The females especially enjoy it, hiding out in there when their eggs are ready to hatch and just after molting.

My xmas moss is finally starting to take off now so I'm hoping to see some big changes in the next couple months with this tank.

Nowhere fancy as most but its working...lots of babies and noticed one of the females yesterday so full of eggs she could barely move it seemed:



10gal, PFR's (no culls from source so really a mix), taiwan moss, fissidens, couple stems of macaranda, some pearl weed, dwarf sag, dwl frogbit, salvinia, duckweed. filtered by a dual sponge air driven and an ac30 with large sponge prefilter, lighting is standard hood with 2 13w cfls. Also has subwassertang and another variety of moss and IAL and one or two alder cones.

Tank at 80g size need CO2 to make all your plants beautiful. Not sure if you use CO2 or not but with a size like that you don't have to worry about poisoning your shrimp and commercial CO2 is cheap.

I will keep it on mind. I have my planted tanks with CO2. But, at the same time I have had bad experiences with CRS and CO2. The plants that I have in this tank have done good without CO2 (slow growing), too bad my iPad doesn't take good pics, but plants are healthy... The only issue that I have is hair algae.

Now what really maters is that my shrimp colony is blooming! There are small tiny babies all over the tank, tried to count them and got at least 90. I started my tank with 30 juveniles.
