STILL a success though (: ! I doubt I'll be making any additions/modifications to this tank anytime soon... other than getting some MTS from a LFS since I added way more sand compared to my former 5.5 gal tank. Gotta keep that sand aerated
Great job with the home relocation though! I drained the 10g tank I was moving them from all they way down to only 1" of water, and they still kept dodging the net and turkey baster combo. Heck, one tiger even flipped out of the net back into the water... omg. How did you get all the sand out with the shrimp still in the tank?

I guess your shrimp are breeding for you as well now ?

+1 to adding MTS. Just don't let them take over the tank :P

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.
