Back to the journal... Finally getting things settled post-move and the shrimp are thriving again! Can't wait to get another 20L started up.

|somewhatshocked||Nope, I don't have shrimp for sale. Please note, though, that buying/selling isn't permitted outside the For Sale section of the forum. You'll want to take a look there. Tons of options and tons of different shrimp available there.|

Shrimp Stratum is a buffering substrate, so it's something typically used in tanks where you need to lower pH a bit or absorb some KH.
Inert substrates - like gravel - are fine for shrimp like Neos that don't need to live in conditions as acidic as Taiwan Bees.

|action20||For the shrimp, does it make a huge difference if you use small rocks instead of Fluval Shrimp Stratum?|

It's low-medium. I have a 20" Fugeray on a 10gal and use a layer of fiberglass window screen to cut things down a bit.
That's the tank in my signature. A month or so ago, I pulled a few pounds of moss out of that tank after just 4-5 months of growth.

Just thought I would tease something I've been working on for about two years:
It's a shrimp food that I doubt I'll ever be making in bulk because of the physical labor required. Not a fan of climbing trees at the ripe, old age of 31.
But I've been seeing some crazy results and increased breeding among my CBS colonies that I've been testing it on throughout 2013.
Also, if anyone wants to trade (human) bodies, that'd be appreciated. Not looking forward to climbing trees again any time soon.

Moved about 20 PRLs from my 45-F to the PRL tank.
Lots of work and updates.

Nope - you're over-thinking it.
8 hours of low light. Nothing special.

If you can't grow moss, you're trying too hard.
Needs cool temperatures, good flow, no special lighting, no ferts, no CO2. Fine and dandy regardless of the species or water conditions, I've found.

|jkan0228||How do you get your moss to grow so thick with no ferts or CO2?|

Time for a bit of an update.
BKKs and PRLs are doing swell:
This is a daily scene:
Always love finding new Mischling babies:
Random Crypts are doing much better than expected:
The tank isn't much to look at but I spend more time staring at it than any other.
