All i can say is WOWWWWW!!!!!! that has some of the most incredible looking inverts and plants i've seen in a tank for a while. I wish my tank looked close to as amazing as that looks.

Glad to see an update with photos!

You're making me re-think the scape in my own 12gal long. Especially with all the mosses you've got growing.

Thanks! It's a little messy at the moment. My collectoritis is in remission; I need to get some treatment ASAP.

What do you have in mind, Jake? I've been thinking of re-scaping the tank again. Trying to figure out the best way to attach Mini Pellia to the rocks..

3/20/12 - Moar Shrimps
Just a sneak peek at what's been brewing..

Wine Red





Black King Kong
Terrible picture, I know. I'll grab a better one when I can get the little dude to stay still for more than a millisecond.


Familiar Faces
Some old timers in the mix..



The CRS from above is hanging out on some Rose Moss I acquired from Jimko. Very legit seller.

I think I'm shooting for some Willow Moss (ordered) in my tank. Still toying with it.

Have you considered Super Glue Gel? That stuff is magical.

Love the shrimp pics. Really like your setup on this tank. I still need to figure out where i'm setting mine up so i can start planning it.


I'm lucky to live where I can ride year round!! I've got an '03 Z1000.

I've got some Willow Moss, but it's not looking too good right now. I've tried regular super glue and didn't really like the white stain it left upon contact with water. Does the gel do the same?

Are you thinking a Speed Triple? Or 675, perhaps? Those are sweet.

Thanks! Do you have any idea how you're going to stock it? I wish I lived in CA. The riding season is adequate here but it gets super hot during the middle summer months. Those Z1000s are badass.

Lots of folks use Super Glue Gel to attach moss to wood and such. Also nice for Anubias sp. and Java Ferns.

It's aquarium-safe and will even harden under water.

And about bikes... what is it with shrimp nerds and their crotch rockets? I recently swapped my Ducati 1098 for an 1199. Weird. Does every shrimper have a bike?

Does the gel leave a white stain on the wood?

1199?! I want that so badly. Pics?! You must be selling those veggie sticks at every street corner to buy that beast!
