Another Berried


Since my tank has two colors of shrimps, I don't know what the babies will look like... others said if they cross-bred then the color would be tan...

SaltyNC My DHG came from Petsmart, too. I like the video. The music made me chuckle.

enyong112 Thanks guys, I just bought these DHG at petsmart, they are topfin brand... I just read Frank's journal and followed the basics, e.g water changes using RODI water...

Will you keep it shrimp and otos or be adding any additional fish?
I'm just thinking of letting things be and wait, I don't want to throw things out of balance, not sure if trimming would do so, but I just don't want to mess things up right now...

For Fauna, I think these would do right now, not sure if the filter can handle more...

garloki72 It seems like your doing a great job! And ditto on the quote "little is a whole lot better than none"! Hope your oto gets better!

Termato Wow that is awesome to see your Dwarf Hair Grass growing that well. I just got some new ones in today and I'm really hoping I have similar results. I still have to wait another few days until I get my lights though.

Those runners are really growing in!

Lovely tank and nice job!
