To remineralize the water, I got Bee shrimp mineral GH+. Since it's foreign, it's coming from Great Britain, so it's going to take some time to get here. Hopefully I can get a tracking number though.

Just ordered some driftwood, inert and clean stones (Rocks just sounds ugly and dirty, so I just put stones lol), Mini Christmas Moss, Mini fissidens, Flame moss, and Mini Pellia!

ADA Aquasoil coming in either tomorrow or on Monday.

Pics to come when everything arrives!

Nope, only the ADA Aquasoil should be coming tomorrow. The rest should be coming on Wednesday (If Halloween is not a day the PO considers a holiday). We'll see!

Oh, also, where did you get your aquasoil? How much did it cost? I am looking in to POSSIBLY getting aquasoil for my own shrimp tank, and I'm looking for some places that sell it cheap.

Nice guy on APC. Sold me around 9 liters for about $40. You may be able to bargain for less, but that's what I payed.

BORING BORING WHERE ARE ALL THE PRETTY PICTURES? I'VE BEEN LURKING FOR DAYS AND STILL NO PICTURES!

Btw, 6 of the RCS you gave me molted on the same day, right after a 50% water change. It was kinda freaky cause I left for a while and came back to little white shells, they looked like shrimp ghosts.

Oh don't worry, I've got lotsa pics coming, you just sit back down and wait .

Wow! Six of them? That's incredible. Hope that means the females that molted are ready for eggs now .

Ok, back to my followers:

I just got the DW, Flame moss, and aquascaping stones today! My mom was scornful of my getting rocks, but heck, who cares what she thinks? lol jk. I'll get some pics up soon today, maybe lunch hour? This afternoon at the latest.

Thanks for your patience guys!

Ok guys, for all your patience, I have the long awaited pics! As bad quality as they are, they're the best I can do with this $@%&# Nikon camera. So, without further ado, here they are!


This is the current set up, you can see why I want to rearrange things.


Right side of the tank, primarily Subwassertang.


Left side of tank.


One of three driftwood pieces. Tape measure for size.


Second driftwood piece.


The third piece, the one I just got yesterday.


First of the aquascaping stones.


Second half of the aquascaping stones.


Rose moss in the shipping bag. h4n did not have any mini pellia, but I fell in love with Rose Moss.


Mini Christmas Moss in shipping bag.


Last pic, this of Mini Fissidens in shipping bag.


That's all for now! Feel free to throw in ideas for aquascaping, I'm no good at it.

Things I need before shrimp:

ADA Aquasoil (Should be here any day now)
Bee shrimp mineral GH+ (Hopefully here soon, but I had to order it from the UK, so it may be a while )
Cycled and ready (I will be tearing down the tank, then re setting it up, so I need to make sure the filter stays cycled!)

Thanks guys!

That is what they say. I am trying not to fall into the dark and consuming pit that creates ADA fanboys though lol (To avoid future flak for this comment, I apologize to the ADA... err... fanatics)

Thanks for following bro! Hopefully this turns out ok!
