My harlequin rasbora don't generally bother my red rcs but I can't be sure they aren't eating shrimplets. I was considering trying out dwarf emerald rasbora with my next take setup.

I feed them Hakari Seaweed Extreme and Hikari Sinking Wafers. Usually a wafer or little pinch of seaweed pellets once a day. A few of them seemed to be obsessed with filtering stuff off the surface...

I like the look before and after. I don't know which I would go with.

What shrimp have you got in there? That one looks like an insect, or I'm missing two sets of legs.

WOAH man!

I had a scare when I left the heater and pump off over the weekend after I did a water change and simply forgot to reconnect them.

Maybe I've gotten used to them but the shopvac filter doesn't stand out as much as the picture makes it look.

If it's much more powerful than the stock light I think you could go with medium to low light plants.

My Spec3 with the stock light is doing fine with two nana and three wendentii. They've been...

If you mention to Fluval that you think something is wrong with the pump they will ask for a receipt and send you another without hassle. I had an issue with my light and they were very helpful.

That looks great. It will be nice to see some pictures of it grown in.

Did you hotglue the slate together? Isn't there room behind it for the heater?

Are you thinking of any livestock?

With 4 gallons I'd say it's betta/snails or shrimp/snails.

Yep, I was right. The LPS had 12lb bags of Floramax at $6.77. So I got all three. I would have liked 5 or 6 but I'm pretty happy with this medium as it is.
