sKindy's 5g Fluval Chi Shrimp tank
Thanks to you all, I decided it was high time I had a shrimp tank of my own! It also didn't help that I found a Fluval Chi 5g on Craigslist for only $35. So, I picked it up, moved some plants over from my main tank, and picked up the last two RCS from my LFS.

River rocks and Manzanita branch
Any suggestions, comments, or advice is welcomed! I recently received some really beautiful plants from OTV (you're awesome) so I am trying to split them between my two tanks. I placed the L. Aromatica in here because I love it's colors. I hope they stay and I hope it gets enough light! What I really want to do is to try and create a moss tree. We'll see, I'll have to scour for manzanita branches and then I'll have to decide whether or not I have the patience to tie the moss down.
My two RCS seem to be pretty happy. I love watching them graze and swim around! One is definitely bigger than the other - is this how you would generally sex them?
Here is a shot on the smaller one. If you look in the background there is a long red blur with a little circular black blur. That's the bigger one just chillin' on the plants!
