Hi, I'm new here and love these tanks (especially the left one) and this thread.

I'm planning a 2-Gal planted nano for shrimp and will be following!

Thanks. They've grown in quite a bit. Need to do another trim and a photo shoot this week so I can update the thread.

Welcome to the forum!

Super-excited!

Just ordered some extremely red CRS. Here's hoping I'm able to do some cool things with my existing bloodlines.

Any chance we can see a shot of these all together in situ, if they're sitting next to each other?

Really, like your setups with shrimp. Hoping one day I can go in that direction.

travelvice: There are several photos of the cubes together in this thread.

UDGags: Thanks. These little bugs have bred like crazy in the cubes, as they have in my other tanks, so I'm looking forward to the Super Reds I ordered. Sure to be tons of fun.

I have many tanks on a huge, industrial rack, so it's not really possible to photograph them in detail near each other. There are a few rack photos spread throughout some of my journals. Will try to get an updated shot or two this weekend.

Super Reds arrived:



Dripping them in to the 25cm cube now.

Hoping they color up quite a bit.

Okay, they're coloring up slightly:








Not the reds I want, so I guess I'm still on the hunt. But I will attempt to work with these a bit to see what happens.
