The tank is empty again right now. I rescaped my 10G and put all my Java Moss from both my 29G and my 10G inside the Fluval Spec. I moved the driftwood that was in here (and really, too big for this tank) over and migrated the bacopa colorata and anubias' as well.
I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I'll post some pictures up in a little bit.
So I haven't done anything with this tank in 7 days ever since momma ghost shrimp died... It was looking pretty ugly with some tufts of algae and dead plant matter that I'd just haphazardly tossed in there too (I took out the Java Moss and put it in my 10G)
I was about to do a 90% water change and clean the substrate up, etc in preparation for some new plants I received and eventually some RCS that HighDesert is going to send me, when I noticed there was something floating in the water column....
Check it out? I'm pretty sure that's a baby ghost shrimp, right? If so, it is a real bright light on an otherwise terrible day (my son is in the hospital... ended up not being too serious, thankfully). There are at least two, maybe three, of these in the tank that I spotted - they dart away if I move my tweezers near to them.
Is it possible the shrimp released some eggs that survived when she died?
Yeah man! Thats a baby ghost shrimp. I've raised a few to adult hood, and luckily you have nothing to eat it in the tank. They're difficult to raise though, and the adult versions don't mix well with RCS.
Nice! Even if it doesn't survive, I'm happy that a baby made it :P
No salt content other than what might get added by the random food I threw in there awhile ago. I won't mix them with the RCS, if it survives it'll go in my 1G bowl until it's a little larger and then eventually into the 29G or Betta tank where it'll have some friends
