CPDzeke's ADA Mini M The Treeless Mountain V3


A few months ago I joined TPT after discovering Geniusdudekiran's tank, The Treeless Mountain V2. I got an ADA tank, an Archaea light, and some Aquasoil Amazonia. I decided that I wanted a treeless mountain too. Here I stand, with my tank The Treeless Mountain V3.

But they'll interbreed...

I'm flattered

In six months this will be very good. As for the shrimp, I vote both. They don't interbreed, as they're simply two genotypes of the same species. So it's not actually interbreeding, it's more like interracial couples

You'll end up with some red, some black, and sometimes a few brownish ones.

Great job on the tank! Just answered your PM regarding Blyxa.

Two questions.
Why can I only post one photo at a time?
What are these little white bugs in my tank? They're on the glass, and don't seem to have legs, but they don't undulate like any kind of worm. They're about half a millimeter long, and seem to prefer areas with algae on them. You can see them where they align with my light stand.

I would like to see the painted fire reds with the crystal blacks. It would be some great contrast.
