Cool tanks!

Here's a pic of another one of my females. I can't really get a good pic of the babies...I have only seen one at a time, but the color has been different so I know there are at least two!

had to change the light because my grow bulb burnt out my walmart desk lamp.

I have seen at least 4 shrimplets and I have 3 berried females now!

I also added a zebra nerite

Added ten tangerine tigers to this tank. The orange really shows in contrast with the green moss and the bluevelvets!
