Askoll 11G Return To Shrimp Journal

- Moving this from the Shrimp Forum -

Back again!

here is the previous set up

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...999&highlight=

packed in the shrimp tank and went to discus for a while..

Back to Shrimp now!





really like this new tank, everything is integrated, filter and heater all neat and tidy. even a line in for the co2 kit they sell. which claims to last 1 year based at 4bpm



came with a Gloss white stand too



Has a built in timer and buttons for the light






Flap for feeding

The plan is to let the tank cycle, Place some small round rocks in front of the wood. cover them in Java moss, and Xmas moss and let the moss spread to the wood naturally.

As I did well with Red Cherry's last time I am going to look at maybe some again but I will more than likely go for Crystals this time. Providing I can find someone in the UK selling them at a reasonable cost.

The Substrate is JBL Manado, haven't used it before as I had Akadama last time.

I don't think I will bother with the Co2 as last time ended up gassing a load of shrimp with one of those spray can systems....

Link to the Co2 accident!







cat seems to like it at least...

Wow what an amazing tank!
I've never owned an aquarium that was so detailed and precise, most were used.
Very beautiful, and the wood is very dramatic, can't wait to see the moss crawl up.
Good choice on the crystals, i had a cherry infestation once.
Also, I can't believe it's an 11 gallon?

Thanks! I have put some cherry's in there already. I am going to get the crystals in a couple of weeks. 44L I think thats equal to about 11g?

Thanks. The tank is made by Askoll. I have only seen the one supplier in the UK but they are available online too.

I will have to look them up.

I almost got a Biorb instead of this, glad I chose this instead.

Mini Java fern is in. Haven't tethered it to anything though.





Carrying a bubble









Going to leave it a couple of weeks now then order 10 crystals.

I will probably get a few ottos too.

And I am ordering the moss.

Can't decide what moss to go for. Java Xmas or willow?
