Yeah, you're right, I should send my dad. Indian guys know how to haggle right
It's in the Asian Blood bro the neotiations. No haggling though. Pre-negotiated over the phone. Just don't let them reneg on you when you show up. Next time they try and do that, don't even do the deal. You don't need $6.00 store credit that bad. Just walk out on them. I'd rather flush the shrimps down the toilet than let them reneg or rip you off. You sound like your old enough to hold your own. Don't let your age hold you back....so I take back bringing in the Dad part fight your own fights.
This thread has been such a great read, thanks! I just put together my very first tank today, a Fluval Spec 2 gal. I'm learning about cycling and waiting patiently. I'll buy a test kit tomorrow. Do you recommend putting in a few fish flakes or would it be better to try to get some filter media from my LFS to jump start the cycling process? How long do you think it may take to cycle a small tank like this?
You have me sold on making this a shrimp tank! Any advise on type of shrimp to start with? How many? How do you tell male from female? What do you feed your shrimp? I hope you don't mind all the questions, but you seem to have had great success with your tanks and I hope to do the same with mine. I can't wait to get going with shrimp now, but will wait patiently for the cycling to complete. I have a feeling a bigger tank is in the near future for me! Thanks again for the great info in this thread, it's been so helpful for this newbie
So although I have been lurking here for a while I never bothered registering as I already belonged to several fish/aquarium forums. So the point is that I registered just to comment on this thread.
I have 3 of those 2.5g tanks just sitting on a shelf (used to keep my betta's in them before I upgraded the betta tanks).. Thanks to this thread they will get retrofitted to become shrimp tanks now.. Such an awesome ideal for these little tanks.
Awesome tank and shrimp. Right now I'm just barely making it with the small amount of money I squeeze out of my parents during xmas and birthdays to feed the birds and reptiles. I can't wait to get a job as soon as I turn 16 in Feb!
