I recently set up my tank and have added approx 45 lbs of LR
. There is also 60 lbs of LS
in there and 50lbs of base rock. The equipment has been running for a few days now (the skimmer is just hitting its stride).
What do you think of the LR
? Most of it is from my LFS
's display tanks and as such its fully cured. The other stuff is from their premium LR
tank and is in pretty darn good condition as well.
The Ammonia has already spiked, I will test the nitrite tomorrow and am hoping to have a clean up crew going soon. How many snails and hermits should I put in there or should I avoid hermits because they might pick on my snails. What type of snails are good to put in there?
When I put the snails in can I put a shrimp in as well?
Sorry for the pic quality, my GFs camera isn't quite as nice as mine so the pics have a yellowish hue, I'll take some with mine once I get it back from my mother.
One last note, the camera wouldn't take the pictures well so the pieces pictured are not the best pieces, these are the ones out of the LR
tank, not the ones in the display tank. The display ones are covered in coraline algae much like the piece of LR
that is closest to the camera in the first pic.
