>Nerite snail died in my tank randomly

Last time I checked water (~2 weeks ago because it's a mature tank) it was perfect. It was floating yesterday, Googling told me sometimes they do that, didn't smell awful when I puled it out... still was this morning and I came home to where i could even smell it waling near the tank.

Did like a 75% water change - anything else I need to do for my betta?

So I'm gonna actually do some "scaping" to get more depth in the tank and make things more visually appealing

I was thinking about moving the wood either to the left or right and having one of the swords be behind it. And I think I'm going to probably double the substrate height at the back and try to have it slope down some

Any advice or opinions on what to do, or possible additions welcome. I would really like an arching horizontal piece of wood but I haven't found that piece yet.

I got a small bucephalandra today so I'll have to figure out where to move and adjust things to accommodate that. I was thinking if I moved the right sword back and put the driftwood at the right, I could have the buce growing where the driftwood currently sits.

I have a strong feeling that due to root tabs I should move everything to my 5 gallon temporarily before attempting any of this. The driftwood has a slate base and will cause a plowing effect when I slide it around.

Shrimp losses have ended due to GH=5. Dosing phosphorous has stopped the appearance of new green spot algae but now green hair algae is growing on the heater suction cups. I guess I will just stop target feeding the shrimp

I was thinking just the tetras, some shrimp (3-5?), and pleco or something to keep the glass clean. Cories could be good as well.

>>2839803
don't put cories, rummies stay near the very bottom. If you put cories the bottom half of the tank will appear overly crowded
>>
>>2839802
It shouldn't be making any sound. You may have to clear particulate out if the impeller again.

Also having the lid on obviously means it always makes a rattling sound, best to go without until someone makes a 3d printed rubber gasket for it or something.

I was under the impression that tetras were calm and would basically leave the other fish alone. Didn't realize they could hassle the shrimps.

No smaller tetra will harass neos. I have six embers and while they are very territorial around the other fish I have never seen one bother a neocaridina.

He was very active until about a week ago, and now when he sleeps, he doesn't pull his shell in as much as he was. He also only slowly pulls it in it I prod him a bit, where as before he would tuck it in very quickly. Also his active time has been cut almost in half.

I keep the water pretty clean cause small tank.

Besides what the danios eat, he gets spinach, blanched cucumber, or boiled broccoli at least once a week, but I try to aim for twice a week.

I also asked the lady at the pet shop about it, and she said her snail breeder gives hers banana, so I just dropped a tiny piece in there.

Oh, and he also get's a tiny sliver of a Tum twice a month.

I'm rather annoyed with the staff at my local fish shop now (in private I mean, haven't actually complained to them). When I was in High School I bought goldfish (never ever owned fish before) and I thought I did enough research to have a pretty good set up. Like I already knew from the get-go to have a tank with a filter instead of a bowl, and I had the tank set up a week before I put the fish in because it's supposed to help develop the water or something, and I made sure to use Tap Water Conditioner and do weekly water changes and didn't overfeed them (staff told me you only need to feed them every two days and not daily, is that correct?). But no matter what I did to take care of them they all died. I couldn't keep the PH level down.

Turns out Goldfish are supposed to have a lot of space each, a lot more than I thought. I had two attempts at keeping them and the first time I had two comets (plus two snails and a mussel) and the second attempt which was several months after the first group died I had two comets and a shubunkin. Apparently a single goldfish requires 20 gallons of water, and an addition 10 for every extra goldfish. 20 gallons is 75 litres, and my tank was only 30-something litres. It wasn't even fit for one goldfish, but those idiots at the shop told me it was suitable for two or three.

I wish I had known back then. I would have gotten a bigger tank or a fish more suitable for that size tank instead.

Goldfish produce a lot of waste, which raise the PH. It's harder to maintain PH level in a smaller tank.

The PH can't go too high, dumbass. Goldfish are supposed to live in a PH of 7 but my PH was higher despite weekly water changes. And before you follow up with some other dumbass strawman by water change I mean only replacing an inch-height. I wasn't emptying half the tank every time.

