Most plants in the 40 gal have been sold, just waiting for someone to claim around 10 dwarf sags for $5.

Back on topic, I came home today and turned on the bowl light to find this little guy molting. here is a pic of him after the molt was done :

yes, though he is probably the only shrimplet in the tank (slight chance there may be more hiding). so he survived the first week, lets hope he gets to his second week and gets growing faster! He is noticeably bigger already than the day he was born .

Nice he could be the "special" one with the right mix of genes to survive and grow in that bowl of yours. Lord knows you went through a few berries to get one survivor.

yes it is pretty amazing! Now I'll be getting some A grades this week as well, and they will go into this tank. hopefully they will breed even better.

I did a big trim on the moss in the bowl a few days ago. there was a lot of extra, I used it to furnish a marina cubus tank for some cherry shrimp (i had them left over from my 40 gallon)

The bowl doesnt look much different, only two females and i think one shrimplet in here. more crystal shrimp are arriving next week. hopefully they will be S grade or below, but it depends on the shipper. i was notified they ran out of A grades >_< I hope they dont send many SS grades even if they are for the price of A grades.

This week i will hopefully get new CRS juveniles from two different sources. one batch will be from nikki - a member on this forum. I am hoping for S grades or lower, as I expect them to be more prolific than higher grade, but I'm probably going to get SS grades too.

Baby crystal shrimp is still alive, i saw him today.

I like the bowl too, and have decided to bring it along in the move instead of taking it down.

with cooler house temps in the winter season, i am sure the new juveniles will grow up fast and start breeding well. I think that was my only issue in the summer time.
