Put them in an established 20 gallon probably. I want to put all the snowballs and cpo's in there.

2 shrimp died on the way home, probably would have lived if I restarted the tank, but I fell asleep. I think they were either propiniqua or orange sakuras which would be ahhh crap not the rest of my sakuras lol.

I havent been able to find some of my oebt, but that's probably just cause they're blue and really good at hiding.

Bananariot Last set of pictures of the tank before I shut it down. Well there will be pictures of the move but for now its the last shots of the tank unless I get some awesome angles in the next few days.

RIP 10 Gallon x2, 1's already down

CPO made himself king of the 10 gallon, killed off most of the fish and has the female in hiding under the driftwood

BTOE


OEBT-very dark in the background. Propiniqua in the foreground, strange cherry on the right....I like it though with the vertical red stripe


BTOE + malawa


OEBT + assassin snail


OEBT's, Snowballs, Babaulti, etc.


OEBT, Orange Sakura, Propiniqua, Cherry, Snowball, Rili
BLANCHED SPINACH TIME


More Propiniqua, Shame they can't reproduce in freshwater. So orange compared to the neo versions.


Weird Cherry- Red stripe down its back

Since it's gonna be a OEBT tank and BTOE, I think I'm going straight akadama. They'll stand out well in a brown substrate

Also, are you sure your shrimp don't like the Shirakura? Or don't realize it's food? How long did you leave it in there before taking it out?
I leave them in for like 1-2 days, they just leave it alone or barely touch it. Sad.

Is there any advantage to FSS?

Bananariot More Pictures! lol. New Shrimps and old shrimps trying out my blanched spinach, they seem to like this the most out of all the food I give them.

No one likes shirakura Wasted my money.

Jimko's Rilis and BTOE!!!





OEBT Blonde Tigers from Darkestsky ( I don't get what cloudy OEBTs look like so I hope these guys aren't. They all seem very active and have looked like this for 2 weeks now)


BTOE hidden in the middle lol camo, Blondes, Rilis


Golden Bees from Greenfish, Mord, Speedie! Orange Sakuras from Darkestsky!





Snowballs, Cherries, Orange Sunkist, Red Crystals, Babaulti, Rili? (musta escaped), Golden (musta escaped)



These are all the pictures for now, another shipment of real nice OEBT coming on Wednesday. Mixing with blondes but will be separated when I get home.

School ends in a week!

Ordered my 12 gallon long!



Going diy ugf on the 12 long and another 10 gallon. 12 long will be powered by canister, while 10 gal is going to be powered by HOB or Powerhead.

I have a selection of soils to buy...
azoo plant grow
mr. aqua soil
akadama
FSS

What should I get for a.....
12 gallon tiger tank, oebt + btoe?
10 gallon crystal tank?

I don't know if OEBT and BTOE need the buffering capabilities but I figured i'd give them akadama and then maybe a layer of azoo or mr. aqua?

I figured for the crystal tank I'd do something similar
