Thanks! I really like it too. Thanks again for the awesome shrimp food! I've really been thinking about just doing nano cats or Otto and shrimp in here now. They're so active! Just need to figure out a good way to cover it with meowschwitz's experience with the shrimp paratroopers
You'll have no problem keeping shrimp in the tank as long as the parameters remain stable and comfortable for the shrimp you decide upon.
I've only lost one shrimp the past few years due to a climber and that was an Amano that was near the end of its days.
My shrimp, I suspect, jump because of where the tank is located. It's right next to my computer, so I constantly get up and walk about in front of it. I'm also on the second floor, so the ground shakes more when someone walks. Plus, I'm near a bus stop, so every once in a while, a bus comes in like an earthquake, and that probably startles the shrimp a bit.
well, it's in my cubicle at work, so there's definitely a lot of people coming through, tons of people who don't know (or forget) that I have a tank and like to bang on our walls, so i'd rather keep the shrimp in my newly scaped and glass top secured 10 gallon
Anyways, again I digress. Shot some less-terrible photos at work today of its current state. I don't think the staurogyne repens up top will be working out too well, so I might just foster that in my 10 gallon tank till the main tank is flooded
anyone who can name the guy in the reflection rules
Well unfortunatelya good amount of the glosso was just too far gone. Fortunately though my LFS has some! I'll probably stop one day over lunch and snag some more. Other than that, things are going well.
I brought my dual t5 normal output light from home and it should provide enough light. Found a marineland light timer at the thrift store for 3 bucks too. Can't beat that.
Looks like the joker! And you probably don't need to worry too much about glass taps. I'd set up a little note card next to it that says please don't tap on glass. I know how people can be at work lol. But many shrimp that I've seen scared jump backwards, then up a little. I've never seen one skyrocket out
Decided to pick up some fresh glosso at a LFS today and thankfully the stars aligned and I was able to take my lunch and make it back with 15 minutes to spare. Things were slow during everyone's usual lunch hour, so I replanted the foothill and sprayed and resealed things after making sure to get the roots in DEEP
this should be a little more encouraging to look at daily and I had about 5 patches extra that was added to my shrimp tank, which is doing well. shrimp are molting and active and stoked

Reason: added more rambling
thanks for the tip. i'll probably just eventually have to start transplanting/yanking it although I'm sure now would be a good time to get such a barrier setup, huh?
do you know of anyone that makes something for this? i figured i'd just snag some garden edging or something similar from the local hardware store, but i'm not sure if there's a better option for a submerged barrier
I am quite tempted. Some of my Anubias is not responding as we'll as I'd like which bums me out a bit. May pull them soon and let them live temporarily in the 10g. Still thinking of ember tetras and Pygmy Cory cats once said flood happens
