Hey all, I've not kept shrimp before but would be interested in getting some nice ones - really like the look of the panda and cherry coloured ones and was wondering how they go in tanks with other fish... especially say.. A mid-sized Angel fish and other bottom feeder fish etc. Is there anything I should consider here? I have a tonne of plants in the tank - reckon they'd go OK? Cheers
hey guys i am wondering about a new tank set up. ive had my 60g tank running with 100 feeders for over a month now to cycle the tank properly. last week i added 4 juv altum angles and 2 siamese algae eaters and removed the feeders. next i plan on adding 2 more angels and a betta. now.... some of you may be upset with this but i really want a male. although if i can not find a very peaceful one i will settle with a female ok so do u guys thing this will be acceptable? the tank has lots and lots of hiding placed including driftwood rocks and lots of plants. Please leave some comments and if you have a peaceful male betta for sale on the gold coast please send me a dm.

Hi all, I was browsing my local aquarium store a few days ago and spotted an absolutely gorgeous blue butterfly halfmoon plakat MALE betta. I have a 4ft 180L tropical tank at home containing 4 angels (1 is in a hospital tank recovering from popeye), 3 plecos (each 10cm), about 25 tetras (colombians, black widow, white skirt, penguin, + 6 large rummynose the size of a female betta), and 5 female bettas. I was wondering, in such a big tank with lots and lots of hollow pots and rocks for shelter and tonnes of silk plants, would it be alright to put the plakat male betta in this tank? I already have 3 other male bettas (1 pink butterfly HM, 1 super delta dragon, 1 red butterfly rosetail) all in tanks of their own, so if he has to go in on his own it's not a problem. But I would love to see if he could coexist with this lot first. Please keep in mind that I did NOT buy the plakat male when I saw him and he may have already been sold by now but I would love to know what you all think. Thanks in advance!
This morning I went to feed my fishies I noticed that one of my females has a red spot/s that is visible on both sides (or maybe there is one of each side). She had started clamping (not pin point) about a week ago, straight after birth. It was a longer holding period than usual so I assumed the stress was why she is clamping. She has normal feeding behaviour, but just now she's a bit shy (which is really odd). I don't think it was caused by water parameters as the other grown female, 3 juvies and, 15 fry don't seem to be having adverse effects or showing similar behviour. (plus my cCRS are still alive XD). Params (has been established since March 12): Ammonia: 0-0.25ppm (I was told that using API 0.25 & 0.00 was a close reading and I would have to agree as my tank is a constant 0.25 with no prior worries) Nitrite: 0ppm Nitrate: 5ppm Ph: 7.8 (no worries for the endlers..) Tank mates: Other Endlers of varying age (no full males yet), 5 Tetras, CRS, RCS Would anyone know what's going on with my poor girly? I was given a suggestion that it could be NTDs from my tetra but I got the Tetra in April 15. The Endlers actually came in after them. I did have a tretra I took out because it had a vertical red streak down the middle of it's body that I thought was NTD, but I separated it from the tank in mid-May and it's still alive - but permanently quarantined just in case (poor thing). Also I thought NTD made the body go white? Would the disease appear after that amount of time?
