Chikorita's 75g tank

Ok ... Here it is ...
I moved almost all of my crystal reds/blacks to 3 other smaller tanks temp. so I can rescape and move things around in this tank.

It is now has a few fire reds in there (those that I couldnt catch while I moved things around).
Substrate is fluval stratum and Up aqua soil
TDS around 200
GH around 3
Ph around 6.5
KH around 1-2

I used mostly tap water when doing water change ..
I fill in RO water in between water change .
I feed 2-3 times a week ... water change 2 times a week .. 10g or more at the time ...


When I first started the tank .. around less than 1 year ago
this is the tank ...





THEN I moved things around and redo some stuffs




THEN I did it again .....




THEN it get too busy bc I was too lazy to cut and sell the trimmings ...
so I DID IT AGAIN ...
and this is the tank .. 6-8 months later ...




THEN the shrimps ate the plants .. and it looked messy so I did it again ...
and here it is ... without the shrimps ... which I will move them back in later on
*phew*

Very nice. I love multiple rescaping too. My question is, how did you move your shrimps and catch them all in that heavy planted tank?

I feed them then catch them while they eat
but of course .. the little guys have to stay back since I couldnt catch the tiny guys ...
now that tank only have fire reds and 2-3 young adult crystals .. plus the tiny baby crystals ...
BUT I am moving back .. a lot of SS ONLY blacks/reds today ...
