Have enjoyed your thread. I even read the previous one. Just wondering, do you use a heater in your Mini?
Approximately how much AquaSoil is needed for the Mini M?

Its been quite a while since I have done much planted tank. All is excellent, family and work just have a way of cutting down/eliminating hobby time! Ill elaborate a bit later.
Here are some shots of my M in its current iteration.

I don't know if any of you have heard of Anubis design but I'm a member of their yahoo group. The owner Mark Denaro (might be Denero but I don't thing so) has been importing fish for a long time and being a member of the group everyone he is going to purchase something he shoots out the list of what they have.
Normally I browse through it and delete but today I noticed something that I have been wanting for a long time, Parotocinlus sp. Nanay.
These are (from my understanding) a type of Oto but they are a bit smaller and much more ornate looking.
So I ordered 6 and should be getting them next week!

|bsmith||Obviously I have been slacking on updating this since the light caused all my hard earned crypts to melt with only maybe 50% returning from the slime. But today I made an acquisition that will hopefully be arriving next week sometime that gets me all amped up about this tank again! I'm going to find the proper name real quick so I don't butcher it!|

|Newman||those crypts must live D:|

Wort case scenario, everything does melt/die. I have been toying around with getting a slightly larger tank so I can cram even MORE cool crypts in the tank. But since its on my desk my options are kind of limited.
I really like the mr.aqua 11.4g tank and I think it would fit like a champ on my desk. I already have an unused 2215 that only needs an impeller shaft and lighting would be a snap.
Maybe it wouldn't be the worst thing that cold happen. I would still have my shrimp!!!

|Newman||hopefully they rebound.|

I really don't see how an experiment testing if cryps/anubis can harm shrimp either just being in a tank with them or when under duress. First since that myth is just that a myth there has never been a specific chemical or composition that is claimed to harm the shrimp. Without that0 you cant even do an experiment.
Its not that the claims of crypts/anubis harming/killing CRS have been busted or scientifically dis proven; its just that so many people (obviously myself included) have kept CRS with these plants and had no issues it is pretty much just accepted fact that this myth is just one of 1,375,989 myths that have to do with CRS and crazy reasons they die that are completely bogus.

Hopefully I will have enough time to take/post up some pics tomorrow.

|zachary908||Nice looking shrimp, Bsmith!|

ok, but experiments for testing that are easy to setup, I'm surprised there is no backing for those claims o_o
that's a good thing if the claims aren't true.

|Newman||well now that crypts are dying, i hope they wont have any issues with any chemicals they might release...|
