Phoenix-cry Thanks! I got them from a friend who has bred so many he's using them as feeders!!

I got that pellia for free at a pet shop, it was looking sad and now it's all happy, I just love it!

Phoenix-cry My shrimp are way camera shy. Here's how the tank is growing.

Here's one of the new fish that are living in here with my shrimp. They are Tiger Endlers Livebearers.

Phoenix-cry the algae is all gone and the plants look great! giggle.

ClPat Wow that sucks...but hopefully the CRS will start breeding again. And don't feel embarassed, no one makes no mistakes. At least now you know to watch your excel dosing carefully. Did you at least get rid of the algae? Anyways, great tank and journal.

Phoenix-cry As embarassed as I am the babies were all killed...accidently by me. I had this strange algae in the picotope and thought that an overdose of excel would take care of it. did, but all the babies are gone now even though the adults made it. So now I'm waiting for them to breed again.

equi_design I just wanted to say I enjoyed your journal. How are the baby shrimps coming along?

Thanks for the great photos & inspiration. (And my "zoo" chores take about an hour each morning too. Dogs, birds, fish, hedgie & orchids)
