I'm assuming you are referring to the shrimp? What does pfr stand for?

If is shrimp, then Im not sure either. To give you some parameters that have not been intended, just happen to be.

Dkh - 1 or 17.5ppm
Ph - ranges from 5.65 to 6.3. During the day it drops the most as the co2 is on, and can raise back to 6.3 by next morning. As the Aquasoil is very low in ph, it encourages lower readings.
Temp - 24 Degrees Celcius

Lights hours - 8
Co2 hours - 8, and in conjunction with lights

I was unsure how hard or easy it was to breed them, it kind of just happened. I have had them from juvenile, and for 6 - 7 weeks before they began showing signs of carrying eggs.

How long have you had them ?

After all that I really hope you were talking about the shrimp lol.

yea im talking about shrimp haha, PFR stands for painted fire red shrimp witch are prety much cherry shrimp. i have had about 15 of them for about 3 weeks now and not even a little sign of eggs, but most r still juveniles so im assuming this is a big reason for them not to reproduce. we will see in due time what happens haha

Yeah, hang on to your horses - give it another 4 - 6 weeks, and I reckon you will see eggs in the females. Hopefully sooner!?

...good luck

Staurogyne and UG have almost grown in, and completed the intended look. I'm thinking 3 weeks and photo time.

I'm now getting itchy feet for another tank! This getting grown in, I like the finished product (few pending changes) and think I need another tank to mix it up - let me just consult the minister of finance, and see what she says /-:

Remed the ribbon fern from the front LHS and and the one in front of the large rock. I liked it as a filler before all the other plants grew in, but i really like it without it now. - i think its an improvement...

The UG in the front looks like it goes down all the way to the glass bottom, is there no soil there?

Such a lush tank, very unique scape and dimensions.
