okay I lied I did add more stuff in the tank for some reason I went mad for crypts a few months ago and bought crypt nuri and cordata KR01. I really like my KR01 but it has black beard algae anyone now how to get rid of it? Everytime I look into my tank I hate looking at it. Should I try dosing a little hydrogen peroxide? Or is that bad for the shrimp?

also heres a picture of my 10g that was in the process of being set up last month. Like I said I took a plunge into the whole UGF thing thats been going on lately. I have to say the waters been super clear so far.

i see you just made one long UGF pipe, i too am going to be using an UGF in my new tank (hopefully itll get here by friday) but im thinking of going with a complete circle instead of just one long pipe with holes.

Anyone know which is better? i believe with the complete circuit you will not lose water pressure, but im not 100% sure.

I think either way will work. As the holes closer to the intake get clogged it will just draw more water from the holes farther away. I had the same question and that was the answer given to me :P. Makes sense.

Of course, making a completely circle will be easier to keep your matrix material confined.

Yeah either ones fine when I redo this tank I'm going to try a complete circuit to test it out for myself.

So since I moved most of the rilis to the 10g I got in more shrimp the other day from ohbaby714 let the party begin. When I looked in the tank I saw a few molts so I'm hoping some of the guys got lucky. Right now this tank has a few mothers, some babies, and some bee shrimp that are boring.

So any takers on wheather I should dose with H2O2 around the crypts that have BBA or should I uproot it and dip it in H2O2?

UPDATE 2/14

So heres a picture of what the 5g looks like the moss needs a trim and the glass needs to be cleaned. As I said before there are only a hand full of rilis left that are boat load of babies and 2 berried mother. And also a few bee shrimp are in here as well, while I was taking picture one of them kicked the can







Does anyone know was parameters these guys thrive in? I feel like I'm loosing one every 2 weeks....

the color has got a little bit better like i said on another thread its a long process of selective breeding

as of now i nothing has really changed besides more babies a bit more most and the dying off of my bee shrimp . probably they came from really hard water and my ph was around 6.5+ and plus i was doing massive top offs go figure.

the 5.5 now is different i ended up redoing the tank after transfering all the rilis over to the 10. the tank houses some clear blue rili males and a few A/S grade CRS. these guys are so interesting to watch, they're like walking candy canes.

the 10 now is what i refer to it as my shrimp sin city. it was crawling with babies now those guys are juvis and waiting for them to mature. okay so i added another filter so its running duel canisters, when i was adding the other filter i almost pulled out my UGF. i was so annoyed but it was my fault i get overzealous at times. i also added some flame moss and a modded breeder box. I'll post up some pictures within the day or two when i'm free.

Are the rilis with the green looking stuff on their backs saddled females?

Yup that thing is the saddle I just hoping they hold out on molting so they can have more babies.

any of you guys have green rilis in your tanks? I'm interested in seeing them in a group.
