  1. Planted Nano Tanks
    So after really enjoying my shrimp bowl(see link in signature) I decided to make another, except this time put a betta in it. Then, I put some amanos in it. Then, I culled my cherry population in my 10g(also in sig.) and put some into here. Then I added some Otos. Here it is. Born: 10.8.11...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've been keeping RCS in a 10g with about 6 Ghost shrimp, and decided I wanted to have some more variety. So yesterday I picked up a Bamboo shrimp, and boy are they cool! And HUUUUGE! Today I went to see if I could find a male(I have a female) and there were no Bamboos at all. Instead I picked...
  3. Equipment
    So I really want to start a moss wall, but I can't seem to find anywhere locally that sells plastic mesh. I have a bunch of window screening, seems like it is stainless, but it worries me and I don't think I'll use it. Anyone know where I can find this stuff?
  4. Plants
    I just planted a new 10g a week ago, and the wisteria, which started out about 3/4 of the way to the top, has made it to the top. There are some roots growing out of the stem about 2" above the substrate, but not yet touching the substrate. What I am wondering is not *how* to trim the plants...
  5. Planted Nano Tanks
    I've had a bit of an explosion in the population of my RCS in my planted bowl(thread titled "Yet Another Planted Bowl") so I decided to use a 10g I had to create a new home for many of the shrimp. It was set-up on 8.29.11. Specs: 10 gallon standard(purchased used) Stock Hood w/2x13W CFL...
  6. Planted Nano Tanks
    A little while back I posted just a couple of pictures of my Newman inspired shrimp bowl within another thread, but I've had access to a VERY nice camera, and I've also had a good bit of growth, including the genesis of many young shrimp, so I thought I'd throw up some photos and start my own...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    After starting my shrimp bowl(2g) a couple months ago, I am finally, within the last week, seeing baby shrimp. I started with six RCS, 4F and 2M, and all of the females were impregnated. A week ago, the first ones hatched, and within the last day, the second batch has come into being. There are...
  8. DIY
    I have acquired a few tanks and HOB filters, and I got to thinking about ways to improve the filtration efficiency, but I want some opinions. It seems to me the problem with HOB's is that you need to buy the new inserts for each specific filter, and they are also quite small and don't seem like...
