diwu13 Want me to take a picture of the plants and you can decide if you want to trade?

I think a small priority box is pretty popular. the 6x6x7 one.

Yea! I'm in the process of renovating it a little each day because of shrimp swarms lol, the whole left corner is rotala now

Pretty much anything, my plant collection is pretty small (and a 55g can fit a lot of plants!)..plus I gotta go to the post office tomorrow and see what size box I'll need for shipping shrimps.

dragonsong93 Been away from the forums a while, but the shrimp are still breeding and growing like crazy! I actually have plans for a 55g tank. ALSO I will be thinning off some CBS and maybe a few CRS shrimplets soon and I'm willing to trade some of them for low to medium light plants so if anyone's interested pm me.

Major update pix
There's a bit of an aponogeton takeover going on right now, lol

Frogbit, salvinia, riccia mat, and pothos plants


And the shrimp, I seriously have to get a pic of feeding time soon because they all just come out of I don't even know where...but it's an epic swarm! Maybe tomorrow.








Super tiny newborn shrimplet!


And my HUGE ugly CRS that I've had since the first batch, she still has pretty babies though! Just never got the color back from being shipped I guess.

diwu13 Wish I had a shrimplet invasion... looking great though Stacy

DesmondTheMoonBear Oh wow, nice. Wish I had a CRS/CBS shrimplet invasion instead of a RCS one, lol. Excited to see how my 6 CRS/CBS do though...I'm not expecting a lot though with my rock water.

Have you given a canister filter more thought?
Thanks!

As for the canister, I'm looking at either a Finnex PX 360 or a Mini-Rapids right now. Dunno which one is better though.

dragonsong93 Picture Updates! I don't even know how many shrimp there are anymore, I see new little shrimplets everyday...there could be 15 or 20 more...
Here's what the tank currently looks like, took the HC out of the right corner and replaced it with a riccia-covered rock but not much else has changed.







Berries & shrimplets


In the veeery center there's a lil black shrimplet

2 little ones

One of the biggest ones

dragonsong93 So I've been thinking of replacing the filter, to give me some more planting space in the back, what's the best nano canister filter guys??

Also had another litter of shrimplets appear yesterday and a new berried shrimp today! The previous ones are getting big and their white looks awesome, I can see them across the room from the tank! The OEBT's are also getting their blues in so I'll have to update on everyone soon with some pix.

Making sure nothing looked 'unusual' about it...but it's not all white inside like if it was a disease or anything. I'm hoping that he's got some shrimplets somewhere in the tank

dragonsong93 Thanks everyone!!

There's some sad news today though, checked on the tank to find this one breathing heavily, then dead 15 minutes later. None of the other shrimp are distressed and everything's fine, but I did a 10% waterchange just to be safe.

One of the nicest looking ones I had, but also the oldest, so maybe that was the cause
RIP

Thark I like your tank. Congrats on the little shrimp, they look very exciting.

diwu13 Dang! Those shrimpies colored up super nicely! I remember when you first got them they were splotchy clear! Now look at those !
