    Quick.... can you clean plant cuttings of snails?

    Theodoxus Fluviatilis - the Ultimate Guide

    That's a great post and thanks for sharing your thoughts. I am interested in these as they seem a good combination between a self sustaining population that can breed in fresh water and being slow breeding enough that you don't get plagues of them like with ramshorns or pond snails.

    Brilliant, thanks! My desk tank is a 25l cube I got from Aquarium Gardens and I am thinking of upgrading to a larger size. It's refreshing to see a tank available in the UK! Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    Aquarium Silicon Mat

    I use that plastic egg crate diffuser, I am not sure that this would spread the load very much at all so I would be worried about point loading 6mm glass like that. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    Neocaridina Blue Dream - Feeding schedule help

    I am probably going to get shot down in flames for this but I don't worry too much about feeding. I have two colonies of red neos and one of PRL Caridina and, when the tanks were quite new ( Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    caridina shrimp

    No, sorry. I installed a small RO system when I started keeping caridina and it was neither expensive nor difficult to install. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    Is a shrimp only tank easier to maintain?

    Other people will have other opinions, that's just what I do, but I can't see the harm if you regularly monitor parameters. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    Is a shrimp only tank easier to maintain?

    I don't. After the tanks are properly established I just top up with RO water as and when. Obviously I still monitor parameters but they stay very stable, Shrimp produce very little waste. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    Is a shrimp only tank easier to maintain?

    Absolutely. I have three tanks and maintenance is really only tidying up the plants and keeping on top of the water. Between the shrimps and a few nerites I have barely any algae so there is very little to do. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    Amano Shrimp Berried - Can the young survive?

    As I understand it, yes. I am not sure if the eggs will even hatch in fresh water. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk
