Grey stone and Bactor100 for ADA, cycle for 3-6weeks then introduce shrimps.
Grey stone and BeeMAX for Beni, cycle for 5 days-1week then introduce shrimps.

Glad to see you posting again my friend.

Can you tell us what that powder stuff you sprinkled under and on top of the soil is? I'm assuming it's some sort of bacter.



**edit got ninja'd** lol

Thanks GEM!

ps. Hi Nick, I'm always around. Learn a lot from your amazing photograph techniques.

Thanks for the guide Gem!
Your PRL look amazing.
I'm seeing that you use airstone in all of your tanks. To provide oxygen?

Great looking shrimp and photos as always sir! I don't think you needed much learning as far as technique ;). Thanks though!

Oh my word. When I look at those super high grade CRS with the red legs... I see $$$ flashing before my eyes...

Definitely subbed.

What is Grey stone? So on the second tank you only cycle for a week?
