Hi all, thanks for your time first of all.
So, I'm new to a lots of things relating to tanks. I have a 10gallon currently cycling and while that's going I want to set up a plants & shrimp only tank, something for my desk.
I don't plan to have a heater nor co2 just using a desk lamp (1 3 to 5 watt cfl) and air stone for some aeration.
The setup will be a 1gal (tall kind) jar, ryuoh stones, azoo substrate, ferns, moss, anubias (wanted to start with low maintenance plants), and shrimp once it's safe.
I was hoping to get some confirmation on a few things from more experienced persons:
- What do I "feed" the plants while the cycle process is taking place?
- How is a cycle process for something like this different from, say, my 10 gallon?
Thank you all very much in advanced.
