Thanks so much! I'm so excited to work on scapes and start working on getting some successful colonies of shrimp running. That part I might need help with! I'm going to try to do everything 100% right and by the books. Hopefully that'll net me some shrimp success ;D.

Thanks! Yeah I shook it pretty vigorously and it stayed in place rather well.

Next time I do any hill I'll be sure to do an egg crate. Using 8lbs of substrate for a 4g tank is a bit much lol.

Cali. I'm in WNY.

Having a bit of an issue with this zoomed 501. It would SEEM it is having noise issues. So it's time to get a new canister or figure out a different option. This is is horrendous. And my fiddling with the impeller only made it worse.

Oh a zoomed? That might work out. How much does it work out to be with the 25%?

Honestly I love them for any size tank under 5-6 gallons

Oh nice! Definitely let me know then! If the price is right, I'll pounce. Mine is only broken because I left it in the care of family and they let it run dry then called me confused as to why it was making weird noises.

Never hesitate to order from Han! I have a $200 plant order coming in from him. I'm extremely excited.

I nixed the moss wall though. It wasn't going to be the best in this tank. Maybe in the cubes! Yes that's it! Maybe I'll do a purely moss cube!

Yeah 72 is perfect for them lol.

I will do it I'm thinking mini Xmas moss. I'd say mini weeping but it grows far too slow.
