    Default Deb's 10g Endler and Shrimp Farm


    5 Not allowed!
    If you've read my other journal lately you would see that I've been having round after round of new fish fry from the Endlers. It's time for their own home.

    Details

    10g Aqueon tank from Petco $1 a gallon sale - got it last week.

    AC20 Filter $24.49 and Aqueon 50 Watt heater $23.98- coming from Amazon Prime delivery guaranteed tomorrow.

    20" All Glass Versa Top $9.99 and 17" Marineland hidden LED $39.99 - coming from Drs Foster and Smith on slow free shipping should be here the end of next week.

    Much of my selections came from suggestions from forum members and some of my own past experiences with products. I had a great suggestion on a heater but could not take the pink color on the top of it and bowed to buying something I already have and have used. A great forum member suggested a really nice filter and at the last moment I bowed to a known product that I am familiar with. Great suggestion on the cheapest all glass top anywhere, thank you. Again, the light came from a suggestion and it's funny but my current tank came with a hidden light and I don't like it at all. This one is actually longer than the one on my larger tank, allows for directional adjustment and is suitable for growing real plants, so I'm giving it a try. I almost went for a clip on LED on a suggestion until I looked at it and realized that it clipped onto the top of the tank. I had just assumed that it clipped onto the lip and was inside the tank, not outside, like the one I already had on my other tank. From a looks perspective and with a sleek all glass top I didn't want to detract with somehting sticking above the tank which is another reason for going with the AC20, it had a much lower profile. The filter I was looking at stuck up 4" above the tank top and that tipped the scale. I was really tempted to try the Finnex light that was recommended, pricing was nearly the same for the one I got but the fact that one sat inside the tank and the other above it, again tipped the scale.

    So those are the only known items yet with the exception that it will had endlers for stock along with dwarf shrimp and snails. I've tried snails in my other tank and could not keep them alive. Another poster here has had the same problem in one of her tanks, snails thrive in the other tanks and die in one in particular. New tank, new try with snails. I've been hankering for shrimp for a while now and decided to go for it.

    No decision yet on substrate, plant selection or other decor items like wood and rocks or a stand for the tank to sit on.

    I'm off and running with a whole new aquatic adventure. Should be fun!

    After your last experience getting something from the "north" country it may be a while before our temps warm up to think about shipping. When it's time - you'll be the first!

    I better be.

    When will it warm up there, maybe a duration of 2 weeks in July?
