  1. In order for the aquarium filter to process the toxic chemical products of fish and food waste (ammonia and also nitrite) into chemicals that are a lot safer it NEEDS to establish the necessary bacteria; it often takes about a month to complete and is called "cycling". If you add fish into a tank before this cycle process is completed they are exposed to these unprocessed and toxic chemicals and there's a good chance that they can die or become very sick. It's a very common mistake amongst new fish keepers

  4. The neatness is so pleasing to my eyes, very nice. Also torpedo barbs are the bees knees, they look awesome.

  6. What is the bio-load of that cat there? Think my Eheim 2217 will manage one? XD
  7. What material did you use as mesh? Nice setup btw
  8. Why hello there, So initially I bought 12 RCS and placed them in a breeder net in my community tank because I decided I may as well get them and chuck them in there with some hornwort while my 2.5 gallon cycles (should be a week or so). So I bring them home, acclimate them, set up the net etc so now they are in there happy as can be crawling on the sides picking at edible material getting blown around the tank and stuck on the net. Now, I have two concerns, first being would the conditions in the net be fine if there is a good amount of flow going through it? I have heard of people having issues with a build up of ammonia etc causing fungus on the shrimp which isn't too good, however the water appears to have good circulation so I'm not sure if that cancels out the chances. Secondly, three of them are berried! This is good news in that hopefully the population will start quickly however I feel as though the shrimplets will be too small and squeeze past the netting to become delicious fish food. What would you guys suggest I do? I am contemplating using the foot of a stocking over the box since the holes are so fine on them however I don't know if this will compromise the flow so much as to make the water too stagnant and develop a build up of toxic chemicals. So, what are your opinions? Cheers and thank you!
  9. Hello all, Do any of you know what the compatibility is like between Red Cherry Shrimp and: -Black Phantom Tetra -Emperor Tetra Cheers guys, much appreciated
  10. This is sounding promising! What was the population like when you added them and what about now? I imagine the shrimplets are open for consumption because they are just so small. What have you done to counter it so the gain is greater than the loss of shrimp? So many questions haha Also bump for opinions on my stock list at the top!
  11. Thanks for the reply! Are your shrimp afraid with your tetras or are they quite active? Anyone else wanna comment on my setup? I don't trust asking my lfs because their job is to get me to buy as much as possible so you guys gotta help me!
