Hello all!!!

About 2 weeks ago I got some nice mixed grade CRS with amazing color from Dukenabears to replace all the ones that died due to my water change incident. I had to come into work over the weekend, so I brought my SLR with me. Now I can finally show off this tank a little bit.

Enjoy:

Quick question:
What is your regiment on keeping CRS in such a small tank? What's your TDS, gh, kh, etc.?

I was thinking of buying some for my 3 gallon planted tank but the buyer dissuaded me from doing so because he claimed that a smaller tank will be very unstable. I'm currently keeping berried Fire reds in the same tank.

Thank you all!!! I love this little tank, so do my coworkers :)

I keep perams at:
KH = 0
GH = 5-6
TDS = 170
Temp = 74.5 (the temp is controlled to within 1/2 deg with an Arduino to keep from getting fast temp swings)
PH is buffered by Aquasoil to 6.7 ish

My biggest lesson is that I need to do only SMALL water changes, no more than 10% I did 20% fine for 2 months, then one waterchange I didn't reminirize the water exactly the same and killed the whole colony.
