So far I haven't seen any shrimp going above water level yet. I guess it's fine. The shelving and plumbing alone cost about $400 not including my elbow grease labor .

I took over fplata's Taiwan Bee + Hybirds stock. There are 200+? shrimps!! And there are beautiful King Kong and Panda. When I have more time I will post some photos.

Today I received the remote flash trigger. Here are 2 test shots of my Hakata lines.



The Rack looks like this now:

Thanks guy! The shrimp on the second photo is one of my Hakata PRL with the redder legs. I'll try to take individual photo of all of them when I have time to spend 😆

you should get some sort of feeding dish to help control the excessive food from spoiling your soil/water/parameters.

there are a few options in the FS section. I've found IKEA has some great glass candle tea light dishes that work amazing.

more pictures!!

I have feeding dish, just never feel like using it yet... maybe I should.

Made a BIG mistake! Sunday after water change I add some DANCE to watch them dance... Afterward during this week I have 4-5 dead shrimps including one King Kong and one Hakata PRL...

I took many close ups of the shrimps and posted it in the shrimp section. Might as well dump them all here:

3 PRL are berried! Weekly water change and blood worm meal seem working! By the way i have too many Taiwan Bee misching s now, maybe it is time to thin out the herd...

Wow!! such a great setup. how much maintenance do you spend on this setup? and I assume all Cardia shrimp, so same temp, same water parameters for all tanks since they are on the same sump.

Good news! Found 3 new born PRL babies on the glass. They look like they have 2 strips pattern. Also I have 4 berried PRL separated in the "birth giving" section.

In the Taiwan Bee section I added 3 less nice PRL to widen the gene pool. Now I have my first berried King Kong and one berried misching.

Do you have a log for your new setup? Let me check it out!

Thanks! My maintenance is like daily topoff and weekly 10% water change. I feed daily rotating food from jake's complete veggie, 3 other brands of shrimp foods, organic mixed veggy (corn, green bean, carrot), and frozen blood worm on Sunday. All tanks share the same water body so the temperature & parameters are pretty stable.
