Pics please. Big schools of small fish always make the tank seem much bigger.

Here are a few of them. They are so fast it's hard to get good pictures. Lately I've been a fan of multiple schools of 5. I also have endlers with them and they all school together.

If those are all going into the same tank expect all or most of the small rasboras to be food for everyone else

Still having problems with my shrimp tank Grrr haven't a clue what is going on.
Checking parameters again, nitrates are 10 which I think is fine but am having a discussion here one person is saying no ammonia and another says there is.
Here's a couple of pic's and hopefully you'll settle this! Attachment 271538Attachment 271540

I would call that 0ppm. Hard to tell though.

Cheers for that 😊

Dying plant material can be a source of nitrates.

You sure you got every piece of your dead shrimp out? Hmm... Can the molting carcass cause ammonia if they don't eat it?

No dying plant, and I removed all of the shrimp, no shell left in.
The tank has been running for 5 weeks now, do you think it's possible that the old filter wasn't large enough for the tank? There is a new filter in the tank as well checked for rotting plant's in there but none. Really confused 😕

10ppm nitrates is fine unless inhabitants are very nitrate sensitive. To me, your ammonia test reads 0ppm. As far as the filter being too small, the bioload from your shrimp and snails is very small. Doubtful that you're not filtering enough.

I've 2 filter's going and planning on leaving the old one running for another month. But yeah my bio load is small and I don't think anyone is overly sensitive to nitrates.
Thanks again. Lesley

The Betta still might eat the chilis and pygmys so just be careful when you add them and watch :)

Do it standing up :)

Do you use buckets?

Stacey W. 05-03-2015 03:46 PM

Well I am going to stand up silly! Yes I use buckets and have 1 tub and it is upstairs. Sucks to be me.

It might just be time to invest in a python.

I know, the truth hurts. Apparently I like doing things the hard way.lol. I just figured I'd purchase one if I got anything bigger then my 55g. I didn't factor in the fact that I would fall on my butt going down the stairs. Oops!
