Are those plants blacklisted in some states? That could be the issue maybe? Did you try aquabid?

I've found that when I thaw them first the load just drops on the bottom. The hatchets miss out, the barbs don't get too much and the neons, cories and the bristlenose get it all.
I do thaw...

Over here snow is a rare thing. And I don't think it's the snow that's bad for old cars but rather the copious amounts of salt used on the roads.
I used to know a classic car restorer. When he...
There's enough information on frontosa out there and you already seem to have done some homework on that so I'm not going to go into that. Thinking out loud for the real question......

I'm getting a bit worried. My largest Nannacara hasn't shown itself since the weekend. Small one is also acting a lot calmer than previously. Only thing I did differently a few days before the...
While a pH of 6.6 is low enough to affect the cycle negatively it is a value that would make a lot of commonly kept species extremely happy.
A 10g should be ample space but it still needs to be heated to about 25, 26C and filtered. New water should be treated with conditioner and the filter material should never be replaced all at once,...
Dash of phosphate will help the nitrates drop.
20 is no problem for cherries. And, looking at the picture, I wouldn't worry, some shrimp will make it. none of your fiish are dedicated shrimplet...
Very much so. This lady is bursting with eggs.
Quite a few fish see their world as things to
- mate with
- chase away
So if they are not in a mating mood they'll ignore or chase other fish.
Mine smells watery most of the time, sometimes a bit earthy. It's been running for 2 years now.
Then plant some aquatic mint.

Keep the filter media submerged. Store the live stock in a container with lid. Take some water at least if you need to add new water treat it with conditioner and let it trickle in.
I store my RO water outside and add it as it is as long as it's not freezing.
My technique is to syphon the fresh water in laced with some thawed food. Result is fish think it's raining and you...
I'd put the shrimp on hold until the plants have grown some.
Don't forget that it's not a mammal and has different social needs than us.
Some males on their first and second clutch will briefly pop out now and then in the first few days
An 8ft isn't that big if you remember that it's only 7-8 times the length of the adult fish.
Problem with this is the hit or miss nature. In a messy looking tank with a lot of hiding places this...

Well, your tap is clean, the kno3 dosing isn't the issue. So unless there's something substantially sized rotting in thtere the root tabs are the issue
Either that or a few minutes boil. Not really necessary for terrestrial rocks IMO.

Well it's not your KNO3 dose
Your addition of 2.3 g KNO3 to your 50.0 gal aquarium adds
Don't know those osmocote things, can't find the...

Dutch climate is hard on vintage cars. I've seen perfectly good first generation Mustang come out of the container and 3 years later they're a pile of rust.

Those 1970s trucks used to be quite popular here in certain subcultures. Those and Suburbans and Jeep Wagoneers. Imported from the dryer parts of your country and converted to LPG because of our fuel...
Standard procedure for rocks:
1. rinse well
2. look for brightly coloured bits, that can be a result of minerals you do not necessarily want in your tank
3. Splash with a mild acid (vinegar for...

Then the cories get to do their thing:
But at the end of the day the shrimps get the scraps:

A cube of frozen worms...
First the shrimp smell it and come swimming:
then finally the hatchets catch on
