Soaking a different big single piece of driftwood that will look MUCH better than the current setups. I wont post until its all redone, but here is a teaser pic of a blue diamond and babaulti on the soaking wood.

Very cool setup, Triton. Just ordered one of those nifty little breeder boxes for myself! Those are way cool.

Got a cheap $10 macro/fish eye/ wide angle amazon.com lens for my iPhone 5. Amazing purchase IMO.

Photos had to be touched up a tiny bit in iPhoto, but still awesome!

Your 40breeder looks awesome! How did it work out btw using the 2 24 watt bulb Odyssea fixture, since the bulbs are only actually 24 inches long? Did you have problems lighting the tank at all? because I'm contemplating on doing the same thing with a 40breeder with the same fixture.

Thanks a lot! It's coming along nicely being a low tech shrimp setup

As for the lighting, the light is hung about 6 inches above the water and centered. Also, it is only 6 inches shorter on each side of the fixture to be able to cover the whole length of the tank , so the corners of the tank don't lose that much light intensity.

Here is a pic of how the fixture is hung, its also described on the 2nd page of the thread I like the way it looks.

no problem It does look nice that way. Did it still work decent when you had it just right on top of the tank?

Oh yeah, it worked perfectly sitting on top of the tank. I hung it for aesthetic purposes only, the hang on breeder interfered with the fixture being able to sit nicely on top.

Sorry! I've only had them for a little over 3 months since they were imported from Taiwan. My first generations are just now starting to breed for me, so ill need a little longer to get some exponential growth going on lol
