    Bug hunt

    I had hydra in a shrimp only tank and they multiplied like crazy - I had ramshorns in there. As soon as I put the powder in they died and did not come back - I believe it also kills planaria.

    Bug hunt

    Hydra - Not good for baby shrimp or fry. You can buy a pet worming powder that gets rid of them in very small doses and is harmless to shrimp. I cannot for the life of me remember what it is called though! EDIT: Panacur!

    Anyone use tree wood in their tank?

    Pulled it off of a tree in my garden. It was only thin pieces mind, if you were to use a thicker branch I would probably bake it in the oven and then remove the bark and soak for a bit. Like I said I have had no trouble. Hardwoods are generally ok. A few have poisonous sap which can be dangerous.

    Plantsalive.co.uk quality?? inconclusive conslusion.

    Re: Plantsalive.co.uk quality?? Japonica arrived..... I've used them twice in the past, the first lot were good and the second not so good. I guess with plants like crypts it doesn't matter so much as they tend to die off anyway before coming on strong again. They are decent value though in...

    Takashi Amano talks about failure

    I love Amano, he seems like an incredibly intelligent man, but also very philosophical with it. Quite an inspiration.
