|Nubster||IAL is great for growing biofilm and the shrimp will eat that off the leaf. So it's best to leave it in the main tank.|

|HunterX||I would recommend two changes. First be sure you use a water safe epoxy. Two I would recommend also drilling some holes low below the intake to pull in stuff that isn't floating. Don't forget to put some wire mesh on the inside.|

Got a question hoping some of you shrimp keepers might be able to help. What causes Gh to creep down after a few days. My gh starts at 6 and then after a few days to a week its 4 or 3?
I have fluval plant stratum and a piece of DW in the tank. I'm taking the DW out today and putting it for sale on here.

|HunterX||I can't remember what brand they are I'm sorry. I did purchase them at Pet Smart and they were not the small ones. They were the larger ones. The small sponges are too small so I bought the larger ones and cut them to fit!|

|PRSRocker3390||Are those aquaclear sponges in there? If so what size did you use?|

|PRSRocker3390||Where did you get that mesh on the filter slits from?|

|HunterX||Finally figures out what type of moss I have. It looks like Peacock Moss to me.|

Pic of how I modded the filter!
Step 1: Drill holes in the bottom so water is pulled down through the filter media.
Step 2: Clue a piece of plastic to the cut out section on the side where the water was pulled through. I recommend using an epoxy designed to bond with plastic. Also be sure and let it cure all the way before you add water.
Step 3: Clue some wire mesh on the inside of the filter intake so shrimp are not able to crawl through the slits. Don't forget to cover the small hole halfway down the filter chamber.
Step 4: Layer your filter media. I had to buy two larger blocks of foam and then cut them to fit.

|HunterX||I think I finally have the tank at parameters the shrimp like. I haven't had a death in a week and I have a barried shrimp. She is pretty young so I don't think she will carry them full term but I'm excited she is comfortable enough to become barried.|
