Well got my last shipment of shrimp this morning. I wont be buying anymore for quite awhile unless i can get a good deal on some nice quality PRL's or something. Im really looking for that painted white look ^^
But new arrivals all made it ok save for 1 PFR that was an extra that came DOA. So no worries there. I'm officially up to 2x 1bar BKK, 1x 2bar bkk, 1x 1bar wine red, 1x 2bar wine red, and 1 red Panda, as well as 3(1 berried) Painted Fire Reds. Thinking this should round me out for a great gene pool between them and my other shrimp, both for the neo's and the caridina's.
I also removed the dividers on this tank as they were creating dead spots in each seperated area where things couldn't get filtered properly, even with a sunsun 302 on it. The shrimp seem much happier this way and I haven't had any problems with them since removing the dividers.. It just means my crs/cbs/tt's/taibee's can all mate. Not ideal to say the least, but i don't have room for seperate species tanks until after I move next april. So this will do. My goal until then is just keep everyone alive and breeding. I figure it won't be difficult to cull the one's that crossbreed assuming they do, and this will make it easier and more stable of a tank this way until i can get some other tanks setup to seperate everyone.
Pics when I get home!
