Hello! A few of you may remember my old blog from years and years and years (actually, just 2012-2013) ago. Most of you won't know me so I'll start from the beginning. In 2010 I got a gift certificate. From who, I have no idea. It simply suddenly showed up on my Amazon account so I used it to buy a 3 Gallon Beverage Dispenser that I would turn into a Tank. I got a friend who owns a reef lighting company to custom make me a LED light and mounted it to the Dispenser's top. Next I got some organic soil and added some fertilizers to it then used pool sand as a top for it. I got a bunch of plants from people on here and another forum then started it up. It worked beautifully. It had Dwarf Baby Tears on a mesh wall, Sags, Cabomba and a few other plants I can't remember. Eventually the Sags overtook everything. The Yellow Shrimp loved it, though. I had around 60 in there along with a Tracked Nerite Snail. But then an unfortunate incident happened. I was out of town for two weeks and my roommates had turned off the light. Everything in it died. All the 60 Yellow Shrimp, the Nerite, every Sag, gone. I tossed everything out and started over again with fresh soil, fresh fertilizer, and Black Diamond Blasting Sand this time around. I'll make another post with more pictures and more details about what happened after this up until now.
