u/Droidaphone · 10 pointsr/shrimptank

The two biggest challenges with all-in-one setups for shrimp is light (not enough) and waterflow (too much.) Shrimp really require live plants to thrive, and those plants need enough light to grow. It's hard to judge from pictures, but that tank's light seems like it MIGHT be adequate for low light plants. Shrimp also require very low waterflow. High waterflow will blow them around (they're tiny and light swimmers compared to fish) and they will easily get sucked onto the intakes of most filters. The tank you linked would need some modifications to be suitable for shrimp: at the very least it will need sponges or pantyhose covering the inlet and outlets, and the flow will need to be turned down to the lowest setting, probably.

So, it might work. But if you're interested in shrimp specifically, you might as well spend a small amount extra and build a custom setup that is tailored to them. You'd need:

  • a 10 gal tank (10 gal is cheaper to buy than 5, it's not any more work, and barely any more space.) Check thrift store for this if budget is a concern. You don't NEED a hood, unless you have kids or cats or something.

  • A sponge filter , aquarium tubing, and an air pump. This is the preferred filter type for shrimp. While we're discussing filters, make sure you understand the nitrogen cycle, and the basics of cycling a tank.

  • An aquarium heater and a thermometer. Don't stinge here. Maintaining a stable temperature is key.

  • A nice light. Doesn't have to pricey. A desk lamp and a daylight CFL bulb works great, but LEDs like thisare not much, either.

    I think all of that will run you roughly $75, give or take. Obviously, more expensive than the all-in-one, but it would result in a tank that would be easier for a beginner to succeed with.

    You'll also need to get some non-equipment essentials, like subtrate for planting in, a test-kit for monitoring your water, and obviously food, and a petri dish for feeding is highly recommended.

    Then you can get into plants and stuff. Whew! Sounds like a lot, I guess. It is, but it's worth it, and shrimp are definitely a good place to jump into aquariums.

Hemianthus callitrichoides

Is not hard to grow, doesn't need that much light. It does prefer soft water with slightly acidic PH. I've found it grows quite easily with Fluval Shirmp Substrate which tends to lower PH.

I'm not using CO2 in any of my tanks

u/RLelling · 8 pointsr/rupaulsdragrace

Pretty much half of the foods you see in commercials / photos isn't what it actually is. I'm always shocked, it's always something random like "you thought this was coffee? Actually, coffee looks really shit on camera so they used nitroglycerine spiked with cyanide which gives it that extra coffee-like glow. The actress that played in the commercial is dead now. They actually used a different actress for each shot."

In a photoshoot ice would probably melt too quickly. They're most likely acrylic. (If you're not staging your shot with fake ice cubes you're not doing photography.)

I bought two bags to go across a king sized bed! I cut them to different lengths and pinned them to the top of the ceiling and then laid the lights over top

Operation Lemon-Aid to help #SaveLodge49 has begun.
Recently I posted an article on how fans saved
@ExpanseOnPrime. @AbduliaBardwell tweeted "What we don’t have in numbers (yet), we can make up for in creativity" Thinking about past campaigns to save shows told me that we needed to come together and show our creativity and force. One of my favorite scenes this season was the lemon season - where dud trades lemons for drinks. Perhaps, I thought - we could trade lemons for saving the show.

Here is the plan. If you can, we need you to send a care package to as many of the execs as you can. They will include a fake lemon(s), some Lodge stuff and however you want to personalize it.

Next, write #SaveLodge49 or any pertinent Lodge49 related creativity on them. I used a sharpie - not the best handwriting - but you get the drift.

Maybe put one of these dope prints or something of your own into a box with the lemons. A heartfelt letter. Some fan art. ANYTHING!!!

u/akubar · 5 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

It's this


not really that happy with it tbh for what I paid - i can't get really get it to spread out and look natural, but its better than seeing a bunch of modems and wires I suppose

u/Tury345 · 4 pointsr/ConspiracyII

> Take the soul away and you have substance that has vitamins and minerals being called meat but you body doesn't know what to do with it.

