Yeah, I'm doing bigger WC right now because the soil is still relatively new and still leaching a bit. There's enough BB to convert the ammonia but the leach is still driving my Nitrates up. That's why you're sending me some floaters.

The blue things are air line control valves for air pumps. I close them almost all the way so the water drips like 3-4 drops per second. Nice and slow while I watch TV.

I am going to have to retract my previous update for now. I took all the wood and plants out of the tank today to do a close inspection and take a head count. All the babies now appear to be CBS. YAY. They've grown a bit bigger so it is easier for me to see. It could have been the lighting that made me see a CRS....plus it was far away in the back of the tank when i thought I saw a CRS.

I'll know a full head count for sure when I get back from my vacation. They'll be about a month old when I get back in 3 weeks and then there will be no doubt if they are Red for Black. All the babies inspected were black today and I could not find that CRS that I thought I saw.

Do you run CO2 on the tanks? I'm questioning whether or not to run CO2 to try and carpet my tanks while I'm trying to get shrimps to breed.
