ha-ha You called me out and you have a good eye. I got the intake with the other ADA shipment and was just putting it on until I figured out if I wanted to use it on that tank or just wait till I set up the 60P.

Also, thanks for looking at my tank well enough to know that something that small of a change! Thanks for complementing it also! I think it looks really good for a regular ten gallon especially compared to other peoples ten gallons.

Question: I am having problems with keeping Neo shrimp/ Amano shrimp/ Nerites/ Assassin snails and the bladder snails I do have some have white parts of their shell.... I used to have cherries in it about a year ago until I had the ammonia spike from adding the ADA soil.

Tank Specs: Ten gallon
Fluorite Black capped with ADA Amazonian
Root tabs made from Osmocote Plus...
EI dosing from GLA ferts with weekly 40% WC's
Paintball CO2 with 1-2 BBS and drop checker stays a yellowish green.

All the levels are in check with TDS right at 500 and PH of 6.8-7.

Have dosed Algae eliminator but that was back in March.

Any suggestions? Need to buy RO filter?

Default Update time!

First and second picture is of my ADA furniture.
Third Picture is of my tank.
Fourth is of my HC in the tank still in pots pearling but any clue on how to get my HC or DHG to get a better green color or why it is covered in the brown dust like substance?
Fifth is of a snail in my tank that I have noticed that the shells are partially white and seem to be the same cause of why I am having problems keeping shrimp ALIVE?!?!?! Any ideas???
Sixth is the newest addition LOL

The only thing I don't care for in the 36 is the blue gravel. But I have always been more into the natural browns or black myself.

Agreed, the 36 was my "starter tank" that I got into plants with and my wife like the blue rocks and since I have SO many tanks, she got to pick the gravels in that one haha BUT in all honesty, I love my wife, she is a doll!

I like your 10G. I just read through the whole thread and got to see the progression. It looks like it has come a long way.

I'm just getting into planted tanks myself. you can check out my thread in the Signature below. If you visit it, you will see that I'm a newbie that has been asking tons of questions.

I like that diffuser, I need to get one for my tank.


Anyways, good luck with your tanks. Where is that ADA tank you bought a while back. Hope it's coming along!

The tank has come pretty far since you started. I think it looks great.

Thanks for the complements!!! I am about to do the regular weekly water changes LOL. I still need to set-up the 60P BUT I am not sure on what to use as lighting for it... so I am trying to do it correctly the first time and do it right . I am also about to buy the 90P set up tomorrow that is listed on the for sale section here! MAYBE! Here is my new baby girl that loves fish as much as I do! Here is pic my wife took to prove it! She really enjoys the 125 G in the garage floor because it is eye level with angels in it LOL SO MANY TANKS, not enough time or money for full set ups for all of them LOL
