Congrats! The first batch is always the most exciting. I'm doubtful that their survival rate will be very high with the bettas in the tank, though.

Berried shrimp and plants growing well. Can't ask for more! Looks awesome. I'm a big fan of that flame moss you've got on the driftwood. Sweet!

Congrats on the berried shrimp! Also, that should look awesome once the UG grows in.

That's a marimo ball cut open and spread out. I've got one in my 10g shrimp house too. They look pretty cool when you do that to them.

So here are some updates!

I have had my first batch of shrimp babies hatch!! WOOOOO I was looking at one of the berried females and i spotted the tinniest shrimp ever just picking around in the gravel, these pics were taken a few days ago, but now they are coloring up just a bit more. I still have about 3 other berried females so more babies to come.





Here is a tank shot, seems kinda dark, sorry!


Its been wonderful, i have not had any algae all month! I scraped off the green algae on the glass last month and since then i have not had anything else. All i have is DIY Co2 and i dont dose ferts at all. Pretty awesome having almost zero maintenance besides weekly 20% WCs.


Also my other project is not doing so hot, i have not been watering it as much cuz i have been to busy so some leaves have been turning yellow, but ill get back to watering more often. Its carpeting nicely though.

Enjoy

Shrimparium is looking good! Congrats on the new babies. It's crazy that they are so small, it's almost impossible to get a camera to focus clearly on them.
