Shrimp Rack Build Half done Pic Updates 1/27


INFO EDIT 1/27 changed some design


So over the weekend I bought 2 pre fabed rack at the depot. 48" X72"X24"
I have one up now as the pictures below show. I will be adding 48" T8 lighting to them and will discontinue the use of Clip on CFL. I use Jebo heaters in all of them. I am using different filters and other stuff in all of them.

I use Bee shrimp GH+ & Azoo Vitiam Plus & Mineral in all water changes. I also have 2 IAL leaves in all tanks, and dose Melafix & Pimafix in all tanks durring water changes but the TB tank. I chage water with RO for the OEBT/NEO YELLOWS, BTOE/BLUE VELVETS, CRS SS-SSS, PRL CRS, TB (1 Shadow Panada, 1 BKK 1 Bar, 1 Black Panda, 2 Ruby Pandas) and 50/50 RO with the PFRS

Right now I have the below



Tank1
20L PFRS With a ton of Subwassertang, and Taiwan and Java moss. Also have Mineral rock in the tank
PH7.2 GH5 KH0-1 TDS180-240 74* Max
Everything is doing well babies are popping out like hot cakes, berried females are to many to count. New molting every day. I am using All the BW products for food, and supplements. I am loving the result. It has MGOPS mixed with eco complete topped with 3" of FSS. Use a SUNSUN 302B canister and a AC30. Canister is full of Matrix media, the filter floss that comes with it, and has 1 large bag of purigen. Everything is great when my brain is working, see other post about my mistake.




Tank2
20L OEBT& NEO Yellows Fissidins moss pads, Taiwan moss on 2 sets of breedings tubes, Java moss mesh pads. Also have Mineral rock in the tank
PH7.0 GH5 KH0-1 TDS 175-200 68-74 max 74 nothing higher. I am using FSS 3" with a AC30 and another SUNSUN302B Canister is full of Matrix media, the filter floss that comes with it, and has 1 large bag of purigen. I am using some BW, Shirakura, Azoo, Ebi-ten,mosura, and Benibachi. I have a little mixture of them I use.



Tank3
15G Pure line tank. Taiwan moss tied to breeding tubes. Will have the same moss pads as above. Also have Mineral rock in the tank. I am using UP-Aqua Shrimp sand, a eheim 2213 and a AC20. They both have extra Seachem matrix media in them and one has a 100ML mag of Purigen.

This is fluval shrimp stratum with a white pool filter sand cap. This has 1 AC30 with the extra Matrix media and one with a 200ML purigen pack, and a eheim 2213.

Looks like your 10 gal has an oversized heater and your long tank has an undersized one based on length. What wattage do they use?

Also what toe of digital thermometers are installed. I have traditional ones but fine them impossible to glance at with such small text... May go digital seeing your setup.

Did you use the wood shelving that came with the rack system or replace it with plywood?

Can you link me to the rack on the home depot website?

Also do you know the dimension for the smaller $79 one?

Thanks a bunch!

the $79 one has shallower shelves. instead of 24", they are 18" with all other dimensions being the same.
