    Coconut Crabs?

    In the wild they naturally feed on garbage men so that one is probably hunting.

    The Tank of Death

    what is "dragon stone"? it isn't something like lava rock that may leach toxins and metals into the tank is it?

    Cory breeding?

    Ah. Well I separated out one with a chewed face just now as well as a messed up green laser (my breeding female %$#@!!!). I'm hoping the abundant plant growth is why my large herd of greens has not been seen in a long time but I fear it is the fowleris. I suspect the hormones from the other corys may be setting them off then.
  4. Sorry for the late reply. Today he had some "Pandoro?", some orange flashes, and some double reds.

    The solution to unwanded shrimps

    I don't want to cull my poor shrimp but the yellows need to have those without stripes go away. The Hoplos insist their tank will be totally safe for the shrimp. The plecos say the same thing The Discus would happily accept culls into their new tank as friends. The puffers say they need friends. My DIY ecosphere can only support 3-4 neos. So that is out. Maybe with a light I could run 4-6? Just keep adding them? None have bred so it is not a permanent ecosphere. Just figure out which fish is most adorable? Corys? Hoplos? Buying another tank is not a solution as that way lies only madness. I can't believe I feel bad bout culling ugly shrimp.

    Cory breeding?

    I have never heard of violent corys. They are all supposed to gentle. Happy little aquarium clowns. My fowleri seem to be. Lots of aggressive chasing to the point of killing other fowleri (I have gone from ~13 to ~6. the population now seems to be stable with each having its own area in the 55. so the attacks seem to have stopped). One was even chewed to bits. 2 were killed by a nitrate spike. They seem to care less about other corys in the tank any pursuit is short. With their own they seem to have issues. Are there aggressive corys or are mine just being abnormal?

    List of fish compatible with shrimp

    I found another weird looking Oto. (no idea about the seller) https://www.azgardens.com/product/otocinclus-algae-eater/
  8. No idea. Cull tanks are a great place to test. Right now I'm seeing what mangosteen leaves do (live tank, not cull). They are like thick leather so I suspect they will last a while. Dead avocado plant leaves were well loved.

    Cat nip leaves

    My avocado plant died and dried out. One day I wondered if the shrimp would like the dried leaves. They did.

    Cherry Shrimp with Ghosts?

    All the Ghost shrimp I have known were jerks. In my 5 gal space bowl experiment 10 Ghosts became 3 very quickly, then 2 then 1. So now I use yellow Neos and they work great now that the ghost problem is gone. This youtube footage shows Ghosts being jerks. I expect your cherrys would become Ghost chow pretty quick. I have had ammanos eat neos. For a mixed tank I'd stick with neos and cards (maybe something else would work and the experts here will list it)

    More missing shrimp

    Bettas think cherry shrimp are tasty. Amannos think cherry shrimp are tasty. I'm going to guess that something "tasty" related happened to them.

    Let me show you my algae

    Tell you what, PM me your address and I will try sending you some to see if it lives. Keep in mind that it is not clean. There is some xmas/java/something else that looks like java, in there as well as some subwassertang. I'll try to clean it up but you may end up growing some other things too. UPDATE: OK setback. leaving the fissidens in a glass container in the living room for months to starve out the hair algae may have done bad things to the fissidens, So I have dumped it in as small tank to see if it comes back. And during an aggressive water add, I knocked some of the algae loose and you can see the discoloration on the drift wood where it's single connection was leaching something out of it. While in the pic it looks like a coating each round part connects to the wood at a single point.

    My Shrimp and Bumblebee Goby tank

    Interesting on the bumblebee gobies. I was always told they like brackish. I know in my teen years I had some other sort of goby ~4" long. Didn't seem to do anything at all but the feeder guppies kept vanishing. Then I looked into the tank once at night and found they are very active at night. I like their lazy attitude. I ran a male and female betta 60gal for a while until an infection nuked it. 2 big HOBs to keep it clean.

    Let me show you my algae

    Is it fissidens fontanus by chance and are you looking to sell any of it? That it is but I'm not interested in selling I'm afraid (no idea how putting live things in the mail works). I'm also trying to cure it of hair algae. I have no idea what the algae over those logs is, it was VERY slow growing for 3 years. It seems to have denser areas in it that are not quite stems. Snails crawl on it but do not seem to eat it. The snails get scraped and thrown in the puffer tank.

    Let me show you my algae

    After 5-7 years trying to grow it it just blew up during the last year. First there was one Don King tuft and I was worried the snails would eat it. then after 2 years there were 2. it seemed to grow ~1/2" per year. This year it exploded and I have it everywhere. Not sure if good? the second pic shows how they start as tufts. It has now spread to my ecocomplete. I may get the furry plant tank without killing any more dwarf hair grass, So as I'm loving this stuff. .. .. Have I made a bad life choice? Yes. I know I have to move my Buce to another tank. I also know I have to figure out what to do with my quart of fissidens now that the algae seems to own all the drift in the tank it was planned for.
