I'm not too concerned about the shrimp right now. They're all pretty big, and the Angel is definitely still a juvenile. It doesn't look to me like he could fit a shrimp in his mouth yet. Perhaps...

Dosed ferts for the first time this morning! Hooray!

Last night I got a video of the second clam burying itself in the substrate, and hope to have that available soon.

I am a bit concerned...

Nope, I'm monitoring things. Still stable at 0ppm Nitrite and about 1ppm Nitrate. There should have been a pretty healthy amount of bacteria in this tank to start, as I did fishless with ammonia...

Grabbed a couple shots of the additions. I've got the DIY CO2 set up now, bubbles rising into my powerhead where they seem to be getting shredded quite well. Just mixed up my ferts which I will...

Little update:

Got the spray bar done and it's in the tank. I have the video, just need to overlay the audio and I'll post up a DIY video on that (even though I know there are a ton out there...

Yea, I know what you mean about the shipping fees. I'm actually doing a big order from LiveAquaria in the next few days. Lucky for me, I wanted to pick up a bunch of fish that I can't find locally...

Looks much better! Like the way the substrate elevates towards the back now. Also think the driftwood looks much better standing in that position :)

I think hygrophila pinnatifida would be a...

As far as plants go, I think another way to help the size balance would be to do as you said and go with something low growing not only in the extreme foreground, but right around the base of all the...

If you don't have other scaping materials handy, there's ways you can help modify them a bit with a small mount of cash.

For instance, you could buy some small PVC pipes (1/4" or 1/2") and attach...

I think it looks pretty good, but one nitpick I would have is that the two features are too well balanced. That'll confuse the eyes and make it hard to define the actual focal point. I'd move the...

Well, lost some fish yesterday. I went in and was doing a bit of re-scaping a few days ago to prepare for the order I'm placing today, and moved the big log I have in the tank. When I did that, it...

No pics for this update, but:


So, the Dwarf Hairgrass I have is in pretty sad shape. I'd say about 80% of it is bleached out and rotting. The other 20% was a nice shade of green but has begun...

Took a bunch of video today when I woke up and noticed the fish were exhibiting spawning behaviors. I was literally shocked, given that they've only been in the tank for 4 days now.

I'm slowly...

I will give that a try. I definitely think I'd have to hold the FD Blood Worms underwater, as putting them in the tank, even with a fair bit of surface agitation, they'd float for hours. The only...

Hello everyone!

So, here's a couple videos of my new 40G breeder. I went with the fishless cycling method (utilizing liquid ammonia), and after 3 weeks of cycling, it was finally ready for...

Oh, since I missed answering the other question, I hadn't intended to add an air pump. I am intending to leave the top of the aquarium open, and run at least one powerhead, possibly two. This is...

Yea, that's what I'd been reading about the few species of crab I did find info about. I definitely don't intend to run a top on the tank, so it doesn't look like they'll work for my tank, but...

Nobody has any thoughts? That's a little disappointing :(

So, I just picked up a 40G breeder at the Petco 1$/Gal sale. I haven't finished picking up equipment yet, but here's my plan:
