Thanks guys! We had a blast this weekend, and I was able to buy me a nice little commuter car to save on gas.

Honestly, without the wifey none of this could have been possible. Love her! And the kids... I've trained them well... they don't touch Daddy's man cave stuff at all .

I don't know if you said it anywhere but how many tanks do you have running at any given time?
Thank you! I have about 22 tanks including my planted tanks. Not much...

I love the first picture of the feather prl! Every time I see one of your pictures I come a little closer to breaking down and buying a DSLR and macro lens! Just so expensive

Nice pics as always Nick as well as shrimp. Will the CBS shrimp, even the PBL, never have a shell as white as the CRS cuz of the blue hue that gives them the black coloring? Or are they just not bred as much as the CRS to get to the state that most PRL are in. I mean your PBL are pretty white, just saying havent seen many that have the white like say some of the CRS that our out there.

Bryce - thanks! I'm not sure if there's a specific name for that pattern.

Don't buy a DSLR because you want to take pics of shrimp... buy one because you want to learn how to take GREAT looking pictures of everything else.

Thanks! Seeing several lines of PBL compared to PRL, the white does look different and is much more noticeable up close and personal. The white on the PBL is more of a yellowish white compared to PRLs crisp snow white. I don't know why it's like this.

The babies are growing and more babies are popping out! It's a thriving colony and they are so easy to care for. Tap water and sand only lol. Wish all shrimp were this easy.

You're welcome and Happy Thanksgiving!

Why can't I want the easy ones? I just can't get past my obsession with BKK and Blue Bolts. Of course Nick's pictures feed that addiction ...
