Awesome, I'll send you a PM once I get cycled which should be pretty soon with the mature filter media I'm using. I'm unsure how much amonia this organic soil is going to put out though so it will be interesting.

Also in Purdue area

I'm in West Lafayette, I have a couple planted tanks though nothing large.
I have a 10 Gallon with a sand substrate that has Wysteria, Amazon Swords and a Java Fern that's doing pretty well where my Betta lives with a few zebra nerite snails and some Malaysian trumpet snails.

I also recently setup a 2.5 gallon using the Walstad method as a bit of an experiment to see if I could have some luck getting some dwarf baby tears to carpet the bottom. I'll be hopefully tracking down some shrimp locally to put in it in a couple weeks.

chrismilelr21 I am picking it up Saturday the 29th, so it will be a week or two for me to cycle it completely. Maybe less as i will be using filters from my established tanks. I am starting to get overloaded on Molly fry and the 10 gallon wont hold the 20 or so my lyretail had the other day. SO they are held up in a homemade acrylic minitank inside the 75 gallon with java moss and a air stone. So if you want any Molly fry let me know lol. I think I have 6-8 red/black platties as well. My endlers haven't bred yet, i think once they get in a planted 55, they will take off.

82nd_Airborne Sounds good. Let me know when you get that tank up and running, my yellows are still going crazy. I have a bunch of shrimplets/juvies that would be perfect for stocking. I'll try to get a couple pics and throw them up here.

chrismilelr21 I am not to worried about them interbreeding. I have fish mixed in with them so even if they did, I would never see them grow to adult. They'd all get eaten. But I am looking to set up anther 55 gallon so I will want the yellows for that. I will give you a yell when I get it set up and ready to stock. It will be a few weeks to get the cycle. But it will go fast since I have other tanks up and cycled already.

82nd_Airborne If you mix yellow and reds, you get wild coloration I havent really thought about price yet on the yellows, but probably $2-3.

jccaclimber If you mix RCS and yellows in the same tank you end up with brown transparent shrimp.
09-14-2012 02:58 PM
chrismilelr21 I have a 10 gal with a couple RCS. I got 10 a while back and only 2 survived but they are doing well. I keep Edlers with them. I would love to come check out the yellow's and add them to my 10 gal. What are you asking for them? I would also be interested in the dwarf hair grass.
09-13-2012 09:39 PM
jccaclimber If your yellows look good I may be interested in trading some plants or cherries, or RO water.

82nd_Airborne Well hello everyone. I havent looked at this thread in a while, but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that has tanks at Purdue. I currently have 3 tanks, a 20L, 5.5 gallon and a 3 gallon. I have RCS/PFR in the 5.5 and Yellow shrimp in the 3 gallon. I'm trying to get a breeding colony of CBS going in my 20L along with some micro rasbora. I can't think of all my plants, but dwarf hairgrass, amazon frogbit, java fern, fire/taiwan/java moss, various stems, and bronze wendtti crypts are some of what I have. If anyone is looking for some yellow shrimp, my 3 gallon is just about over run, let me know. I've actually talked to Aquarium World about selling them some. I also have what I think is giant duckweed in my 3 gallon, it looks good and populates fast, if anyone wants a handful, let me know.

I have moved to Ohio.

Howdy. Its cool to find people from around here. I am totally surprised there is not an aquarium club up here. The one in Indy seems well put together though. Just can't find the time to drive all the way down there for meets and things.
