I am totally digging my new crypts. Purple and green! PERFECT! Grow my planties, grow! Looking forward to getting my ferts kit in the mail. I think my BGA issue is coming from my redonkulously low nitrates level. ><
Kinda bummed hospital stuff ate my oto and snail fund (Plants too.
), but I guess I can't care for my tank if I croak.
My assassins and shrimps have been loving the frogbit. The assassins are slowly learning to paraglide to their prey, then CRACK! land on it! Definitely worth it and the water surface is way clearer. I still run the airstone at night, just because it can only help.
My poor tiniest male shrimp. I think I'm going to name him the Shrimp currently known as Prince, because he just wants to mate SO BAD. Maybe if you learned to play the guitar, lil dude. Though, it seems all but one mama are berried again. Finding baby shrimp is an exercise in zen. The more I look for them, the less I see. When I stop and just /watch/... suddenly, there they are! I am amazed at how much personality these shrimp have. They all seem to do their own thing. Thanks, little dudes, for making life more awesome.
The habrosus bros... still thoroughly whipped by the shrimp. it's hilarious to see a baby shrimp atop a pellet of food while a catfish looks on going 'No, it's cool man... you first.'
