Cardinals and Neons aren't very hardy anymore.

Last time I had hair algae my nitrates were over 40. Have you tested your nitrates?

Yea I checked my nitrates, they were fine so Im almost positive that it was the hydrogen peroxide.

Anyways, heres an photo update of all the tanks!




Need to trim the moss...



Love how this tank is filling in!






Need to trim the moss badly in this one, also the UG is starting to spread rapidly!



This is a meh tank.....dont know what ima really do with it.



Starting to get tired of having to trim this tank every week even though I do like the colors and the look...

Nothing really new with the tanks, I did trim all the tanks that I said needed trimming. Also got some Tiger Shrimps from a club member! Wanted to get these guys for a while now but for some reason never got around to doing it. Heres some quick pics I took today of em.

Thats actually a great idea. I might do that if I dont scrap this whole tank and just do a redo, it just looks ugly to me now..

Woot woot! Found my first berried Tiger shrimp today! Not sure how long it has been berried for as I have been gone since last wednesday. Crossing my fingers that I find some baby tigers. Anyone know how long it takes to hatch?

Also I have decided to most likely rescape the 10 gallon that I keep saying I hate and will also mostly rescape the 20. I wont have time for the next two weeks as im going on another vacation but hopefully it will get done before the end of the month. This will also stop me from the itch to buy and start another tank lol

Im very jealous, and it sounds like these tanks have been taking you on quite the journey. the only question i have is, what type of plants are you using for the riparium? sorry if it was already mentioned, i didnt notice if it was previously.

Look on the forums for a guy named hydrophyte, he sells them along with a bunch of other riparium supplies/plants. Or go to his website ripariumsupply.com

Been super busy and didn't have time to take good pics of all the tanks because I had to pack for another vacation this weekend. Something cool did happen though, since I knew I was going to be gone this weekend I decided to finally make some Repashy Community Plus food to dump into the tanks so over the weekend the fish could have some food but it seems like the shrimp like it more then the fish lol heres a few quick shots I took when I saw them swarm over the food. Also found a second berried tiger shrimp so im very happy, I hope to see baby shrimplets soon
