I added two sponge filters for added filtration and circulation. new FTS:


Also had my first tank related shrimp death today. lost one of the male chocolate shrimp. two males left. as long as there is at least one male left, my shrimp should be ok. chocolate shrimplets are growing. the deceased male had trouble molting - likely because of living in sub-optimal water conditions. the soft acidic water may have something to do with it. I'm recording pHs of close to 6pH.

The crystals are really nice and white. I can't wait until they start breeding. i wonder what i will get. I have SSS crystal reds and mischling CBS and CRS. I could get anything.
