    Just a quick question about my fire shrimp I got last friday. Last night i noticed that he had molted which i understand to be common when they are introduced to a new environment. I read some forum and articles on wether to remove it or not but decided to leave to so the shrimp and rest of the...

    Hello everyone! I have a 30 gallon tank with a coral beauty (yes i know 30 gallon is kind a small for a coral beauty, but it's happy!) a fire shrimp, a goby, a cleaner shrimp, two mushrooms, a trumpet coral, and a emerald crab with several hermit crabs and snails. Ok the problem i have is with...

    Is a fire (blood) shrimp compatible with a coral banded shrimp in a 30 gallon reef tank? If they are, is it better to add them at the same time?

    I have 2 Clownfish (Ocelaris) , 2 Dotty backs (Neon and a purple) and a fire shrimp. Currently we are feeding them a small pinch of flake food in the morning, 2 small brine shrimp cube in the afternoon and another small pinch of flake food at bed. Is this the proper amound/type of food to be...

    Got a new mushroom a few weeks ago. He's (I've assigned him a gender) been doing great, opening up right away, easily tripled in size since we put him in. Then I noticed he didn't open yesterday. Kept an eye on him, thinking he may need to be moved in the tank. This morning he's just a...

    Hi there and happy Friday. I'm having an issue in my tank and want to get some opinions from some of you veterans out there, or anyone else who wants to chime in on this discussion. I have a 45g Nano that has been running for about 1 1/2 months. I have been out of the hobby for about 7 yrs...

    Hey everyone!! Happy Sunday! So I've got a really cool fire shrimp, who likes to hang out in caves and what not and has a station set up in a crevice on the front of a rock so he's very visible. I got a Damsel yesterday and he seems to be roaming and eating well and having a good time in the...

    We have a little bit of a mystery with the death of our fire shrimp and am throwing it out there to see if anyone has some insight. We have a 29g biocube that has been cycled for a month with live rock/live sand. Our shrimp has been in our cycled tank for about two weeks, perfectly healthy...

    I own a 29 Biocube, I had 2 small chromis and one medium yellow tail damsel (who is kinda aggressive) it always chases the 2 Chromis around if they swim deeper towards the rocks and corals Anyway, I passed by my local store after he sent me a text saying he got a new shipment. I got a fire...

    So today I was feeding my fire shrimp some leftovers, they've been pretty shy so far mostly hiding in their cave. But today just after feeding one climbed up onto my hand and began cleaning me. I know it's boring but I was so pleased as heard they were a shy breed but so pleased they are coming...

    I Have a 125 that has been set up for about 9 months. I have been wanting to add a Fire Shrimp and finally got one but the next morning only bits and pieces of him were left. I'm not sure if he didn't make the acclimation or something ate him. Here's what I Have: Fish: 2 clown 2 Yellow tailed...

    I bought a fire shrimp on Thursday and when I put him in the tank he swam about and settled in a few places before finding a little cave but since then he hasn't came out as far as I have seen and he seems disinterested in food. Is this normal behaviour? Thanks

    I went to spot feed my trumpet coral in the middle of the night, using a flashlight for guidance. There was tons of "stuff" floating in the water, and I was shocked that there was so much junk floating around. Closer observation, however, showed the particles to be tiny, mostly transparent, but...

    I bought yesterday a big fire shrimp, a cleaner shrimp, and a peppermint shrimp, this morning I looked at the tank to find my cleaner shrimp on the sand in half!Then the same story with with my peppermint, I know it wasn't my Pygmy angel, or my 2 occelaris clowns.So, watch out and keep an eye on...

    So, my tank is fine except that shrimp die. Pistol shrimp, fire shrimp, peppermint shrimp...they just don't last. I'm not new at this, my old tank had several shrimp which lived for years and got pretty huge. I've just taken most of my rock out and put it into my old tank (re-doing my main...

    I am thinking of adding a fire shrimp into my system and was wondering if he and my coral banded would clash. I know that it is not good to have two coral banded shrimp together, but will he kill my fire shrimp? God knows he likes to kill my blue leg hermits. He has a small bone yard going on...

    So, I am thinking of picking up a flaming prawn goby for my solana. Before I make a decision, I want to see if anyone has experience with them. Of course my big fear is the fish is only 1" long and could become a very expensive snack for any future inhabitants of the tank. Also, my tank is an...
