Tanks are here!

Just received a new shipment of tanks today. Gonna be shooting out everywhere around the country come next week! We also got in some of the new UP Aqua Sand which is great for plants and shrimp (Its kind of a combination of their shrimp sand and Aqua Soil.) doesn't easily disintegrate, and very element rich etc. PH value about 6.5-7.0, and other goodies.

The one on the very far right is mine.


I only wish that the shipping charges would go down and not up, with the increased volume.

Its a 12lb. bag. The benefits you find from this sand say compared to ADA's Aqua Soil is that it will not break down as easy, no mess. Great for shrimp and plants, very consistent. I am going to be giving a bag or two out to some people to do a more detailed review on the soil and I will link you guys when that happens. But the basics are, it was made to replace UP Aqua Aqua Soil and ADA's Aqua Soil.

I have it in my 3g long with yellow shrimp, stauro, erio cinerum, DHG, crypt parva, and downoi. Everything is doing absolutely great. The plants are rooting well and growing. The shrimp really love the grain size.

Replace or compete with? And the new aquasoil doesn't break down, there was one version that did and they fixed it.
