I want to get them again because i only have 2 males but man a college student's budget is really tight... and 4-5 dollars a shrimp +10 dollars SnH is a killer.
Whenever the shrimp shells get really shiny and dark, they are likely to molt soon. A dirty little secret , this is when they are best photographed. Add a pinch or two of calcium clay and ensure they will get through this. I havent had a failed molt in the past 7 months since ive started this and readily give out calcium at meets to help others overcome this problem. Its a simple and inexpensive fix.

Im sure a 125 will come up again on craiglist as they do quite often. Just have to be patient

It's just a shoplight on a ZooMed Vivarium lamp stand.

Monster: I added yellow shrimp from dasob85 on Monday. 71 of them! XD The kids were fighting over the magnifying glasses & it was madness so I didn't get pictures. I really need to update their blog too, lol. It's grown in really well, I removed excess plants a few weeks back and I'm working on a lighting problem but otherwise going beautifully.

Thanks furnfins! That was the idea XD I think all my tanks start with a nice hardscape and then I add plants and it becomes a wilderness because I can't be bothered to do trimmings, lol. Hopefully the 125 turns out nice.

The tank is growing out. My mosses are looking really pretty! But there was also an algae bloom (most likely because I removed a TON of frogbit, shoulda known better).

UG slowly but surely
