Water test results pending *please hold*

My family also has grown to hate the shrimp smell so I'm probably going to use my leftover ammonia from cycling my 75g for this tank since they can't stand the smell lol.

I can't believe you got such a smell. I did the 36 with one shrimp and had no smell.

Also felt the tank was too cluttered so I rescaped it. Still have like 10-12 pounds of rock in there.
