Ideas for my 1/2 5 gallon

I don't want to use CO2....
Also filtration is gonna be interesting to try and figure out....I don't want to shell out for another canister but a shallow tank like that with double HOB?...Its gonna be annoying cause I dont like how the flow dents the substrate.
Corydoras + Shrimp tank? I was planning on ordering some OEBT + BTOE.......
Maybe I should put neos in the corydoras tank before I put any caridinas in just to see how they live? lol

P.S. Have you checked out any of the other "half" tanks that Glass Cages (I know people have tons of opinions about the company - I'm merely talking about the sizes of tanks) makes?
I'm thinking about copycatting you and picking up a 1/2 15gal - 24x12.5x6 (8gal) or 1/2 29gal - 30x12.5x6 (10gal).

When are you going up to college? Should be coming up! Hope your shrimp make the trip fine

Looking really nice.
And great find on the frag tank. Can't wait to see how that turns out. Be sure to start a journal for it.

Blue Rilis (hopefully im gettin them in tomorrow)
OEBT x BTOE hybrids if my plan for school is successful and goes into fruition lol.

1. Gravel vacced
2. Pick up uneaten food
3. Used a fan so the temp climbs to 80
1. Used scape rocks pushing gH up to 14
2. fed every other day
3. Used co2
4. Used Ferts
Though I have noticed more babies since the lack of CO2, also the same time I pulled out rocks. So either the co2 or the removal of gh seeping rocks caused a higher survivability in the babies. I think it's the rocks personally. Light is so high, plants use CO2 like mad so the co2 indicator was never lighter than dark green.
Dude you should totally come pick some up next time barring any disaster if the babies grow up. I'll let you know. Ironically my school is also called SBU but it's in the most western part of NY lol

This the iPhone macro lens?
And I know I asked you this during D3 already lol. So you definitely think TT are super hardy? Like... could I throw them in my tank you think? (Aw fudge.. just remembered you're going back to school. When's the next time you think you'll be at SBU? Might stop by, see some friends, and pick up some TT's )

B/C Grade Tank
B/C grade 3 gallon long now shootin babies out like crazy too, I got about 30 babies in there. Tank is only 2 weeks old but they're all alive and kicking. Used Seachem product like TSS to bypass cycling with success
I love these low grades, thinking about getting more as soon as I settle down in September for school

So I pulled out the rocks from the scape because they were severely altering my water conditions. My TDS was always 250 something and the GH was hitting heights of 13-15.
Post pulling out the rocks my gH has lowered and I'm now seeing lots of baby TT's running all over the place.
I added Ottos into the tank to help with algae, since I'm putting the light directly on the tank. However, I'm raising the lights time come when I go back to college and get a stand for the whole setup.
$4 Macro lens is yielding moderate results, can't wait to get a real camera, gonna have to wait till Christmas.
Also there's around 30 babies in a 3 gallon long B/C grade tank for CRS. Excited.
zoomed out view, tank looks ugly atm with the lack of anything on the right side as MM is slow to fill in and I just added H. Japan. The absence of rocks leaves a void of emptiness there. Might have to order some driftwood now xD
You know how the saying goes, didn't happen unless there are pics....Baby TT's!
A 3rd baby that's bigger, I have more in the tank but they're too far for my macro lens
The berrying continues, I have about 7-8 berried mamas right now out of 20 total shrimp. Hardiest Caridinas I've cared for up to date.
The ones from Ohbaby are hitting maturity to join Chad's
Baby Fire Red, gonna have to start culling these guys or take em out all together, some look like rili and PFR washes cause I mixed them
Otto Says Hello, where's my screentime
PFR Rili Mix?
He's a mutt but I let him stay cause he's on of my favorites, his eyes stay white. Even after he molts
Rili Mama, with her eggs. You can see the eyes.

If you're brave enough, you should derim it.
