Thanks.

Feel free to take a look at my 45-F journal that's linked in my signature.

Ammonia is dropping steadily. Haven't seen a Nitrite reading. Here's hoping I don't have to add ammonia to keep things going until they cycle.

These are very dangerous! Oh my! How am I going to keep my MTS under control when there are awesome nano tanks like this that I could find space for somewhere? I don't use the bar between my kitchen and dining room...I could fill that up with these! Eek!



Nice work. I will be excited to see how these progress.

I think you've come to the wrong place if you're looking for help controlling Multiple Tank Syndrome.

Sweet tanks, you're not helping my MTS right now. Then again, I've got a stack of empty rimless tanks in my garage.

Figure out how to keep the clip on from siphoning? My finnex does it, now I can't fill my tank all the way up.

Have tried everything to stop siphoning. No dice.

Gonna have to switch to different fixtures. These are too strong as it is, so I'm not gritting my teeth too much over it.

Caved.

Ordered two Wave-Point Microsun fixtures. The small 3-watt version. Should have them by the end of the week and I guess we'll see them how they'll work out.

Thanks!

I don't know about spectacular but they're certainly fun.

Yes, Spectacular is the word for them. I'm so jealous of all your shrimp too!

Love it when unexpected/strange plants randomly grow from Aquasoil:

Moved five of my lower grade PRLs into one of the cubes a bit ago:





If they do well, I'll move over 5-10 more shrimp with way more red on them.

Hoping to move some Goldens/Snow Whites into the other cube tomorrow, as I have the urge to redo one of my 3gal tanks. Maybe. Or maybe I'll put PRLs in there, as well. Still debating internally.
