I see. Absolutely can't wait to see pics! I love seeing shrimp I raised in others' tanks!

Nice! They grow up so fast! *sniffles*

It seems to me like Mini Rose Moss? Not sure though.

No, in fact I haven't been able to find any CRS for a week or so. Never found any outside the tank. Haven't seen any bodies just molts. Not sure where they went.

I did a count of the shrimplets. Just counted 23 that I could see at one time. Theres gotta be a few hiding as well.

I'm planning a rescape on the tank. I'm going to pull the floating wood and throw some bigger rocks in. I want to try to carpet the tank with moss and get some on the rocks as well. I have some weeping moss and moss tiles or order right now.

Man, that's too bad. Funny though, my CRS breed faster than my neos. Congrats on the baby shrimplets nevertheless!

PS -- I usually add 2/5 of the number of babies I count to how many I see. I think it's usually closer

Considered using cholla wood or something for the shrimp? To give the tank a vertical element?

ya I have. I have a hard time paying for that stuff when Ive lived my whole life with the stuff everywhere around me, being from Arizona.

I was going to do a Iwagumi style with moss carpet but decided to not put the rock in. Its tough to trim around a large rock in this small tank. Gunna try to carpet this baby. It should look awesome with weeping moss.

Are you sure that's Mini Rose Moss? It looks like flame moss, unless Mini Rose grows vertical like that? But it that is indeed 100% Mini Rose Moss, that's pretty cool!
