Love the tank Frrok. Those pygmys are pretty cute too.
Thanks dude... I really like it too. I just wish there wasn't so much algae. I kind of got sick of trying to battle it with H2O2. I raised the light about an inch but I think I got to go higher now. Then just ride it out clip off infested leaves and see what happens. I dialed back my co2 because I think it was stressing out my shrimps.
10/8 update. The stems are just about ready for another trim. This time I will try to define the shape of the bush a bit more. I'm dosing EI but some of my Ludwigia are show signs of deficiency. Or what I believe to be anyway. Not sure. I've also been trimming leaves from the crypts and sag that are algae infested. So as I result they are a lot thinner. Which should probably be done anyway. To promote new growth. All my pygmies were out and about during the water change yesterday They are awesome! and I lost two more shrimp! They still hide as well! . This morning with lights out I saw three. My numbers are steadily declining. I think my next purchase will be a 3 or 4 gallon cube and start a proper shrimp tank with new co2 and just moss. Ok here is a pic from last night. Notice anything different? Thx for looking.
lost a Pygmy Cory today. Due to idiotness on my part. I have steel mesh over my intake to prevent baby shrimp from getting sucked trough the filter. Well so far 2 shrimps and now a Pygmy Cory got stuck on the meah and died. It's because I kind of DIY'd it. I just took it off now since I haven't seem a berries shrimp in a long time. Looks like they are not breeding. But I'm pretty sad today. I really love these cories.
