The nitrates dropped off after a few days of putting pennywort, frogbit and water lettuce into the tank. Those things suck it up fast. It's still at around 20 but compared to 160 I think it's acceptable for now.

Otherwise, added some more shrimps, CRS ( I think they are S grade? Any help would be great). I do fully understand that they can interbreed with the tigers but if I do want to sell any offspring, I will make that very clear to the buyer. But my plan is that these shrimp are for my viewing pleasure and the orange neos can breed as much as they want

Shrimps

This guy looks funny. Not sure if he looks S grade like his other friends.

So since I set up everything, the tank has finally stabilized. I ended up putting in some more black eyed blue tigers that I got in an auction. Then I went to the fish store and they were selling tigers for $1.50 each. I looked through and I saw some orange eyes on these tigers so I fished out those and some others. If these are blonde OEBTs, will they eventually breed OEBT?

Also, I decided to split up the CRS and tigers. Since I only have 5 CRS, I grabbed a breeder box and put them all in there with some java moss and frogbit. It's still linked to the tank so the water conditions are the same.

Here are some more pics!

New (hopefully blonde OEBT) tigers

Neos and tigers eating. They ate a LOT more today than ever...


Blonde OEBT? Would be cool if it was

Looked at my tank today and saw some shrimp fights but then took a closer look and....



First time I have had a berried shrimp. I don't know who the father is. It could be some CRS, which I did remove or it could be other tigers. I guess I will have to wait and find out!

More berried tigers!


More CRS (SS to B grade) that I got traded. 22 CRS for 40 white clouds!


Hello there little shrimplets!

Default Pandamonium's 12g Long - "Pride Rock" *FIRST SHRIMPLETS*

How quickly did your Tigers get berried? Mine have been in my tank for 6 weeks and have molted more times than I can count, but none of them are berried yet. What is your PH?

My tigers were berried within 1.5 to 2 weeks of getting them. The first one gave birth last week and there are 2 or 3 more following up soon. Unfortunately, I'll be at school so I won't witness it but it's okay as long as they survive The last I checked, my pH was buffered to 6.8 by the substrate. It comes out of the tap at 7.2 with a KH of almost 0-1. I imagine the pH probably dropped a little to 6.6 maybe.

They didn't touch babies for the longest time and they actually spawned in my tank without me even knowing. But I removed them just in case because they were starting to nip the mama shrimps. And thanks for the compliment! The tank looks a bit different now without the white clouds!

Been a while since I have updated the journal since being at school. In the meantime, I have added 2 breeder boxes onto the tank. One has red rili/cherry of different grades and the other has some OEBT.

Unfortunately, one of the OEBT jumped out but I have 4 or 5 left. 1 of them is blonde, the other are blue.

With regards to the tank, the orange neos have been breeding like crazy. The tank is swarming with little shrimplets. I haven't found a berried mother yet though so hopefully it hasn't all stopped. My normal tigers have met unfortunate ends Only 2 are left now, both healthy but I think both might be female as well. We will see what happens with them. I am on the lookout for more tigers at the moment, but not wanting them to breed with my OEBT.

The most recent addition to the tank are amanos which are doing a spectacular job keep the tank clean. I moved over the moss tree and have resorted to purely sponge filters, no more canister. Still deciding if I am gonna use that or sell it with the inline heater that I built.

Just 1 picture of my shrimps eating More hopefully soon


In the meanwhile, the crystals, I have moved to another 2 gallon which I will be starting a tank journal for soon Be on the lookout!
