No problem at all!

Thanks I love my rack. I hope to get it all functioning very soon. Building up the last two tanks now, just gotta cycle everything.

I think a canister filter is the solution. Would you recommend the sunsun for a 2.5g?

Also how noisy is it? I would have it right next to my bed.

You and me both! Right now I'm worried because I keep seeding the tank and nitrate isn't taking off, the ammonia just keeps growing.

That's not a bad thing :p maybe my wallet will regenerate a little then.

I am using normal Xmas in the carpet, mini Xmas in the tree

I debated on more but wound up on those two.

MABJ Did some maneuvering of the rack today. Canisters are the best filters ever. Absolutely love them. Easy to hook up, better filtration and they are a siphon already. Just move the outflow to a bucket!

MABJ So after the Nitrate was at 5 ppm, I couldn't detect any Nitrate last night.

That is quite unfortunate, so the actions I took were swapping out a seeded filter sponge and squeezing filter juice into the water, along with replacing a gallon of water from this tank with water from an established tank.

I also added a bit more safe-start.

We will again see what happens to the cycle. The ammonia is plenty high, I don't want it to go over 50 ppm.

MABJ Hokay. Pictures keep journals interesting.

So I'm going to be using this thread as my unofficial rack thread lol.

MABJ Just did a ton of work on the shrimp rack.

Also did some testing... It wasn't positive unfortunately. So I have transferred even more filter media, and I am going to try to continue the cycle.

But the good news is one shrimp rack shelf is officially done. I really recommend everybody get one of these. It's like a rig that you can attach stuff to. I've got drawers on it, fans hanging on the side to control temp spikes, power strips on both sides to manage the power chords, and possibly most important of all, you can actually rig up one long light for an entire row of tanks. This is super neat.

I'll post pictures soon.
