    My ten gallon started to leak. Upgrade time! Bought a new 20 gallon and painted the back black.

    This time I did it right. The substrate is 10 pounds of Profile, 15 of Flourite, and prolly 5 pounds of sand in there, too. Theres one gallon of sand on the top in the front. When the water clears, I'll painstakingly plant my HC strand by strand... I know i'm scared too...








    My magnum 350 won't come untill tuesday or wednesday, so i'll have to look at the Flourite (I drained the well washing it..) and sand cloud. My 65 watt PC should come in by wednesday. then I won't have to use lights that are 4 inches too small!










    My lone otto... his boyfriend (Yes, he's gay because I said so) killed himself when he drank hydrogen peroxide.... He couldn't live in a world that's only 10 gallons... if only he would have waited I'll have to get him a couple of playmates.





    AAAHHH!! A SWARM OF CHERRIES!!!!!





    Here you can see the flourite and the sandbed. I REALLY hope the Proserporcupine whatever it's called lives. Mermaid weed is so much easier to say....






    Will the cherries and otto make it? Will there be an ammonia spike? Will the water ever clear? Will Daft Punk ever play at MY house?!

    find out next time on... mysteries of the deep.....

    blah!

    Wow! you don't see that everyday

    I don't understand why you're having so much problems with your aquarium. Is it because those fish and shrimp need specific environments?

    I'm not really having problems... The tank leaked so I had to replace it and I figured I'd get a bigger one.

    i had a tiny bit of BGA so I killed it using H202 and the otto got into it somehow.

    Cherries are sensitive but they are really tough. I like Crystal Reds more but I can't afford $150 for ten shrimp...

    How much did you pay for the cherries? Aquariums are much more expensive then i remember!

    IIRC, I think I payed 20-25 for 10 so that's about 75 dollars worth right there. I traded some plants for some, too.

    That's "wholesale" since I got them from people who breed them. At a petstore, IF you can find them they would be about 3 bucks a pop.

    2 or 3 of mine are carrying eggs. The females are the big fat red ones. the males are the light red smaller ones (although most of these shrimp are teenagers anyway).

    this isn't really a fish tank. It's a shrimp tank. I just use otto's because they eat algae and don't bother even the tiniest baby shrimp (which are liveborn!).

    I think I only feed once a week. I sterilized the rockwork so i'll have to feed algae wafers for a while but I expect the diatoms to grow enough to feed the otto (soon to be ottos)

    Well I wrapped a swiffer around the intakes of the filters (i'm using 2 hang on filters until by magnum comes..yay!) and they decreased the cloudiness by about 75%! My homotto has his color back and I don't see any dead cherries so that's good.
