There are a few people that sell the dual sponge in the WTS section here, avoids the 3 month shipping from Taiwan effect and supports the local community. Just sayin

-1 for me for failing to notice date stamp on quoted post...

Hi! Yes update time!

I've been having some issues maintaining stability and such with this tank. I've been working very hard to fix problems. Random shrimp deaths may have been attributed to copper pipes in my house, leaching copper into my tap. I added Cuprisorb. Switched to Seachem Replenish from Ultimate GH Booster for easy of dosing and I'm unsure if I like it yet. Can't figure out why my TDS is over 300, but I'm monitoring other parameters and trying to maintain stability rather than an exact TDS. Also, ordered BorneoWild Shield to help with the random deaths, hopefully promoting better immune systems.

Whoever thought cherry shrimp were easy

Update shot:


The corkscrew vals on the right side are sending runners all over!

The random death problem remains unsolved so we are trying the "let's not do anything and see if they like that" approach.

Updates to follow.
