Krian, for 2x2 more inches you can almost double your water by going Ebi or 30c cube. The link you posted is nice, but there's only going to be so many shrimps you can cram in there. The larger you go right now, the better they'll breed and more shrimps you'll have.

That's true... I might. I just thought this size would do better on my desk (it's glass, I think 8 gallons of water would be too much...)

Or maybe I'll meet in the middle and get the Mini M.

It's not really 8g once you put the substrate in. The Mini M is nice too. Easier to scape IMO.

I torn down the ADA 30c yesterday. Moved the Taiwan Bees to my new modified breeder box and the Crowns over to the new 20g long. (ShrimpTech I)

Going to simplify my life for now, only two tanks running. Starting a No-Tech project. Black lava rocks cycling in an existing tank. Sea Fan ordered from that online auction site. Reading up on how to make brackish water.


Here is the start, 2g flour jar from Crate and Barrel:

Opae Jar is on hold for now. Going to reboot the ADA 30c. Here we go again, round 3 on this journal for this tank. I really don't know what I'm going to do with this tank yet. I do know that the New Amazonia takes a minimum of 2 months to stop leaching ammonia so better get the cycle started and I can worry about style later.

Took the rock from original ShrimpTech 60p tank to do a little single stone Iwagumi with Crypt Parva. This is emmersed Parva from a farm so it will all melt away and regrow nice and low.

Mini X-Mas. There's no shrimps in here so I'm doing daily 100% WC hoping I can leach out the ammonia quicker.

Poll Added! I made an executive decision today. I will be breaking down my 60p "Lost Temple". I will restart my extra 30c and run two 30c side by side on the same stand. They will be twins. Fraternal Twins.

I'm leaning two ways for the new tank I'm about to build and I want your vote. You can help me decide if you want. You have until end of May to cast your vote. I want to start the tank in June before the July vacation and shrimps in at the end of July.


1) BTOE - Orange Eye Black Tiger Tank

BTOE

2) Sulawesi Caridnals Tank

Cardinal

Once you saw in person the intense red color body and white claws moving, there is no turning back.

BTOE!!!

One you go black, you never go back ;D

Though BTOE on aquasoil would be hard to see for me personally.
