I'm sure she does... lemme shoot her a message and see what availability she has.
Come to think of it I guess the tank name is a misnomer now but its staying haha. Its an ooold song by a band called My Bloody Valentine but I'm sure nobody caught that.
Marimoball: Thanks man! I think the 'belem' is right there with stauro 'repens' as my fav depending on the layout. For bigger tanks I think stauro 'porto velho' is awesome.

|problemman||I have a male orange flash they are nice but I live clown killies! Does your breeder ship?|

|MARIMOBALL||Man sorry you lost the tigers, but the tank is looking great. Your tank was one of the reasons I switched from DHG to belem. I love belem its the ultimate foreground plant.|

Thanks man! I forgot to mention that all the OEBT shrimp were lost over the summertime. Seems that the only way I can have luck with Cardina sp. is to have them in a low light/no touch kind of tank.
So right now this tank is empty of inhabitants and I'm in the process of trying to decide what to stock it with. It would be a nice tank for a pair of Orange Flash Apistos which someone in the club breeds... or a colony of clown killies also a local breeder... or I've also considered a bunch of banded gobies. Too many choices.

Snapped a few quick pics while I was mucking about in the tank room today. This tank fared better than my others during the summer months.
Right now the lighting is dropped to a single 24W T5HO 10k bulb. Going to see how it fares without CO2 for a while as I only have a 5lb bottle feeding both this and my 20 long.
Lots of BBA at the moment but will kill it back once the tank stabilizes without injection.

|chris.rivera3||WOW!!!...that foreground of belem is amazing!!! i really want to try that out for my 20 long|

Haha non_c I am most definitely not afraid of 6 inches of substrate. Just afraid of the cost of all that aquasoil. :P
I'll have to get some updated pics soon. I just hacked up the tank pretty good on saturday and pulled a chunk of 'belem' out for a trade. Dunno why but the silly blue tigers were crawling all over my hands while I was trying to trim the carpet out. Its almost like they were trying to stop me... its never happened before.

|non_compliance||Whoa!! Love this tank!!! Great job. I'm always partial to great hardscapes.... good rockwork.. good elevation changes.... I like a aquarist who's not afraid of 6+ inches of substrate.|

|VadimShevchuk||i cant believe i never saw this tank. One of the best ten gallons i seen, and that carpet is nice!|

Thanks for the 'grats and nice comment stingraysule. I may try to snap a pic sometime although it'll be just another pic of a berried OE blue tiger. At least its one of my darkest girls, not sure how that translates to % of darker offspring. Not too concerned about that at this point though.
On an unrelated note good luck to the Atlanta Braves tonight as they try to take down the very good TB Rays!
