|JEden8||Well I have come to the conclusion that it's time to put this tank up for sale. I've been having a blast breeding them and bringing them into my LFS for store credit to fund my aquarium hobby. I've slowly been selling my tanks as I don't have as much time as I used to. Right now I want to spend as much time with my daughter as I can and put all of my attention on her. Still figuring out a price for the entire setup but something will get posted in the Florida section for those of you interested around Tampa.|

|JEden8||Thanks Kristen! My shrimp tanks have been neglected since my daughter was born. Who knew infants would take up all of my spare time!? HAHA I broke down two of my tanks so I'll be doing a lot of work on this tank over the next few weeks. Thinking about breaking it down and doing a thorough cleaning since I've noticed a decline in my shrimp reproduction. What part of Florida are you in?|

Well it's been a while since I've posted any updates on the tank. The tank has been a little neglected with trimming and all of that but everything is still going well with the tank!
Here's an updated shot:

Once I get the other shrimp species breeding then I will be able to double or even triple that amount. I just bring them into LFS's and get store credit so I never have to worry about buying any supplies needed. Well worth the investment if you get the chance!

Still looking good!!!
It is different than before, but I still like the looks of it! That piece of wood it very cool too! Do the shrimp normally keep it looking that clean, or is it the plecs, or a combo of both? I have noticed that the wood and rocks in most shrimp tanks always look very clean, so I figured it was from all of the shrimp constantly picking over it for food!
I have been wanting to setup a shrimp tank for a long while but cash flow is very slow, and shrimp can be expensive!
Anyway keep up the great work on the tank!!!! I can't wait to see it return to its previous glory!!!

Here's a quick snapshot of the updated tank. Not the biggest fan of it as I loved it before. That's what sucks about moving Sorry it took so long!

Everything will be determined on what you are looking to grow plant wise and what your goals are with the tanks. I use low light, slow growing plants that don't require a ton of fertilizers. That and I'm not using high light and pressurized C02. Don't know if this helps but all of the details are really needed to get the best advice of what has worked for others.
You're good. That's what the forum is for!

Hey there! I have the same tank as you. Tank looked really nice before the move.
I just planted my tank and was wondering if i needed any ferts to help start the plants off right. Do you have any ideas? what kinds and where to get?
Is this considered a High Jack? I just thought id ask..

|JEden8||I didn't get a chance to work on this tank today unfortunately. I did get my 90 gallon set back up so I'll get some pics up of it tomorrow. Water is still a little cloudy. I should get this tank back up by the weekend.|

Here's how everything currently looks after the move:
Baby Albino Bristlenose Plecos:
So ever since about 2-3 weeks before we moved, I started noticing about 4 or 5 dead cherry shrimp about every other day in the tank. I figured it was from the larger plecos producing too much waste so I moved them out. No change after that. I got the tank to our new house and they are still dying. Any ideas as to what is causing this? Also, why do my anubias look like this?
