Thanks, I accidentally uploaded the wrong video. lol I just re-posted the "right" one, which shows a quick shot of my 20G long too.

PS: I'll post current photos and videos as I find necessary on the 1st post of this journal.:P

Guess I can do an update:

The tanks:


Tangerine Tiger 3G Long:





X-mas moss recovering well


Looks like this is going to be a Golden/Snow White 3G Long:



CRS 20G Long:

Fail photo of a SSS CRS provided by Nick (speedie)!:


Pretty sure the two 3G longs surpass my liking for the 20G long.. haha

Looking good my friend!!! Especially loving the TT's... can't wait till I get a lil more shrimp expereince under my belt. They'll be my next species I try for.

Oh BTW, that Salvina I got off you have already filled BOTH my tanks! Crazy, but oh so lovely.

Thanks! They're definitely a good choice in shrimp, plus they've gotten soo much cheaper since the last time I tried them (~$60 for 5!!!!). I see them going up for sale for like $3-4 a piece now.

Kinda sad though, I think I might have shipped off 2-3 of the TT's in one of the 6-7 RAOK packages of the Salvinia. lol, I thought i was careful, but I guess not careful enough:P

Happy to hear you're spewing those out of your tanks too. haha They'll soon become an annoyance:P

The TT's didn't end up in my bag... though that would have been an epic surprise! Here's to hoping they breed for ya here soon so you won't miss them too much!

LOL, so I hear! I plan to give some to my sis for her betta bowls... she has a whole table deicated to them. Hopefully here soon RAOK some myself. Just a tad nervous as I've never packaged anything myself. Seems simple enough though.

Lol well that leaves 5-6 other options as to where they could've gone. Hopefully though, there is one saddled female in there.

You'll HAVE to give some to your sister by next week. lol These grow like weeds it's crazy. She'll soon have a problem with them overgrowing, too And the cycle will continue. haha

Shipping these plants are pretty simple, so why not give it a try. And RAOKing a package is a better way to try shipping plants than more sensitive, more expensive plants:P All you really need is a ziplock bag, a flat rate box, paper towel and newspaper (incase of spills). I was out of newspaper so I had to use some new filter floss/pillow batting. lol

This rack is sooo cool! The instant I move out at age 18, I'm getting a ton of shrimp tanks!

Little teaser coming up. Moved the TT's into my second 3G Long, and moved 5 of these guys into the original 3G long.

Favorite shrimp rightnow, Jake really made me want these guys. I think I got a steal at $2 a piece for the decent quality of these guys. This pic was literally like 4 mins after just throwing them into the tank, no drip acclimation:


Also picked up 2 10G tanks from Nick (thanks again bro!), planning on making these two tanks into taiwans? Now I just have to find space to put them.. Not sure how to fix things on the rack. lol

Oh wow, looks great mjbn! Especially for just getting em in the tank! So jelly... I've always had a thing for those ones <3

Any certain color Taiwans you want? My personal favs are the shadow pandas.

I used to think they were ugly. lol but I kept looking at Jake's journal and getting an interest in them. Now they're my current favorite:O

But I have a thing for blue bolts and shadow pandas forsure. They're definitely the first choice for me when I think I'm ready for Taiwains. haha

I'm still trying to decide which driftwood piece goes where, but here's what I did so today and yesterday.

Newly set up 10G - planning on having Taiwan's in here:


3G Long Tangerine Tiger Tank:


3G Long Golden Tank:



I felt that the original piece in the Golden tank was a little "over-powering.?" for such a small tank. But now it definitely looks empty.
