2ft tank summary

Updated my blog and copied the entry here for those who lazy to go to my blog.

As my 2ft tank is nearing its cycling period, i should summarise it as below.

Fishy business cabinet tank, 60cm x 45cm x 45cm
Eheim filter 2028
Arctica 1/10hp chiller
Gush 17mm inflow and outflow lily pipe

Media and soil:
Mosura soil, 1 packet coarse and 1 packet fine.
Momotaro bacteria house
Mr aqua ceramic rings

Additives and enhancers:
Mosura old sea mud
Mosura bt9
Mosura rich water
Crs haven bacter max
Benabachi bee balls

Willow moss
Christmas moss
Spiky moss


Items removed:
Mineral rocks
Powerhouse soft type media
Mini pelia

Water parameters:
Start of week 3: ammonia 0. Nitrites 1.6mg/L, ph 5.95, kh 2, gh 3.

Golden and bds will be removed after cycling. What will be left in the tank will be kk, plus newly bought panda and bluebolts. Keeping my fingers crossed. No secret no tricks, just taking the patience and long path to successfully breeding/keeping.

Do visit my blog for more updates.

Sounds like a great tank! I would love to own any of the shrimp from the Caridina Genus, but they are just too expensive for me. Good luck with the tank. I don't think you will have much of a cycling period with the tank considering the live plants. You could also use some of the media from your 3 foot tank to speed the process.
