Check out the baby shrimp. Aqlthough small, it is there, just behind the larger one. Good comparative size indicator



And now heres some pics of my new CRS. At $5 AUD per shrimp, Im very pleased.





I have about 30 shrimp in my tank, and they are out way more than my fish. There are always shrimp boucing around the foliage, top of rocks and across the foreground carpet. -Im liking them more and more.

I'm extremely happy with them. As you can see I've got good growth rates. - however you will need to ramp down the blue spectrums, as they are essentially designed for marine, and much too blue for a planted tank aesthetically.

I do like the varied colour spectrums and adjustments you can make. Tis is one of the main reasons i went for these lights. it was the cheapest light available that had this capability. Storm mode is a great novelty, and cloud mode gives a great ambiance to the tank that's real enjoyable. Changes the whole mood of the tank. - virtually limitless colour and light intensity variations.

God luck if you get one, and be sure to tag me for the journal.

- if you're planning on buying one, what size tank are you planning to use it for?

To elaborate on growth rates, a good indicator is.... - it has been 3 and a half months, and the UG has nearly carpeted the floor. I trim back about once a fortnight with the stem plants to half the height of the tank, and it reaches the top by the water by next trim.

So Im very pleased with the results. Hope this helps with your decision.

Nice tank! I went as low tech as I could because of the prices of things here in Australia :/
