Pintos are flat out one of my favorites, and you can pull many quotes from me here and elsewhere that I didn't want "hybrids" though I think a lot of what most of us keep either technically are hybridized or may as well be. They are just so darn dainty! I might enjoy them the most of all, though I probably say that about whatever I'm looking at. But your yellow Neos really tie the tank together! I'm almost certainly bringing a few of those home when I get enough numbers built up of both them and OEBTs. They'll go in my first Dennerle that had michlings. I've sold my michlings off and wanted to do OEBTs and yellow Neos in that tank like you had in yours. Only thing was, the guy who bought the michlings drove nearly an hour and I removed everything but a few plants before he got here. We were sure I'd caught every one. As is tradition, 3 popped back out after he was long gone and now they don't really fit anywhere! And I won't even joke about setting another tank up*.
But the idea of this rack was to farm shrimp and plants for my display tanks and try different things; foods, substrates, lights, water change regimens, and so forth and better familiarize myself with the ins and outs of shrimp keeping and it is serving that purpose. I had also meant to focus on plants in these, but have kind of dropped the ball on that aspect. I need to tinker more with the plants in these tanks as well as try new species, especially in the ones with soil. Once the shrimp went in, they became all I concerned myself with.
*My wife was discussing how many houseplants and aquariums I have the other day and how many I had when we moved in together. While I had scores of geckos, colubrid snakes and such that I no longer keep, I had to admit that I've gone from 5 aquariums to 12. Most are quite low-maintenance and I might spend 3-4 hours a week doing tank stuff -and I enjoy my time doing that immensely as long as everything is well. But leaving for any period of time would be tough (assuming we ever travel again post-COVID) and these aren't tanks I could just call a teenage neighbor to look after.
Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
