Ya I saw his thread, good job getting him into it! I look back at pics from just a few months ago, and I can't believe how awful my rock work was.. Lol.. Btw, the new rock you got looks good, it's what about 90% of my tank is made up of, and I love it.

Thanks. I was shocked. Lol. He picked an aquarium as his birthday present. I was so proud! Lol. Glad to hear that about the rock. I like it so far. Did yours color up or did it stay white? I was so glad to get that ugly yellow rock out! Lol.

It will color up. My tank wasn't to pretty for the first month or so after I added it.. Just straight white rock.. But now it looks good.. I love the porous look of it

If everything goes as planned I may get to start cycling this tank earlier. Maybe August or so.

Anyone have an opinion on the shrimp method vs pure ammonia?

Cool. Thanks guys. I was waiting until December because I thought there was a chance of me moving, but I don't think it's going to happen. So, I figured while its sitting there it may as well go through a long thorough cycle.

My financial situation has changed a little bit. As a result, my aquarium plans are going to have to change a little. I'll post a build plan when I have one figured out.

Btw, tank isn't going anywhere. The direction I'm going with it is just changing.