I believe you're thinking of those weird fake fruit decorations, common mistake really.

u/Esperath · 4 pointsr/PlantedTank

If you're still having trouble getting ahold of Aquasoil, Fluval Plant and Shrimp Stratum has some similarities to Aquasoil Amazonia (mineral-rich baked earth pellets that buffer at a slightly acidic pH).

u/Landxr33 · 3 pointsr/Vermiculture

Sure is!

I rescued him and he’s now back with his comrades

u/emmie8 · 3 pointsr/Weddingsunder10k

Congrats! My brother and sister-in-law did a surprise lunch wedding similar to your idea, and it turned out great! They ended up ordering fabric and fake hanging vines from Amazon and it turned out really pretty. I believe they may have been similar to the ones below, but not sure of the exact item:

I’m a girl on a budget too, and just ordered my wedding dress from BHLDN for around $225. ☺️ You might also check out ASOS or Lulu’s for affordable dresses, or look at ivory/white dresses labeled for bridesmaids. For rings, Etsy has a ton of really pretty and affordable options. I’m a fan of the rings in the store below!

> u/AlphaFemaleNerd: Good headphones.

1000000x yes. And not a gaming headset. Proper audiophile headphones like the DT 990 Pros, Sennheiser 598s, or the less-expensive 558s. Pair those with a modmic and you're good to go.


HWMonitor/CPU-Z: HWMonitor for quick access to temperatures (usually over/under by a couple degrees), and CPU-Z for frequencies and such.

Surge protector: Useful when you need it, ease of mind when you don't. Covers $300k worth of equipment in case anything is damaged, as well. Gotta love Belkin.

Mechanical keyboard: Much longer lifespan than some typical office keyboard, pretty lights, clickity-clacks, etc.

Good mouse: Same case as the keyboard: Much better than an office mouse, better tracking, button customization, etc.

Your hardware's respective software: Whether it's Ryzen Master, your SSD's storage manager, blah blah blah, it's useful.

UserBenchmark: See how your build stacks up to others, and/or if it's performing as it should be. Fun little thing.

Some greenery: Adds color to your battlestation. Nice little accent piece. Not necessary, but I like it.

u/PeachesNSteam · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

I used these roses in ivory for my bouquets and they are seriously gorgeous in person. So happy I ran across them (from someone on this subreddit!)

u/AceKijani · 2 pointsr/shrimptank

Fluval Plant and Shrimp Stratum... here is an amazon link if you want it :)

u/buildingbridges · 2 pointsr/Goldfish

Amazon, I found these and used plant weights and black thermoplastic I already had to make a base so they’d sink. I used half of one of the plants for each side of my aquarium. They came with the stems attached to a plastic coated wire so I just popped them off and pieced them out.

u/erinarian · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Ok, here's a tutorial of sorts. These were super easy to make, and I am not very crafty.


7" vases - Dollar Tree

9" vases - Dollar Tree

10.5" vases - Amazon

Glass stones - Amazon

Submersible LED lights - Amazon

Calla lilies - Amazon
I ordered orange and navy. My wedding color blue is royal blue, not navy, but as you can see in the photos they are pretty light for navy, and are passable for royal blue.

The flowers come in a variety of colors, so if you're into calla lilies you can make these work. They have wires in the stems, so I just bent the stems up and played around with height and color combos until I had a set up I liked. Then I used those flowers as a template to cut the other flower stems to length with wire cutters.

The calla lilies float if they are not weighed down, so I hot glued the end of each stem to one of the glass stones and buried it under the rest of the stones. Worked perfectly, and you can't see it in the final set up.

The Dollar Tree vases are FANTASTIC, and I suggest looking there first no matter what type of vase you're looking for since they have a variety. They didn't have the taller vases I needed so I had to spend a bit more to get them from Amazon, but kept total costs to about $250 for 10-12 centerpieces. I don't think there's an appreciable difference between the Amazon vases and Dollar Tree vases, they go very well together.

My original plan was to use floating candles instead of LED lights, but I really liked how the shadows are cast with the uplighting from the submerged LEDs. It also makes a little bit of a blue glow through the stones. I am making another one-vase decoration (same thing, just the medium-sized vase instead of 3) with a floating candle next to a written memorial for my dad and my fiancé's and my grandparents who have passed. The point is floating candles definitely work for these if that's your thing.

