Yeah when I first started my cherry tanks were way more forest like than they are now. For some reason I like clean and tidy tank where I can see my shrimp. I'll most likely add more driftwood when the new moss that I got grows out more.

Ohhh so thats you, I thought you were some other person. Well thanks a bunch man the shrimp really like it a lot as you can tell.

Where are you getting them from?

Update 10/6

Hey guys sorry for not updating school and work have been kicking my ass. Todays been a crappy and not very productive one at that. In what way can I feel that I've done something other than sneeze my ass off and study. Well I can sneek away from Headaches R' US for a bit and check on the shrimp. Duhh

As well all know Shrimptank-itis can happen and so it did. I ended up taking another 5 gallon off of gnod hands again. Thanks dude! Nothing like helping another person getting rid of a tank and using it to do your evil bidding. Enough of mad scientist talk, I just set it up like a regular tank no fancy UGF this time.

Fluval Stratum CHECK
Old Seeded Filter Floss CHECK
Marina HOB CHECK
Heater Check
Flame Moss CHECK

All I needed is a light and for the tank to cycle. I've already added some shrimp food, dirty sponge water, and the heater set at 75ish*. Hopefully thats enough to jump start some bacteria growth. Right now the other 5 gallons sharing some light via a long piece thats placed verticle between the 2 tanks. I'm was at the local petland and I spot the betta section and I see an L.E.D clip on light from Deep Blue.

Here are the specs:
12 1/4 Watt LEDs
2 Actubuc Blue
10 10,000k White
3 Watt Total Output

The clip on light comes out to 35$. I haven't read up on the whole suitable light for a tank what do you guys think?

Cull Tank





Madhouse
Blues and CRS

UPDATE 11/29

Been super busy with school and never anytime to take pictures. Partly because I'm lazy. I've really have taken a liking to CRS and CBS something about them, then again I've alway wanted CBS but was turned off by the quote on quote water sensitive. Anyway here are the tanks they have gone through some change here and there more so the newer 5G. I basically added new moss, new rilis, some CRS, and CBS. sorry its blurry was using my phone ENJOY!

10G

Nothing yet remember that mother that was crazy green she turned out to be blue. I was sort of dissapointed but whatever.

Although my 10G has a bunch greens swimming around, they have potential. I've been letting the new batch of rilis get use to the new parameters.

How are the shrimp any babies yet?

Ah that sucks. Hopefully the babies stay green.


None yet. I picked up a nice dark blue rili out in LI today. Like, darker than a blue velvet.
