I'm just posting this so there will be less accidents.
I see a lot of your lovely new NPT tanks out there, with one common issue.
it is not well planted enough.
I highly recommend you all read OFL's sticky on NPTs... very thoroughly.
In reality you need 70% plant cover....enough fast growing stem plants to keep the nitrates down and floaters to pull nutrients from the water column.
keep this in mind, as a NPT that is improperly stocked at first will bring about a lot of problems. you will defintely get dead shrimps and maybe even dead fish. or the water may stink up with fungi and bacterial blooms etcetc.
so read the NPT sticky properly before starting one!
