Bananariot's Not So Good Pictures of his shrimp...out of sheer boredom


These are taken with my iphone 4 with a macro lens. Just thought I'd share some of my collections of my shrimp and my college setup I have here.

School picked up so maintaining aquarium journals have kinda gone out the window

I thought I'd upload some as my favorite past time is looking at pics after all....sorry if you guys don't like them lol....

Old photo but it gives you an idea of my setup. Rescaped the 12 long after this photo.


Super Tiger


PFR


Sakura Red/Rili Hybrids


Juvie TT


Baby TT


Berried OEBT


Baby OEBT (one of a ton)


Blue Bee (not very blue, mostly maroon brown and blue)


Berried Blue Bee



Blue Rili


Red Tailed Blue Rilis I'm working on

I can't see the tail on the super tiger, but I thought the heads were usually orange as well as the tail. Are the tails orange at all?

Yeah they're both orangish yellow lol, the camera doesn't pick the color up that well.

You have too many tanks. I'm jealous. :P I notice too that PFRs have a habit of getting whitish streaks down their backs. Hm...

Look into Deep Blue tanks, I think they make those tanks in those dimensions.

I think they do but Deep Blue often is hard to find and you can't order online. If you have a Petland Discounts nearby you can check that cause I know they carry Deep Blue tanks, its where I get my 2.5 gal longs.

A note on DBP tanks.. There are two sources online where one can buy the 2.5g 18" for $32 shipped. If that's better than your LFS, I'd look into it.
