Long overdue update. Both shrimp species are thriving. CRS are frequently berried but never seem to hatch. Cherry population is growing pretty well. Overall I have a ton of shrimp in this tank.

Just added 6 celestial perl danios and am loving them. They go perfectly with the shrimp. They are leaving the adults alone and hopefully not eating too many shrimp babies.

I rescaped the whole thing and like this look much better. Just need to wait for the liliopsis to grow in in the back more and it should look nice.

It looks good and I like without the background. I was reading your journal and I'm courious about the worms you had in the tank, are they still around and where do you think they came from?

I had both planaria (flatworms) and nematodes (roundworms) they were both small and you could really only see them squirming around in the substrate pressed up against the glass. I think they probably hitched a ride over on the substrate or plants. At the time I had no fish and was overfeeding a bit which resulted in a fair amount of worms (and also pond snails). I cut back on feeding and there are almost none left. Hopefully the fish I just added will snack on the rest of them, although I don't think they're really hurting anything in there.

Update! Things are a bit overgrown and need to be trimmed down.
