I tried to find a replacement strip light for this tank but couldn't find one. If someone is able to find one can you give me a link to it? Thanks





I received the PRL shrimp for this tank-- they are itty bitty, which I hear is good.

They all settled in well, no losses.


Can you tell if the light is out vs the power supply... if you have extra power supplies on hand with the same specifications you can try to wire it in and see if the light comes back to life.

Some of the leds are still working and some are dark. Not sure why this is.

I may actually have room for some in the near future. I have a pair of apisto panduro's that I'm going to try my hand at breeding, they were very small when I first got them, and the female was stressing out the male (she was bigger). They are about the same size now and probably about 6 months old, so they may be ready, if they are not successful or something goes wrong I may have to switch gears.

I havent updated this journal in ages! I wanted to share a couple pictures of some plants that I got from @Immortal1 . We traded plants for shrimp .
Here are a few of the plants that were sent- on the left: the pretty reddish/pinkish toned one in front ( I forgot what its called), Lobelia Cardinalis ( Love!), and the Hygrophila balsamica ( this one is beautiful and grows very vigorously!)

Thank you Linn!

Looking great Amy! That Hygrophila balsamica looks right at home in there. Now the fun part - keeping it trimmed :-)
Not sure how fast those Lobelia Cardinalis are going to grow in your tank, but if they pick up any speed like in my high tech tank you will be giving away the excess in a few months :-)
The plant in the front left is some version of Alternanthera Reineckii. Interesting little plant as it really does not like my high tech tank, but seemed to be very happy in my 20g low tech tank.
Will have to see if I can get any pics of the new shrimp on my end one of these days

also, like your light - have 2 of those over the 20g low tech tank. Really like the bluetooth app that goes with them.

Yes! I can see those H balsamica branches starting to spread out wider and wider- lol! How do I propogate this plant? Do I take off these branches and place them in substrate? Would they, then, grow roots?

I hope the L. Cardinalis do increase, would love to put some in my other tanks. Such an interesting plant. Different than what I have.

Oh, thats right-- A . Reineckii. It has lost some color since you sent it too me, sadly. Its still very pretty, though. I dont have a really high fertilization routine, maybe thats why it isnt so vibrant. I have been fertilizing my shrimp tanks with the Thrive specific to tanks with shrimp. Maybe I should add some Seachem root tabs around it. That might help.



This Fluvel nano light Ive only had for a few weeks now, but Im really liking it. Especially the colors. It makes the plants, shrimp, etc... look very nice.

Not sure on your questions regarding H balsamica branches or propogation. I have simply been cutting off the bottom and replanting the top.
Guessing @burr740, @Greggz and several others would have a better input
