The weekend is coming up. Do you think you might have time this weekend to take a few PAR readings? I'm seriously considering one of these.

It's a shame that you're phasing out the wood stands. Those were really great looking stands.

Would I buy this one? No, because of the comments already mentioned (e.g. not being able to hide...

I can't honestly comment on if 30% WC is going to be sufficient. I'd guess so, but the only real way to tell is to do a nitrate test at the end of the week BEFORE a water change. If the nitrate...

NOOOOOOOO!!!! Do NOT adding anything like baking soda to water that's meant for shrimp! Plus shrimp don't need KH. I keep shrimp, whether it's pumpkins or CRS in 0-1 KH.

It would really help if...

I had 10 CRS in a 1.5 gallon tank sitting on my desk at work and they bred. Got as many as 30 juvies before I sold them to Ocean Aquarium in SF.

You know, it's funny that you mention that. I too have the same tank setup with about 15 CPDs and some PFRs, and the shrimp population is growing steadily.

Even though there are a school of CPDs...

I forgot to mention that you need to do the treatment for two weeks, and then do a 50% water change. Seriously, if the Maracyn treatment doesn't work, I'd go back to trying Melafix for two weeks....

Yup, that's my experience exactly. When introducing nerites into a new tank, they try to burrow and hide because they're stressed. In a few days, they'll be out and about doing there thing.

Betta Maniac is right. These little mini ramshorn snails are pretty freakin' tiny. Like 1 mm in diameter. Hard to pick out of the tank because they're so stinkin' tiny. A total nuisance much more so...

If you can't because it's too taxing right now, I completely understand. Just refund me the money.
