I don't know what to "cull" for. I guess I can try for more black coloration in the new Spec, but I was thinking of reserving it as a yellow tank. Hmm decisions.

Lol, another high grade, low quality CRS they're all doing well, waiting to see if they will berry before I dump more $ into better shrimp.

Another surprise, a fish fry!


Best pic I could get before it skirted off, CPD fry? I have no other fish in here... looks really elongated though.

Do you think that 2 of the Eheim PowerLEDs is really necessary? I'm thinking of getting just one for my 8g tank with moss, crypts, anubias and dwarf sag/vals. Think that'd be enough light?

Not necessary, I just put the other one on cause I had a spare around. 1 light is definitely enough for your plants listed.

WHOA you can almost see the eyes on the eggs in the first pic! That's a really nice shot. Some of the rilis you sent me have really nice coloring as well!

Now for the last two pictures, is that the lighting that is making the shrimp seem blueish? Like their actual body coloration.
