Window sill shrimp tank idea

Did you say you took water out because of displacement of LFS water? You mean when you floated the bag, right? You didn't put the store's water in your tank, right?

Nothing is breeding in my tank!

There is a lot of biofilm but I'm not feeding everyday because of the planaria. I think I'll get those nuked and then see what a more frequent feeding schedule does.

Honestly, I wouldn't be extremely concerned about the cherries if it hadn't been for the snails. The pond snails were laying eggs like crazy until sometime last month, then suddenly no more eggs. I...

I'm not sure what's going on, but nothing is breeding in my RCS tank. Not even the pond snails!

I suspect that my parameters are causing a problem, although I can't figure out what to do.

I responded to your question on the "other" forum along with pictures! The 16" sits on the lid over the tank section with no cutting of the lid necessary. It just sits up there.

Those shrimp are all neos, and if they interbreed (which they will), you will have brown/clear wild-color shrimp, and you will likely lose all of the different colorations.

Wouldn't the toxicity issues of reptile urine still be an issue if it has soaked into any of the plastics or hoses?

Isn't there a reason tanks used for reptiles shouldn't be re-used for fish,...

Are you talking about lucky bamboo that is actually alive, or dead bamboo shoots? Lucky bamboo is fine ... it's not even really bamboo. Dead bamboo shoots just rot.
