Thanks. Its on nonstop to reduce the initial algae outbreak of "new tank syndromes" : )

Nothing is in the tank yet so that is what I plan to do for awhile just to get the HC and other plants adjusted with minimal algae. Planning to ad Horned Neriets, RCS and cheap White Clouds in the tank to help with the cycling at the end of this week. I will see how they do with the CO2

Ahh gotcha. I havent had a lick of luck with nerites in my CO2 injected tanks. I recommend feeding them food high in calcium.

I heard in CO2 injected tanks their shells get messed up?

Have as little as possible I'd say and keep their shells strong with calcium enriched foods

Talking Oct. 5 Update (1st H20 Change)

So far so good. No major algae outbreak yet. Just a few here and there that my bf diligently picked out. Crossing our fingers

Oct. 5: Added 1 Blue Pearl, 2 Yellow Shrimp, 5 Horned Nerites, 7 White Cloud & 10 RCS (females only) after a 50% H20 change.

* TDS: 80ppm
* Chlorine: 0
* pH: 6-7
* kH: 2 / gH: 4
* Lights on 8 hours per day (9:30AM-11:30AM) (2PM-5PM) & (10PM-12AM)
* CO2 is on 24/7 (1-4 bps)
* No fertilizer dosing

Your tank looks great, good job. Like mcwf12 said, your yellows and RCS will interbreed so I wouldn't put them in the tank together unless you are okay with wild colored babies.

Yeah I was going to say the same thing. You're going to get wilds, unless that is what you are going for. I honestly do want some wilds though.

Thanks for letting me know. I am aware of such event happening so I only added females for all these shrimps. Made sure they are non-berried as well so they can't leave baby shrimps I don't want when we switch them out to CRS later on. The reason for the diversity is to see how each type reacts to the water conditions before adding in the CRS : )
