There are a gazillion babies growing up in here.

It seems like lots of adults have moved on, but that's OK. Several still remain.

My girlfriend is preparing to take it home from college, so I actually won't see it anymore

Heh everything is settled. I like everything the way it is. It looks like mountains and green forests around them, so I'm super happy!

a hundred times.... I maybe change it around like 5 times max and roll with it.

It actually took longer to update, but I bring EXCITING updates.

There were two shrimp berried, and perhaps one has dropped her eggs, but one truly did give birth.

I know this is only a .5g, but I will let them breed out to the fullest extent. At any given time, I can only see a few shrimp, so it suggests there is a lot of hiding places. In order to photograph them, I did a feeding time photo shoot.

(Before feeding, note how many shrimp you see)

(The berried mama is yet to be done birthing. She has maybe 4 left to give off. Their eyes are huge!)

The numbers SEEM overpopulated, but the tank is super healthy and visibly it is NOT. Very confusing.

that is a nice looking light, on a nice looking tank. My wife seems to be OK with me buying a large tank (in fact we had a conversation about turing a non support wall into a big tank) but i really think i'm falling in love with nano tanks.
Nano tanks rule! I'd love to start a big rack for them. I know I'll do a wall of shrimp tanks some day

Thanks for the compliment. The only thing they overlooked was the on/off switch.

The logs only just sank, so they're still a little buoyant. I'll take a picture soon. I also purchased this light. Amazon.com: Solar Flare Micro Gooseneck 6700k Led Light: Pet Supplies
I'm super happy I found it. It *SHOULD* be perfect for this little tank.

I've put a few mosses in here, but not so many my girlfriend needs to worry about trimming.

Let's do the pimp club for sure. Jake is the man, bringing these tanks to us in full force. Your build was/is awesome, I've seen several others. I want in early on the list, #3 would be cool. I'm hoping to take mine slow and make it epic! Thanks pal, keep it up

the addiction continues...
