Soon I need to grow out some moss and was looking at the stainless steel wire mesh squares. I'm assuming this stuff is shrimp safe and doesn't rust or effect water parametres, only I'm a bit reluctant to put metal in a tank. Can you share your experiences in this and if there is a better/other...
Nearly bought everything to start up a three tank shrimp setup, I'm thinking about using RO Water, probably a silly question to ask, but would appreciate some help.
RO Water is water that has been stripped of all the bad stuff that tap water has in it right? This would mean when using RO (and...
As the title says are these two products necessary under the substrate for a Taiwan Bee setup? I have read a lot of threads on various forums and lot's of people seem to use this method.
I also read another thread mentioning someone had an issue with foul smelling water after using BeeMax.
I been browsing a website that is selling some really nice wood called 'Horn Wood'.
My question is the pricing, is this really worth the price they are asking?
Seems really expensive, maybe because it has the ADA name slapped on it?
A 30cm piece is around £30!
Is it really hard to come by in...
Ok as you may or may not know, I haved saved up some cash for tank number 1 of 3 which is going to be more than likely a sakura or pfr tank. I was going for an ADA 60P to keep water quality easier to maintain, but I'm drawn to going with a mini garden either a M or an L and maybe in the future...
I been reading on various places that Anubis Nana is poisonous to CRS, RCS and other Shrimp species.
I see many Shrimp owners with this plant in their tanks and lots of other people saying that it's just a myth and this plant will not effect shrimp in anyway.
I even heard a rumour about one...
I'm a little concerned which substrate to use for RCS, namely Sakura or painted fire red but I assume all types of RCS are the same.
Ideally I wanted to use ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia, I'm told this this buffers the water PH down and I read that RCS like a higher PH level.
Well, I made a post like this here about two years ago and can't seem to find it again.
So I though I would start a new one as I know you all have some awesome Shrimp tanks out there.
Don't be shy let's see your masterpieces :)
Along with my new Ecco Pro 200, I want to run a small sponge filter as well, I was just wondering if there's a specific brand of sponge filter thats better than the rest? I see the brand 'JAD' showing up a lot on ebay is this a good make or are they all the same quality no matter which brand I...

I'm going to be using a hanging reptile light/s over my future shrimp tank and I have a couple of questions regarding lighting.
This is the light I'm going to use which takes screw bulbs Max 150W load.
The bulb I was thinking of using is a LED Spot Light Bulb E27 Screw PAR20 Warm White
I heard of people using stainless steel wire mesh squares in their shrimp tanks to grow their moss on, call me stupid (actually don't lol) but this metal defiantly doesn't rust or deteriorate?
Also this type of metal doesn't interfere with water parameters at all?
I seen some on ebay, I just...
Ok need some more sound advice before I start spending hard earned cash lol
I was gonna go for an ADA Cube Garden 45p - L45 x D27 x H30cm
now I just can't decide between that or a 60p - L60 x D30 x H36cm
The price difference is minimal, price isn't really a problem though, I just want the...
I emailed The Green Machine today about the Eheim 2213 external filter.
So has the eheim 2213 has been discontinued? Anyone had any experiences with Eheim's new Ecco Pro range?
Is the Ecco Pro 200 really as good as the old 2213?
I saw a video on Youtube and I didn't see a spraybar...
I was going to go for ADA Aquasoil Amazonia Powder for three shrimp tanks I have planned (RCS, CRS and maybe Blue Bolt) then I read a little more about this soil and heard that after about a years use in the tank it turns into a muddy mush. Is this true?
Also reading more on ADA Aquasoil it...
