Regular looking cherries I guess. I look for 100% coverage of color. If they dont have it, theyre out. From there I grade them on how thick/dark the color is. This can be a trick because a newly molted female will saddle quickly and the yellow saddle makes her shell look thin. A crappy looking frshly molted female can get better before she molts again. I never cull young'ns. I try to keep the best males and as few as I deem worthy. I cull big females that just dont make the cut. Mostly as food for other peoples fish :O

Cool, sounds like what I do with my CRS except I don't feed them to anyone's fish (all right maybe I let a few fall into my co-workers SW tank but I was bored...) either I just bring them home to my cull tank or I do a cull sale. Since with CRS (and im sure fires too) just because a specific shrimp doesn't make my cut, it will still mainly produce very high quality high grade shrimp. You got to love genetics!

Lol, so I was browsing through your journal earlier and I saw this and laughed my butt off.

I never realized you were only an hour and a half away, next time we trade plants if I have money I'm just gonna have to drive out there lol.

Yes, thanks, thats a nice piece I need a few IDs. There was a hygro in there I believe, any idea what one? There is another ill have to get a pic up so you can see it because its hard to describe other than its not ludwigia, rotundafolia, wallichii, or mermaid weed. There was 2 stems of it.

The emergent setup is looking great. This weekend im adding a fourth nursery flat for crypts and a much needed heat pad for all four of them My batteries are dead in my camera and im heading out of town for the weekend so ill have to wait until Monday for new pics. Ill still be on and off, I just wont be around my tanks I havent seen an update from yours on APC in awhile, is it still doing good? The Rosenervig is looking pretty sweet. It has white veins, no pink yet, but we'll see. It may be the lighting?

Try feeding the rosanervig with some root tabs once the root system is establish.

I only post in it if I get a new sp to flower. Not much luck with other sp.

Man we are on the same pace I just added a 4th nursury flat today myself, I also bought some shorter domes 3" so I can do a couple shallow racks for crypts that don't grow that high, I should be able to get 6 x 7" domes and 4 x 3" domes on 5 shelves on the 4' bakers rack I have. All I have in 3 of them is crypts and bucephalandras, I still have one with some random stems, moss and a bunch of H pinnatifida I'm growing in rockwool (stuff is a weed in my tank lol..)
