I had to do extensive research to find mine. As far as I know, somewhatshocked was the first person to have it. I loved it. So I did a lot of research and learned that an aquarium dealer named allpet sells DBP products relatively cheaply.

I do believe Deep Blue Professional produces and sells their products through distributors. Like it is for many companies in America, I'm sure that is an effective way of getting their product out. They may have some outlet in which you can purchase their products from, but my research was to find the most cost effective equipment possible. I break down my expenditures on the first page.

The tank was the cheapest I could find anywhere.

Yeah. They're really neat. Nearly the dimensions of a 10g tank cut in half haha.

They had just gone on amazon when I found them but they didn't ship to PO boxes so it was down to another seller.

Female cray doesn't look great. She's gone from orange to almost yellow in a few days. She's eating, but she looks weak and fears the shrimp.

Update: The Salvinia Minima took off. I just did a major thinning of it. It reproduces so fast for its size.

The cray is doing better for sure.. She has a weird thing going on with what looks like gills outside of her body's shell.

The mosses are all doing well. I fall more in love with the mini Xmas moss every time I look at it lol.

I see a crazy amount of babies. Even though you can't necessarily see them, they're in every picture.

If they all make it to adulthood, I'll be needing to learn to sell and ship lol.

Looks incredible! The water lettuce kind of makes this for me, though the mosses look fantastic. And congratulations on baby shrimpies! Means you're doing something very right

That lil fella is one of them.

Thanks for your compliment! I'm glad I haven't taken the lettuce out then. It seems like most people like it .

These are the babies I'm talking about!

You can kinda see her injuries all in one. Missing a feeding claw, missing her antennae and the whitish things coming out of her side.

Seems as if my moss is flowering? I can't exactly tell what it is doing....... But it is neat looking.

The lines coming out of the Mini Xmas moss are attached to the stem of the moss.

There are little bulbs at the end of them.

So. Do you know what they are?

A little research told me I was very wrong for even thinking my moss was flowering. But it isn't 100% of the time wrong to call it a 'bloom'.

http://www.aquamoss.net/images/Moss-Sporophyte-02.jpg

This is a picture of a Sporophyte on some moss. Apparently, this is how moss spreads. A little more in depth view on moss reproduction. Some people may be curious, I knew I was.

The green leafy ground cover of mosses that we are familiar with is the haploid gametophyte. The gametophyte develops sex organs, a male antheridium and a female archegonium on the same or different plants. The antheridium produces flagellated sperm cells that swim to the egg cells in the archegonium. After fertilization, the zygote grows into a diploid sporophyte. The sporophyte consists of a foot, stalk, and capsule. It remains attached to the gametophyte. Cells in the capsule undergo meiosis and develop into haploid spores. When released, spores grow into gametophytes with rootlike, leaflike and stemlike parts.
