I've got it all set up and cycling. Hmm, I'll take a few pictures and post them when I get home.
I'm using fish food to create ammonia. It looks really odd, like it has mold spores on it (the rotting food). Like dandelions that one might blow on. I'm guessing this is just something that happens to rotting stuff.

Definitely post up when you get yours all pretty!

Well, I deviated a bit. I had fully intended to order RCS, but while at Petsmart buying dog food, I saw ghost shrimp for 32 cents. I floated them in the tank for an hour or so and then freed them in there. The tank is at my office, which is closed on weekends, so I just freed them and left.. Tomorrow morning I shall see if they are all present and accounted for.

One of the females had eggs when in the bag from the store, but I did not see them anymore by the time I got to the office with them. I imagine she lost them during the 20 minute drive. I'm hoping maybe the egg-laden one was hiding behind a plant or something, eggs intact. I just thought it was kinda neat to have a Mama.

Camera is in my purse, so I will try my best to get a good picture tomorrow.

Dome, how is yours working out?