This isn't even an argument. Fancy goldfish are less hardy.

If you get pumps rather than a siphon or install a drain, water changes can be down within an hour. Cleaning the glass is pretty easy, you can get a giant algae magnet or a long scrubby pad.

What are your plans for the tank? Only thing about big tanks is the scaping becomes a much harder task. Finding the right size hardscape becomes quite difficult

I knew about getting a soft substrate because rough ones can wear down their whiskers but I thought about small soft pebbles rather than sand. So they like digging into sand then? Maybe I'd get sand then.

you can keep them on gravel/pebbles just fine, you just won't get the digging behavior and gill sifting behavior, which I feel is a big miss out when you're watching them.

It's ok to get different kinds, they will still loosely hang out together and do just fine. If you get the same species they do hang out in much tighter groups and I find they do seem to prefer swimming with the same species in mixed species tanks. Wether it's 'cruel' to deprive them of that is your choice really

Why does java fern do this? It's doing it on mine too
>>
>>2840124
Maybe I could get a mix and have sand in some parts and pebbles in others Or is it a bad idea to have multiple substrates in a single tank?

Well if they still hang around each other, then that's fine. I just didn't want them to be lonely. Like I said, I'd prefer getting different types so I can tell them apart easily. I'd get a bronze, peppered and one or two other kinds.

Also are they carnivorous, herbivorous or omnivores? Do they just eat flakes or do I give them something else?
>>

I sort of do want it, I like the look of it. I live in a really swampy region so I see it a lot outside. But I'm not sure I want it in this aquarium. I was going to buy a 10 gallon tank purely for cultivating plants and I could put it in there.

Couldn't I scoop up a handful from one of the ponds/rivers in my area and keep that though? Or would it be too contaminated with harmful bacteria?

>Or is it a bad idea to have multiple substrates in a single tank?
if you have them side by side, they tend to just get mixed overtime defeating the purpose of having two substrates in your case. If you do want two substrates you wan't to make some sort of divider, with rocks, woods, or plastic sheet to keep the two apart. Plastic knitting canvas is a cheap way to divide the substrate.

If you are going to get a big mix, I would really try to get a few more. maybe two bronze, two peppered, etc. total number of cories should be a nice 6+

They are omnivores. You want to feed a quality flake or pellet with occasionally frozen/freeze dried food thrown in, such as brine shrimp. Really make sure it's quality food, check the back of the fish food, you'll see an ingredients list.

Just want to make sure, you know about cycling and etc?
>>
>>2840136
Well I'd want to get some other fish in the tank besides cories so I don't want to get too many. How much space would you say a cory needs per fish?

>Just want to make sure, you know about cycling and etc?
Partially. I haven't had a tank in years so I'd be doing much more research before I even think of buying a new one. Something to do with developing bacteria that breaks down nitrates, right?
>>

>>2840136
Tried Tetra Safe Start once, I don't think it did anything. Tried adding fish flakes to decay, don't think it did anything. I bought test strips and I didn't buy ammonia strips but currently it reads that everything is fine minus the Nitrites, which there are reading at max levels and the Nitrates, which are in the same light pink zone but still present.

>>2840134
In my experience, I've had them in both and they were fine so long as they were acclimated.

I don't think my snail like it dipping below 65 F though.

>how much space
really hard to answer, but I usually say 10 bronze cories can go in a 20 gallon long without making crowded. It's important you think in terms of floor space rather than gallons.

Go to top of the thread and check out the links under "cycling" if you are not sure about what it is. tetra safe start and similar products are a meme. save your money.

What size tank you gonna get? or don't have one yet?
>>
>>2840147
Floor space is something to consider but I was also thinking in gallons because I wanted other fish in there too.

>What size tank you gonna get? or don't have one yet?
I have my old tank sitting in the shed but it's only 30 litres so I plan on getting a bigger tank. Maybe a 70-80 litre one.

