I've been pretty much neglecting my tanks this summer. Just letting the shrimps and plants go wild. The good news is that all the shrimps are doing well and there are babies and berries everywhere. I've eradicated all the CRS from the left Iwagumi side and that'll be my black cull tank. The right side tank will remain pure blacks. Over time I'll breed out the red gene from the left side too.

The moss has grown out so it's pretty hard to see all the shrimps. The right side could use a hard trim on the moss. Here's some updated pics.

Contact H4N or put up a WTB on the SnS. A few people have them for sale.

So my 30c Cull tank with the rock went south on me for some reason unknown. I suspect toxic Purigen that had been sitting in a mesh bag on my kitchen counter sucking up God knows what? Instead of recharging the bag, I just tossed it straight into the tank and a week later shrimps started dying on me.:doh At least it wasn't the PBL tank.

So I had to fire up a quickie cull tank for the remaining survivors. Here's some pics of my new cull tank. This tank is simple. Some Akadama because it doesn't leach, some pre cycled AS in a planter. Sponge Filter that's it. No fancy filtration. Just a 3.5 gallons with a lid I had sitting in the garage for emergencies like this.

The only shrimps I put in here are the CRS from the cull tanks I'm hoping the reds will breed true. I gave away all my yellows and adopted some Fire Reds from someone local breaking down their tank. After keeping Rili, Blue Rili, Yellow, Green, Chocolate, Snowballs. Fire Reds are still my favorite Neos. They are classic
