I've heard the same thing as well, but having never used salt in my fresh water tanks I can't comment for certain. Cory cats are reported to not handle salt well.

Well.. I have a reef tank so I've personally used around 200lbs of salt... but still.

Some plants I ordered arrived today, they're in a holding bowl until a different plant order arrives hopefully later this week.

Got some cholla wood and banana leaves for the shrimp so I'm soaking those.

Spent a lot of time staring at the 1.5g that will be moving to the spouse's office in the next week or two. Need to make final decisions about wood and plants.

Finally unpacked the new 1.5g yellow shrimp project tank.

And I ordered a rolling cart for all my fish supplies. I just got back into fish keeping a few months ago....no, this hobby isn't addictive

Don't get me started and salt water I don't allow my self to read the threads in the salt area or even look at the awesome pictures because it gives me bad ideas.

It really is!
I think keeping fish has really taught me patience, haha. Post pics when you're done 'scaping your nano!
That sounds really cool!
