I don't know how I missed this release.

I have been looking for an LED light with lightning and other effects to put on a low-light tank for kids to enjoy without spending $500+.

I hope that they do offer it again.

My understanding is that it is a fired ceramic media.

Probably similar to 'sintered glass' or 'ceramic' bio-media.

Otos often times die when you first buy them.

They typically have a death sentence from being caught/shipped but sometimes they live long enough to make it to your tank and then die.

When using Amazonia and going with more sensitive shrimp it never hurts to let the tank mature a little bit longer than a normal 'cycle' would provide.

Definitely check the tank gh/kh/tds before...

Yeah, the LFS should be able to sell you some aquarium safe silicone. Just apply the silicone a day or whatever the instructions say before you plan to put water in the tank.

This is pretty much what I did.

Since they were lightly fed shrimp tanks with a mass of floating plants on the surface it seemed to rob the algae of whatever it needed to grow.

The Fugeray should be a pretty good option for you...if you can find the correct length. I don't know for sure if a 20" fixture can move the legs in far enough to fit the 18" tank that you have.

I wouldn't mix substrates unless you have a real good reason to do so.

It won't hurt anything but it might drive you crazy if they mix near the surface and look funny.

The pH won't come down with ridiculously hard water anyways.
