No pics? Blimey, I was so looking forward to seeing 13 measly Ghost Shrimp in an unplanted plastic box.

i'll get the pics when the plants go in (a great excuse for my procrastination issues)

i also noticed one of the female's abdomen had a whiteish color with ?circles? i could hardley tell at this point... what are the chances of then being eggs? i would describe the color as milky right now but this is the fist day i've seen it

one shrimp down... total = 12

11/6/08
another one gone...... total = 11



i'm going to get some low light plants and just turn that tank into a jungle.... Any ideas on low lights that can grow in 7.0-7.2 PH and can be rooted in gravel? if cheap enough i might be able to get a small bag of eco-complete and put in both tanks... can that even go in a tank that uses a UGF?
