Very nice. I want to do a high tech too, but I need to shuffle some things around first. Might be a while.

Just dosed the 10gal with .15~grams fenben, the first dose killed about 80-85% so figured id better step it up for the survivors. Mixed with 28ml tank water.


Cough... wrong thread but i dosed the shrimp jar with .1g. Havent seen anything but ill have shrimp there in 2 days so didnt want to have to go threw this again. Will feed twice a week but smaller chunks.

Baby shrimp are always a good thing.

No time to do full update but... Added plants to 10g, re arranged a million times... Dunno if its final positioning.

Question. Tied twigs, keep or go

I bought 2 oto's for the 10g!! I always wanted some but never were in locally. Now im just scared theyll eat the tiny babies, but theres literally 50~ so i think ill be ok, but they are being shy so no picturees for now...

Well i do have a pic of me dripping them for an hour



Also picked up 2 more bottles of co2 boost, and Seachem Replenish.



Also the first time ive seen this in a store, so grabbed it. I have a heavy heavy stash of shrimp food i may do a small raok soon

The oto's will be fine with the shrimp. It is the guppies I would worry about. They will eat anything that will fit in their mouths.
