  1. Give them lots of hiding places, like a big rock or driftwood The pregnant ones use them for protection for their babies . I turned a batch of 6 ghost shrimp into a huge community of 40 shrimps in around a few months without seeing a single pregnant shrimp!
  2. Actually, given the proper habitat with a lot of hiding places. Ghost shrimp multiply quickly. What I've noticed is that the baby shrimp tend to hide under caves during the day and go out only at night to avoid being eaten.
  3. I dont remember what it's called but the shrimps I got were 2 inches long with long hands. Don't get small shrimps like ghost shrimp, your goldfish will make a snack out of them
  4. Well, snails can be a problem. But they do serve a purpose eating algae and decaying material
  5. Yep, I bet its ok. I have 6 neons and a couple of guppies in one of my tanks with no probs.
  6. Same here. Cook them first. I dip mine in hot water for a couple of minutes. I pinch one side to create a small hole and squeeze.
  7. Cool! I also see my goldies do the same thing. It looks so cute but does it mean that something's wrong with my tank?
  8. Wow! Sanay ah. Kami minsan dinadaanan talaga namin lahat ng shops para lang sure. What do you guys think about saving "feeders"? Kagi kasi asa forums yun na parang awang awa sila sa feeders na goldfish. Sa akin, wala lang, pinapakain ko lang sa turtle ko
  9. Yep, I bet it's teeth as well. They look a bit triangular with a hollow part in the other side
  10. Anyone here goes to Cartimar? Which shop do you like best?
  11. I saw one this morning at a petshop. It was kinda large, around 6" long I rember.
  12. One problem I had with shrimps is that they tend to jump out of the water. I'd just find them across the room the next day...sometimes they're still alive, sometimes I'm not so lucky.
  13. Dont flush your goldfish down the toilet! It might clog up your pipes . That's my biggest worry. Burrying them in the garden seems to be the best, that's what I do.
  14. Yeah I think ok naman yan. I put them in a large container nalang. Parang temporary aquarium nila. What liquid food do you give? So far pina ka ok na food is live brine shirmp and micro worms(dont know where to buy this) and may micro flakes din(parang powder). Good luck
  15. Thanks bettaqueen! Just followed your advice and now i have my plastic plants in my tank without them floating away. Thanks you all for the advices.
