Honestly, it was nice for me to go back to the beginning of this tank. Motivated me a bit more to get the new setup finalized!

Yep, if you read the journal, you'll see they're ZooMed.
This: "There's non-slip grippy stuff beneath each stand and each of those storage baskets is filled with heavy crap like fertilizer and cans of paint."
They're placed on shelves, held in place by non-slip shelf liner, weighted down by the storage baskets. If you look at the very post post in the journal, you'll see a reversed example.

When you said dremel out the shelves and placed the stands... Where did you put the base of the stand? Under the tank on the shelf?

Now that I'm all moved, I'm getting ready to set this tank back up. Rather than stone, I'll be using large pieces of driftwood, ADA Aqua Soil and such.
Adding a black background today and getting things leveled. Hope to have photos of the hardscape soon.

I wish I had enough to sell! Maybe some day.
I've got a bunch of berried females, so maybe next year I'll be able to sell some.

|Bananariot||You should sell me some of those SSS cbs ;D since you netted them out already|

I should not be allowed to spend so much time on this forum. Because every time I check out a tank journal, I want to try something different with this tank.
The latest idea involves picking up some DIY mesh covering from Bulk Reef Supply and using this tank to house a school of 15-20 of my Corydoras habrosus. I'd use Aquasoil, Anubias, Crypts, driftwood and keep it simple.
Guess we'll see what sort of wild ideas I come up with over the next couple weeks.

It's already been torn down in preparation for the re-scape. but there are any number of ways to suspend it. If you look through this journal (posts 50-60 or so), you should see photos.
Just attach a couple segments of chain to an S-hook.

|londonloco||Jake, can you do me a big favor? I need a up close and personal pic of how you suspended the light from the hanging tree. I hate to beat this to death, but I'm having a problem visualizing it.|

Four hours later, 99% of the shrimp are removed, most of the plants removed, yadda yadda:
Actually put the plants back in the tank after all the shrimp were removed because I need a place to keep them until the rescape takes place. Counted more than 50 Anubias. Insanity.

|somewhatshocked||By slowly dripping them into the new tank. If parameters are close, it usually only takes an hour or so. If they're off? I'll drip for 4-6 hours if necessary.|

|sacme||Quick question, how do you go about acclimating your shrimp?|
