FaelynK Posted March 20, 2020 Report Share Posted March 20, 2020 Just documenting the journey... comments, pointers, opinions welcome! Been planning this for weeks and hit a couple bumps on the way. Originally planned to convert my turtle's old 10g to a shrimp tank but it has been commandeered as a baby chicken holding tank for when their brood box gets cleaned. Not getting that tank back for several more weeks, so change of plans. (That one will get shrimpified later on!) Slowly been accumulating scape items, substrate, etc. Light is still in the mail along with a smaller sponge filter and pump as I picked up a 3g cube on sale, pictures of those will be posted upon arrival. Still debating getting other items, budgets a little tight right now so I'll probably just start the cycle and do more later. Need to get new tank maintenance items as I don't want to use the turtle stuff in the shrimp tank. Ew, salmonella. Just finished scrubbing my dragon stone, wow did I underestimate how dirty that was! Started last night for a couple hours, soaked overnight, scrubbed a couple more hours this morning. Could probably scrub some more but I'm breaking the finer ledges and I'm using a clay substrate in this tank anyways so I'm calling it "clean". The bag was net weight 9lbs, after scrubbing about a million pounds of dirt and clay out it weighs in at 9lbs 12ozs. Think I got my money's worth! Guess I'm gonna go try to scape it, back with more pictures later! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
