This way you can actually look at your art. I started out doing the same thing. Turn lights on before I left the house then have to kill them when getting back. You don't need to spent $40 for the upscale timer to enjoy your labor. Cheers!
I took this pic on 10/8/12. The Hygro and Savinia have really taken off. I lost the Crypts. I don't know but think the Saviania filled in the top so the light was really blocked out from getting into the tank. I have been clearing out the surface to make sure the light gets in. I am planting some dwarf sag right now
Thanks Disher! No ferts worry about it affrecting the shrimp just doing water changes. I do partial w/c every 5 days and take out about 40%. I did have some issues with algae early on but it seems to be non existent right now. I think it has filled in so much the lights not an issue. I run the light 8 hours a day and split the time. I run 10 AM till 2 PM then 6 PM to 10 PM.
I am trying to get a better pic I am horrible at taking pictures.
Thanks, I haven't bred any shrimp yet. There is a big fish meet coming up soon Im hoping to get some more RCS. How many shrimp do you think I should go with to get a good mix of male and females?
It was your bowl thread that made me start mine. I was a little nervous about my not filling in but it came around I guess.
