4 gal pico update

Rate this Entry
Quick update on the tank that's headed to my wife's office...

Tank is currently cycling... has some sort of insane ammonia count.. the API test kit's color comparison reads up to 8ppm, but the color the test kit indicates is significantly darker than that, it's something like a deep forest green/teal... cocktail shrimp + a couple of doses of brine shrimp started that process, still waiting for the nitrite spike though...

However i took this opportunity to make a hood, stand and a little 50/50 PC in there... pictures below!

Haven't decided on what to do with the return hole yet, and need to set up the ATO... We did, however, add some mineral mud to the "refugium/middle" area in the back.. Hopefully that will help keep the tank stable later on.. We'll see.. spending too much monies on aquarium stuffs leads to empty wine racks

One of these days I'll make a post of the 60g (24") cube we've got cycling in our living room....
