    shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried.

    The best product to use in a cycling tank is patience. It will come clear as the sticky microbes in filter out compete the floaty water column microbes for nutrients.
    If thats not an option, a flocculant like accuclear or easylife will get the job done. I dont usually reccomend using chemical filtration during a cycle.... but a bag of chemipure would give you crystal water even with the initial tannin leech from bonsai. Anubias needs high humidity, it hates air con. You would likely need to accimatize it slowly with lots of misting.

    thanks for the info i will wait for another week and see what happen with the tank.

    how would you recommend me to keep my Anubais? can i just put it in a tub and mist it afew time a day? ... im in search of another nano fish tank like the one i have above just for it ... but its hard to find one thats 2nd hand, so it might take awhile.

    If you're in Sydney, something will come up second hand pretty soon.

    For how long? For a few weeks, you can keep it in a container (some light preferred) where you change water daily. No ferts needed.

    For future reference, google 'emersed setups' to keep plants alive out of the tank.
