Excellent move. You will be plugging the water circulator into this, then?

"Yet while the floor may not be ruined from an overflow,
the living waters thereby displaced upon the floor
resulteth in the emptying of tanks,
and the killing of the livestock therein."

I contact one Bay seller and ask him for good price for 48 of them.
Total with shipping come to $8.5-9 each. If you ask me it was stupid move. Probably I should buy Cholla wood tide them with zip tie and cover them with moss.
On other hand shrimps lowe them Ėbabies and berried ones.
You can buy 24 -1 box if you need them.I donít know the price now.I can give you their e-mail .LMK

I like the look of the clay tubes and you don't have to worry about tannis.

I got my logs from here. They will make smaller ones if you ask, and their quality is very good, plus you can pick from three colors of clay. I use the standard $5 size one. Shrimp would like any of their caves or logs. They prefer one or both ends to be sealed or obscured visually with plants or moss, rather than wide open visually - this makes them feel more hidden and secure.

Lol. Patio mess. Don't look in my fish room.

Anyways I was wondering what did you use to keep substrate out of the 10" x 3.5" feeding zone. I love the idea.

I cut glass with desire size and glue it to the bottom with silicone. You have to sandpaper glass edges, thought.

Picture 1: How tanks layout looks like.
2: Filtration
3: Whole rack
There was a problem with pump at first. Eheim compact 3000+ was setup in suction mode and was positioned after filters in order to stay clean longer but filtration creates a lot of air bubbles. They cost
Pump to stop working number of times.
Now I move it before filters in pushing mode. I was concern about pressure and capabilities of Jagno prefilters but they are OK so far.
Thanks will house PFR, Pumpkin, Blue velvet and yellow shrimps.
Somebody post that Pumpkinís need different water parameters than rest of the neos but I donít remember what they were.
Iím looking for advice about what PH, GH and KH to keep in there?
