Ummm...about a month I guess. I got them from a member here and had them in a 20T tank. Well, actually they stayed in a breeder box inside a 20T tank and there were RCS in the tank itself. I finally got my big tank (75g) rescaped and moved all the RCS out and into that tank and tore down the 20g and setup the 40B for the yellows. Hoping to get some good breeding going on. It actually looks like there already is...lol

Yeah, one was berried when I got them and they batch hatched. In the mean time five more got knocked up...I guess when you're stuck in a tiny breeder box there isn't much else to do...and no place to hide...haha.

I might start netting all my saddled females and stick them in a breeder with a couple males and let the magic happen. I actually thought about turning my AC 110 into a HOB breeding box.

FTS as promised. Needs more plants, hope to have a bunch more Narrow Leaf Java Fern next week as long as my pending trade works out. I know the sponge filters are a bit of an eyesore, but the tank is about the shrimp. Let me know whatcha think....

Not much happening at the moment. Shrimp became pretty shy but have started coming out a little more. I reduced the lights some, I had the DIY tubes and two CFL's. To my eyes it is very dim without the CFLs but I guess that doesn't matter. I now have just one CFL aimed at the rock formation to hit the plants with a little extra light. I am pretty sure I am still in the low light range which is good. I shouldn't have to dose ferts often, maybe a half dose every couple weeks or so and see what happens. I have a bunch more Java Fern coming, some for this tank, some for an upcoming 20L Tiger shrimp tank I hope to start very soon. No babies and honestly haven't even seen the berried females for a while. Hoping they are ok in there. Maybe just hiding out?

Yeah, a few are bright, some are kinda light in color. Have some babies that have appeared since lights out last night. So far I have seen 4. Three yellow and one looks red. Kinda strange. Guess we'll see what happens once they get a little bigger. Here is a shot of one from today...for some reason the yellows are hard to shoot...

Sorry about it being sideways. This was just after installing the new exhaust. The link is for video of how the bike sounds. Needs some tuning but you get the idea.

Nubs - great looking tank! I have to ask you though. Does your stand have any sideways movement? I'm curious that you haven't got any cross bracing or reinforcement along the upper deck like a header or something going on there to keep that lateral sway under control.

Actually on the back there is a piece of 1/2 plywood that spans the entire width and it about 10" wide. It's screwed in down the legs and all the way across the back. It's pretty sturdy not to mention it's wedge in nice and tight between my 75g tank and the wall...lol
