Redid my main display tank!

After much debating with my friend, I decided to start fresh.

Instead of the high tech setup I originally had with tibees and bloody mary's, I went super simple, but still stylish Pretty bare tank as I want the main focus on the shrimp.

Keeping it simple with 5 tibees right now. Will see if they settle in nice then figure out what to do after that. Not going to be in home for the next month or so.. so we'll see what happens. The tank survived alone with 1 top off during my 6 week trip in europe in May, so hopefully the heat doesn't get to it this time around.























Here's version 2 of this current tank. This will probably be my last time using this tank. Will try a different display tank as my main tank next time around.


All my other shrimp colonies are still breeding well and kept in a remote location.

Looking good! I like it. Hopefully the tibees will crank out some babies while your gone. Two questions for you. What type/size tank is that? Are you using tap water with the tibees?
