Hey Ian, welcome to the hobby! Seems like you have a bit of algae (the fuzzy stuff and the brown on the glass). It's normal, especially for a newer setup. The trick is figuring out the balance...

I too keep embers with red cherries. My population has increased, though not the same as when I had the shrimp by themselves. I do have 2 sparking gouramis in there though....

100% agree with Evilgrin on the limewood. I used it as well and got great diffusion.

This is what I do. A small pump and a sponge filter will cost you like 12 bucks. Sorry your fish has passed, but don't let this stop you from trying again. We all make mistakes.

Also, I...

I would go with a school of micro fish and either shrimp or pygmy cories. And I can tell you endlers are ridiculous when it comes to breeding. I've traded of dozens recently, and my population...

Yes, but they are opening a warehouse to distribute to local lfs's in the area. We'll just have to see how that works out. They are even talking about opening to the public once or twice a month.

I'd be bugged out!

There is also a Finnex clamp on fixture that uses a single CFL. I think it's like $40. I actually use the Fuge-R on a little 2.5 gallon and get really good results. I think I paid $35 for it.

There's no harm in using Prime to condition your tap water. I'd say 90% of the members on here use it. I think you should be ok with the 6.0. It's low, but not dangerously low. The only problem...
