Yes, shes berried. She has a nice color to her since shes a first time mom. As they get older they get a slightly bluer hue to them when they are berried. And yes, thats my Clado collection from my dirt merchant tank

LOL I have a little Clado that hides like that in some of my foreground and mid ground plants.

Cool to know on the shrimp.

I ordered 10 Blue Velvet Neos from Speedie yesterday can't wait for them to arrive.

Yep, I know it and have it as well I like it a lot doesn't get as big as pothos does (it is actually a different plant family) I like it a lot thought nice satin like leaves with cool silver markings. It is definitely harder to find although I got mine at Lowes (it's amazing what they have sometimes)

I saw the pic in your thread and it is the same one. I also found mine at a different place. Wal-mart of all plces, stuffed in with a fern that I thought was cool. Turns out the fern is a local and ive just never seen it wild before, or it was different under greenhouse conditions?

Anything and everything. Soft to hard, dirty to clean, Co2 to low tech. These guys are as bad as TPFRs as far as breeding like crazy. Not typically Tiger traits, but these are cockroaches.

I've read that TT's are aggressive breeders, mine a doing great in a low tech with no heater, gH 5, kH 1, I have no idea what the ph is but it's a AS tank so maybe 6.8 or something close to that. I think the males lure in the females with a French PePe La Pu type of accent.

My moss experiment kinda got lost in all my builds but after 7 days it had taken root onto both the wood & rocks, if I had a high tech tank ready to fill I think it would have worked fairly well with the only real advantage to this method being no string was used to attach the moss but you pay in the length of time it takes the plants to grow out.

You guys must have a strong strain of TT's... I do get them berried every other month but the survival rate is never high...
