Hello everyone, I am about to post a video of my tank.
It's been a long while since I have updated and since then I had my tank crash since I stopped CO2 and was sort of negligent, a lot of plants died and had to do a complete re-scape. It has been up now for about three weeks, and plants are growing fast now that I do regular maintenance! It is a great to see how a little maintenance every so often goes a long way.
My plants are already spreading and the shrimp are happier. Three berried in these two weeks since they have cleaner and better monitored water.
Fixed my algae issues also by leaving the lights on a few hours less than before.
Video is still uploading on YouTube so I will post a link to it here in a couple of minutes.

I will also post some stuff on my Finnex 4 Gallon in its thread tomorrow.

Nice tank and vid. I like the cherry hitching the ride on the mystery snail lol. If I'm not mistaken tho the yellows and cherries will breed together.

Really? I did not know that, I just got the yellows a couple of days ago. What would the babies look like?

Update 2/3/11

Hello everyone, took some pictures today and just updating on my ten gallon tank.

Like I said the tank kind of took a bad turn when it got neglected. Since I moved it from one corner of the room to the other I didn't bother to setup the CO2 again and from there things went bad, but now I have meticulously been doing my water changes and maintenance and things are looking a lot better, I didn't take pictures of the tank when it was dying/covered in algae.

Also the shrimp have been moved back in here recently, they used to be in my Finnex 4 Gallon where I would pull out the shrimp that looked the most red and had them breed so I got some nice red ones now compared to last year. The CRS/CBS/Yellow shrimp just came in about last week so they are new to the tank. As for my finnex something has happened I will post on it's thread the water no mater how many water changes has a white tinge to it. Fish and shrimp seem fine but I think it might be from the yeast from the CO2 because a white sticky film produces on the surface of the water and it worries me.

Plants in here have been kind of rearranged and the rocks have also been glued together because they kept falling and were previously scattered.

Let me know what you think, and as far as the yellow shrimp being in there should I move them away from the cherries?








There is a shrimp in the pics that is a Cherry Shrimp with a purple color to it. It is one of the ones that I had bred, the rest of its sisters/brothers came out fire red with red feet, but this one came out a darker red with purple, the only one. It was berried at one point when it was smaller but it was its first time and it dropped the few eggs it had (too many for its size at the time). I am waiting for my Finnex to get better to separate it with a fire red one to see if they breed. Any ideas on why it is this color?
