My shrimp was at the bottom of the foam-block compartment today, so per some advice from MABJ and others, I also took some time to cover the lower filter entrance with filter floss. I lowered the flow rate in the tank to a very very slow pace by removing the tube from the pump, and I stuck another piece of foam batting inside the pump compartment for good measure.
I took a large section of the Java Moss from my 29G tank and put it in the spec too.
I'm wondering if I should put some aquarium salt in there? I was reading that maybe 1/2tsp would be good for momma and babies?
