  2. Second Time the Charm with Amano Shrimp, I hope

    Freshwater Shrimp
    A few days ago, I've got 4 Amano shrimp to go with the one I think I still have left in my 10g tank, and 4 Ghost Shrimp for my 20g tank, which are about half the size of the grown shrimp that were in there months before. Both were bought to replace some loses from both. The Amano shrimp, I...
  3. Amano Shrimp, Escape Artists

    Freshwater Shrimp
    Well, when I thought I was going to be happy that I found one Amano shrimp out of a trio alive and well, and scary enough, on top of a plant, just peaking out of the water. Unfortunately, as it turned out, it's two buddies I found under the table the tank was on, all dried up, meaning that...
  4. Finding my Amano Shrimp

    Freshwater Shrimp
    You know the one thing annoying about adding snails and shrimp into a fish tank? It's finding the little bums. When I bought my nerite snails and ghost shrimp about a few months ago, at first finding them was a major pain in the butt, but now they are more out going. Recently I bought 3 Amano...
  5. Assassin Snails and Amano Shrimp

    I am getting ready to order some fish for a 10 gallon tank and I have a couple of Assassin Snails and a trio of Amano Shrimp in the cart right now. What I would like to know is will the snail try to eat the shrimp or would they get along okay? This will be the second time I have ordered both...
  6. Hoodini Guppies

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I gotta start somewhere. I've got a 10g long aquarium that had 6 guppys, 6 amanos, 1 assassin snail, and a small population of pond snail and ramshorns. . . All my water parameters sit right in the ideal specs for guppies laid out on this site...
  7. 10 gal Stock. . . Not a Betta

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hi all! I'm new here and looking for some advice. I used to have a beautiful bright red crown tail betta, but he sadly expired after 4 years in my care :( Alas, I'm starting fresh with a brand new 10 gal tank and looking for thoughts on a community tank! I've had 2 bettas now, both of which...
  8. New aquarium... sort of (HELP!)

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I just lost the last fish in my tank to ick yesterday after what I'm guessing was an accidental overdose of Ick-Guard II :sob: . I had 3 amano shrimp in the tank and was able to isolate them to a 2 gallon bowl with water acquired from the fish store. I have completely cleaned the tank top to...
  9. Amanos Jump to Their Doom

    Freshwater Shrimp
    I had a set back in my tank yesterday. It seems that all three of my amano shrimp managed to crawl out of the tank and jump to their demises. I recently moved the entire contents of my tank from my previous 55 gallon tank to a new 48 gallon tank. My shrimp did just fine in my old one and seemed...
