Now I'm back to contemplating shrimp. Thinking about removing all or most of the PRLs from the tank and introducing about a dozen CBS from my 12gal, which has for some reason seen a lack of Crystal breeding the past year.
While I don't believe my tanks are the most attractive on this forum in any stretch of the imagination, I do believe they're proof that one can make a tank look pretty good while keeping it manageable, lush and livestock-friendly.
It's tough to see in the images, as the pre-filter sponge is in the way, but there are some Crypts filling in that spot that are getting quite thick.
My general idea/plan was to position Crypts in such a way that I'd get the best viewing angles from a chair positioned near the tank. As the various groupings of Crypts grow, they're making the sponge less noticeable.
Counted my spare C. parva plantlets and have a few dozen, so I think I'll try to add some to the tank this weekend.
