Seachem aquavitro line. A more expensive and supposedly better version of the flourish line. Only say supposedly because I have never tried it myself, just what my lfs told me.

It is starting to warm up and the room that the taiwan bees are in has been getting into the high 70's-low 80's. The tank that they are in does not have a chiller but I do have a cycled tank with a chiller already hooked up and ready to be used. I have two berried shrimp that I am worried about moving due to the extra stress that it would put on them. Should I move them?

Why not get a couple cheap computer fans for each tank?

They work extremely well, often cooling my tanks down 7-8 degrees.

+1^

A well placed computer fan can easily pull the temp down by 5 degrees or more, and that can be the difference between living or infection/dying. As long as the temp is at 75 and under (preferably under).

I just grabbed a spare 80 mm computer fan and connected it to walwart ac adapter that was lying around. I laid the fan down on top of the tank and tape the fan to the sides of the aquarium. Ghetto, perhaps, but hey, it's free and it works! Just make sure you do daily top offs with RO water.

Fan would be your best bet as moving them could force an egg drop, more so in the later stages of their pregancy.

My large bottom tank was out of commission for a while after it was emptied due to a large BGA outbreak. The Aquasoil was old and out of juice so it needed to be emptied anyway. I gave everything a bleach bath followed by prime to kill off any remaining BGA. I raised some funds and bought some bags of AS from ADG and as of 10/1 it is filled and cycling.

I also added floaters to all of the shrimp tanks. The shrimp seem to be happier living in the shade. The hide less and are out and about a lot more often.

I am on the lookout for some blue bolts. I finally am going to get some now that they are a little more affordable. I have been drooling over them since pictures of them first appeared on the forums.

Thank you.

I bought some blue bolts and a few other TB's from Soshrimp here on TPT. They have been in their tank for 2 days and have been very active. They are still small so it should be a while before I get any babies out of them. I also ordered some orange rilis a few days ago that should be here next week. They aren't going to go on the rack, instead they are going in one of my regular tanks.

One of these days I will post a picture of the other side of the wall. It doesn't look very presentable at the moment.

Not much new going on with the rack at the moment.

Just about everything is going well on the shrimp rack. The yellows, CRS, CBS, and blue bees are giving me babies. The TB's that I bought back in October haven't started yet but are still young and should be of age soon. I am looking forward to some blue bolt babies.

I have had an adult male shadow panda in with an adult female CRS for a few months now without any results. He doesn't seem to be interested in her at all so I stuck a few more female CRS in there as well as a female golden bee. Maybe one of them will interest him.
