In the wiring diagram, it looked like the top lamp just piggy-backs off the yellow wires coming from the bottom lamp. Unless I'm missing something obvious (it's been a long day)?

Just out of curiosity, have you tried running just the Red Sun lamp by itself (i.e. 3 empty slots)?

I may have missed it, but how much are you wanting to cool the water?

You could always make a cheap nano chiller using a HOB filter (along with a couple other parts, obviously) and not have to...

I would use seltzer water. Club soda usually has some sodium bicarbonate in it as well, while seltzer water is just plain carbonated water.

Granted, the sodium levels wouldn't go up too much if...

If you are not going to use the stand or fish, then I would say not. If you do get it, good luck selling just the stand or just the fish.

Maybe someone else can chime in on this, but I would...

Good catch; that is also a good option. I don't know how that slipped my mind after all the plywood tanks I've read about on RC.

For a specific pump, you'll have to see its head loss chart to see how much GPH you'll be losing over that 5'5" and see if that still provides you with enough GPH.

There are ways to set up a...

Any epoxy is inert when fully cured. Well, we could split hairs with a couple epoxies, but I digress. Personally, I don't see why you would want to cover seiryu stone, unless you use a clear epoxy of...

That is odd. My old blackwater tank never showed high TDS readings, and that was after adding the water that I boiled the leaves in to make it darker. Never got over a TDS of 90.

Peat moss will lower your pH and soften it a bit, which could have an effect on the nitrification process.

What type of grow bed are you using? regular or floating?

Hopefully they survive!

I've used egg tumblers in the past for my African cichlids, but don't know if that would be an option for shrimp eggs. Hopefully someone will chime in.

This x10000000.

You'll be way better off with two (or more if your tank is huge) smaller heaters. That way you'll stand a better chance to catch one of them before the whole tank boils.
