    Does anyone have any ideas on ghost shrimp and breeding? I have read the articles on the internet and they all pretty much say the same thing...kinda needing some personal experiences. How many eggs can one female ghost shrimp lay? Do you really need brackish water? When do the eggs get...

They themselves are perfectly clear, but some of them have this... what looks like white coiled up string. I can take some pictures if you'd like to see. Not...

    Okay, so I've been having serious guppy issues. Luckily I've been keeping notes as I do water changes and such, though I've seemed to lose interest in proper note keeping. So here's what I have, though the exact dates may be off. I started my fish tank on 10/10/07. I bought 2 fish that passed...

    I have a 3 month old freshwater tank. It's a 9 gallon biube, planted tank with 7 guppies. I noticed a small snail on the log one day about 2 months ago, but I never saw it again so I figured something had killed it. The other day, however, I saw about 40 little snails crawling EVERYWHERE! I...

    my brother just started a freshwater aquarium and he just bought 2 fish from walmart to add. The fish were not labeled at walmart, so we have no clue what they are. They are yellow with black spots and a white belly and i think they may be green spotted puffer fish, which seems unlikely coming...

    so we finally got around to setting up one of the 10 gallon tanks, i was kinda thinking it would be for our female guppy, and her possible coming babies.. so the question is should we put her in there alone? or get her another female? or should i maybe put a few corys in the tank with her...

    A guy I work with just bought a new betta fish. He said that they got him a nice 2.5 gallon tank set up. He made sure he treated the water before he put the betta in. They also bought some ghost shrimp and some betta approved plants to place in the aquarium. The betta was fine but about 36-48...

    they seem easy to take care of, but its a hit or miss for me what kind of water do they prefer, brackish?
