Love this so much

Are you gonna let the hydrocoytle run wild or try to keep it like a carpet?

It is better to travel well than to arrive.

Thanks. I'll probably let it run its course. Then when I get tired of it I can trim it down.

That hydrocotyle is so pretty. A great addition to these tanks, scalewise. Interested to see how it fills in over time!

Just completely gutted it earlier today and spilled some water just now... Looking for some help in the redesign!

Like many, I use the beamworks and an AC20.

No fauna right now, but it is set up for CRS.



On another note, this is my little 2.5 gallon neglection tank with snails and flora!

Neglection tanks are kind of nice I found a tank I literally haven't touched in months (took all shrimp out of it) but found a shrimp living it in. Was completely shocked.

Nice tanks. Try to get more vertical usage of space in your new 18".

Sorry if this is a stupid questoin, but where do you get the 3 gallon model? I can't seem to find the aquarium on their site, is it out of production? After looking and Jakes and yours tanks I decided that I might just like to set one up

18g (Red Cherry Neo Shrimp | Malawa Shrimp)
7.5g (Yellow Neo Shrimp)
3.2g (Pumpkin Neo Shrimp)
2g (Snails)
11.4g (new home soon for the Pumpkin Neos)

I'm moving the Pumpkin Neos out of the 3.2g and into a Mr. Aqua 11.4g.

I can't keep the TDS under 300. I don't know whats going on. Also, I don't care for how small it is. When I look at my other tanks, it doesn't look right and I prefer more space for my shrimp.

I don't know what I will do with this tank. Maybe single CPO? Snails? Any ideas?

Last time I counted there was over 40 Pumpkins and lots of babies.

7.5g (Yellow Neo Shrimp)
3.2g (Pumpkin Neo Shrimp)
2g (Snails)

It's a great tank for culls, or depending on how you scape it, it could be good for a Dwarf Orange Crayfish.

I know that I'm probably going to stick a cray in my 2 gal once the shrimp die of old age.
