HolyAngel thanks! you should check my 20long thread as thats where the shrimp moved to

Currently im not selling any of my shrimp save for PFR culls.

The crs/cbs I have will be involved in an ongoing breeding project for the foreseeable future. I want a couple hundred and a few generations in first before I really start selling any of those, save for maybe culls but yeah, I don't have any of those yet.

NEM0 Thanks for your posts, I very new at this and am learning a lot. I've recently bought a 5 gallon Ecopico that I'm thinking about making into a Iwagumi shrimp tank in my office. Do you sell your shrimp? I have a long way to go before I'm ready for shrimp but was just wondering.

Not a single case of nipping or chasing ever since they were added. The betta actually seems happier now that he's not by himself. He's pretty laid back though and will rarely even flare up in front a mirror, so that could have something to do with it.. But that's the experience so far in the last 3.5 weeks of having them. ^^
Awesome, thanks for the reply! That's kind of what I was looking for. Not sure what species, as I think my guy would like to swim mid level with some of the more active cories, as he does prefer to be on the bottom within the plants sometimes, so I am not sure.

I think mine will react the same, he is relatively calm from everything I could see so far; flares a little bit at his reflection but that's about it. Going to add some shrimp though first to see how friendly he is.

PlantedHobbyist I am curious as to how those Cory's are doing with the Betta. Am thinking of picking some up myself! How are they doing together? Which species is that as well, looking for some schooling comments with them in the same tank as the Betta.

Thanks

HolyAngel New Additions!


Will try and get an updated FTS, but I swear it looks pretty much exactly the same, the plants have grown quite a bit.. and who knew you could grow R. Inundatus in low light with no co2? Go figure ;P

Betta Haven!

Well the shrimp haven has been closed in light of needing a bigger tank for these breeding projects I have.

It is now my fiancee's tank and home to her betta thats been living in a 2gal quarantine tank for the last month or so.


She actually picked out the plants from all that I have and scaped it herself, apparently me doing it 5 or 6 times in front of her finally rubbed off on her :P

And here he is, Pongo

HolyAngel Yeah 2012.. I would but this tank is sitting next to my monitor on my glass computer desk as that's the only place I have for it.. I don't think it'll support a 20 long lol I'm not even sure a 10 gal would work.. Plus I'd have to get more substrate and hope the tank doesn't cycle or anything and has enough microfauna.. I'd just rather wait it out for now.
Come April though it's on! Ill be dedicating my custom 15 gallon to these shrimp.. Possibly among other tanks as well ^^

shrimpnmoss April? You mean 2012? What about subdividing a 20g long? You can pretty much put everything over...and you'll still only have one tank...hehehe...

HolyAngel I apologize for my only camera being a phone and I not having any camera skills :p

Here's kind of a random video of all of it that gives justice to the shrimp and what they really look like since it's usually at least slightly blurry in the pic..
