Nice CRS - and lots of them!

That "home" you made for them is interesting. Why do the shrimp need it?

edit: ....and welcome to the forum, Compro . I just noticed this was your first post.

Hi Ted,

That "home" is their hiding area as well as their eating place. Those black round tubes are actually charcoal and tied with java moss on top like this. Charcoal is use to absord those harmful ammonia.

oh yes, my first posting indeed.

cheers


hi Jeff,

I use hairgrasshttp://sg.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/xbo...cd.jpg&.src=phfor the foreground.

Christmas moss is nice if use as foreground. As for me, i make a moss wall at the background or tie some to driftwood and place it all over.


cheers

Interesting "home"...or condominium at least. Where did you get those charcoal tubes from?

All the plants in your album look fantastic. What is "special moss"?

Hi ,

Those charcoals the size of a bmx bicycle handle with holes are bought during my trip to Japan. But later realise i can get them also in my hometown Singapore
I use netting and tie them together with a floor tile to make it sink and tried out different types of plants as shelter,namely mini pellia,moss,and fissiden now .And oh..did i mention that it also act as their breeding ground when the moss grow densely...

The special moss ...well..i have no idea which type it belongs to as i found it in Japan...http://sg.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/xbo...cd.jpg&.src=phshould maybe called it JAPAN MOSS


cheers
