the only one thats a TT there is the one on the far right- the larger one. the rest are cherry shrimp. they have that coloration as young adults. the females will get very red after they berry a few times.

Saddled female cherries would be red, They could be Orange neo's or pumpkins. Very clean tank BTW!

no, they could also be an orangy-red color because they havent colored up yet. i saw this in most of my PFR when they were young.
I'm telling you those are cherries. they have to be. they are the offspring of the last cherry shrimp that were in here. probably the pfrs.
you could take a clear close up of one of the shrimp in question to prove me wrong though :P

You mention the plant baby tears, but I don't see any in there... enlighten me?

Looks great, by the way!

They are all TT's it could be your vision or your monitor, for that matter it could be my camera, etc. but I assure you they are all TT's.

The bag was labeled Hemianthus glomeratus which I've seen listed as baby tears, pearlweed, and pearlgrass, it's my first time trying this plant so get me straightened out, it't front and center.

I do have Hemianthus callitrichoides - dwarf baby tears in another tank and the form and habit are much different so it seems the Hemianthus glomeratus may be mislabeled.

Geniusdudekiran thanks for calling me out on that plant, our resident plant guru at gwapa says it looks like Rotala rotundifolia so someone mislabeled the bag and I'm too dumb to know the difference. But I'm glad to know what I have now and I was wondering why it looked nothing like the dwarf baby tears in my other tank, duh?

No problem, I was about to point out that it was R. rotundifolia but I was unsure of what plant you were referring to at the time; thought you may have been referring to some small clump hidden in the tank.

Both are extremely fast growers and visually appealing, so no harm no foul

Man I've got a lot of fry in this tank, I just sat and watched the tank today after adding some Barley and I noticed there are fry in 4 different stages along with a berried female. So in just a couple of months I've gone from 8 shrimp to maybe 35 or 40. Things should get interesting soon if production stays at this level, this is turning out to be my favorite tank.

Lol. Maybe they saw my thread and are trying to keep up with my L144's.:p

Cable they must have because I did a trim on the fissidens last night and shrimp were flying everywhere. I took the clipping and dressed two small pieces of wood with the mini fissidens and it looked brown because it came from the low tech into a tank with CO2 and ferts.

Here's a before and after:

Before


After - I think I'll pull the largest 'green gecko' for the gwapa auction, it's still a little crowded on the left.

I've seen a couple of juviniles that could be Cherry's but I think they are Tangerine Tigers because they were TPFR so they should have bold red color and not be able to be mistaken as a translucent red.

The tank looks really good!

I'm hoping to set up a similar tank before long and really like the look of your light, but I'm a little unclear from your earlier posts which model it is. You mentioned that Marine Depot advised against one you were looking at (this one maybe? Marine Depot: UP Aqua UA-F17 6.69 Inch Flexible LED), but I'm not sure if you ended up getting that one after all or something similar from another source.

It also looks like there's a 9.8" model (scroll down about half way: http://micro-reefs.com/lighting.html), but if I'm reading the specs correctly, it's the same brightness as the 6" version. Do you think the greater spread at the expense of some intensity would work better in a tank this size?
