decided on shrimp. Rili shrimp and the SSS red crystals. the rili should be doing great all year round in this tank, and the crystals will be on a winter basis venture because of temperature issues in summer.
For now the tank is still cycling after one month. Ammonia is at 2ppm, 0ppm nitrite, 10ppm nitrate. 6.3pH and 107TDS.
I upped the photoperiod from 4 hours to 6 hours today since the blyxa started to grow in nicely. all of it survived. Put in some floaters.
I'll leave it to cycle, and the rili shrimp go in.
Pic updates later.