Anyway, I'm happy to provide more info by request, though I think this pretty much covers it!

u/mechanux · 2 pointsr/battlestations

It's artificial, which is good, because otherwise it would die in a matter of days knowing me.

u/MissBananaBeak · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/kehillah · 2 pointsr/Aquariums

something like this

u/unwantedcritic · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/ColdDonut · 2 pointsr/bettafish
u/gypsywhisperer · 2 pointsr/Weddingsunder10k

Definitely look into floor-length tablecloths, and tall centerpieces.

She used 100 of these roses for them, and only half to a third really need that tall one.

You can also hang paper lanterns from the ceiling and again, lighting makes a difference.

u/Niwrad0 · 2 pointsr/shrimptank

The Tank

For the gravel I het a $5 discount card since I bought some cat toys, so I got that for $7 from Petco. I would recommend the fluval shrimp stratum though

Then I got this set of marimo balls

Got some pre-filter inlet covers

API Freshwater test kit for $20 from amazon

API GH KH test kit for $8 from amazon

a basic TDS electric meter for $10 from ebay

I got salty shrimp 100 grams for about $20 off ebay

Then I bought a piece of driftwood from the Pet store for $10

I got three java moss balls from the pet store for $6 each

Bought an Anubias plant from the pet store for I believe it was $12

I got 3 amano shrimp and 5 CRS from the pet store, prices vary so check your own pet store.

u/zgnichols · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

Fluvial stratum for the substrate and black diamond blasting sand for the middle. Can’t say much about my substrate yet, but it hasn’t made the water murky or tannic.

The glass pipes are called Lilly pipes and they’re really snazzy. I’m happy with the purchase

u/alasqalul · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

This is the kit that I bought.

I know about the different times for different reasons but I did not know about adding more hops for more bitterness. That's good to know as I want this to be a high IBU beer. The kit says 43 IBU's which is much too low but was the highest I could find in Europe.

u/STR0NKboi · 1 pointr/battlestations

Here are some tips that might help.

  1. Get some new desks, I own this one cause it's cheap in my area: Cool Ikea Desk
  2. Have better cable management. Not only does it make it look nicer, but it also makes it easier to know where each cable is connected... Amazon Zip ties
  3. Wall mount the Monitors, or desk mount. Cheap Amazon Desk mount
  4. Add some plants, pictures, and stuff to spice up the room. It looks very bland right now, so add a bit of colour. Some cheap Amazon plants
u/pleimi · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

The first layer is API Laterite and the top layer is Fluval Stratum

Picked up the driftwood + rocks at my local fish store!

u/Carnby · 1 pointr/shrimptank

You could try some crystal red shrimp. Since your tap water is soft, you might be able to use some shrimp stratum that will help lower your pH to a more comfortable level for them. Bees also like cooler water, try to keep it around 70-73F for best results. Personally, I use [salty shrimp bee mineral] ( to remineralize the RO water my LFS sells.

u/Ask461 · 1 pointr/bettafish

My amazon sword and anacharis loves it! Even my anubias attaches itself to the substrate even though it has a decor for itself. There's other substrate that has fertilizer for the plants but that's only an online purchase from Amazon.

I feel like it will help with keeping the tank healthy. When I changed out the substrate for another color I crashed my cycle. I asked Reddit and researched and finds out I killed a lot of good bacteria :/ But remember to get a siphon to clean it every week. I do about a 25% water change when I clean the substrate. For the plants, since I just have this substrate from petco, I add weekly or bi weekly leaf zone, also found at petco. It does what the fertilizer substrate would do.

This is the fertilizer substrate from Amazon:

u/endromeda · 1 pointr/FulfillmentByAmazon

What are the legal implications of selling a name brand product under your own label? For example, this seller (like this one) is selling IKEA curtain brackets for a markup. This seller is actually called "by IKEA" but is "Sold by Fit Your Style Online and Fulfilled by Amazon." Is this legitimate? Can they get shut down or sued? Just curious how it works. Thanks!

u/Elhazar · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

Well, it does is a hard challenge for a beginner, but doing a properly carpeted nano-Aquascape (~20l <=> ~5g <=> ~2.0 × 10^-2 m^3) with DIY CO2 and a small sponge filter is doable in <150$

A quick, small suggestion:

Tank, ~13l <=> 3.4g, 40$

Soil, 20$

Light, 40$

stones, 25$

Filter, 10$,

1 pot Monte carlo or some other easy carpet plant at your lfs: 8€

We‘re left with 7$ for ~4 RCS, I guess.

