    ADA Journey

    So I took the plunge and went out and bought a 60L ADA Cube Garden aquarium off a shop in Melbourne who was doing a sale on ADA aquariums and equipment. I thought it was about time I started advancing my skills as a shrimp keeper. After keeping RCS, YCS etc for the past 6 months and having a successful breeding colony, I ventured in to the CRS/CBS a couple of weeks ago in an already established 30cm cube tank - they all seem to be doing just fine. So over the course of the next 4-6 weeks whilst my new tank is cycling I am going to learn all I can about CRS/CBS to make sure I limit the amount of stuff ups. Once everything is established and I feel the tank is ready to rock and roll, I will look at adding a TB or 2 to existing selected stock. My ideal kind of set up for the new tank is to be an excellent visual tank along with a breeding ground for many shrimplets. I am unsure of what plants I am going to use if any, besides some mosses and perhaps some anubias on some driftwood. My main concern at the moment is what filter I will be using. As I have limited space and I don't want to clog the counter up too much (I cannot put for example a canister filter hidden underneath the tank), I am conscious of the tank and area around the tank having minimal items hanging around. Tank Setup Tank: ADA Cube Garden Superior - W60×D30×H36 (60 litres) Substrate: ADA Power Sand, ADA Amazonian Normal and ADA Amazonia Fine Heater: TBD Filter: TBD - Can just a sponge filter work Lights: TBD most likely UP Aqua 60cm LED My plan is to follow exactly what the ADA substrate tells me to do in terms of cycling the tank and water changes. Before I get started I will need to find a filter that meets my needs. I know I can always add plants later but I am sure it is best to get them in there and settled ASAP. Any design ideas and/or filter suggestions would be great. I will keep you updated as I go along......

    TDS question

    Hi Guys, At the start of the week my TDS was around 130 now at the end of the week it is around the 115 mark - I will be doing a water change on the weekend with RO water and GH+ with a TDS of 130. My question is should I be worried about it dropping 15 points during the week?
  4. I went away up north for a few weeks and the shrimp were very busy while I was gone. Pics taken on my phone so are not super clear.
