Shrimp can definitely hard to see, lil buggers are great at hiding. Guess that goes with being the low man on the totem pole in the food chain @.@

Yeah. It's ok. You would think they might stink, but they don't.

Anyways. I do think they need to hide as they are defenseless. I wish over time they learned I'm not going to hurt them tho :P

mine don't have any tank mates and they run around like crazy... from top to bottom...

that said i'm getting them 'friends' but TINY ones...

love the rocks and stuff looks great... my tank is just a rock and plants.. not much room for anything else ... but i do have a 'shrimp arch' over their tubes .. sort of just 'happened' then i made it more formal (could be why they breed so much) LOL

looks great...

any tricks to moving a tank.. in the fall i have to send my daughter off with one.

I always forget to take pictures of my crazy methods.

Longer tanks are harder to move than taller tanks.

My advice is drain 60% of the water or more, plastic wrap the top, plastic wrap the HoB filter(water still in it) and plastic wrap the lid onto the tank if there is one.

Wrap a towel around whatever you are transporting, then put it in some type of box/bin. I do Sterlite containers. They work well for me.

I'm always amazed at how well my Fluval spec transports. If I was going to permanently travel in my life and never own a place for more than a few months at a time, all my tanks would be specs.

Here's a pic of how I move my spec + my 1gal tank. They both go in there.

This is a fun little setup. I haven't checked out this journal thread in a while. What kind of stone is that?

Well thanks for checking in!

I believe it is sandstone. Bartohog collects it from a mountain in Colorado I believe? Err that might not be the right state. I believe I talk about it in my first post to the second page. Somewhere in there.

I do agree. I spend a lot of time watching this daily

Nice!! Thanks very much. The roots are hard to maintain. Their needles make a mess, but it is worth it.

Lol thanks, dude.

My crayfish molted in front of me yesterday. I was on my computer and missed it.

I didn't miss her flipping out after. She was backpedaling through the water white as a ghost. I have a picture of it when it just happened.

Seeing as she is hurt, I'll be paying close attention.

Wonder how long it'll take her to grow her claws back, any idea?

Great question.. Wish I knew. It seems like her antennae are finally growing more with each molt. I haven't been able to fully inspect her tho yet. I'll update with her status this mornin as she was hiding while soft.

Not that she needs to. The shrimp don't hide anymore. There are no predators. And the fish don't even nip at legs
