7th day of cycle

It has been a long week.. Tied up with work.. Didn't have much time to start adding 'stuffs' to my tanks till tonight.. I won't be testing any of the parameters at the moment.. Just leave the tanks to cycle, whether its already fully cycled or not.. Just be patience for me..

First to add to the tank is my K1 media.. I noticed there is an area which I consider a 'dead spot' under the rainbar.. So there it goes..



Next to be fitted will be air sponge filters.. 2 sets per tank/partition.. (Water is a little cloudy because I added more Mosura BT9)



Right now, there are 'growth' on the substrate which I like.. Meaning bacteria or diatoms are starting to grow... Tank is progressing well... White specks should be those powder flakes which are actually breaking down.. So leave it, might turns out to be shrimps 'food' for a some time.. Hahaha...



And here is a full tank shot.. (Cloudy water due to Mosura BT9) Still not going to do any water changes or add my plants yet... Plants maybe tomorrow or next week if time permits...

moving bed filter

Hi Alvin, how did you fix the moving bed filter bottle, and do you use an air stone inside? I have tried similar, but added carbon instead of K1 media: works not satisfying yet, as the coal is too light and not all of it moves. Anybody knows how to make a DIY foot for the bottle filter? Keep on posting about your tank rack, it is really an enrichment and good information for us shrimp keepers!

Re: moving bed filter

Hi shrimpsider, I will try to give a detail breakdown on how to do the DIY moving bed filter bottle in another category under filtration later in the day. Hope this helps all fellow shrimp hobbyist.
Locally in Singapore, we can actually purchase this from LFS as there is someone (who is actually the person who created this bottle and I should credit this to him, Jojoe)..
