Hi :) Do you emember that shrimp tank I started a while ago ? Well its been up and running for 3 weeks now with 12 red cherry shrimp and 3 betta fry. Well my qeustion is - is it ok to rearrange things like the plants and rocks because at the moment im not happy with my aquascape? And is it ok to move my filter the other side of the tank?
What fin type is he and what is your pH/KH/GH readings
I wouldn't do 100% water changes in a filtered tank-not needed-twice weekly 50% should be enough to maintain water quality
When you use oak leaf they need to be removed and replaced once a week
Are you sure he is not tail biting-make a new thread and post a pic on the main board/forum
Hey Oldfishlady! I just need some advice. Ares' rays are still melting. It's been pretty bad recently. I think sooner or later, all his fins will be melted. I do daily 20% water changes and a 100% every week. He's in a filtered 2.5 gallon. I've already tried oak leaves, but it gets moldy and doesn't seem to work. I have aquarium salt, too, but I'm not using it. Thanks!
I PM'd you some pics......
I don't use just sand only about 1 inch on top of the soil to hold it down-I don't use or need root tabs-but with just sand I would use root tabs. I get my sand at walmart for $4/50# play sand for kids sand box.
When I use kitty litter I mix it 25% litter and 75% soil-if I use peat- I only use a hand full at most dusted on the bottom under the soil
Kitty litter can be a mess when used 100%-you also need to make sure it is just clay and not any of the perfumed type or with any additives or it will kill the fish-the wal-mart red bag brand is what I used-how it is made from one state to another can vary too so look at what is in it
Personally I would stick to dirt or potting soil and only add a handful of the clay kitty litter for the iron.
