Special thanks to...
Katz Aquatics @TropicalAquarist(Sam) for making the process of procuring both high quality breeds with amazing ease. Included was a very nice "Starter kit" with Indian Almond Leaves/ Alder Cones/Cholla Wood/Shrimp food samples. He was very curious to my setup which showed passion to his shrimp in wanting them to have a stable tank environment. Future customer for shipments to come!

Donny/Steve at Wet Pets in Vernon, CT for making sure whatever I wanted & needed was available for this venture.

More to come...

Looking great, they've settled in nicely!
Huh never heard of frozen duckweed, have to look into that!

I'd love to see a full tank shot as well!

Picked the frozen duckweed off of Marks Shrimp Tanks on youtube. He has a ton of other foods to feed as well but evidently Duck Weed is very high in protein. Who knew!

Ended up doing some massive water changes and re-acclimation due to TDS off the scale. Note to self easy on the montmorillonite clay..
Added before shot during cycling from over a month ago. Also added a 18-24' Current USA Pro Plus and plants.

Sacrificing space for dishes to accommodate aquarium equipment. A true aquarist, I love it

The bonus of having a counter the size of a small family home! Debating getting two more cubes to maybe breed zebra plecos... May need to actually get a decent shelving unit for 4 cubes.. something about a kitchen of fish tanks that seems too much!

Its never to much... that only applies to cats Well maintained tanks are a thing of beauty, can't think of a better way to enjoy breakfast. Might need to get a bowl out of the closet but hey.... sometimes we must make sacrifices.

So the ole bags have been up to no good lately. The CRS berried up last week but today it seems the Bloody Mary's got some action!
