I need to decide what my next upgrade (Christmas present to myself :p) will be:

Fluval 406 - would this allow me to stock a few more fish? Also if I don’t sell the 306, would running both be overkill? 

OR

Fluval plant 3.0 light to replace the standard white LED.

Ask @"wingnut55" about overkill with filtration......  ;)    :angel:

Seriously though, running both sounds like a good idea to me. No idea about how it would affect stocking though!

55 litre Shrimp tank is planted up ...... just letting it grow and mature for now!  :)  xx

I’ve been playing around with aqadvisor calculator. If I did increase filtration I could get some more fish.

But I think I want to sort the lighting first. Poor Bolivian Rams looking bleached under the white LEDs.

Been trying to count my pandas over the last few days - pretty sure I’m now down to 8.

Water parameters are fine and stable - wondering if my tank just isn’t mature enough for them.

What are you feeding?
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! :D

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Mobiles are way too complicated for me, although I do have one now. ;)

I think it's just a Panda Thing, Netsu - mine haven't been the most robust Corys.

I'd go for the light. The extra tangible benefit of the upgraded filter (a few more fish) would - for me - be outweighed by the better light spectrum and flexibility of the Bluetooth control.

The tank gets a variety of foods including frozen bloodworm, daphnia and cyclops. The cories have hikari sinking wagers designed for catfish but I’ve seen them munching on the sinking cichlid pellets too. I think you recommended the higher protein pellets last time but I thought I’d wait until these wafers were finished.

Thank you. I had read that they were good beginner cories but then one reads a lot of different things on the internet!

I will be getting the light soon hopefully (and the filter some time next year!)
