UPS dropped off a Special Package Today.

I'm a sucker for ADA stuff already...you throw in the words "special package"...you might as well take my money....ADG was more than happy to oblige.

Mini M Premier Set Link

Here's some tank Porn for now.

Playing around with a Nex-6 and Macro Lens. Not up to Speedies' Macros...but better than before.

Pimpin bro! You're getting a little better already with that Sony. Shrimp aren't so shabby either .

On that last shot, you need to close up that aperture some more so more of the subject comes into focus.

Yeah, I messed up on the last one...I only posted cause she's loaded...hahah..

I can't get any closer...the macro doesn't zoom....I dunno....I might have to crop and blow it up to get the super duper close ones....even that I can't see all the hairs on my shrimps like your shots...

Sunday Tank Maintenance Nano
  • 20% Water Change
  • Massive Moss Trim so I can see the babies better

Starting to wind down this tank. Only inhabitants left are about 20 PBL babies that are too small to catch and move to the 60p. They'll be big enough to move in about 2-3 weeks. This tank still has plenty of life left so I don't know what I'm going to do. Revers UGF works pretty well.

1) Break it down and turn it into a Cardinal tank. (got some coming in May)
2) Put some Pure Red lines in here until I get my Mini M cycled then move them again to Mini M

This tank at it's moss peak. Looks good but hard to see the shrimps. ~6 months ago.



The tank as it is now. Not as scaped but a better shrimp tank.

All you need is some Mini X Mas Moss, Weeping moss for the wood and stainless steel mesh and fishing line....and lots of patience.

Here's how it started and it grew to that jungle.

Time. Medium light with short photoperiod to prevent algae. Once you get algae on your moss you're done. 6 hours max. It takes a while tho, the moss grows faster in the beginning when the soil is still leaching ammonia.

Question, does it mean I shouldn't grow weeping moss with some hair algae on it? I'll put transferring it into my new tank, just not sure if I should do it. It has very quick grow though. (moss)
