See? I learned something new. :P So they molt if the water params change (to be expected, then, when changing tanks halfway across the country), they molt as they grow, and molting triggers breeding behavior if they're old enough and saddled, correct? Argh... my head is swimming in the shrimp tank.

Heh I learned something as well! Didn't know about diff water params causing molts myself :P

The shrimp look lovely mosspearl!!! Keep the pics coming!!! I want BV's and yellow neos so badly but only have one tank set up for shrimp atm, which is housing cherries... I'm not wanting to muddy up such pretty colors, so I shall live vicariously thru you for the time being.

You are most welcome, I<3<*))))><! I have long lived vicariously through others on this forum, it's only fair I do my part. In the meantime, I will try to improve my atrocious photography skills for your benefit.

In the meantime... the next generation of shrimpers hone their skills. My two youngest are already asking questions I have to look up answers for. They will quickly surpass me, I'm sure. My youngest son, especially, is utterly fascinated with them. He's the one in green.

Thank you for sharing that picture of your children observing your shrimp, Mosspearl! This is such a wholesome interest to cultivate in children. I know they will learn a lot too!

Yeah. I'm glad some of them are interested. I've got a slew of children... you never know if they're going to be interested or not.

Latest pics... I've been swamped with work, so I haven't been able to update as much as I'd like. :P Please excuse the poor quality pics from my phone.

A BV on the prefilter:


Two BVs enjoying some of Jake's OmNomNoms:


A Yellow on the back wall of the tank:


And a Yellow up close and personal:


They're beginning to swim more and seem to enjoy flitting about at a leisurely pace. They're so much fun to watch. I'm already hooked and trying to figure out where I can put more. LOL

Found an Evolve8 to move my betta to, so the Evolve4 will soon become the new BBRR tank.



Meanwhile, the yellows feed and breeze by the Tardis...

LOVE the tanks and the TARDIS is da bomb! I have GOT to get me one of those. Looking forward to the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who in November. Not looking forward to the December episode where Matt Smith's Doctor dies. =( My husband and I have been dedicated Whovians since the 1970s. We even watched the live simulcast world-wide event that BBC did last month to announce the actor stepping into the shoes of the next Doctor. I think they made a great choice! Though I can't believe Bill Nighy turned the role down. He would have been awesome too.
