That makes sense. I thought since there are so many hiding spots they just might.

I'm not really keeping them to breed. I just really love them hehe.

I'd imagine it has something to do with the shrimp sensing their space is to limited to produce. Who knows tho

This is the prettiest tank I have. Haha I love it. I've got a ZooMed501 on it as well.

The moss and everything just makes this tank so fun to look at.

The shrimp are beautiful.

Thanks! I probably wouldn't get another one, but I'm in love with the one I have.

They are notoriously hard to scape. Luckily, I fell into my scape because of the moss.

Yeah, I've heard that a few times. I think you should take out a few males and females and breed them

That's a great idea, actually. I don't really have another tank for them at the moment. I could always try set one up specifically for breeding

How about a few pictures.

All is well in this tank. The tank was stable after my move home from college. Everything transferred real well.

The shrimp are great, too.

Some good news! I see freshwater limpets in my tank. They look cute. I don't know why some people hate them.


This is how the tank looks to the eye.

But light in pictures distorts it to a very yellow state in other pictures.
