Do tell, do tell! I have had some shrimp apocalypses myself What happened to yours?

I do have good news however. I managed to hybribize snowballs and blue pearls into true breeding "Snowpearls" They are white with the pearly sheen on them.

That sounds sexy, I want too see pictures.

15+ dead CRS shrimp and counting. Only thing that I did different was try to change up their food, that was the only thing.

Me...master? Very generous Chad but I am not even close.

I too want to do a crypt scape sometimes and give the rare ones some identity beyond collectoritis. Only if they would multiply faster!

Thanks for the information on the fertilizers, Chad! I do appreciate it. I am looking to see if I want to go back to light dosing eventually. Right now I am pumping out the nutrients, like 3 times the amount of EI for yet another experiment.

Nice banjo cat! Does he play in your band? Is he any good?

And notice I've trained Bob well to pester for pictures? My ultimate evil plan for the PP team has come to fruition.

Yeah, a bunch of thickets of keei and few other crypts with some rocks and HC, DHG would be really beautiful in a tank.

You should do it, Sara! I was going to start dosing EI, but then I realized I like the freedom that PPS-Pro gives me. You can miss dosing, miss waterchanges, and you still get nice growth, you just aren't trimming every second of your life.

3 times??? Wow, Ill be reading up on this experiment. Super salty. Maybe you could go brackish

He doesnt play, but he can cut the rug. As a matter of fact hes cut about 1/2 of my MM rug out of the 65g.

Haha, good work. It keeps us posting the good stuff!

Wow, you nailed it! I just added 'Belem' to my Nurii/rock tank a few days ago. I hope it fills in good this winter!
