Here's a FTS:
Created the Tank Journal primarily as a means of tracking my progress towards growing out my POSO snails. Got them last summer at about a 1/4 inch long. They're now close to 1inch long. I've been feeding them primarily on spinach and zucchini as well as whatever aquarium plants I dump in there. They never seemed that big a fan of prepared foods although they've started eating spirulina sticks recently.
Hopefully they'll start breeding soon!
Awesome! Can't wait to see how this project progresses.
Received some Cardinal Shrimps today!! First time seeing them in real life and was amazed by how great they colored up almost immediately and how long their whiskers are!
A few pictures of the new shrimp:
Here's one hiding in a cave:
Here are my yellow shrimps during feeding time:
Snail feeding time... he looks like he's smiling!:
Love the way the POSOs move!
That's some nice shrimp and snails.
Less than a month after getting them, we've a berried Cardinal!!
They've been getting a bit more active and less shy the past few weeks. Not really sure what the difference was.
I'll post a picture of one if I can catch a good one! She's still pretty shy and hides most of the time!
But hurray to the first babies for this tank!
Here's a screen cap from a video that I took of the tank! We only have 5 cardinals in here so excited that we'll hopefully have a lot more!!
Trying to do the video here:
wow, those cardinals look great.
actually, your picture quality is pretty amazing. what kind of camera are you using?
also, how are your GBRs doing with your green neons? I always had trouble keeping GBR with such quick eaters.
Beautiful shots, congrats on the berries on a gorgeous shrimp.
Glad to hear that you like our pics!!
Depending on which you look at, they're taken either a Nikon D700 or a Canon 5D Mark II... Or... an iPhone :)
We haven't really noticed any issues with the GBRs. If anything they're the more aggressive feeders compared to the green neons who are actually quite timid at least in our tank.
And now we have two berried cardinals!!
The snails are actually probably a good quarter inch bigger than they were about a few months ago as well. Hopefully they'll be ready to breed soon as well!!
Here's a pic of one of the male cardinals!
