  1. Yesterday
  2. I just got a new finnex planted plus 24/7 light for one of my shrimp tanks to replace a different light fixture. I already had an older model on a different tank and I started thinking. You always here that the 24/7 button is just a gimmick doesn’t really work or change anything, so I decided to do an experiment. One tank I have it set to a timer with the light always on max and the other tank set on the 24/7 cycle. I only started about a week ago, but have noticed some surprising changes in behavior with the tank with the 24/7 cycle. I use a matten filter for filtration and rarely would see any shrimp on it. Now the shrimp are all over it all the time and they are more active and out in the open. It will be interesting to see what other changes come about. I will keep posting observations.

    I boil or soak them in really hot water first to prevent an excessive leeching of tannins. They are not dirty though.

    Back in the Freshwater game with a 3g bowl

    Forgot to mention, as long as my parameters balance out and the cycle finishes by this weekend I'll pick up a couple Amano shrimp to go in the tank, few weeks later some kind of neo, not sure which yet depends what I can find available but in leaning towards a blue variant, if everything stays stable 1-3 male endlers will finish off the stocking.
  7. I kept Freshwater tanks a little over 10yrs ago before jumping into the Saltwater reef game. For years I've been wanting to set up a planted bowl, I had a bowl picked out already that was about 1.5g. I finally got some time off work and decided to jump in head first, I went shopping for a lamp to use over the bowl and while doing so found a nice 3g bowl for a great price so I swapped my original plan and decided to go with the larger bowl for more water volume. I decided to go with the Walstad method because I don't want to deal with a filter in the bowl. I started with a dirt base capped with Seachem Onyx. I used a piece of drift wood I picked up a couple years ago when I was originally coming up with this plan along with a couple small rocks I picked up at the LFS. The day I set the tank up I picked up an Amazon Compacta and some red root floaters. I ordered some plants from a member if another forum, mostly stem plants, and planted them as soon as they arrived. The picture I'm attaching is from before I swapped bulbs, was originally using an LED 5000k bulb that put out about 300 lumens and I swapped to a different LED bulb, this one 2700k and 500 lumens. I've also raised the water volume higher.

    Advice on Moving a Tank

    Thanks. That's about what my plan has been, so I hope it won't stress them out too much. Unfortunately, all of them started acting a little crazy over the weekend so I'm a bit worried that something already has them stressed even though there have been no changes to the tank since I set it up and all of the water parameters seem to be fine.

    My Blue Dreams Tank

    Thanks...
  14. You could attempt this but not with ADA or any other soil that leeches Ammonia. You could do it with SLAqua, Controsoil or Brightwell if you wanted to. Generally, I just reset the tank and call it done.

    I do breed them myself. I should have more in 4-6 weeks. Let me know what your parameters look like when you get that test kit and we can see if they might be a fit for you.

    Shrimp for a nano aquarium

    @wyzazz Alright cool, I gotta let the tank establish first, I used half water from my established 5 gallon, and the other half is treated tap. My test kit was damaged recently when my cousin came over and knocked it over and decided to trample it (kids, wanna strangle em sometimes!) I'm getting a new one this Friday, so I all I got parameter wise is temp and pH (I have a separate pH tester) Once I get my test kit this Friday I'll be sure to hit you up! How many weeks you think it'll take to get some new ones? I imagine you breed them yourself.

    I should have some more in a few weeks. Shoot me a message and we can discuss parameters and such. I keep some in a 1.5gal tank at work along with some Cherries on city tap water. The ones at home are in remineralized RO in Neo Parameters.
