on the request of chrislewistx, that I should make a journal here is my journal.
I recently had my 10g planted tank crash, let me give everyone here some advice don't use a rod iron stand as a get up out of bed when your doctor is trying you on a new bed and you don't have the streach to get out to call for help. well I have at the tank go crashing wasn't able to save the fish or plants.
well today I was at the aug. meeting of dfwapc, and guest what it was on shrimp, and I always wanted to try shrimp. well I had no clue but there was door prices.
one was brought by texgal. a jbj pico with light,heater,and filter. guess who won it.
this one is going to be on my desk away from the bed and be very careful when next to my lap top.
here is my 3 gallon JBJ pico build.
my plan is to have a mini riccia carpet, with blyax japanica as mid ground, and some type of colorful stem as back ground thinking rotella..
hard scape will be a piece of driftwood I have just got to cut it down a little bit, and figure a way to keep it from floating.
lighting is a the lighting that came with the jbj tank. stock 13w power compact light
filter I think is also not sure, drinda what was used on this tank???
substrate will be seasoned ada (will I still get an amonia spike?) might mix some seachem florite substrate in it too. from crowman(mike)
fish/inverts. planing for some cherry shrimp :shock:
ferts liquid. just don't use seachem florish because of the copper. what ferts do I use?
photos I will have as soon as I can take them and setup.. still need to find netting for the riccia carpet, and some rotella.