I might sell the 30L tank because it was difficult to control PH levels with and I don't know what you could even keep in something that small without trouble besides a Betta, a fish I've never really been interested in.

>30L tank
I am this person >>2840051 btw

If you are looking for a fish you can name, I would just get a gourami. Ditch the 30L, it's nowhere big enough for cories. the 70L is fine as long as it has the big footprint. shoot for something like 70 cm x 30cm worth of area. Stop trying to control your pH, it's not important to keep parameter "xyx" in "abc". Keeping it steady and out of the extremes is much more important. Goldfish and nearly every other fish in the hobby have been bred in captivity and kept in parametres different from their natural water for multiple generations. Your fish will not care or be affected if pH is 1 or 2 points off 7.

I just don't understand if it's not the PH why the goldfish died. I didn't overfeed them, the temperature was fine, I changed the carbon in the filter at least every two weeks (might have been weekly or monthly, can't remember). I did a gravel siphon once. I just don't understand what went wrong.

The longest living goldfish I had was three months. I was pretty said when he died. Put him in a little cardboard box and buried him in the garden.

look up cycling a fish tank before you ever buy any fish again

i sure hope carbon wasn't the only thing in your filter if you were changing it every week or two weeks or month.

they died because they were in a 30L and you weren't aware of cycling. Just do more research and you'll be good. The research you did about the goldfish is still false btw, which is why I called you out on it. Stay clear of websites not completely oriented towards fish keeping and cross check info, there is a lot of misinformation out there

Filter change was regular, yes.
>>
>>2840167
>I just don't understand if it's not the PH why the goldfish died
because goldfish are known to easily survive pH's of anything from about 5.5-8.5 without flopping over dead.

7 may be ideal but that doesn't mean way high or way low is going to kill them. It just means it's less ideal.

Why the fuck does this nasty crap shed its leaves so much? It's not like it's dying, in fact it's growing really well, but a day after every water change the filter gets clogged up with its nasty fucking dead leaves. I'm on the verge of ripping it out of my tank even though my shrimp love it.

>>
>>2840710

Shedding of lower leaves (while tops continue to grow and remain healthy) is due to localised areas of low CO2 and nutrient availability caused by insufficient flow around your tank, so increasing flow rate (upgrade to a higher litre per hour filter, add powerheads, remove hardscape, trim any bushy smothering plants, etc.), reducing your light to reduce resource demand and increasing your nutrient dosage could all help.
>>
>>2840720
I might try it once I feel less angry at having to clean up its leaves again. My filter is already powerful for such a small tank but I do have some overgrowth in the lower areas of the tank so that might be it.

Does bamboo do well underwater? Or do you need to keep it half out like that?

Just start feeding a bit at a time, few times a day to reduce leftover food in the tank. Trim and remove old and dead plant matter from the tank. Leave a spinach leaf or and algae waffer and collect the snails that swarm to munch on it. All of the above would reduce the snail population over time. I have ramshorn snails and MTS in all of my tanks but the populations stay between 10-30 snails at all times.

Hydrogen peroxide is 10x more effective than Excel for serious algae treatment. Excel works best at controlling algae in high-light/high tech setups. For low tech tanks, EI dosing is your best bet at controlling algae, because it sets a balanced nitrogen to phosphorus ratio and the algae don't have a chance to compete.

I don't really have any plants in this tank, so that is why I don't EI dose it. I had two anubias and one small Java fern, plus a very small portion of salvinia, but not enough to warrant EI dosing. I tried peroxide for algae before and actually killed a sponge filter because I forgot to turn it off. But the entire tank was literally full of algae, quite disgusting. And I haven't found a reason as to why yet. There is no plastic in the tank for phosphates to leech from (except for the HOB and sponge filter parts) and the tank gets less than 8 hours of light per day. I have other tanks that are on longer with almost no algae. The only thing different in this aquarium is the sand.

