Oyster Shells stink
    #583872 - 03/20/02 03:16 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I moved up from the 50/50 tek, to the 50/50+.

I was suprised to find that after the mixture was steralized in the PC, it stunk. It didn't smell bad too before I put it in there. I am attributing this to the oyster shells. It smelled like dead shrimp left out in the sun.

Since my cases are in my bedroom, this is an extra problem.

I bought a 50lb bag at the local feed store for around $6. If I buy the more expensive stuff from mycosupply or anything, will it reduce the odor. Is there anything I can do? The odor really isn't _that_ bad, but I would like it to go away.

I had almost forgot about that. I brought some shells home from the beach when I was a kid and a week later they would about make you puke to smell em. Real fun to trick someone else into smelling em though.
They used to put lime on dead soldiers to keep em from stinking so bad. Some crushed limestone might help. Or maybe get a couple of hermit crabs to blame the smell on. Just a thought.:peace:
