Ohhhh these are awesome! I love tank 2, but the rest of them are also great. I wish I had the room for this! I'd have a different color community of shrimp in every one :-)

Thanks! Yes I am probably going to make at least 2 of these into shrimp tanks.

It would be intense if you found rock or driftwood that 'carried' through each tank. Or if you could create some type of river that links all four. Thatd be amazing

I was going to mention the substrate for the Blyxa but if you have had success that way then no need to change it.

That's a very cool setup. I like all the tanks, but I agree that number two is my favorite.

Wow that is an amazing idea! The cool thing about this is it would only take me 30 minutes to do it too. Check out my mini stream tank, I posted a video somewhere on here. It would be sweet to do them all together like that somehow.

I suggest the genus of fish for which I am named. I have a Fundulopanchax gardneri lafia and he's the most spunky fish I've ever seen, meaning he's amusingly aggressive and yet small. They also have very beautiful colours and fins. They're uncommon in pet stores unfortunately...

New setup!

Now a 5x nano!


Unfortunately tank 1 crashed with bga after the endlers died during hurricane sandy a few weeks ago. All the shrimp made it somehow though. This is the new scape I am messing around with. I want to fill in the foreground with black sand maybe.
This one has really filled in nicely I think...

The center tank is a fluval spec that used to be my desk tank at work. I recently upgraded to a 20 long at my job and knew the perfect place for this one! I'd like to eventually make this tank saltwater with a few inverts and maybe a couple easy corals on some live rock, but realistically will probably not get to it any time soon.
High tech tank has filled in quite a bit. Added blyxa japonica to the back. You guys were right, blyxa wouldn't grow out of the substrate.
This ones kind of just thrown together but doing well and has somehow become home to a thriving colony of scuds which I can feed to the big fish in my upstairs tank as a treat.

I like the line! The spec looks a little out of place, but still nice. You should fill the taller spec with mosses!

Got to the saltwater project sooner than I thought! I'll post better updated pics later when things are all set, but here is the current situation

Oh wow cool. In a spec? That's gotta be difficult.
