- Moving this from the Shrimp Forum -
here is the previous set up
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...
video shows the system set-up. Video was made by Askoll but shows the tank pretty well
