Haha that's happened to me. In my experience it can take a little while for plants to start pearling. I've lost my fair share of plants and its usually the easy ones I kill and harder ones thrive for...

I think you have a shot with hc in the rock. You can also raise and lower the rock to get the proper amount of light. Do you see any of your plants pearling with the co2?

Suction cups or magnets? I've seen glass bowls but never a cool rock like that.

It most likely is because you aren't using root tabs. Swords are really heavy root feeders. You could do DIY root tabs with osmocote plus. They work pretty well for me and they're cheap to make.

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...
