Bunnywinkles Posted September 17, 2021 Share Posted September 17, 2021 Hi all! I have not had an aquarium in YEARS, probably close to 15 now. Back then I was Young and dumb, and didn't really understand things like water parameters, etc. I just knew what the pet store sign said. I'm sorry fish 😞 Now I am much more educated. I am looking to get back into the hobby with some Cherry Shrimp. My plan is as follows. The Tank: 10 Gallon tank divided to two ~5 Gallons with a foam divider Nano Sponge filter in each USB Air Pump for each Pool filter sand substrate (Up in the air) Live plants, Java Fern/Moss Small driftwood The Execution: Get the tank, plants, substrate, Divider, pumps, filters Use Fritz water conditioner Fill and begin cycling process, figure out my aqua scape Once cycled, order the shrimp (10 or so) and a Mystery Snail for each side Intention of two sides is for one to be a fry side and one to be a big boy side. Figured 1 10g will be better than 2 5g. Cheaper tanks and more water in one tank. I will drip acclimate using a specimen container Any holes in my plan? Gotchyas I need to look for? I am going to mostly go with Aquarium Co-op items where available (Filters, pumps, net, specimen container, test kits, plants, etc). Will two pumps be too much for a 10g? I was going to get valves to lower the pressure if needed, as well as some never clog stones. Also, Corey, your podcasts are awesome! Thanks for all the work you do.
