Wow, hope she's doing fine! Certainly one of the nicest looking PFRs I've seen in a while!

Active as ever!

I'm, dare I say it, somewhat shocked at the survival. The odds of not being crushed by a water bucket, not being stepped on by a giant oaf (me) or getting eaten by the dog are not exactly in a shrimp's favor.

I'm running plant grower bed on my 12 long and I'm planting MM and s. repens. I'm running a 6700k t5 bulb right on top of the tank with no co2 atm. Will these plants grow in the bed fine or do I need to start using flourish comprehensive to help them a bit?

6700K T5NO or T5HO?

Either way, you've got too much light with the bulb right on top of the tank. You'll definitely have to provide CO2 and probably start dosing EI if you don't raise it up.

Can you raise the light fixture? That's always a better way to go with sensitive shrimp.

Eh do you know how high I will have to raise it? Problem is I kinda cheaped out and am using a vinyl folding table. so anything I use to raise it will probably just gonna have to be makeshift.

That really depends upon the fixture itself. Would need to see PAR data for it.

Keep getting requests for photos from above the tank. Here you go:



Everybody comes out of the woodwork when my OM NOM NOM is dropped into the tank:



Marsilea minuta is finally starting to thicken up:



Found two more berried mamas (PFRs) today. Breeding is getting out of control, so I'll soon need to sell more off, it seems.

Decided to eventually shut down my Ebi and put up an ADA 45-F in its place. Not sure if it'll be high-tech or not, as I'm torn between BTOE, Liam's Super Tigers and more Neos. The shape of this tank has obviously influenced me way too much.

Thanks for reading!

Jake

I don't remember if I asked you this, but are you running CO2 on this tank?

No CO2 or ferts, as the tank houses high-grade CBS.

Hmm I want to end up carpeting my MM, so I'm gonna put co2 in mine just to see......my source for TT's said his still breed like rabbits in CO2 so I'm gonna give it a go.

You could do a mix of BTOE and Orange Neo's xD The water params would be similar enough to promote breeding among the both of them! I have my oranges with my crs, no such luck in their breeding.
