True. But saying I need a tank to do it, gives me an excuse to set up another one.

I like the substrate alot too be honest, one bag gave me roughly 2" in the front and probably 4" towards the back. I want too try and check the gh and kh too see how it buffers today sometime and most likely the ph although the co2 is going so the ph won't be incredibly accurate, but my tap is Hard gh is like 15+ and kh is 8+ and ph 7.5+ I think i got when I tested it once.

I didn't rinse it this time and just put it in then slowly filled it and had no clouding. I got some dust when I was planting stems and what not but nothing even noticeable too be honest, I really wouldn't have known if I didn't see a tiny bit of dust on some of my plants but I am going too let everything settle in before I brush off the plants, I don't want too uproot everything trying to clean them off. It's barley noticeable but you can tell its there if that makes sense.

What about yellows, and maybe some type of tiger shrimp? Or would they interbreed?

Yellows and tigers won't interbreed.

Bow chica wow wow, good for you and sorry I stole your line, what's the job?

You need to have a photo update, the tank looks nice and I really like the Flame moss.

Edit: someone needs to start a invert hybrid sticky, I only know Cherries & Yellows make Brownies but it's something that's needed.
