Definitely! I leave them in until they're stripped bare.

Thanks!

This feeding was rehydrated black worms - they obliterated them.

Just scored a 33gal long and am toying with ditching one of these 20s in order to justify the new tank. Or maybe keeping them all.

Will I go all fancy and buy three bags of ADA Aquasoil and have no money for anything else? Or will I cheap out and use Safe T Sorb? Will I keep Neos and Tigers or will it be Taiwan Bees? The world may never know.

Now I just need to figure out how to hide this tank. Maybe this is a teaching moment? Don't leave me home alone or I will start another tank.

I got away with it! Not even so much as the stink eye. Victory.

Now to find a stand that isn't atrocious and figure out lighting. May end up going with a couple Fugerays or a T5NO. Decisions, decisions.

How about a 9L bag of aquasoil topped with Safe T Sorb?

I'll go one way or the other. Either with the buffering and nutrients of ADA or the cost benefit of STS.

Need to pick some ADA stuff up for other tanks (and one of these 20Ls), so I'm leaning heavily in that direction.

The latest scuttlebutt on my spare 20L involves possibly creating a Stiphodon atropurpureus habitat. Which means spending $100 on a 30" Finnex Ray II (in order to grow good algae) and maybe picking up a powerful canister filter or two strong AquaClears to create enough flow and oxygenation.

This forum is such a bad influence.

I'll be adding some cool new wild-type Tiger Shrimp to the Cherry tank on Wednesday. So looks like I'll be keeping things on the shrimp train chugging along for a while.

Also have three bags of Aquasoil coming this week, so I'm planning to redo one of the tanks for PRLs and TBs.
