Realized I haven't really put up any pics of the tanks growth.

Some moss growth on rocks and foam. Also club moss on clay wall is making a comeback.





Bump: This club moss is awesome the tips sart as a orange/yellow color then turn red as it matures



Tricolor fern showing a lot of red




Anubias growing well emersed

Actually no. That's where I first saw them but they were way out of my price range to buy new. I waited patiently till one came up on craigslist.

Matter of fact someone is selling a 85 gal on CL for $200 (tank only) but says it has a leak. I will admit I was tempted but my wife would probably murder me in my sleep if I brought a new tank home.

Are you feeding the darts FF? Or just having a small population and letting them live on the springs and isopods?

I could see where this would be confusing but I was just showing the darts as they are my newest distraction. They are not in this tank but in their own species specific (no mixing) terrariums and not in the paludarium. The paludarium does not have enough of a land section for darts and I would be afraid of them escaping.

But to answer the original question I do feed them FF but also have springtails and isopods as a clean up crew in their vivariums. I wish I got a video but my giant orange tincs were attempting (not successfully) to eat full grown giant orange isopods the other day.

I am getting the itch to stock the water area. I want to keep the fish selection to micro fish. I originally wanted to do clown killies and still do, but have had trouble tracking some down. I also like the CPD's and also think scarlet badis are cool too. Then there is the part of me that want to get some freshwater pipefish. Might do pygmy corries or kuhli loaches for the bottom.

As for inverts I was thinking that it would be cool to get some variety of orange eyed tiger shrimp to match the crabs glowing eyes. I also might get some CPO or vampire shrimp.

Any other thoughts or suggestions?

How well do the crabs play with fish and shrimp?
I think any nano fish, but too nano, should be alright, maybe a Boraras species is what I would try. Boraras urophthalmoides?
The tigers would be nice. Just gotta keep in mind that the Vampire Shrimp are filter feeders.

In my experience healthy fish don't get got by crabs. I have amano shrimp in there and they don't really interact with the crabs either. There are so many species that I could consider and I want to make the right choice. I also like glass catfish a lot too.

Yeah I'm aware of Vampire shrimps requirements I have kept them before.
