Fish are Friends, Not Decorations
Hey, my name is Nicole and this blog is mostly dedicated to my favorite hobby, fishkeeping, but lately has become more of a personal blog. If you have any questions about freshwater fish or plant care, feel free to message me!

I may go to my lfs and buy more cherry shrimp. I had a huge colony but I was also dosing ferts in that tank and I only had five left when I tore that tank down :|
I think I had upwards of 50??? I’m so sorry baby scrimpies

Ferts shouldnt hurt them unless you’re dosing copper into the tank. Do you know what your gh is? Too low of gh will make it difficult for shrimp to molt. That’s what killed my first ones :(

I don’t know my gh. But the shrimp I have now are molting like crazy so I doubt it’s that. I was also dosing excel which I’ve heard shrimp are extremely sensitive to!
Currently not dosing anything to the tank they’re in now

So mom doesn’t have any interest in seeing guardians of the galaxy and I really want to see it. So. I’m going to the movies today. Hopefully a friend can go with, but if not I don’t mind seeing it alone

But really I need a geographically convenient boyfriend or girlfriend

Please help! Clara has snapped out of her lethargic followers, but her fins have turned bright red….looks like she has red starting by her gill cover too but it’s hard to tell. She has been quarantined and salt has been added to the QT tank. Abe not showing any signs of this, given a 50% water change just in case. Still has been incredibly hot in the apartment, can’t seem to keep them cool. Water Params were absolutely fine.

This actually seems almost identical to what Bear had a few months ago! her fins turned red and then she got ich and with a lot of patience she got better! I moved her into QT and used Triple Sulfa, plus an airstone to provide some circulation, to treat and then AQ salt to prevent recurring infection. I have no idea what she had, but I used that method and she was better within a couple weeks!

Good luck with Clara, I hope she improves quickly!

Thank you so much. If I may ask, what is triple sulfa?

This! Broad spectrum antibiotic basically. The red streaks could be septicemia which is why I used it to treat Bear. I don’t know if it was, but it very well could have been.

You can buy packets of it at Petsmart!

Please reblog if you wouldn’t act differently around a friend if they came out as bisexual, gay, lesbian, asexual, pansexual, polysexual, or admitted to being trans, agender, genderfluid, or bigender.
