My shrimps - Hello form germany

Hi all,

maybe I should tell you a little more about myself?

Some might know me from the German board garnelenforum.de, I've been admin there.

I have two kids and a wife, who are more or less supportive.

I breed some shrimps in more than 36 tanks.

Moreover, we have rabbits and a dog.

Thanks for reading. I hope to have a good time with you here.

beautiful!
Can you list the types of shrimp and tell me what camera you use?
I have a canon s230 (ibex?) and cannot focus in my tank at all.
cheers

Very nice shrimp! Looks like you are doing a wonderful job with them. I also see some very nice looking snails w/ your shrimp too. Thanks for sharing!

And, wow! More than 36 tanks!?!! I don't feel so bad anymore about the dozen that I have.

Hello,

my main shrimp room has 29 tanks. Oh yeah. My weekly water changes (800 Liter) are tiring but my shrimps reward it to me, fortunately. Have a look in it:

Herzlich willkommen beim Planted Tank!

Nice photos, I wish my wife was as supportive and encourage me to build a shrimp room.
