Hi to all fish nerds,

This thread is created for all fish lovers to share and discuss everything from fresh water to brackish water to salt water, small fish to medium fish to monster fish.

This thread is also created to post update on local LFS and stockings of various watery creatures and aquarium equipment.

Do keep the thread civil and dont break any hardwarezone rules.

So Fish nerds, remember to keep your hands wet!

(This thread is not for fish tank with mermaid inside.)

i tried my hands at a planted shrimp tank, but it failed. plants did not spread sideways but spread upwards despite trimming and the shrimps just keep dying instead of breeding. did proper cycling and washing of equipment already but still fail

temperature issue? shrimps thrive with cooler water.

First thing. Dont give up and try to learn more before attempting again.

If your carpet plant spreads upward, it is usually due to insufficient light and or CO2. If you can increase both light and CO2 then the carpet will grow low.

Proper nitrogen cycling is important for water quality.

I keep a planted tank and a pleco tank.

and a shrimp tank in my office.
A pleco tank means only pleco inside? What pleco are you keeping?

Most people keep pleco as part of clean-up crew in the tank.
