Dwarf shrimp come in so many flavors. Gotta try them all.

It means that there may be a pot of gold guarded by evil leprechauns somewhere in my tank. Or worse, guarded by underpants gnomes!

But to be more serious, the rainbow was likely created by the small beam of sunlight hitting the tank.

Added a Hagen CO2 kit using my Mini Elite as the diffuser. So far, it's working great. This is my first time using actual CO2.

I also added a small amount of Fissidens. Not sure if I'll keep it but I'm going to wait to see how it grows in.

Quite a bit of tannins in the water from the AS. If I do a lot of water changes would that remove it quickly?

I've been thinking about this prospect since adding the CO2. I still need to test my KH though, and I do not have a test kit for that. I also need to test my pH Sunday and see if it's fitting for CRS.

If I do manage to keep a successful colony of CRS then you can certainly have some for free. Do you know if jojos sells CRS?

I don't think Jojos sell Crs. I remember them selling some before...it was a low grade and the price was high..

This guy is selling some pretty nice shrimps but a little expensive for his female ones.:

A little expensive? Thanks for the laugh.

I think I'll go bug greenisgood again after I check my parameters. $60 shipped for 20 decently high grade CRS is hard to beat.

Sorry to hear that, Nikki. Did you try to bribe him with a new gadget? Usually that works on us guys.

I think it came just at the wrong time, to be honest.

His pc I built for him for xmas of 2009, randomly died 1 1/2 months ago. After getting a warranty replacement on his video card, then his RAM, and this his motherboard. His new motherboard arrived today, and it is still posting an error code of 2A, and he was frustrated cause it didn't fix it. lol Poor guy, our last thing we can replace is his PSU. So here is hoping that I can just hide it, until his pc is fixed and he is in a better mood. LOL

I feel his pain. I recently had to RMA a few components from my PC and had my beloved PVA LCD die on me.

What PSU is he using? If he abruptly had his motherboard, RAM, and video card die on him then it sounds like the PSU is the culprit.
