|g01ngog||Just a little update. I've had the tank for about a week and 1/2 now, and its thriving. It came with 1 berried female and as of last night, had at least 3 more. I'll put up pictures of it when I get back home.|

I just saw this thread after I acquired the aquarium and I hope I'll be able to keep it flourishing like you have :-)
I'm thinking about using this thread to post updates on the tank instead of creating a new one.

|Bonefish||Thank you! I'll miss it, but since it's going to another PT forum member, it'll be in good hands.|

One final bump for Shrimphaus!
In November 2010, a year after establishing Shrimphaus, I converted it to a simple Iwagumi. Just 3 rocks (which have cool textures), some HC, and some DHG. And the shrimp, of course!
As of today, the whole tank is on sale. I hate to see it go, but I need to cut back on the hobby as I move into graduate school. I'll miss Shrimphaus! It had a good run.
The 2.5 gallon low-tech is still running - I'll be updating its thread soon!

|AkCrimson||Wow I love it! I wanna come steal your RCS|

|dj2005||Your HC has grown in very well. I wish mine would come in like that. I love the little patch of emersed HC too.|

ryndisher - I might be able to trim some for you! It wouldn't be a particularly large portion, only about 1 square inch, but if that small of a size works for you, then sure thing! I also have plenty of excess Taiwan Moss and Subwassertang.
ZooTycoonMaster - Yep, it's oxygen. The Hagen Elite Mini is an excellent nano filter. It's essentially a foam filter and air stone in one unit. The air comes from a venturi valve that hangs out the back of the tank. I've seen some people on these forums rig the Hagen Mini into a CO2 bubbler, so it can be done, but I haven't tried yet.

|ZooTycoonMaster||So the bubbles coming out from the filter are oxygen bubbles?|

|ryndisher||Also i was looking for some HC to carpet with so maybe i could kill 2 birds with 1 stone?|

ryndisher - Cool! I'll PM you about the shrimp as soon as I'm ready to unload them.
PinoyBoy - Excel only. I'm too afraid of soda bottle explosions in my newly-painted room to try the DIY method. The chopstik things are wooden toothpicks. That front corner of the HC mat lifted up off the ground a bit, so the toothpicks were a temporary measure to hold it down long enough to re-root.
The Excel has worked wonderfully. The tank gets dosed daily according to the Seachem nano dosing chart that's been floating around these forums. Pretty small doses, usually .15 mL a day of Excel. I dose Flourish Excel, Iron, Flourish, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. I stopped dosing Trace after I noticed shrimp deaths corresponding with the days I dosed Trace. The only algae I get is great dust on the acrylic, which I brush/scrape off during cleanings.

I Didn't read everything.... But I couldn't find info...
Is this tank running on DIY CO2 or just Excel?
Also what's that chopstik looking thing on your HC on the last picture?
