    20 Gallon long work in progress

    Post by zeketaz on Mon Feb 06, 2012 6:02 pm

    This tank still looks good but isn't set up for shrimp...not enough hiding spots. So this is being redone to lol.

    Tank inhabitants are:

    7 dwarf puffers
    1 angel
    3 tangerine shrimp
    IDK how many mutt shrimp
    IDK how many red crystal shrimp are left. At least 3 they are hiding in the rocks.

    Well I am completely changing this tank out. Went out and bought a new tank and glass for a divider as I have Crystal shrimp and Tiger shrimp going in the same tank. I also just got the sand for it. All I need now is the couple decorations I am going to be using since I think Wednesday the divider will be put in and I will be spray painting the back and sides. Got to get pics rolling to. The stand will be getting a case built for it to and I may make a small canopy idk.

    Well got the back painted today and got everyone moved in to their spots. Only took 4 hours I think.

    Pics look terrible the tanks look terrible, but I don't care as long as the water quality is up to par.

    Whole tank shot


    Crs/Cbs and Blue Rili side


    Black tiger side for now

    Running into problems on the black tiger side Sad Guess the filter wasn't as established as I thought. The PH is crashed but showing no ammonia and Nitrite is off the charts.

    Lost 1 shrimp so I got filter squeezings and put that in and pulled the shrimp out and will be putting them in with the crystals till the tank gets right again. GRRRRR
