Well after about a week of messing with my stones this is the best I could come up with. I'm still not sure if I'm happy with it but I got inpatient and planted the HC anyways what do you think? Any suggestions?
This will be home to 30 CRS that are on a express plane to Hawaii as we speak.
Stone placement looks nice. Sucks how some parts of the rocks might get covered by the HC after it grows out. Also, I know this is gonna be painstakingly borring... separate your hc clumps into individual stems. It looks like you have enough HC to pretty much have a carpet if you seperate the clumps into couple of stems.
yea as I was breaking up the HC I got lazy and just started tossing large clumps in there. The pictures doesnt show it well but the upper left corner has a solid 2x2 portion of HC. It was the last piece I put in. What can I say, It was getting late(11:40pm) I decided screw it will all grow in eventually lol
Did you cycle the tank already? The ammazonia will def have an ammonia spike which will probably be a death sentence for the CRS. They are pretty sensitive to water conditions.
no I did not cycle the tank but I am using recycled soil from my other tank and the filter has been in constant use from another tank as well. I guess I better check the ammonia levels before the shrimp go in. How many shrimp can I safely keep in the Mini M before they get over crowded?
I was thinking the same thing it would have looked much nicer if the screws were hidden on the back side
You can switch it. I did it for mine. If you flip it over you'll see a couple of small screws that attach the arms to the clamp. Undo those, flip the arms around, and you're set! Careful not to lose the little washers though. There's one on each screw.
