I'm in the minority because I was never a fan of nerites. I had them climb out of my tank when the food supply was low and found them halfway across the room. I have a bit of a snail phobia in...

They'll be fine. Shrimp are shipped in tiny little bags that hold maybe a cup or so. Put some moss in with them for them to cling onto.

Well, my grand all-in-one thread never really took off of the town because of the timing. Shortly after I posted we decided to move. Well, relocate. My husband started job searching in other states...

Everything you read will say diatoms go away in time, but it depends on your water supply. If you have silicates in the water you're doing water changes with then you'll constantly be introducing...

I bought a larger bag of it on amazon, but I don't think it was 9 liters. It's still more expensive than ADA, but at least amazon has free shipping. They list the shipping weight as 10.6 pounds.

No, if anything I find it on the low side. No "fillers." I usually let it dissolve, check it with my tds pen, then end up adding a little more to get it around 150-160. I also add a little bit of...

I've been using it and like it. I currently have a berried CRS too. I do mix it up a day or two before I plan on doing my water change to make sure it's all dissolved though.

6g

This is my first real attempt at a minimalist/iwagumi style tank. It's currently in DSM with nothing but HC. I might add a little blyxa or some other small stems around the rocks once it's flooded,...

This tank's been doing okay. The plants are growing slow but steady. The only real issue is the bba on the wood. I have my co2 high (over 45ppm according to the kh/ph chart) so I'm not sure what's...

rocksmom's all-in-one tank thread - big, little, planted, reef, and shrimp!

Since I change my tanks around a lot I figured it was about time to just start an all in one thread instead of making a new one every time I change or get a new tank. I'll try to keep the first post...

I have a bunch of smaller manzanita that might work for you. We could do a trade for some food or supplements or something.

I'm jealous Jake. None of my shrimp have become berried yet. I think my house is too warm, the tank sits around 78-79. I need to get a fan or make one of those ghetto ice chest chillers. I might also...

No, I haven't. I don't belong to any of the reef forums, at least not yet. My husband belongs to the local San Diego one, but it's mostly used for the classifieds. I'll probably post updates on it...
