I installed a DIY led on my 8g biocube reef using 5 3w "chinese" LEDs. So far, so good. I can try to find my build thread from another forum and post a link if you're interested.

It could be for a few reasons:

1. You don't have your filter protected so the shrimp got sucked in.

2. They were dropped by the mother. It's fairly common with shrimp who are berried for the...

I'd go with a small Eheim canister filter. I've used the 501 but I don't like how it has to be at the same level as the tank.

Ridiculous CO2 charge

I just called my local Airgas to get a quote for a 5lb tank and they quoted me $30 for the fill and tank then $1 per day until I brought it back. To me, that sounds pretty ridiculous. I've heard of...

I would go with the beamswork in this case. I had a 15w diy led light on my evolve 8 gallon and I got dwarf hairgrass to grow super quick. I'm pretty sure 18 watts would work for you
