Very cool stuff. Some of the best photography that I've seen on here in quite a while.
Bravo
Any chance that you have a higher res copy of this shot?

very nice tank! Where did you get your rcs from? Those females are completely solid red! You gotta let me know when you get a nice colony going because I would love to get some of your shrimp!

Zeldar,

Thanks for the note. I actually bought them on eBay believe it or not. I think she was a private aquarium owner that had too many. They ended up being about $1 each which is pretty dang good considering cheapest I saw them locally was @ 3 for $14.95 at A world of fish. Blew my mind. But very happy with the purchase.

Thanks very much about the photo I am going to try and keep my algae going for a while to see if it will completely black out the sides and back of my tank for me . Not sure if that is the best idea but we will cross that bridge when it comes..

New updates :d

I just got back from a short vacation but brought home some exciting surprises for my aquarium . Got some new inverts from a really small single owner fish store downtown. He said he had never seen anything like them before and neither had I. Pretty cool anyway. I also got the new mikroPump Waterfall from Zeus Industries in Chicago. It uses micro bubbles and surface tension to make simulated waterfalls in your aquarium. I cant explain it but somehow lasers are involved.. Like that cheesy airbubble one I had only way cooler.. They said it was based on research from new york and mentioned this fountain.

Anyway.. I am going to take some more pictures More soon!

What light fixture do you have there????

Making your tank "maintenance-free" requires constant maintenance.

My 70 gallon 2 tank system with a "fish bridge"

Its a no name unit closeout from ebay.

It runs 4x 24 watt T5 bulbs and I have 2 6500k and two Geissman bulbs one cooler and one warmer. You can program two banks ( 2 bulbs each ) to come on or off at different times with the timer and I always use the built in moonlight led's at night. It is pretty cheaply built but has worked very well. If you search around on ebay you will find something similar that suits your tank. Shop safe though
