Benibachi soil?


Max - when are you going to start selling the soil? I believe you mentioned one time that it would be in August.

Hey guys,

We have been very busy in renovating the new facility, more tanks = more shrimps. We should have Ebi-ten/ Nishiki-Ebi PRL/PBL mixed band, Grade A -S in the next shipment.
Unfortunately we haven't been able to import soil yet. USDA has gotten much more strict since they just banned akadama. They already turned us down twice.
I'm sure you can find other substitute such as ADA Aqua Soil. I have seen Nishiki and Hakata shrimp rooms. They use ADA in all of their tank together with undergravel filter + sponge.











Anyone interested in their light pendant?
It calls Vortice Spiral - 30W compact fluorescent. 16x16x31cm.
Price will be around $80.

Max Kenji.

Nice tanks! All those shrimp are awesome, I am interested in a light, single should be fine for a 10g maybe? Does it need to be suspended or does it come with a mounting bracket?

Thanks!
