When I get closer to adding shrimp/fish I may bring this back up. I feel like I've still got 2-3 weeks at least until I'm ready for water and inhabitants.

I got the 1/4" piece of acrylic and had my friend cut it for me (and do some other stuff which I'll show in some photo's when I get home). Definitely not going to have a sagging problem anymore.

Looks like just the molting. If it's translucent it should just be the molt, if it's opaque and white then it's a dead skrimp.

If the fish aren't gasping, you should be fine.

Question for you:...

Thanks guys. I'll keep it and see what it looks like (although I'm colorblind so I probably wouldn't notice the difference between 2500K and 10000K) :)

4100K vs 6500K

Quick question. Ordered a replacement 13w CF bulb on Amazon. Description says 6500K. Bulb arrives and it's 4100K. Is that useful to me (in regards to a planted tank) AT ALL?
