Trimmed a lot of plants yesterday to clean things up and get flow going in the tank. The fish survived ok but might've lost a shrimp or two?
Might've lost another shrimp :(. Did a water change. Will do water test later today.
Just got back from a business trip and discovered one of my shrimps died ?? RIP lil buddy ??
Yesterday I found some mysterious egg looking things. I scooped them into a net and left them in the aquarium. I suspect they are shrimp eggs that a mom shrimp dropped????
Two lambchop rasboras went missing and I have no idea where since I never found their bodies??? Maybe the shrimp are too good at clean up. The last two lambchops were so scared and lonely that I went
Lambchop rasboras have definitely been eating up the free floating detritus worms :D
