a quick update, i have not been able to find time to get some more sand for substrate and do a rescape, but i did put some trimmings from my 65 gallon a few days ago and they have alreredy grown a little, heres a full tank shot as of 10 minutes ago
here's from the other side
i do not intend to keep any plant in the front, i will put them all in the back when i do rescape, also, i really think i need to put a background, that filter looks awful in the back
the shrimp have all colored up, some more than others, here's a fat one, is she pregnant?
here's another one, sorry about poor pix quality, my camera is really not for shrimp pix
here's a shot of cpd, they have really colored up and they are not really as shy as i have read in most places, i went back to LFS for more but they have all sold out!
here's all three, i could not get a clear one, they move very fast
so far i don't think i have had any losses shrimp or fish
any advice is welcome
