Hi, I've been lurking around here for about four months and today I stumbled across your thread. Wow! It is wonderful, your style of writing is very refreshing. Thank you. I even joined and subscribed (I'd seen that before but didn't know what it meant, know I do). So, I started reading this thread from the very beginning, I'm on 'page' 4 or so at this point. I noticed you've edited to remove your pictures. Will they show up later? Also, do you have any shrimp that get to be about the same size as Amano shrimp? But, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful thread. I'll keep reading but it will take me some time to get to the end ...
May you catch the addiction, and I'm an enabler as well as co-addict. What an honor to receive your very first TPT post.
As you read through the thread, you will learn about DK's "squirrely brain" which needs to have regular pressure releases or else she goes insane, thus, this thread. Mostly, it's like yelling out into a big ol' echo chamber, my posts here, but sometimes a body chimes in and that, in the lyrics of the sound of music song Edelweiss
, causes her ego to "bloom and grow, forever," so perhaps it's best that she preaches mostly to the silent masses. Or whoever the heck reads this. She has no idea who they are, 'cause most of them don't say anything...
The pictures... ah... yes. Well, when she started this thread, she had NO IDEA how long it would get. She has 90 MB of picture space allotted to her on TPT and has used it all up, mostly in this thread. So she wipes the beginning pictures as she needs space. You will also learn, reading this thread, that she's a hoarder, so this is an exercise against hoarding, wiping her earlier pictures, teaching herself that she cannot keep everything indefinitely
. Yeah, that's it. She's working on her hoarding.
Um. Actually, I've never kept Amanos, so don't know what size they get. The biggest muthuz I have are Super Tigers, Black Tigers and Camo Tigers. But if you're asking because you want to put a LARGER shrimp in with FISH that will pester or eat them, re-think your model, from the shrimp's point of view. It's a level of Dantes Inferno, to do that to a shrimp, and try to "cure" the problem by using a larger shrimp. Like, if I asked you to move to North Korea, as a peasant.
ha dk i laughed so hard reading your new post i scared moose he was asleep beside me lol. i got the " what the heck was that for" look lol. hehe i will be the leader of the Shrimp Protective Services, hehe you can scoop them up and send them my way and i will find a good home for the little ones lol
For you, C. Today's pathetic attempts at photography, through slimy glass and all. But DK is just enamored with broke blacks. They are so coo-el, and every one is different.
There are a few awesome T-Rex's in there right now (they are produced in very small numbers) but DK's efforts to get any decent pictures were in vain, this morning, they move too fast and are always blurry, grrrrrrrrrrrr! So these are not the coolest specimens, but the ones that held still. Up close to the glass.
