Re: 50 Litre (10/11 Gallon) Tank Stock Help #1
Hi
As you were planning on having shrimps you could consider a all invertebrate tank, there is a lot of interesting creatures you can have in your tank, just make sure you don't mix predators and prey. Shrimp can be easy targets for meat eaters however Thai micro crabs are very small and would be unlikely to go for large shrimps. there is also a wide variety of snails that are good for keeping the algae levels down but some can make a lot of waste as well.

If you are set on fish though here is a good article on the top ten fish for the ten gallon tank;

new neon tetras and a new problem #2
So I brought a school of 6 new neon tetras on Saturday I was getting ready to let them out of their acclimatised bag into their new home when I noticed that 3 of them had completely lost all the red on their bodies whilst the other 3 hadn't I figured they might be more stressed than the others or they might have a disease, so instead I put them in my quarantine tank, they are eating and schooling together but the 3 tetras have yet to regain their red. Any ideas?

Re: Tank Cycling but Algae growing #3
It would probably be fine to use algae remover but if you plan on get algae nibblers when you stock the tank there's no harm in growing it now. Hope that helps :)

Thia micro crabs #4
I recently put two crabs into my tank (shop couldn't find anymore when I went to pick them up) they're pretty small and had just moulted their shells, I'm interested if anyone else had experience with them as I haven't seen them since they went in and was wondering if there were any signs of them being there that I could look for.
Thanks :)

Re: Moss slowly killing off my plant! #5
Hi my tank is a sand substrate and though it is fishless I do have a large number of snails that I would have expected them to eat the algae

Re: What snail is this?? #6
If I had to hazard a guess I'd say it looks like a rams horn snail. I have attached a photo of one below. Hope that helps

Acclimatising #7
I recently found a different way of acclimatising your new fish and I was wondering if anyone had heard of it or used it and had any thoughts on it?

Here is a link to the article

Re: Moss slowly killing off my plant! #8
hi sorry should have put algae oops. my tank is fishless at the moment due to a accident with a friend and the tank heater. there is just a few snails in there now but they wont touch the stuff which grows over everything, cant get a picture right now but it just seems like the run of the mill green algae but then it gets really long until i scrape it off everything then its only a short time before its growing back.

Thanks for the suggestion my tank is too small for a pleco (35 litres)though I was considering a smaller catfish species.when I eventually restock

oh and my tank stats
GH 180
KH 240
pH 7.0
no2 0
no3 0

Moss slowly killing off my plant! #9
My tank has had a Anubias in it for almost a year and a half now and it was growing steadily, then something changed and I started getting moss growing on the tank wall which didn't bother me until it began growing on the plant coating its leaves, I tried scrapping it off the leaves to let the plant get some light but it grows back to quickly to keep up with and I don't want to damage my plant any more than necessary by cleaning it.
Does anyone have any idea how to get a control on it?
