My PRL Colony Adventure


Hello all,


I want to share my new PRL colony juvies-adults that I got from Jake (Somewhatshocked). Here couple phone pics new in the tank and hopefully they will increase the colony. Thank you Jake for your time to answer all my questions and send me this beautiful group with extra shrimps and foods. Plus, extra time following up to make sure the package deliver in proper time and safely.

Happy holiday everyone!!!

Nice looking shrimps. What is the name of that plant in the foreground it looks like an umbrella? Is that one of the Eriocaulon species?
Im looking for some of those, but don't know the names.
