MABJ </3 the lack of response has saddened me. Lol just kidding. Can anybody tell me how lights may affect or not affect the habits of shrimp breeding?

MABJ Check out these shrimp

This one is an interesting tiger with a blue hue to it. It's next to an OBET. They'll be separated within a month ^^.

Some updates. Got mini fiss in there, I cleaned it up a little and moved it around to my rack. The light is removed and it is officially on "rack light".

I think it still looks great.

MABJ Forgot to mention that they are five high quality OBETs from Speedie. I won them in a very generous RAOK.

MABJ Some of the new permanent residents. They're not of breeding age yet, so keeping them with my other tigers shouldn't be an issue. And if they do interbreed, it'll just make my normal tiger line more interesting, and I'll keep the OBETs separate.

MABJ Added a fan to the tank yesterday. AC in the house broke so I decided it was necessary.

Is fluctuation between 69-73 degrees OK for shrimp?

MABJ I did a water change, roughly 30%, yesterday, and I've never seen the shrimp happier.

I'm going to do water changes each week.

It induced at least one molt. one mama's stomach is super ready for berries and her saddle is showing big time! Hoping for berries next time she molts.

MABJ Okay let's do a much requested update although there's not much to say ^^.

It's been going well. Shrimp have saddles, I still have 8 left, which is what I've had for about a year. Things have been very smooth for this tank.

One interesting thing to note is that when I move this tank cross-country, the contents don't shift AT ALL. I said at. all. And I couldn't tell you why, either. I think it's a combination of well interlaced roots from the side crypts. (yes, those roots literally have started to span the entire tank even through the middle to the back.) And the heavy fluorite substrate which I love.

The plant life is good, I've got one crypt hanging out above the substrate, and it's kind of cloning itself, and i'm getting a bunch of mini plants out of that. I should eventually have that perfect row on each side.

Couldn't get the pictures to link.
