WOAH! It's been a hot minute since I've posted in this thread.
But I've finally got the urge to get it going again. Excitement. And buckets of substrate, plants, new lights. All the fun things.

Glad to see you made the move safely, even the stow away amano.
This will be helpful as I'm thinking of getting a similar tank.

|somewhatshocked||Ordered a couple new fixtures. Stay tuned!|

One of my cheap LED fixtures is biting the bullet. Lots of sizzling sounds when I try to turn it on, so I'm tossing it until I can do some fancy work on it or get a new adapter and such.
Anyone have ideas on what I should run instead of these two? I could always do a daylight CFL in a dome - and may do that for the short term - but I'm looking for something more permanent. Please make aesthetically pleasing recommendations, folks. Keep in mind that this is an expensive and rimless tank, so nothing that covers the top of the tank.
Leaning toward a 12" Wavepoint fixture and plan to use the same on the bowfront in my signature.

Thought I'd post a quick update as I recover from moving 500 miles and bringing all my tanks.
The 45-F survived intact. Replanted everything to thin out the crypts and replaced all the Christmas Moss, so I won't have to trim it for a while.
But here's the kicker: When I flooded the tank? A giant Amano Shrimp crawled out of the middle of the wood and started pecking around like it hadn't been in a tank without water for FOUR DAYS. Crazy.

It's Christmas Moss.
Doesn't matter how they're fed, really. They always go for the food. I never really have leftovers and rarely have to clean food up. If you have enough livestock in the tank and only feed what they can eat in an hour, you won't run into issues of waste.

Just thought I'd share a few photos that detail the difference in whites between my PRLs and CBS:
Almost amber compared to the stark white of the Reds.
Notice the black legs of the CBS? Have been working on that since 2011. Most frustrating thing to breed for - ever - in shrimp, in my experience.
Also, I need to clean the glass like woah in the 45-F!

|somewhatshocked||Too many berried females aside... added two Horned Nerites from another tank and they've cleaned the algae-spotted glass of this tank in less than 24 hours. Now I remember why I love these little snails.|

Great. Now that I've moved a bunch of CBS into the 45-F, half of them are berried. And by half, I mean easily fifteen shrimp.
Time to start ANOTHER tank up? Goodness gracious.

Moved all adult and juvenile PRLs from this tank to a 20L to make room for all the CBS from my 12gal long. Also added a few Amano Shrimp.
Really excited to finally have a bunch of my high-grade CBS within view while working all day.
|08-17-2013 12:18 AM|
|somewhatshocked||Reached a decision today. Planning to move the PRLs in this tank to one of my others. Once that's done, I'll be moving most of my CBS to this tank so I can redo my 12gal.|