How cold can floating plants like duckweed, salvinia, frogbit, and dwarf water lettuce get?

Didn't think of hitting up an expo. Will have to check out what's going on in the Portland area. Thanks
>>
>>2841643
You're welcome. But its only worth going there if you're interested in reptiles and amphibians too. I have only seen fish at an reptile expo a couple times. Last time was 3 years ago and it was a giant african lungfish.

Does it look like this?
>>
>>2841668
No, their eyes have a green color that glows when hit by light.
Two f them sometimes show a black fin on top and bottom of their bodies so I guess they are males.

Some guy told me they could be Pseudomugil signifer but they don't look very alike
>>
>>2841659
they look kind of like juvenile Pseudomugil furcatus

Can you get a better pic?
>>
>>2841688
I'll try but they move a lot
>>
>>2841688
or a short video might be helpful

I have a 10 gallon tank just sitting around. Is this enough for an Apistogramma pair? Is there anything else I can put in there? I want it to be heavily planted and want spiderwood instead of driftwood this time around.

Post 10g tank ideas.
>>
>>2841699
emerald eye rasbora maybe?
>>
>>2841699
Daisy's Blue Ricefish?
>>
>>2841699
ok yah not Pseudomugil furcatus like I said

You have Marosatherina ladigesi
>>
>>2841790
>Marosatherina ladigesi
Thanks!
Are they all female or they'll grow those fins?
>>
>>2841735
bye fishlicia
>>
>>2841800
ehh really hard to tell from the webm, but you for sure have some males in there.

It usually takes around one or two months for the fins to regrow from being nipped in the petstore and for them not look like grey pieces of shit. There's a few different varieties that differ in fins as well, so you might now get the long threads you see online
>>
>>2841778
It kinda looks like it, but no, thanks anon!

>>2841785
Damn it's not but looks nice tho
>>
>>2841809
Cool, I'll wait and see, thanks again anon
>>
>>2841809
typo

so you might NOT get the long threads you see online

What are some cold water fish other than the obvious native fish and goldfish? All the lists online give me the same shit, i wanna get some cool fish for my pond
>>
>>2841814
>pond
your winters freeze over or no
>>
>>2841816
Yes but it's at most a third of an inch thick, it can be broken just by stabbing it with your finger
>>
>>2841817
you could add a small fountain or something to help ice not form but its going to be really cold it sounds like im not sure what the temperature range for cold water fish is
>>
Cory is doing a livestream, any of you fgts listening to it?
>>
>>2841825
cory plz go
>>

>nigger bowsette
kys
>>
>>2841823
Yeah i have a fountain but its broken so it sprays all over the outside of the pond and makes it muddy. Frogs love it tho
>>
>>2841826
That would be funny if he came here tho
>>
>>2841817
>yes
rip, that limits pretty much everything.
>>
>>2841830
not so subtle cory plz go
>>
>>2841831
The fountain still keeps most of the ice from forming except for about a foot across the pond
>>
>>2841830
do you think any of the big fish youtubes come here?
>>
>>2841835
ice isn't the problem, it's the temp
>>
>>2841834
I would fucking get braces and see the fokin dentist if I actually was cory, cum on, m8
>>
>>2841839
Hmm I'll be sure to take the temperature of the pond during the winter just to see. I'm going to try to over winter gold barbs and white cloud minnows just to see if they'll live some time next year.
>>
>>2841858
white clouds are from guangzhao china. winter temperatures there are upper 50's. good fuckin luck with that.
>>
>>2841742
Some people have said that 10gal is enough for breeding, but for a pair 20gal L is probably better. It's only $10 more for a 20gal anyways.
>>
>>2841873
im gonna breed mine in a 5 gallon bucket and show all you fuckers how its done
>>
>>2841873
Only have room for a 10g.
>>
>>2841840
I would get leopard print skin tattoos and body mod gills and be a human puffer fish
>>
>>2841883
He already looks like one
>>
>>2841871
You never know anon. People always said weather loaches need 70 degrees but now they're invading new york waters.
>>
>>2841887
no they didn't. weather loaches have been sold at the pond store near me for decades. and i live up north

the ultimate question

royal blue orange eye shrimp tank?

