Most of them lost their color so I think they weren't too happy back there. I move the tank to my office today from home. Seems like everyone survived the 30 minute car trip. At the same time I rescued the ones in the filter compartment moved back to the main tank

I think they climbed through the filter outlet... I had the tube disconnected for awhile to reduce the flow in the tank.

Thanks It's pretty much a no-maintenance tank for me, so I have been hesitant to introduce any extra work by planting it more heavily =)

>.> I think the opposite. i.e
more plants=no water changes (atleast for a few months XD )

Been stalking your tanks from the RAOK links you've come a loooong way for 6 months.

I've never graduated from the less than 2.5 gallon noob club :P In fact My own tanks have gotten progressively smaller...

Thanks, sorry I didn't reply sooner Yea, I meant more maintenance in the sense that I need to trim/cull/etc.

Looked in the tank today (had to be at work...) and counted THREE berried RCS females

Need to start reading about the hatchlings and what, if anything, I need to do to support them

Nah, enter! I'm sure you've at least entered and lost one before, right?

Came into work this morning and found some baby shrimps in the tank!

I only counted 2 or 3 of them, but they're pretty hard to locate.

I also saw some strange worm-like things crawling around on the glass... any ideas what they could be? My Nerites have been laying eggs all over - I wonder if they hatched? There aren't many insects up here on the 8th floor of my building, but maybe something got into the water?
