FTS of the rebirth of the 3gal pico
Posted January 31, 2007
how do you like the Picotope so far?
i love it! i wish my roommate didnt get rid of my first batch of LR...but i cant wait to get a clean up crew and some corals. Its a bit of a challange b/c the size makes it harder to keep the water perfect..but i love it, its a nice size for my college dorm room
Have you had issues w/ your params yet? Guess w/ that system you need extremely frequent water changes. I really like it, especially for the price of the whole system. Any temp issues or anything?
only got temp issues right now b/c my heater isnt strong enough to keep up w/ the room temp if the window is open (at least in my current dorm). It can go between 80-76. In the room ill be moving to soon though they dont really keep the window open so Ill have to get back to you. My params are alright, at least the ones I've checked (student so im slowly getting new tests here and there).
My pH was 8.0 so i need a buffer. My Nitrites were 1 b/c i feed my shrimp like a pig, and my ammonia was .05
so once i get some more distilled water im gonna do a 1g WC b/c I havn't dont one in a while and it could use it.
Id def suggest it to you, its a nice little tank. Ill be upgrading the lighting to a 27w 6500k desk lamp by hampton bay...its around $20
