    My father has a 20 gal nano tank. as far as things in it, there is not a whole lot, other than two things. He has an over abundance of brissle worms and spionid worms. now he knows that the best way to really control there population is to stop feeding the tank as much as he does. but i dont...

    Hey everyone, i have a few questions. First off, i have a pep shrimp that has recently molted, but during the molt he lost like 3 of his legs (i assume that they came off with his shell, i can see them in his cast off shell, and he is missing the same legs on his body). I know they can grow back...

    Hello, this 'stuff' has been growing on my one single rock for a little over 2 weeks now. When the light is off it appears to go away, but after a few hours of the light being on it's back to being very 'there' again. I also have what appears to be Green Hair Algea, very hard to see in pic. I'm...

  10. nano build off 2008
    I know,.. I know. I said I wasn't getting involved, but then I got this idea :doh: The situation is that I have a 10G that's in my wall and has been empty since June when I gave away all the plants that were in it. I will enter if: 1. I have everything I need laying around. 2. I can design...

    Sorry on two counts. First, I feel liek I should post this somewhere else where only noob's post, and second the picture is poor at best. Nonetheless, I'm hoping someone can identify this little guy for me. It's in a really awkard spot and hard to view and photograph clearly. You can see the top...
