Not much to report bump. Still not seeing shrimp often. Lost another one too. Noticed there was a PFR baby in the tank, must have hitch hiked in with some moss I added from my PFR tank. Caught it pretty easily and back to its own tank.

Thought I had a berried female from the start, but not so sure now. I don't see them often enough to be able to monitor. I may have to place another order when speedie gets more so I can re-establish my shrinking colony.

Hopefully they'll breed and you don't have to. My 6 are strong, and I'm 60% sure I've got 2 males. I'm 100% sure I've got one male.

I hope so too. I might grab a few anyways, he owes me one for the DOA. I want to order some of his Supreme Reds anyways to add to my stock of PFR...so when he gets more Blue Diamonds in, I'll probably get a few and ask to see if he can send me some that are sexed so I know I have a couple males. I know there was one in there, haven't seen him lately though. None of them really, only when lights are out.

New shrimp are here. Bought 10 Super Tigers to add to the tank. They are drip acclimating as I type. I plan to drip them for at least a couple hours. Hope to get some pics of the shrimp up later after they are in the tank. Here's a few of them dripping...

Packaged well...


My setup...


Container with the shrimp...


And just throwing this in...my planted HOB is doing well. I plan to add more plants in time and get some rip planters as well. I need a better lighting solution too. That light is great for just over the tank but it doesn't really give light to the HOB unless I twist it up at an angle. I need to get something to hang over the tank...something with a little more power that can be hung high enough to clear the plants but still provide enough light to the bottom of the tank. I thought just a CFL and clip on dome suspended above for the time being but I need to figure out how high so I can maintain low light in the tank. Any idea? I have 15w bulbs and 20w bulbs in 6500k.


That's it for now...more to come as I am able to get better shots.

You should get something that hangs from the floor and is super strong.

Nice acclimation shots. I'm very excited.

Getting ready to put them in the tank. There's 11 or them, 2 molts already. Excited too cause I finally saw three BD's in the tank, one male, and I think a berried female. She's so dark it's hard to tell for sure.

Anyways, the tigers are nice. They are super tigers but not SUPER tigers. Not like my last ones with the really nice thick stripes, but they have the colors on their head and tails. They'll still be a cool addition to the tank.

Ok, seems the tigers drew out the BD's...there's 4 and one confirmed berried, not the one I was thinking, so there's one, likely two berried and definitely one male. Also, one of the tigers is berried. So, it's turned out to be a good shrimp day. Too bad I have to go to work in 40 minutes or it would have been a great day all around. Lights are off on the tank for now, I'm letting the tigers settle in a few hours then I'll turn them on. I'll get some pics later of the new additions and maybe the berried BD's!

Thanks...super excited! Especially since I was sure I only had two BD's left out of 11. Only 4/11 still kinda sux...but at least there should be a nice batch of babies soon. There could possibly be more in there still hiding. I know for sure I lost 4.
