Evo's Ebi's-PRL

First off a great thanks to those who have helped me with my first actual attempt at using Aquasoil Amazonia Ch3fb0yrdee, speedie408, h4n, randyl, bostoneric, and others who I've asked questions to numerous times concerning this tank! I had a bad experience with the actual first time using it since some shrimp I picked up had bacterial infections that wiped everyone out and I stopped using the soil and tossed it, cleaned out the tank and the filter I was using and decided to re-set it using the knowledge I gained through the advice given to me! So here are some pictures showing the progress from the beginning to what it now looks like:












I prefer the simplistic look to the tank and won't be adding any other plants to it as the shrimp keep plucking off the mini fissidens off the driftwood which has now made a clump on the pre-filter guard -_-

The first picture is the Finnex Fugeray-R Red Boost but that created algae problems when i had the tank previously set up so I went and got a 3watt Wave Point 10k clip light which is the black fixture on the current picture!

I just recently put them in there as I was waiting for the mini fissidens to attach to the driftwood (I had the driftwood sitting in a tub with light on it for about three weeks) but the shrimp keep picking the mini fissidens off it lol. I'll see if I can snap some closer pics tonight if they color up for pics!

Nishiki, Xin, Ebiten, Crimson, Benibachi, Hakata, Taiwan Elegant Lady and Feather.

That's a good collection of JPRL and PRL.

I have yet to get babies from them as they were in a tank with Eco-Complete and the two berried females kicked their eggs from their first time being pregnant. Hopefully now I'll get more berries this time around!

dreamer_yoyo had the ebiten/crimson/benibachi mix and i got some of the mix band prl from max kenji for more benibachi genes. I really like how the ebiten have darker red but haven't been able to source any ebitens at all to help further that trait that i prefer to have later on
