chad320 Yeah, wow Amy! It isnt very often that you see big HeALTHY fish like that. They always seem to be beat up with hole in the head disease. Nice job, this tank is awesome! Do the pirannas keep the vals mowed down or do you do that?

SkyGrl LMAO! how did i not see these posts! lol i have been lacking in the lurking department!

a small update.. (no pics sorry) my christmas moss is growing out of control! with that extra light it expanding daily! i have given extra large clumps away to two ppl already. i have a christmas moss farm growing!

and my hygrophilia corymbrosa has sprouted at least 6 new leaves and tonnes of roots!!

onto other news, we have moved the 140 gallon. added the caribe (was in a 25 gallon growout) and he is loving the 140. he has settled in well and is scooting around. also bought 3 swords (Echinodorus "red special) i do have pics of the new swords and of the 140 gallon.



all the boys hanging out

the nice thing about this tank move is that we took off the backround and you can watch them from the front or back, as its a room divider. ill take some more pics of the room and you guys can sorta get an idea.

the 3 tanks will be built into a wall that will encase all 3 tanks and have a door for an entrance.

well im done lurking for today

chad320 I agree with Sara and Damon, it lurks like H. corymbosa. I also agree that your Scarlet badass could be the culprit for the slow down in your shrimp breeding. Hypolurkically, speaking of course.

sewingalot That one plant looks like hygrophilia corymbrosa, but I am not sure. Maybe others will chime in? Nice on the water etching. I have the same issue. After awhile, it never comes clean. :/ Lovely looking tank, Amy!

haha... enjoy my awesome commentary.. no smack talk!

SkyGrl mine did eat some shrimp and ill find a dead one everyonce and a while but i had well over 200 shrimp in the tank and even with 5 scarlets they couldnt keep up to the breeding. as long as you have moss and spots that the scarlets cant get at you will have shrimp. it matters when you keep them well fed too.

the tank has been running since november is of 2010. so just over a year. i have not put much time into it. plus we did a move last june so it started over again basically. i had started the filter on a breeder tank before i had this tank set up. the filter has been running for 2 years. it was a great way to set up this tank. no waiting for cycling

i think i will be doing that for the cube tank too. so easy.

Awesome growth Sky. You know what's funny, I had a thread asking about Scarlet Badis as I LOVE THEM. But I was gonna put them with Shrimps, and everyone says that they will eat those baby shrimps, specially I got like 100 more baby shrimps.

How long has this tank been running?
