I added them after 2 days, the plants are doing the cycling for me, the Shrimp produce so little waste that the plants can utilise the ammonia they produce, the ammonia that the substrate was leaching was also being utilised by the plants.

I'm also doing 50% daily water changes, it will remove a build up of alleochemicals from the rotting Crypts and prevents algae.

Well that does make sense but if your plants are using all the ammonia the filters not doing much. Are you going to use the walstad method with this tank (sort of)?

The filter is doing nothing bar circulating the water and acting as mechanical filtration. Similar to the Walstad method but this tank is high tech, I'm adding ferts and carbon whereas with the Walstad method you wouldn't.

In her method she did use CO2 but she said it killed all of her fish i think

The Walstad method doesn't use CO2 or any other additional nutrients, it relies on these excreted by the fish.

Can we keep this to Jacks shrimp tank please, its on the verge of ending up a debate about something he has already said he is not doing.


Tank looks great Jack looking forward to seeing it fill out and develope over the coming weeks.

What sort of carbon are you using co2 injection or liquid carbon?
