Sorry I haven't updated this in so long!

I keep forgetting to. Well I did a little change up of where certain things are.

The moss is doing pretty well. It is filling in nice on the log, on the rock in the front. It is even starting t to grow from the filter outflow. So I'm just waiting for this to become moss heaven.

My CPOs mated. But I'm afraid the mate didn't go fruitfully. I have yet to see eggs. But I do have pictures of a rarely documented thing

And a recent FTS. Not sure if it looks too different.

And I'm worried about these guys here. But they're cute as the dickens. Id love to stick some in my Fluval spec but I think the flow on low is too much

Hello dougolas! You commented on my 'help' thread.

The light was mentioned on the first page I think,

But it is a a $30 beamsworks light. It probably would only effectively work for 'long' tanks. They're really nice for this tank. Somewhatshocked has one on his tank.

Yep they're H. Formosa! I hope they do well. I'd actually rather have them than my Crays. So my Crays better watch out.

Sorry didn't see it was mentioned. Its actually Douglas which no one calls me. It looks great for 30 dollars. Most of my tanks are long as I have inverts in them all except one. Did you get them off ebay, Amazon, or direct.

Heh thanks for the correction.

It does look nice in my opinion too.

I got it off topdogsellers on no ebay links allowed The shipping was even free. Scary good deal and he has plenty.

Depending on the length you'll only get low-medium light out of these units

Thanks very much! I'll continue to update this.

But I'd love some opinions.. I would consider selling my crays as they aren't my favorite members of the tank, but I wonder if I could do a more peaceful tank without them?

What do you all think?

i had 3 cpo's at one point, they fought alot (1 male 2 female). I kept them separate from other inverts, while my buddy has them with a thriving 29g cherry shrimp colony. His CPO's are breeding too, so he is getting a fair amount of them

Idk. I'd love to do other things with this tank. I would be worried about my shipping skills. Hmmmmm.

If someone would like to give me a reasonable offer for a breeding pair, I'd ship to them! I'll think about a for sale thread.

An update:

Well I left for thanksgiving break, nervous about leaving the tank with no lights other than window light and not much food, but five days later I find not only did I not lose anything, I have a new member of the tank greeting me

That it is! I'm excited. I was going to put a filter cover on the intakes, but I guess I don't need to. I watched the baby swim near it with little difficulty.
