Would love to get more on the go though, but i agree with Tom Barr that it's either all through the house as artistic focal points or not at all. Still, if i was a hardcore ADA junkie i'd suck it up and do what you have done .

I love your scapes - i'm a big fan of dramatic branchwood design, and the 4ft and 30C are going to be stunning when they grow in. The iwagumi is a great design too, lovely hardscape start and i'm sure it will settle down soon.

Can you point me to more info on your variety of shrimp? The blue/red one and white one with the red saddle area in your sig pic are new to me, and i'd love to keep more variety of shrimp. Even RCS can be hard to find in LFS's in Australia. I currently have the ol' RCS and some native Darwin red-nose shrimp (import them if you can, same size as RCS but very long red proboscis and clear with white speckles), and soon some CRS, but if i can source new types i'd be very grateful.

Looking forward to following this thread . Cheers, lea.
The red/blue one is an orange eye blue tiger. They get a red tint to them sometimes that comes and goes. The white one with the red patch is a high grade cryatal red shrimp.

Thanks for your comments too.

90P Update



The day after I took this picture I scraped all of the algae off of the glass, sucked out what I scraped off, and spot treated the hair algae with H2O2. I let the H2O2 do its thing for a while with the filter off and let everything bubble away. After 30 minutes I turned the filter back on, added a circulation pump to the opposite side of the tank, and moved the CO2 diffuser under the circulation pump's intake. I now have tiny bubbles swirling around the entire tank and the drop checker is staying a pretty green. By the next day all of the string algae changed to a different green color and has been slowly disappearing ever since. Everything in the tank looks 100% better. I will post an updated picture of it soon.

Add lots of shrimp and they will beat it back and finish it off.


Yes, the swamp is in FL, Gainesville to be exact.......but I live near the Delta of the Sac River and work out there also.

Jon, when you come to collect some wood, you will see a lot of the burl frags........and the rock will just look the same........

Regards,

Here are some pictures of my berried KK. She has been berried for about 3 weeks now. She is housed with one other male KK and a bunch of adult CRS, CBS, and juvi wine reds. This means that the daddy is probably a CRS or CBS. The CRS and CBS will eventually get moved out of the tank and into their own tank so that I can get the KK's to breed with each other.




MMMMMMMMM....poooo

Nice looking King Kong! Kinda hoping the dad's a CRS/CBS to see what the offspring turn out as

The odds are very good that the dad is a CRS/CBS.

It will give a 100% F1 TB x C[R/B]S ratio. None will be BKK, but they will all carry the recessive gene and if you breed those F1 hybrids, they give a 25% BKK, 50% F2 hybrids, and 25% regular C[R/B]S. From my understanding at least!

Thanks for the breakdown. I have not found any baby KK's in the tank and I have been looking for a while each day.

I bought 2 of the Marina breeder boxes and set them up. In one of the boxes I placed a KK male, KK female, a golden bee, and a SSS+ CRS. I hope that the KK male like the females that are in there with him and they all become berried soon. I will put them back in their tanks after they are berried. TB CRS/CBS are cool and all but I want some baby KK's.

I do have 2 juvi WR's but I don't know their gender yet. I will probably do the same thing with them when they get older.

Looks great. Has the shrimp rack made much progress? Enough for some sneak peaks?

Waiting on my tax refund. I haven't pulled the trigger on any hardware yet. I am picking up some tangerine tigers at the SCAPE meeting at the end of the month.
