    Hey!

    I was advised to reach out to you about purchasing Crystal Shrimp? I live in Sparks, NV and was told you live in the area. I've been in the hobby about two years now and have two planted tanks, one 35 gallon, established for about 2 years and then a 6 gallon that is 3 1/2 months old. It's been fully cycled now for a little over a month and I want to add some crystal shrimp.

    I'm more interested in Crystal Red's or Blues, but I would love to know what options you have. Let me know if you have any available, I would love to support you and pick your brain if you have some time.

    Hey Clownplanted! Hope all is well with the shrimp. A while back I think you had tipped me off to a test tube holder you bought on Amazon. Which one was it you snagged?

    Hey there Pal,

    Hope the weekend is a good one for you, I have to work tomorrow. One of the dubious pleasures of working in the communications industry.

    A good friend of the family has put me in touch with a welding supply company here in town that will rent me a 20lb cylinder for $8 a month until I can afford to buy it from him. While I am renting it all refills are free, not that I imagine there will be many out of a 20lb cylinder.

    Of course the next thing I need to find is a regulator, I nearly fell over backwards when I looked at the Aqua Tec models on Amazon. There was one used at $250 and that was the lowest one I saw, so I am going to check out Ebay and see whats what on there.

    Any suggestions on what I should look to pay, and would a single gauge one be as good as a dual gauge, I know two thins about all of this, nothing and beggar all!

    So any and all suggestions are more than welcomed.

    Thanks in advance

    Yours sincerely

    Steve

    Nothing yet. I am hoping soon though. I am going to try bacter AE next month, see if that helps. But the Color is popping!!!
    Another Thing too is, I have a 60l drum for my R/O water mixed with SS GH+ I made the TDS 160ish, but the GH is reading at 7. the Container says something like 200 tds should get around 6GH. Is that right?

    R/O water is 13 TDS I put three full Scoops to get 160ish. Should I shoot for a lower ´TDS?