or

endler guppy tank

never kept an aquarium before personally but have spent the last 8 months learning everything there is to know. literally everything.

i think the shrimp would be good but i fear they will be to small for me to even see (1 inch in length like wtf)

same for the endler guppies

the tank is a 29 high

pros and cons of keeping both? experiences keeping shrimp/fish? what's better in your opinion?
>>
>>2841915
why do you press enter after ever single line
>>
>>2841883
hell yeah dude

>>
>>2841915
>never kept an aquarium before
>never kept an aquarium before
>never kept an aquarium before

You want to cycle that thing then get one male endler and two females.
>>
>>2841915
>claims to know everything
>using a 29 gallon high for a shrimp tank
ok.
>>
>>2841915
endlers are cancerous. they reproduce until they overpopulate the tank. shrimp also are cancerous but at least clean up after themselves and are easy to sell for a reasonable price. i have a shrimp tank 5 feet from my computer desk and have no issue seeing them. i advise against keeping fish with shrimp unless you don't want many babies to survive.
>>
>>2841925
>29 high
this anon doesn't realize that's not even a thing. its a standard fucking 29.
>>
>>2841915
>29 high
what did he mean by this?
>>
>>2841924
i'm about to fucking strangle you i just said i was well educated on the way an aquarium works and you still say something you would say to a fucking amateur fuck off retard i wanted intelligent opinions on whether i should get a shrimp tank or a fish tank not how to set one up you fucking idiot do not respond to my posts ever again

>>2841925
there is no problem with stocking a 29 high with a shrimp colony. it allows more shrimp to be in the tank then a 5 or 10 gallon. just because you always put tetras and danios and pearl gouramis from petsmart doesn't mean some people can't stock their tanks with what they want. exactly like the poster above you give me something unrelated to what i was asking, which was whether a shrimp tank or a fish tank would be good for me based on the pros/cons of keeping both animals
>>
>>2841930
there are 2 types of 29 gallon aquariums, a 29 standard or the one i have, sorry for calling it a 29 high, my mistake, and a 29 long.
>>2841929
my mistake
>>
>>2841931
>you fucking idiot do not respond to my posts ever again
oh hey it's that retarded kid that got banned from the museum and the zoo
>>
>>2841933
>29 long
no this is not a normal size
>>
>>2841931
what's with the influx of retards recelenty /aq/?

First the goldfish anon, ember tetra anon, and now this dumbass
>>
>>2841927
it's not going to be a breeding colony contained in a single tank but rather a fraternity in one tank and a sorority in a storage container outside. to breed them i will choose a male from the main tank with a net, place him in the storage container outside with the female endlers, drop him in, wait for him to inseminate all the females, then put him back in the tank. after the females give birth the fry will be manually moved to another tank until mature, which can be added to the main tank or sold to the petstore. i don't think my lfs would want sss 90$ a piece shrimp and if they did they wouldn't pay me what they are worth, and shipping is too much of an ass i feel with shrimp, endlers i can sell for cheap though.
>>
>>2841937
at least 2 of those are probably the same troll. Maybe all 3.

I think you might be right, the behavior is the same between the three
>>
>>2841943
you're probably confusing the 30g breeder with a 29
>>
>>2841950
what are you talking about schizophrenic piece of shit take your seroquel the voices are talking to you again tyrone desist the patient
>>2841953
didn't know a 30g breeder even existed thanks for telling me that was it's name
>>
>>2841955
if it's actually 2 inches shorter than yours it's probably a 40 breeder.

the 30 breeder should be 6 inches lower than yours.
>>
>>2841960
it might be 6 inches lower idk i'm sure it isn't a 40 breeder though not nearly deep enough
>>
>>2841931
Leave and never come back.
