Very nice. I want to do a high tech too, but I need to shuffle some things around first. Might be a while.

Just dosed the 10gal with .15~grams fenben, the first dose killed about 80-85% so figured id better step it up for the survivors. Mixed with 28ml tank water.


Cough... wrong thread but i dosed the shrimp jar with .1g. Havent seen anything but ill have shrimp there in 2 days so didnt want to have to go threw this again. Will feed twice a week but smaller chunks.

Hope it works! Im really worried about the planaria in my tank. Something is up with my debit card and my amazon order for the fenben was canceled. Im gonna build a diy trap.
-.-
BTW, your 3 gal bowl is really starting to look great!

Baby shrimp are always a good thing.

No time to do full update but... Added plants to 10g, re arranged a million times... Dunno if its final positioning.

Question. Tied twigs, keep or go

I bought 2 oto's for the 10g!! I always wanted some but never were in locally. Now im just scared theyll eat the tiny babies, but theres literally 50~ so i think ill be ok, but they are being shy so no picturees for now...

Well i do have a pic of me dripping them for an hour



Also picked up 2 more bottles of co2 boost, and Seachem Replenish.



Also the first time ive seen this in a store, so grabbed it. I have a heavy heavy stash of shrimp food i may do a small raok soon

The oto's will be fine with the shrimp. It is the guppies I would worry about. They will eat anything that will fit in their mouths.
