Hey Brian,

Cherry Shrimps are really easy to breed, it's the crystal red shrimps that are more difficult, I never had much luck with them anyways. I think my tap water comes out at 200 according to the report.

Hmm..

GH 8 - 9
KH - 6
PH - 6.6 to 6.8


Oh, I forgot to mention the problem with Cherry Shrimps, they breed like rabbits. Trimming and cleaning takes a bit longer because you have to avoid all those babies.

Bored with the scape, I want to go Iwagumi next. Can you reuse ADA AquaSoil? There is a layer of mum on the bottom and it's so ugly, if I were to deep vac, wouldn't I crush the soil balls?



Boringgggggggggggggg

I'm pretty sure you can reuse the aquasoil. How long have you had it? I've heard of people drying it out either outside in trays or low temp in the oven. So it's easier to store and scape with.

Only thing is I'm not sure if they rinse/wash it first or not.

Been about 7 months since this tank been up. I'm thinking of adding another layer of AS Powder form on top.

Anyone know how to make a ball shape of Rotala? I think my tank is too short to form one.

That carpet is incredible! Love the tank. Understand you want change. Would you simply reduce plant species and change the rock placement for the Iwagumi style? Would this make tank maintenance a lot easier or no? If you have shrimp in there doing well you could add some small schoolers to enjoy right? I look at those pictures and see myself watching the tank like I do my own and it just seems fish add so much, but I understand if it's not your thing. Perhaps your dosing/CO2 would bother them? I do not have CO2 in any tanks. However, seeing the results of this carpet and several other impressive tanks on this forum have me planning for a high tech tank in the future. Enjoyed reading this thread, my high tech/plant knowledge is growing... as is my kung pow humor.

Thanks for the kind words!

I currently have 2 otos cat and one lone killifish. I would like to add in fish, was thinking of something small like rasbora green. My shrimp population is getting out of control, I can't seem to trim unless a swam of shrimps jump on my arm. I was bitten once by a large female, it felt like a ant bite.

As for your tank, add Co2 and it will open a world of possibilities. You can dose high Co2 while having fish, I have a lot of water movement on top of my tank.

These cherry shrimps are constantly breeding, it's a love fest in here. How old do shrimps have to be before you can ship them or sell them?

How do you get thin long leaves? Why are my Rotala so fat?

Breeders often sell and ship the younger ones because they handle stress better. So you can sell a mix of young and old right now. I would personally do more of the young ones for better survival or ask buyers to specify which they prefer.
