Super Glue Gel. If you use it, make sure you don't use too much.

Pakman wow... 31 pages of great shrimping info! Tanks and shrimp look great!

out of curiosity... how much time do you think you spend on all your tanks? 10 hrs/week? more?

somewhatshocked pink4miss: Yep.

Back to the journal... Finally getting things settled post-move and the shrimp are thriving again! Can't wait to get another 20L started up.

Also, if anyone wants to trade (human) bodies, that'd be appreciated. Not looking forward to climbing trees again any time soon.
is this the mulberry walnut ?

somewhatshocked Nope, I don't have shrimp for sale. Please note, though, that buying/selling isn't permitted outside the For Sale section of the forum. You'll want to take a look there. Tons of options and tons of different shrimp available there.

SR52012 Do you still sell shrimps? If so i am wanting to start a 10gl tank just for shrimp...

somewhatshocked Shrimp Stratum is a buffering substrate, so it's something typically used in tanks where you need to lower pH a bit or absorb some KH.

Inert substrates - like gravel - are fine for shrimp like Neos that don't need to live in conditions as acidic as Taiwan Bees.

action20 For the shrimp, does it make a huge difference if you use small rocks instead of Fluval Shrimp Stratum?

somewhatshocked It's low-medium. I have a 20" Fugeray on a 10gal and use a layer of fiberglass window screen to cut things down a bit.

That's the tank in my signature. A month or so ago, I pulled a few pounds of moss out of that tank after just 4-5 months of growth.

8 hours of low light. Nothing special.
I'm trying to grow moss thick as well, but it isn't really working. Is a Fugeray on a 10 gallon low light?

somewhatshocked Moved about 20 PRLs from my 45-F to the PRL tank.

Lots of work and updates.
