kubism Posted November 21, 2014 Report Share Posted November 21, 2014 Hey Guys, I'm pretty new to the shrimp hobby ( 3 months in ) but I'm very lucky to have meet some nice hobbyists ( both local and international ) that helped me tremendiousely along the way. After seeing pictures of MK Breed PRL on Facebook, I knew I MUST get my hands on them ! Luckily I live about 15 min away from Blue Crown Aquatics, and found out they will be importing full line of MK Breed Products & Shrimp ! Id like to share with everyone my experiances of setting up a new tank using MK Breed products. So far, its been one of the easiest tank setups that I've done, and it grew a epic amount of biofilm / green algae like many of the tanks that the Taiwanese breeders have in their tanks. 10G rimless tank with thin layer of ADA Amazonia on the bottom. Sprinkled MK Breed Z powder on to the substrate. Covered with another thin layer of ADA, sprinkle 1~3 spoon full of MK Breed Gold Powder on top of the substrate. Filled with RO water, added sponge filter, and another 3 spoonful of Mk Breed Z powder directly into the water. Turn on the lights and left it on for 2 weeks straight. End of week 1, starting to have some green algae on the sides. Another shot from the top, starting to green up. 2 weeks in the entire tank is green ! 3rd week Cleaned the front of the glass to better see the tank. Changed 1/3 of the water with RO, then added MK Breed Blue Diamond to adjust TDS to 80~110, gh2 , also added 1/2 cap full of MK Breed Blood Diamond Returned to normal lighting schedule. Added some moss and tester shrimps. 4th weeks, all of the tester shrimps are very active, feeding on all the algae, and molting with ease. Still have tons of algae going, probably need to add a army of shrimps to eat it all. Im eagerly waiting for the MK Breed PRL that Jason of Blue Crown Aquatics is getting in very soon ! eozen81, randy, Elo500 and 5 others 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
