Nice. I think the riccia should stay! And yes, those red cherries are at least 5 times redder than my reddest ones!

thanks all on your compliments on my shrimps' redness. i was very pleased when i saw them. but they arent all that red. the 2 you look the most at are the ones that stick out the most, the redest. they are 2 of my 3 females. the third is nicely colored too, but not quite as much. some of the younger males are almost clear, but they are still young so they should color up more. all in all, yeah, they are pretty amazing. i hope they do well in the tank.

well i have shrimp, they help. plus before it was in here, it was in a terrarium for monthes. so all the GSA that used to dot its older leaves died off. hopefully i can keep it algae free though, but if it ever starts to get to algaefied, i plan on putting it back in the terrarium for a while for the algae to die (and plant to grow even more).

well im certainly considering the riccia, thats why its in there. but i want to see how it will grow along with the other plants. im a big fan of riccia, since i tried it the first time, i had some in every tank; but if it doesnt fit in well, **** it.
thanks about the shimp.
these are pretty special. they arent as see-through as most RCS, they are more solid colored, like CRS.

Hey Marko are those the shrimp you got from me? If so, the young females are spotty and will get closer to a solid red like the others as they get older. The males will stay clear with red strips they aren't as colorful but a necessary evil for a breeding colony and they will never turn red.

If you haven't already done so I would also pick up a food high in calcium which is what I'd treat mine to a few times a week.

This is what I use.

Cube looks good!

yeah those are your shrimp. and even if they dont get any redder, i am extremely happy with them. you have really nice stock.
i feed them the hikari shrimp food and algae wafers, it should hopefully be enough.

my ph is low though, do you think i should add some baking soda or put a tiny bit of crushed coral to get it to 6.5 or so?

thanks, but my CO2 is low. i tried adding another bottle, ill see how that works.

Thanks. I'm glad your enjoying them. I think you might be able to get by with a lower PH if you are feeding them calcium rich foods. Most websites I've seen range between a 6-8. I keep them between 6.5 and 7.1 at a temp of 78-80 degrees.

Here's a link with general information.

The plants you gave me are doing great, thanks again.
