That's amazing T!!!!!


Tainted Glory, do you know if the pantyhose is enough? I think if the flow is still strong it will suck the shrimp onto the pantyhose and keep them from being able to free themselves.

This is my new shrimp tank. I shot the photo earlier tonight. The first plants went in 6 weeks ago, the shrimp (about a dozen from beviking from the swap'n'shop section) a month ago. The mature female I received is pregnant and due in about a week, and three immature females are now showing their first saddles.

Fauna: about a dozen Cherry Shrimp, 2 Apple Snails, and some unplanned inhabitants (pond snails, MTS, planaria, copepods, bryozoa).

Flora: Java Moss, Java Fern 'Windeløv', Anubias nana, Anubias nana petite, dwarf Nymphaea sp., Cryptocoryne wendtii, C. c. balansae, C. beckettii petchii, and bits of Water Sprite, Hygrophila difformis and H. 'Tropic Sunset.'

Gear: 20XH tank, 28W 6700K Corallife CF light, Eheim 2232 filter, Filter-Max III Prefilter, 100W VisiTherm heater, African wood, Flourite and red flint gravel.



Want to play a dumb game? In the photo I found four shrimp: two males and two of the females showing their first saddles. Can you find them?

I'll take some pictures of mine when I get home from work. It's a 5.5g AGA and is a month or so old.
