Arrow ADA Mini-M: S+ CRS Journal (Updated 1-11-09)

Well no major changes, just waiting and hoping that the hc will stay rooted and hopefully start spreading. Currently I have not started the weekly flourish supplement. For now i think the eco-complete should be good enough as far as nutrients, and i wont have to worry about algae.

Im going to make another trip to target, i dont think i was looking in the right section of the store. Will post pics of the new stand when i get it.

First Picture as of 12-25-09:

In an uncycled tank don't expect those shrimp to last long. Also not supporting the tnak on all 4 corners properly is asking for a broken tank.

Filter media in power-head and substrate is all well established from the 5 gallon they have been in for the past month.

Still watch and test for a Mini Cycle as they happen alot from moving from one tank to another.

The tank will look great but I also think you should slow down a little. In new tanks cycles can and generally will occur when they're set up even small cycles can harm shrimp.

In my experience Yellow shrimp are a bit more sensitive than their other relatives as well.

Also, Why are you sitting your super duper expensive tank on something that is smaller than it? You're going to have a wet floor and dead shrimp soon.

I am going to try to buy a new stand tonight for it, and I'm familiar with cycling fish-tanks so im keeping a close eye on the shrimp.

Buy the stand like the one I have for my Mini M. Many people have bought the same stand has mines. They have it at target for 39.99 I think.

Just got back from target, had no luck finding a stand, going have to keep looking. In the meantime i'm going to place it under something big enough to support all its corners.

The shrimp are all doing very well in the new tank, water parameters are all looking good as well.

Any suggestions as far as aquascaping?

You need some expensive ADA Lily pipes, some costly ADA Aquasoil, also a $200 ADA light on that to complete the ada look.

Just kidding.

I think bigger rocks would be nice. And more pronounced edges would be nice too.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Kayen- I agree. I have to do a better job with adding water, since I'm somewhat responsible for the less pronounced cliff. Im going to try to reshape it soon.

Zeldar- Nice profile pic. And yes its a dallas cowboys locker ive had in my room since i was a kid. looks like its going to be replaced very soon, although it is a classic.

Looks sick. You should photograph again now that the dust has settled.
