Blue crays got here safe and sound- even sent a bonus cray so I have 13 Juveniles. Drip acclimated for 3-4 hours to be safe (they were expensive...) and now they are in the tank!
They are so freakin awesome that I will be very sad if I can't get them to do well and breed...
Cherry shrimp have no personality... These little guys are all personality! And they love to brawl each other. Acclimating them was like watching a cage match...
Most of mine are the size of a cherry shrimp!

I just bought 12 Cambarellus Diminutus (dwarf blue crayfish)... So excited!
I don't care if they turn brown, I just wanted the smallest species! I do hope they stay blueish though.
I really want the CPOs as they are such an amazing orange! But I don't trust them... Regardless of what most people experience... 2 inch crayfish can do some damage! They may not, but they absolutely can...
1 inch blues? about half as much LOL

I always laugh at the mention of "traditional layout" because when I started planted aquariums, nobody was doing nice planted tanks other than Dutch style- and I had never actually seen one outside a magazine. They were relatively rare.
The most traditional layout was plastic plants! Now everyone is doing ADA style... When CO2 became commonplace, ADA style tanks took off in the US. Its been amazing to watch the ADA influence take over the majority of the hobby- though for good reason!
Im old LOL.

|exv152||It's not your traditional layout, but I like what you've done, you've got some interesting fish species, and I like the moss.|

A pic of my Farlowella! Almost died, was little when I got him... now he's doing great and has been for years!

|Simon_Stephen||this tank is one of my favorite tanks I've seen on this forum good job man|

You NAILED it with the fish swimming question- thats my new problem LOL. I have to, at least every 4-5 days, smush the moss together to tighten it up and make it so the fish can swim through. The Rummies really liked it smushed/passage open but the Neons prefer to go over the top or just under the anubias leaves so I may stop smushing lol.
BTW the shrimp are going bananas in that moss in the center!

|Mitashade||Wow, your moss has really exploded! Love the look of this now, very cool. Can they pass under the centre structure anywhere, or do they have to swim over?|

So after all my rummies got sick from the new ones (24 down to 6...), and I pulled them and switched to Neons... My damn chiller crapped out!
Of course in the summer... Of course when its hot... Tank got up to almost 85 degrees... Sure the fish can handle that BUT I've been keeping the temp super consistent and the Panda Corys seem to appreciate it! I am dropping the constant temp from 79 to 77 permanently now that the chiller kicks ass!
BUT I got lucky! There is a guy who does refrigeration 4 units down from my studio!!! A day and a half later- fixed! Working killer! He fixed the leak, put all new coolant in it and even made a quick check valve so it could be serviced in the future WITHOUT needing to take it all apart! All for $100! Awesome.
Wayyyy better than $700+ for a new 1/4 HP chiller... Good lord!
Hopefully I will get a reprieve from the summer drama here on out!

Pic of the Neons- center tank, zoom in if possible LOL... But they are way more blue than the pic shows. The pic looks washed out-

Thanks again everyone!
I pulled the Rummynose Tetras out today as the new ones I added to the school got sick and most died. I have trouble finding healthy ones locally so Im going to try Neon Tetras! The Rummies are in my 60 gallon hospital/trash tank... They all look great already- red past the gills!
My water is a bit high on the PH side of things but the LFS has the same exact water and their batch looked super healthy! Been there a couple weeks- none dead or sick in the tank.
They look amazing against the green and all are coloring up really well. The Roseate light makes them GLOW... very cool.
Rummies were always my favorite so its fun to see the Neons! The Rummies school and the neons shoal. Actually my Rummies got so fat and lazy they had stopped schooling all together and just sat in the cave to the left waiting for food... LOL
I love how small the neons are. My female rummies were like SAEs LOL.
I'll try to get a decent shot!
