My first 14g NPT

Hi

Shrimps caught my fancy after seeing a discus breeder's CRS tank. I decided to go NPT route with MTS. Along with preparing MTS I had been cycling my new 14g tank (seeded with mulm and sponge from existing discus tank). Mid way in my first wet/dry in MTS process I got a bunch of plants ... so I had to leap into an accelerated plan. Dumped the semi-dry soil in a new 14g tank, capped with small grain gravel, planted all the new cuttings.

Your blyxa will make it....trust me. Those things are indestructible. And they will develop mile-long roots underneath your gravel in about a month.

Here's hoping! Would be great for the shrimp (when they arrive).
