50/50+ w/o oyster shells???
    #986812 - 10/23/02 04:19 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

ok, here's the deal. i want to case shortly. i planned on using the 50/50+ method, but i cant find any oyster shells for the life of me. i check pet store after pet store. no luck. there's one that has 'em back home where i used to live, but i wont be visiting there for another couple of weeks. but i did manage to find some lime. now, the question is should i use it w/o the oyster shells or just plain ol' 50/50. if i do use the lime, how would that change the proportions? thanks for any help.

Yeah go for it. The plain 50/50 Tek doesn't call for them.

i dont think you quite understood what i was asking or i didnt word it properly. i was wondering if i should use 50/50+ w/o oyster shells (verm., peat moss, lime) or should i just stick w/ the plain ol' 50/50 (verm., peat moss)? thanks again,

Oh my bad. Don't use the lime. This is just what I would do, however, because I am not completely sure about lime. I've heard both sides and just wouldn't risk it.

Can you at least not find oyster shell flakes? They are very common in pet stores because they are fed to birds to help with their digestive system. It's called bird grit, or bird gravel I believe. If it comes down to it I have cased before and forgot to put in the oyster shell and had success. Good luck!

If using lime then oystershell wouldn't be necessary (they're both buffers). Remember we're not talking hydrated lime BTW, either way with or without buffers the only thing that will really be affected are the number of flushes you'll have before trich raises it's ugly head. GL guys
