Tanks and critters


I started a 7.9G Fluval Ebi in June, and it's evolved quite a bit since then...

Here are a couple of old pictures, enjoy!

Tank originally had 4 purple passion danios (D. roseus), 1 gold pristella tetra, and an apple snail in it.



Bought this head labeled "Anubias" from a local Petco. Umm...



Started also with a healthy culture of duckweed and like 3 dwarf water lettuces that would eventually overtake all of my tanks...



And here's my snail Mr. Appleton:

A few more recent shots. Acquired some RCS and some painted fire reds. Mr. Appleton has tripled in size, at least... And moved the danios out to a bigger tank. Found by chance some Corydoras hastatus at a LFS and now they are happy tank mates with the shrimps:



This cherry is mom to at least 50 juvies:



Caught in the act?



A berried low grade cherry:

A couple of impulse buys...

Probably a sunkist/C. propinqua here with 2 cherries:



Can see her eggs...



The other yellow shrimp is a bit shy. I've yet to figure out if she's a Neocaridina yellow variant or a yellowish babaulti.

Nice work on the tanks. I'm getting crs and planning not to mix the carid and neos in fear of cross breeding.

I dont know about you, but i find when they shrimp are happy, my mosses also begin to shoot many more blooms out.

Shrimp look awesome! Got excited when I saw your screen name because my last name is Appleton, then I realized it was the name of your snail! LOL
