    Lump on Rasbora head

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. I have 6 that are happily swimming together....more than ever now that I have trimmed my stem plants. Fingers crossed they'll be ok. I've been dosing an anti-bacterial but not the anti-parasite because it contains copper and would kill my nerite snails. I can...

    Lump on Rasbora head

    Morning guys, I picked up 8 Mosquito/Dwarf Rasbora (they were in same tank at LFS) on Saturday. Drip acclimatised for 1.5 hours.

    Predatory amano shrimp

    Woken up to find 2 more barely alive. Ive got to try save the remaining rasbora. Alto I think youre right. In the fishkeeping scene there must be some slight amano hybrids around now. Dont really want them in the tank anymore. Good job I have a 18x12x12 back at my folks somewhere:banghead...

    Predatory amano shrimp

    I have literally just experienced this. My tank (125L) has had only had 10 Amano shrimp for 2 months but today I managed to pick up 8 Mosquito Rasbora. I acclimatised them for 3 hours before adding them to the tank. I turned the lights off for an hour to let them settle then turned it on. Fish...

    First post in over 7 years - Juwel Rio 125

    Hi all, Hope everyone is well. Not posted in a long time. I recently picked the hobby back up because my new role at work doesn't require me to work away anymore. It is just over a month old (planted). Setting it up coincided with covid lockdown therefore there are only 10 Amano Shrimp in...

    Hard Water and phosphate troubles -HELP PLEASE-

    I don't understand. You're adding Mono potassium phosphate and then wondering why you are getting a phosphate reading of 5mgl or more? If you are adding it and you dont want it that high then decrease the dosing rather than adding a remover. There's nothing wrong with having phosphate that high...
