  2. Shrimp Rack time!

    Brilliant read! Sorry to hear about the shrimpicide. Keep up the good work,
  3. Have been unable to create an account with both Gmail and hotmail.
  4. Hey @ageofaquariums it hasn't changed my issues. If you know anyone that runs the admin there pls get their details. My latest Comms from them said my registration application did not meet their requirements?! Rejected. I asked why, but no reply as of yet.
  5. @vsimo same for me here on Aquariumlife. I have also attempted to send email through the help portal several times to no avail. I think you need to know the secret handshake.

    Black n Blue Neos!
  7. I think there is a new wave of young guns hitting the streets. With their high tech kit and the wyfys on the internets.

    Had my first caridina juvies drop a few days ago. Stoked to see a few TB's hatched in there. Been a wee learning curve from just regular RCS, but glad I took the plunge!

    Cheers @inkevnito! No these shaky shots are taken with my DSLR, mostly in the mornings, pre coffee! Check my little wild neo.

    Nice one mate! RCS is where it started for me, in a previous incarnation of these tanks. They are hardy stock and look great in a planted tank. Let's see some pics!

    Hey @5h4d0w, Sure! These are about as nano as CRS will handle - 12 L second hand jobs I picked up off Gumtree. Timber tank is running shrimp sand substrate (with minimal water changes, it seems to have lost PH buffering ability quickly), and the stone is running Fluval stratum which is doing well. Both tanks are filtered with small spongies, but I have the stone tank also runnning a wee HOB for extra BB seeding when required. Both tanks are sharing a li'l 10W LED clip on, which is fine for this size. Getting a modest 'rack' set up in my garage in the coming months, as the Brisbane heat is about to knock the little tackers around hard, soon.
  12. Thanks @l2h this is kind of what I was expecting. Over how long would you aim to make the changes over?
  13. Thanks @joller, So you are suggesting just swap out the entire water column instantly from tap to RO?
  14. In short. Have Pygmy cories living in dechlorinated BNE tapwater (PH 7-7.5ish, TDS 220-240 from memory) I would like to move them to an RO setup with a decent drop of PH 6-6.5ish, TDS 120-180... I am aware the drop in one unit of PH is ten times higher on the acidity scale, so concerned the little tackers won't handle it. Has anyone done this kind of thing before? Possible over one day long drip acclimatisation? Several days? Never works? Advice and opinions are appreciated!
