  1. Hi everyone. I recently rescaped my shrimp tank and added a Matten filter. The Matten filter is made from black reticulated foam with a PPI of 30, there is no flame retardant treatment applied to this foam, some clean PVC and an airstone. I drained out the tank while keeping my shrimp in a bucket with a heater and an air stone along with my old sponge filter. I re-scape the tank and installed a Matten filter. I refilled the tank back up with the old tank water plus 30% new RO water. I took the heater out of the bucket and put it back in the tank and started to re-add
  2. Hey all, hope everyone is doing well. About 2 weeks ago I started up my second shrimp tank. The tank is currently going through a fishless cycle. There is a massive population of detritius worms, and it gets worse every day. There is no fish or shrimp to create waste so I'm assuming they're thriving off of something in my ADA Aquasoil. The tank still has a long time to cycle as the ADA required the first week of tank set up to consist of huge daily water changes to reduce cloudyness. I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to get rid of or at least reduce the nu
  3. Thank you so much for your reply to me. My tank is almost three months old now and I have just come to live with the little things all over my glass and rocks. Out of the 20 shrimp I've gotten of all different varieties of neo shrimp, only 2 have passed away so I have come to believe that whatever this is, is harmless. Nothing seems to be bothered by it, and I believe my Oto catfish are even eating it. My water levels are near perfect and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. This is my first time getting into this hobby and I'm absolutely loving it. Thanks again for the reply.
  4. A few weeks ago I started my very first shrimp tank. I started noticing a bunch of small white dandelion looking growths all over the glass and filter of my tank. They're so small you can hardly see them with your eyes unless you're looking very closely. They're attached by a small filiment, and extend into a white parashoot/dandelion fluff that moves in the waters current. There is thousands of them. I redid my tanks substrate (due to having way too much) and decided to take that time to rub it all off. A few days after getting everything set back up, they're back. My amanos and red cherries
