Hoping I can breed some really red ones.
Hi, I'm new here and love these tanks (especially the left one) and this thread.

I'm planning a 2-Gal planted nano for shrimp and will be following!

Thanks. They've grown in quite a bit. Need to do another trim and a photo shoot this week so I can update the thread.

Welcome to the forum!

Super-excited!

Just ordered some extremely red CRS. Here's hoping I'm able to do some cool things with my existing bloodlines.

Dude! Where did you get the really red ones? How much did they cost? They sound AWESOME!

Any chance we can see a shot of these all together in situ, if they're sitting next to each other?

Really, like your setups with shrimp. Hoping one day I can go in that direction.

travelvice: There are several photos of the cubes together in this thread.

UDGags: Thanks. These little bugs have bred like crazy in the cubes, as they have in my other tanks, so I'm looking forward to the Super Reds I ordered. Sure to be tons of fun.

I have many tanks on a huge, industrial rack, so it's not really possible to photograph them in detail near each other. There are a few rack photos spread throughout some of my journals. Will try to get an updated shot or two this weekend.

Super Reds arrived:



Dripping them in to the 25cm cube now.

Hoping they color up quite a bit.

Okay, they're coloring up slightly:








Not the reds I want, so I guess I'm still on the hunt. But I will attempt to work with these a bit to see what happens.
