I just read you can plant sweet potato in your tank, maybe some of that?  :o

Quote from: TeX on January 25, 2019, 10:23:39 pmI am a big fan of this also but am concerned there may be import restrictions now, anyone know anything about that?

I love this stuff and so do my shrimp, looks like a moonscape and I like the yellowy tint it can give the water. I have been doing some searching online about import restrictions and cannot find anything definite on the subject but it would be a great pity if that were the case.

I grow a few plants but nothing like the sweet potato you mention and mine are generally purchased from other hobbyists and sometimes from stores. Care to include a pic of the sweet potato doing its thing, I for one would like to see that?

If your near the beach, a nice stroll might reward you with some nice driftwood, especially after a storm. You need to prepare it first though, usually by boiling it vigorously a number of times to remove any salt, get rid of any parasites etc. This is quite a common way of acquiring some and you have a nice healthy stroll as well.  ;D

Copy that, they have 300W on eBay for about $27 or a 500W model for something like $29, think I'll go with that so as well as watching the shrimp, I can watch my power meter spin fast.   :o

Standard 4ft is it? 7-10mm will be fine. If it's oversize or custom, 10-12mm.

Thanks for that, what about a heater, how big (watts) does that need to be?
