I've seen the nannacara squeeze themselves in silly tiny space if they think there's a wiggler in there. I suspect they may be quite successful in keeping the shrimp down.
Do wonder when...

Thanks Texan! Photography is my other big hobby. And with both I tend to persevere until I meet my own high standards.
Also, sitting with the camera on a tripod in front of my tank is a good...
Why am I suddenly reminded of that silly betta planter project? Hm, must be my own paranoia.
Anyway... I kind of like the idea but I don't see the problem you're trying to solve. Plastic bags...

but lovely fish. Friendly and good natured all the time

The cories will try to eat anything that falls to the bottom. They lack the hardware to tackle a sprout.
The nannacara are...
Replacing the gravel should help.
i'd still advice you to get some kind of hardness test though

They are. And they're settling in nicely. Seems that the shopkeepers claim that they are captive bred are valid, i've seen them take pellet food.
Have to buy a flowerpot soon, tie some moss to it...
not often you get the chance on any forum to report a moderator's post :wink:
Your fish community is going to be bloody murder at the bottom with that "shark"
I don't quite get why you're testing ph and not hardness.
The rise in pH indicates to me that i's likely that...
He's also a decent writer and basically a very nice person who cares about freshwater habitats
That's a bit of an understatement. :ssmile:
He will also be judging that russian biotope contest in December, always good for inspiration

Now my new guests are slowly becoming a bit more bolder. What scares me sometimes is how flexible they are, they can and often do squeeze themselves into and trough very small spaces and they have...

First of, a new tank shot. Last weekend together with the Mrs. I did a really serious pruning job and I hooked up the new JBL e401 filter.
We now have the colour differences back we had in the...

They lack a bit of sharpness. But, with a bit of luck, more tomorrow.

Yeah... I had an issue some time ago with something internal that just wouldn't go away until I threw this stuff at it. Perked up the whole tank, especially the cories.
There's also pranzi thingy...

It's primarely anti-flagelate. They've also had my standard wormer, which I keep forgetting the name.

:ssmile: yes. Although these do have a scary habit of playing dead when they've been netted.
The loaches and the shrimp will manage to avoid it. Once it grows cherry barbs are likely to become a snack

They looked good and I'm home again after a business trip to Sweden so I released them from quarantine. And lost them.
I've also installed a bigger filter on the tank and done some very serious...
Do they sell vacation feeding blocks?
What's with that focus on pH? And why is this a problem?
Both plans can work. You can cut runners as soon as the plantlet is big enough to plant.

I think you had some good ich recommendations already. As to fungus, can't help you there, I hardly ever see it and the last time I did on an infected wound a pint of strong catappa tea solved it in...

For farmed fish I'm not too sure about throwing too many chemicals at them. Especially the asian fish farms already use so much that anything those fish carry will be resistent.
Also, if you stock...
Sharing where in the world you are and something about your water source wowuld help.
1. Stop messing with ph affecting products!
2. Sounds to me like your source water might be contaminated. I'd...
