I usually just squeeze them dead with my tweezers and my shrimps are very happy to feast on them. Haha
It's not snail larvaes. It's like a clam but it only has 1 side of a shell.

yes. it looks like that at 1st. itll look more like a snail after it grow up a bit.

I have a few nerite snails. They're quite big in size though, would they attack them?

unless u hav ample supply of small snail that the sin snail can feed on, no matter how big ur pet snail is, sin snail will make a dinner out of it.

n btw, assassin snail kinda eat hikari algae wafer if no snail prey around.

Need some advice here.
I have a narrow wall mounted tank with ADA substrate set up for 4 weeks now with some christmas moss tied to a driftwood inside. Issue is a large  amount of the moss is browning. Moss was added after 2 water changes. Lighting is furnished by a T5 28W FL tube kept on for 10 hours a day which I think is adequate because I notice algae growing on my glass.  I admit I did not test the water parameters prior to adding the moss but not all is browning. Filtration by a canister filter with all those necessary bio stuff.
I have added 2 guppies and they are quite happy inside without signs of illness.
Please advice
*
water temp? christmas moss quite sensitive to water temp iinm. need it to be low

hi guys. need some advises and tips. i got 1 4ft tank. i planned to do low tech with easy maintenance planted tank.
roughly my plan is to use gravel instead of soil, some driftwoods and large rocks with plants inside.
the questions are:
1/ can i just use gravel as substrate or still need soil? if purely soil, should require more maintenance right?
2/ what kind of plants suitable for this setup?

thank you  biggrin.gif
*
for low tech, gravel is enough altho dirt is better

plant u are limited to fern, anubias, moss

my 2 cent opinion

what kind of gravel do u suggest?
*
any gravel that doesnt leach to ur water and alter its hardness will do.

but do note that ull need to dose more fert in dirtless setup to maintain healthy plant

Hi bros, when you guys bought a piece of wood from outside, is it necessary to soak and boil it? After I soaked and boiled it , it's still causing water abit tanning. How to reduce the tanning issue? Will this tanning problem cause problem to fish or plant?
*
wow thats alot of tannin...

but like bartbart say, continue soak n boil until the tannin reduce.

I'm trying black-out method for my tank. My hairgrass and flame moss is plagued with BBA.

Yesterday night was day 3, i opened up and shone some light into the tank and it seems like the BBA is still there, no color change on the BBA and the BBAs doesn't seem weakened.

I'm trying for a few more days. Ideas or tips anyone?
*
isnt bba cause mainly becoz insufficient co2? try bumping up ur co2?

any ideas what pump should i get and where to get the replacement for the light tube. also how should i arrange the filter media
*
light macam g23 connector. quite hard to find the 865 bulb for it tbh. but some hardware ship (last time i bought in ace hardware) do sell it. even harder to find planted tank bulb (the pink colored lightbulb). i can only find it (planted tank bulb, g23) in that one lfs in aman suria (cant remember the name of that lfs tho)

clog as in the bubbles is not fine anymore or no bubble at all?

if the bubbles is not fine, try open ur co2 regulator slightly wider for 1-2sec, to open the ceramic pores(dont open too wide, sked the ceramic break, just enough so that alot of bubbles come from ur diffuser)then adjust accordingly.

if no bubble at all, idk laugh.gif
