    Default Aqueon Evolve 8 Shrimp Tank



    Sorry it is sideways...I keep rotating it, but it dosen't take

    My tank has finished cycling, just waiting for the RCS to get here tomorrow.
    Inert gravel over Old Sea Mud, RO/Di water with Mineral Plus, BT-9 and BioPlus
    Ammonia 0
    Nitrites 0
    Nitrates less than 10
    TDS 181
    PH 6.8

    I modded the filter, removed the pad, notched the bottom of some lexan, so it makes 2 chambers on the left side (sorry forgot to take pics)
    Coarse black sponge over the intake
    1st chamber floss over a Purigen bag
    2nd chamber filled with Matrix
    3rd chamber the rest of the Matrix in 2 bags over the pump. (1litre total)
    overkill I know

    will have to wait untill tomorrow to see how they like it.

    for now a pic of my Bamboo Shrimp in my kids' tank

    I got my cherries, 20 high grade red...things are so tiny, not sure they were even in the bag!
    they hide well, there are a few that are big enough to be easy to see, and a few more that are getting big enough to find if you look.
    white algae is growing on the plants, I pull the stuff that is up higehr off the plants, may need to get some Amanos to help out untill the cherries get bigger. The nerites just can't keep up.
    thinking of adding some micro thai crabs, jut because
    maybe a green cardina species.
