I did a little updating, I cleaned it, tested my parameters, did a water change and added some plants.
Just a few more crypts, and a carpeting plant. Plants Kudos to Mike (Ebi)
Oblongshrimp sent me a scoop of tiger shrimp. They're beautiful juvies right now. And hopefully they do OK in the tank.
It still has the one lone Blue Diamond left. She's a healthy, beautiful shrimp. She just has nobody to mate with. If anybody wants to send me a few blue diamond males, I'd be more than happy to pay.
I do have a question. I've never experienced this before. The shrimp are all swimming up and down, across and back across the tank. It just doesn't seem like they've settled in yet. Is this a normal thing, or are they unhappy with water parameters? I appreciate an answer on this.
Here's a pic a week later. Had some leaves fall off, some adjustments, but overall it's settling nice!
And it's inhabitants! Beautiful tigers. Mostly juvi or even smaller than juvi, but that's what I asked for. Quite unfortunately I had one jump out on me a hours after a 5-hour acclimation, but they've settled in really nicely and they're gorgeous.
stay tuned. I'll be posting pics frequently, as this is my favorite tank at the moment!
I go through a cycle of loving and not loving tanks, all based on how they look and how their inhabitants are doing. For a long time, my CRS journal was my favorite tank. I killed it with the wrong light.
I think that I've got the perfect amount of light on here, and if I monitor it well, I can keep its 'cuteness' quite high lol.
