I had a shrimp tank before and it was messy especially with so many shrimp doing their 'business'.

I've never dealt with such small tank so I dont know how hard it would be to clean the gravel without disturbing everything?

This tank isn't bad to clean. You do not disturb the substrate by vacuuming it. You don't clean the substrate at all. I would recommend a small magnet cleaner to use on the glass at the substrate line where all tanks tend to form a ring build up. The glass scratches so use a soft piece of cloth on the magnet inside and outside. I do recommend a nerite snail or Otto cat to help with cleaning algae.

New life for EBI #1 lower grade blacks

I nixed getting any new shrimp so now I don't need to use this tank for quarantine. I began moving the lower grade blacks from my second EBI to my first EBI.

I took out the cool little piece of wood from this tank. I may add it back later but since I moved things around it looked out of place.




The snails have been busy since I removed the red crystals so I have added an assassin to cut that population down.

Yes, yes I guess it's time for the 40 to have it's own thread

Yes the water has cleared up really nice now. It was WAY to many shrimp for the EBI. I honestly had no idea there were that many of them, they stayed hidden most of the time. I mean I knew there too many but I guessed like maybe 50-60. They had stopped breeding the smallest shrimp I found in there were about half grown.

Nikki is supposed to send me some blacks so I will quarantine those in the empty EBI. Once that is over I will split the blacks up into higher grades and lesser grades between the two EBI's.

If I could find a good home for my axolotls I could set the blacks up in a matching 40 B.
