This is not an uncommon problem as Dwarfs are VERY picky eaters. In the mean time, try taking one of the smaller pond snails an...

Re: are metal ties on the bottom of plants ok in shrimp tank

if you go back and think about it for a moment, where to lead ties come from? Metal... metal is mined and not refined at 100% purity. Thus you are possibly adding unwanted metals to the tank (copper). Best to leave off the ties and and anchor the plants another way. All of my past shrimp tanks had t...

Re: Hello from sunny Singapore!

But can and will be, big jobs. Try to keep it as simple as possible, and as easy to maintain as possible. I...

Re: Live Rock.

depends on the grain size of the sand you are using. Remember the story of the 3 bears? Same theory applies here. Too coarse and it is no good, too fine it is no good. Marco Rocks seels oolic sand which is nice or you can get "sand blasting" sand from the hardware store and that is also a good grain...

Re: For RTR: Test to speech reader

our gaming team uses this program to create tutorials. They don't like their own voice or using the PIP feature so they voice over the text to make the "how to" vids.
