogpile it
  11. Thought this was pretty neat and figured I'd post it here for you guys. I wont rip off the whole article, but a quick excerpt to give you an idea of what they did, Scientists from the RIKEN Center for Brain Science (CBS) and collaborators in Japan have discovered particular neurons in the brain that monitor whether predictions made by fish actually come true. By making use of a new virtual reality-outfitted aquarium where brain imaging of zebrafish can be done as they learn and navigate through virtual reality cues, researchers found neurons that allow efficient risk avoidance and create a “hazard map” in the brain that allows for escape to safety.

  12. Assuming you're in the US, this is the best deal I was able to find back when I needed some. They sent me quite a bit extra as well. Shipping was on the slow side iirc, but it all got here alive and green. https://www.ebay.com/itm/224517022930
  13. Thanks 😎 There seems to be a lot of different tapes like this out there, and I think they might have slightly different specs. I ended up going with a fairly cheap option on amazon for $5. It's basically duct tape made of pvc without the tear lines. It's a little thicker, enough that you can feel the difference, but it handles more or less the same. https://www.amazon.com/Rbenxia-Textured-Furniture-Beautification-Decoration/dp/B09713KZBP Some of the pics I was finding of similar products really had me nervous lol like this one. That looks like it would split if I tried to hit 90 degrees with it.
  14. Hmm yeah, I wouldn't know either obviously. Doesn't really make any sense to me on the face of it though ngl, but probably best to play it safe.