I assumed you construct you DIY CO2 from an old bottle with sugar and yeast, so 0$ effetivly.

For cycling and food some free samples of fish food does the job. When food rots it emits ammonia, that could be used for cycling.

So here we go, every thing ready for a nice iwagumi-aquascape. If you do well, it might looks like this (That Tank has HC as carpet, but Monte carlo looks similar)!

Well, if you‘re willing to put up a dozens of hours on studying to to properly keep a planted tank.

edit: Wrong link for tank, this was the one I mistakenly linked to. Still a nice, small tank, tho. Also some additions for clearance.

u/TheLiqourCaptain · 1 pointr/Aquariums

I'm starting a new shrimp tank and want it to be well planted. What suggestions to you have? I think I'll get a glass square cut and 3D print mounts and maybe buy a larger light. Any suggestions on plants? I don't want to pump in CO2.

u/ZZZ_123 · 1 pointr/Goldfish

It's been awhile, but I'm planning on ordering these plastic plants and curious how they are holding up? Is it easy to keep them clean?

u/MCubb · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

You mean this stuff, right?:

I was looking at that, but ultimately, potting soil has more nutrients in it (and it's what I'm used to using in all other aspects of my life), and I just prefer the idea of roots going into real soil.

So with that in mind, would you suggest the stratum as a cap? Or is that too light for a cap?

u/Nezsa · 1 pointr/Aquariums

Hmm, I don't think I've ever encountered a substrate guide like that, but based on the plants and fish you want to stock, you'll have success with either aquasoil, or sand+RootTabs.

If you weren't looking for a dark sand I would suggest going to your local hardware store and picking up Pool filter sand, but unfortunately it's usually white.

I've heard great things from Black Diamond blasting sand, but I'm not sure if it's available in Canada.

If you go to any of the pet stores near you, you'll probably be able to find "CaribSea Super Naturals" sand, which works well and it pretty commonly available.

For soil, I used Fluval Aquasoil for my first heavily planted tank, and it worked well. It's a bit expensive, but since you're setting up such a small tank I don't think it'll be too bad. I'm guessing a 4.4lb bag will be enough, but please double check!

u/Ron_Fuckin_Swanson · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

Not necessarily...It really depends on the space and how you use the lights.

But at least hang them properly if you do it.

Don't just throw some string lights up like a drunk guy decorating for christmas.

Take some time.

Get a short string (50-100) lights.

Run an extension power cord up the window frame so that you don't have lights running up the wall.

It would really help if you showed us the window in question so we can tell you if you can tastefully put up lights or not.

If not, consider getting a ficus tree and putting a string of 50 lights in the tree. Doing this not only gives you fake greenery, it gives you a tasteful way to have string lights in your room without it looking tacky or feminine. Its indoor landscape lighting

u/queenmelisandre · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

Do you need like a giant bag or something? Not sure how big your tank is. But this here is only 27 pounds

Theres also Fluval stratum that's said to be good too

u/ernieball · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

You don't need a lot of Disney decor to make it Disney themed - just a piece here and there.

For your center piece use a giant pumpkin, carve out Mickey's face, and use two small pumpkins to make ears

Use small pumpkins and orange construction paper or that foamy paper stuff to make ears for small mickeys and set a few on the table and around the house. Pair them with fall leaves and regular fall decor.

Use regular cocktail napkins in black and white stripes. Pair with black or orange plates/cutlery.

Embellish with [festively painted pumpkins](

Etc. This with Disney treats will get your point across tastefully.

u/Jo0ples · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

Thank you so much this has been a great help!

I have one lonely shrimp in my betta tank because for some reason he kills everything else apart from her and I can vouch for the poop on light sand, haha!

Edit: is the this the sort of stuff I'd be looking at for substrate?
