I know nothing about CO2 but nice looking tanks! Good luck with the shrimp....they are fun to watch (or maybe I am easily amused)!

Your gunna want your co2 stable and unfortunately pb co2 is tough to keep stable. The most obvious suggestion is to upgrade but if you cannot afford to which some of us cannot then there are alternatives. Keep an eye on that bubble counter and drop checker.

They've been growing like crazy for me!


I ended up just removing the CO2 as I have no plants that really need it and didn't want to deal with the hassle of pb any more.

I also moved 2 weeks ago so did a rescape, I will post up new pictures soon. I also got okay'd from the husband to setup my 10 gallon!! So will need to start planning that out!

The tank looks great Barb, cool to see how far it has come along. Hopefully move went well, and its not too cold up there in Mass (I know how it used to be when I lived there, burrr!!!) Thats why I moved haha... Great to see the shrimp all happy, and like the setup as well. Loved the driftwood piece in the 2.5g too, wish I had it to see in mine lol.... Keep up the hard work and good luck with CO2 down the road.

The worst defeat in the world, is when you give up.

Thanks Straight!

Move went well, luckily wasn't a super cold day. But it is definitely cold now, especially in the boonies where I live.
I have really enjoyed growing and mostly learning from this tank and I am very very glad I started a journal so I can go back and laugh at how terrible my lack of scaping skill was/is

I understand, I live out in the boonies now, which stinks! there is no good pet stores around. I used to go to to Rhode Island to get whatever I wanted. They had everything from pirhana's to rare pleco's it was great. Now its petsmart or smelly lfs haha... it sad!
