Thanks.. yeah I figured their site would be the place to go. Not a bad suggestion there as for the future alternative as well. I kinda like the LED lighting though.. the nerd part of me finds it cool lol.. oh well. Might just stick to one for now. A friend is headed down to the states and am going crazy thinking of things to get that are cheaper/available in the States and not in Canada :p

I do too.. it will look weird having the corner filter and a light not coming out from the corner. Ohwell :/

Also you can't have the lid on with the Finnex, but I don't ever use the lid. The Finnex however is much higher lighting. I find I can barely keep red plants red with 2x LEDs.

Yeah it would look weird.. and I think I like the led light's look better in the water.. sorta makes things pop more I find.. and yeah I lost some fishes and shrimps to jumping initially and so i put the lid on.. man.. if things were not getting light before, it was even worse now.. 1) reflection 2) condensation .. visually it still was bright but my HC and DHG are pretty much brown.. and my Fissidens.. argh.. so i made a screen top from the screen used for screen doors.. i don't think it looks too too bad :p

Berried! 78F, 7pH, 6GH, 170TDS

Take that naysayer (diwu)!



Had to be the crappiest CRS that berried, ohwell, if all goes well time to move on to better bees. They don't carry many eggs do they?

Yea CRS definitely don't carry as many eggs as neocaridina. However, berried and babies living is a whole different story ! Good luck though!

Congrats! I had my CBS berried and have 2 batches so far.. i think I counted 7 from the first batch so fat that are all over 4 weeks old and quite prominent in the tank and a second batch was dropped by a second female.. these are still too tiny to spot and count but its exciting to see the berried females! All the best!
