NYREPS: Those photos are great! Especially when the wall color is visible - provides an interesting contrast.

I don't think anyone is going to want to post their tank after seeing those. I can't imagine the time and patience it took to get the tanks to look so stunning.

Given how many different styles of layouts there are, and how many levels of experience, NO ONE should ever feel--or be made to feel--bad sharing their work.

Here's my cherry shrimp tank. Low-tech, medium light and set-up for minimal maintenance requirements.

3g JBJ Picotope
substrate: fluorite
hardscape: local pink granite, one large piece mopani
plants:
crypts, cardamine lyrata, anubia nana petite, mini-bolbitis, xmas moss, dwarf baby tears, spikey guppy grass, frogbit, probably still some duckweed and dwarf pennywort in there as well.
Stock: cherry shrimp, 1x olive nerite

Stocking is *very* low at the moment as I'm slowly clearing out the cherry culls/mixed offspring before bringing in some more FPR's to go with the 3 females that I got from a mostly DOA shipment a couple months ago.



Did have some riccia mats (see album for past pictures) but ended up removing them as not being worth the constant trimming.

Yeah but the thread is very old, many posters not even on here anymore. I feel it was time for a new thread myself
