Grey stone and Bactor100 for ADA, cycle for 3-6weeks then introduce shrimps.
Grey stone and BeeMAX for Beni, cycle for 5 days-1week then introduce shrimps.

Gem,

Glad to see you posting again my friend.

Can you tell us what that powder stuff you sprinkled under and on top of the soil is? I'm assuming it's some sort of bacter.

Best,

Nick

**edit got ninja'd** lol

Thanks GEM!

Thanks for the guide Gem!
Your PRL look amazing.
I'm seeing that you use airstone in all of your tanks. To provide oxygen?

Oh my word. When I look at those super high grade CRS with the red legs... I see $$$ flashing before my eyes...

Definitely subbed.

No matter how hard you try, you cannot escape this hobby. You have been warned.
