Lets see where it goes 10 Gallon


Well WOW a month has already passed and I've been sick the last week so I got to work today to update and at least try to photo one tank

All levels have been stable now for the last month and I must say that this tank is def doing great!

So here's some pics (not too many shrimps today I need to find my REAL camera iphone 5 camera is great but is def no replacement for a camera with a nice macro lens )

Full Tank Shot from the Front


Moss with the Shrimp, wow this stuff has bounced back amazingly from it's unhappy state at the LFS


A more top down shot of the moss, I will be having to trim this and mesh some soon


Brazilian Pennywort growing nicely


The Shrimps are getting big


The Cholla is starting to get covered nicely, shrimp and bn pleco love it!


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the update!!!!!!!!!!!

Random tank update to show groth over the last month or so, the Pennywort that I gave away in my last RAOK came from this tank and it was 4 or 5 good sized stems....hence why that doesn't look like it's grown too much, excuse the FAN in the reflection LOL

I blanch and dry the zuch freeze it only doing it once a month to prevent freezer burn...

When I feed I either rinse the frozen veggie for 10 sec or pop it in the micro for 7-10 sec just be careful not to put it in too hot!

You can also put it in raw but I find that my shrimp and plecs seem to like it a lot more when it's blanched!

So while I'm updating I thought I would add a few new pictures of this tank.

I've been switching these guys over to Remin RODI as well and have seen some vast improvements in their activity as well as their color!

These two were 'playing' when I got around to taking photos






Feeding Time!!!


Recent Molting


Full Tank Shot 1
I'm having some remnant hair issues in this tank, I have started treating with excel daily and have been removing affected areas. What you see is what has grown in about the last two or so weeks


Full tank angle shot
IDK for some reason I really like this shot. It's hard to tell but the entire back end of the tank is moss as well. It's a shrimp paradise!


Thanks for stopping by! Again as always suggestions are welcome

Great pics thanks for sharing! Do you leave the feeding dish in there or take it out? If left in, do you drop food in by hand?

I usually pull any uneaten food out to try to not foul my water up. I put the food in the dish outside the tank to make sure it sinks and doesn't go all over in the water. Especially barley like what you see them eating in the pics... barley can get messy fast.
