My name is Dallas and I have MTS.
I bought my first tank (since I was a kid) in the start of September. I know have 2 and want to start a shrimp bowl to sit on my desk.
I was reading a "how to" online article about the process and something didn't seem right to me so thought I would ask here.
Basically the author said to go with MGOCPM and a PFS cap which seems ok. Then plant it with whatever plants you wanted.
Right after that it said to add the shrimp. This doesn't seem right to me though. I am guessing I need to wait and allow the bowl to cycle?
From my experience with the dirt tank I am cycling now, the ammonia etc would be pretty high to start with. Would this not just kill the shrimp?
