  1. Can anyone give me some nano fish recommendations that are semi-shrimp friendly? I realize anything I choose is likely to eat some babies, and am ok with this since my colony is established. I got some phoenix rasbora the other day, and lost 4/5 within 24hours. I think I did not acclimate them well enough? pH 7.4, heavily planted 10 gallon.
  2. Wondering what you guys like to feed your tiny nano fish! I have a dozen chili rasboras, and I have tried several foods for them: Xtreme Nano Pellets are too big (they constantly spit them out; I wouldn't consider this a nano fish food despite the name). Sera Micron is too small (it just floats on the surface and makes a mess, and it's really annoying to get it out of the bottle...I would not buy it again!). BBS is a bit hit (no surprise there) Hikari Fancy Guppy food they also love (these are tinier than the Xtreme Nano) Hikari freeze-dried tubifex worms (they do eat these...but not that exuberantly; main problems are that tiny pieces of a cube don't stick to the aquarium glass like a full cube will, and this food floats and the chilis don't prefer getting their food from the surface) Hikari frozen bloodworms (again, they kinda like these but they have to be manually pulverized and they tend to sink too quickly to be practical) I want to try Hikari Micro Pellets next. And I also need to get more fish that will eat all these foods I bought, LOL. 🤣 FWIW, here I'm considering nano fish to be fish that are under 3/4" or 2cm. I also keep licorice gouramis and I don't consider those nano fish. They only eat BBS, but that's a different story (spoiled little micro-predators 🤣😆 ).
  3. I have an idea and I am looking for guidance as if it is a good idea or not. This will be my 6th tank and I am looking to do something a little bit different. I have recently gotten a new 60g tank with stand and a large cannister filter. I am curious to the idea of stocking this decent sized tank with a massive amount of nano/micro freshwater fish and ornamental shrimp obviously being heavily planted. Is this a good idea? I haven't really seen any forum posts anywhere about nano fish in anything larger than a 29g tank. Stocking Ideas so far: Chili Rasbora, CPD, Kubotai, Ember Tetra, Green Neon Tetra, Black Neon Tetra, WCMM, & Yellow Neocaridina. Should be quite the rainbow effect of colors going on. I am worried about trying Endler's and accidentally getting just one female and being saturated with livebearers. Pygmy Sunfish maybe? Killifish or halfbeaks? Are there any other ideas or suggestions? I would like to do Scarlett Badis but know that wouldn't end well for the shrimp, I have a lot of really good lfs that can pretty much order anything so any suggestions is greatly appreciated!
  4. I recently setup a 7.5 gallon tank with a nice read chamber for loads of media for my grandmother. She has a eye disease and has very poor vision. She wants me to out something in the tank I can breed if possible. I currently have the tank planted and cycling. I am wanting some feedback on ideas for sticking the tank from the community. She needs vibrant colored fish the larger the better. I will be going there weekly to care for it so no crazy bio loads that require lots of water changes. I am considering a pair of honey gourami's. I know they typically require a larger tank but I think I can make it work. Appreciate any ideas .
  5. After months trying to get the fish I want, importing some, quarantine and rescaping so many times, I am pretty happy with the current results. 15 gallons fluval flex (careful if you pick small fish/jumping fish. I keep finding some in the filter compartment despite using their little plastic clips and fill them with sponge. One of my Clown killifish got stuck and died in it.) Current population : 1m, 2f Clown killifish (will add 5 more soon) Around 10-12 Chili Rasboras 14 Green neon tetra (they are not shy, it’s just awesome to watch them) 3 cherry shrimps, 1 yellow shrimps 3 nerite snails.
  6. I have a tank with ember tetras and cherry shrimp. I wanted to see if there are any suggestions to get the fish fed better. Foods tend to stay stuck to the surface or get down to the bottom fairly quickly. Suggestions are welcome. Xtreme Nano and Fluval Bug Bites for small fish work decently for my ember tetras. I like to smash them in between my fingers a bit to try to get them smaller. Some of the pieces will inevitably still be too large, but the shrimp will get them off the floor. Is Aquarium Coop's fry food any better? My concern is whether too small would stay floating on top. I do have a sponge filter, and the bubbles typically knock down most of the pieces with the two foods I mentioned. If not, the shrimp hang upside down and skim the surface. Cleanup is never an issue, but I'd like to get more to the fish.
  7. What is your top 3 favorite nano fish? Can’t wait to see what all of you think!
  8. Does anyone have any experience breeding pea puffers?
  9. I'm looking for yellow fish that are community oriented and appropriate for a 10 g tank. Photos of, and the names, lemon tetra and long fin golden zebra danio would appear to fit the requirements, but reality does not meet these descriptors, with the depth of yellow in these fish actually quite pale. This experience has raised my skepticism of the relationship of photos, possibly shot under special conditions (and digitally "perfected"?), to day-to-day observation, as well as how accurate the names truly reflect the coloring of the fish. Any suggestions?
  10. Hello! I am looking to start breeding some fish for fun in addition to cherries. The 16 gallon tank already has some ember tetras and some Pygmy corys. Any recommendations for nano fish that are fairly simple to breed? I am fairly on top of my water changes and have extra filtration to accommodate for the extra waste. I added a picture for reference! And I’ve been thinking of doing CPD’s?
  11. Hello! I have a 16 gallon with a school of Ember Tetras, and a school of Pygmy Corries. I would like another small schooling fish. Any suggestions? Preferably a non orange/ red color?
  12. Planning out the next tank. Which always seems to be the case. lol. I'm thinking a heavily planted with mostly crypts. With a large school of both coryadoras hasbrosus and chili rasboras. Maybe some amino shrimp and a pair of bolivian rams. I'm looking for thoughts on how much trouble I will be in if the rams decide to spawn. Is it a case of enough hiding spots it would likely be okay, must move the rams out when they breed or is this just very likely to not work out? I have other tanks so there is always a backup plan but I try to avoid creating problems if I do not need to. Here goes the unanswerable question as I know the answer is depends on how much upkeep you want to do but if it were you setting this up what size schools of the cory's and rasboras would you shoot for?
