    Confusing ammonia readings🤔

    So I wanted to get an idea of what ammonia is in my aquarium. 20 litre nano cube. I took a reading before a water change that I did today.

    Fish suggestion

    Hi there I have a 20 litre planted dennerle nano cube home to about 20 shrimp. I’m looking for a fish that can be kept solitary. I considered beta Splenda but they can even go after shrimp. Any ideas? I’m looking for something that stands out.

    Anubias gracilis problem??

    hi can anybody advise me on whats happening with the leaves on my Anubias gracilis. I only planted a couple of days ago. I shortened the roots as advised by tropica. I use tropica specialised ferts added evry other day. 🤔

    20l nano cube

    I set up mine up 2 weeks ago. I went for low tech. No co2. Tropica easy care plants in a simple planted theme which are growing well already. I’ve just ordered an Anubias Gracilis to go in there. We’ll get shrimp in about 2 weeks.
