1 dollar seems pretty good for cherries. Someone here breeds of them locally which is nice but they're a dollar fifty each. I tried using some media from my turtle tank too, but idk if the temperature was too low at first or something, because it did not instant cycle at all. This tank has been surprisingly uncooperative.

Have you fed your turts shrimp before? Sedge has always been much better and more interested in catching shrimp then fish. I think part of it might be that he can get really close to them before they jump away.

Yup I've tried, and they did chase them at first but the shrimp would get away quickly and the turtles would lose them. I'm sure as my turtles get a little older, they'll start to hunt more, as they'll be able to catch the slower shrimp and fish. It was funny, just this morning I fed my fish and turtles. One of my turtles waited for a fish to get out of the way so he could snatch up some food. I thought for sure he was going to take a bit out of the fish.

Ok back to the correct thread :wink:

I have a lava rock in there now and I changed out the Biomax with new Biomax from the turtle filter a few days ago. So it finally seems like it's behaving like an actual cycled tank!

But now I dont know exactly what to do: I can get shrimp and leave the bag of Biomax in there for a few weeks? I don't know how well it will do once I take the bio max out if the Lava Rock and mini filter are enough.

The water lettuce is not doing well- it has been slowly disintegrating. But the other plants are still fine.
