GPH too high?

Hey guys. I'm starting a new 20gal long tank and I want to use a canister filter. I have a Marineland C-360, but I'm worried that the GPH might be too much for a 20 gallon tank? It pumps 360 GPH btw....

Re: Shrimp breeding advice

^hit the nail on the head.
So I'm curious, can a grade S CRS produce grade SSS if bred with another grade S CRS? Or can it only do that if one/both of them already have recessive SSS genes?

Re: How much are you willing to pay per shrimp?

The most I would be willing to pay is around $30-$40....unless a purple and green breed came out. I would sell my car for those. Ha ha.

Shrimp breeding advice

Hi guys, I have bred RCS before and would like to start breeding other shrimp for profit to help offset the cost of this hobby. What would be the best shrimp to breed for profit in your guy's opinion?

Re: CFL questions

I think I'm going to try two 13 watt bulbs and see how that goes. I would rather have to bump the lighting up than to have too much light.

Ok, so...not gonna lie, that confused the heck out of me. I'm guessing by that chart I could use two 15Watt CFLs to achieve high lighting for a 20 gallon long tank?
