Re: Jake's New 18"/3gal Nano Shrimp Tank

Lol! Looks a lot like my Ebi and crystal bookshelf until I went crazy with them last week.

After the trim (and a massive thinning of floaters) I found about a million tiger and cherry shrimplets I wasn't aware of!

(Still gobs of crystal shrimplets, they tend to hang closer to the bottom of the tank, though.)

Couesfanatic: Thanks. It looks way better when trimmed. Hopefully I'll trim it some day. Every time I decide I've got 15-20 minutes to devote to trimming, I decide I don't want to mess with removing lighting and digging around in their with a scissor.

LyzzaRyzz: Use it in some of my other tanks.

Rob: Yep, moss/plant trims are usually when I try to get a handle on babies, as well. Looking forward to that part.

Finally did a moss trim!

Some rough cell phone shots:




Still need to do touch-ups and remove errant pieces of moss. Also gotta get in there to trim the Fissidens soon.

Removed a bit of Christmas Moss from the other 3gal but didn't tae a photo, as it doesn't look much different.

You ever going to cull these eventually? Looks like you have enough to pick out 10 premium goldens to start a new tank to work towards perfect snow whites.

I remove less desirable shrimp and sell them on a regular basis.

Have been selectively breeding every once in a while with a breeder box. Probably should work on it a bit more.
