Glad to see your tank reborn.

Thanks for reminding me that S. repens is perfectly scaled for these cubes.

Looking forward to seeing everything grow and develop.

after 2 weeks out of the country, i came back to this:

not bad, IMO. though my dad was giving it top-offs, so that helped.

after a trim on the s. repens, and light trim on the HC (slowly but surely growing in ), i took some more shots.

FTS:


prego female amano:



male amano with some spirulina BS:


rili shrimp:





b. brigittae:

Looking really good! Good looking rilis to, really nice color definition. How consistant do they breed for you? As far as keeping the distinct seperation of head and tail.

thank you crazydaz!
i was actually worried for a bit cuz my HC was stagnating, but now its carpeting. still going along very slowly, but definitely going and no die off. so on one hand i wont be selling HC from this tank very often (if ever), but on the other hand this tank will be very VERY low maintenance. with the HC growing slowly, the s. repens being a slow grower and easy to trim anyway, the only thing that will actually need cutting down is the blyxa, and thats easy to trim.
added 4 more b. briggitae, after i only had 3 left. some jumped. but since the floaters spread a little, the remaining 3 havent been jumping, and seem very calm and content. now that i added the new ones from the same store (and likely the same shipment batch, since they are in the very back room in a bare tank with poor lighting, and i doubt many people notice them and get some); im seeing how much they are thriving. they are so much more colorful. the ones i just added are super skinny, one even has a concave belly, grey with some orange. the older ones are bigger, nice and plump, and bright orange with some red.
one of my rili shrimp is saddled, and then another (the one thats essentially just a PFR - though likely a carrier of the rili gene) may be berried. but because how thick and blood red the exoskeleton is, im not sure. i just noticed something was darker around the swimmeretes. ill have to see from a different angle.
no pics cuz i dont have my camera on me. next week.

the solid red lady hatched her clutch sometime this week. i saw her no longer carrying eggs. and then managed to find some shrimplets. here they are:




sorry the pics arent the best, but that greyish vertical bit in the last pic is the CO2 tubing, so thats a size reference for who tiny these guys are right now.
