Hi! I've just started a YouTube channel, and my first video is of my 8 month old no filter Jarrarium. Nothing in-depth, more about the aesthetics...and the cherry shrimp 🙂
Subscribe if you like it, as I'll be posting more videos of other tanks, updates on tanks etc.
Take a look and let me know what you think! Would be good to get some knowledgeable opinions! Thanks🙂
So some background
My 10g tank has:
1 Cardinia that stowed away in a plant shipment I got
3 Rainbow Paskais
1 Celestial Danio
Crinum Calamistratum (Onion Plant)
Nymphaea Zenkeri (Tiger Lotus)
Bolbitis Heudelotii (Creeping Fern)
Eleocharis sp. Mini (Mini Dwarf Hairgrass )
Micranthemum (Monte Carlo)
A random piece of Subwasstertang
algea but i dont want that
The overall goal of this tank is to be a shrimp tank with the neos and maybe a species of Caridina once I'm a little more experienced. But I have a hard time keeping the neos alive a friend who owns the LFS ive been buying them at recommended i try buying from a local shrimper because his shrimp might be more well suited to the local water than the shrimp he buys from abroad because he thinks its weird that im having a tough time with Neos. So I did just that when i met up with him he told me co2 might be the issue since it makes the water acidic and makes molting hard and it makes the water parameters more unstable so I stopped using Co2 for the time being and the shrimp look healthy. But the issue is I would like to keep using Co2 for the benefits to the plants and because id like to keep the carpet ive been working on.
Temp: 74.5 F/ 23.6 C
Ph: Between 6 and 6.4 (im bad at colors) but its yellow (API Test)
Kh: 4 drops the chat says 4 degrees 71 PPM
Gh: 6 drops the chart says 6 degrees 107 PPM
TDS: Waiting on a meter from amazon.
Lights are on between 4 PM and 9:30 PM for those who don't do the military time. Bellow are the spectral percentages of light if this helps anyone.
Any advice on how and if I should add Co2?
I've had these snails in my tank for over a year and I don't know what kind they are. They're incredibly hardy and unknowingly got them attached to some plants I got at petsmart. If anyone can ID them please help me! I live these guys and they're the only snails that have survived living with my goldfish.
Ello, I'm Andrew, I mostly joined this forum out of curiosity and to ask the question about preserving my crayfish moult, but thought I'd introduce myself.
I have a tank with a blue crayfish, Sawyer. He's big guy, and he's got a lot of personality. He's in the tank with four fish tank mates, all of which don't bother him at all, and are all very sweet fish. I'm not certain of the species of the fish, though, the guy that was getting rid of them didn't even know what he had in his tank.
I'll post some photos of my big guy for you all. I'd add shrimp to my tank, but there's already a nice balance where Sawyer's not eating anyone, and I don't wish to mess it up, you know?
Nice to meet you all. xx
Hi all. I'm a newbie. I'm keeping a 90 litre tank with cherry shrimp and daphnia together. I'm feeding them spirulina and commercial shrimp food.
Does anyone know what else I should be feeding them? Anyone else have this mix of tankmates?
