This tank has been running for a good 5 months now. My original OEBT stock came from DK and a few from a local source to liven up the genetic diversity a bit. To make things worse, I tossed in 10 BTOE I got from Nikki up in the mix as well since they ended up all being males anyway (directly from the supplier), just my luck. That was about a month ago and now the tank is teaming with newborn shrimplets. See if you can spot them in this cruddy iPhone video.

They're finally starting to multiply like rabbits. That's a good thing right?

they look awesome brotha!!! its about time you posted a thread about this tank :)
haha thanks bro. As you can see, there's nothing really to be proud of except the shrimp. I had to wait till there was some sort of success first :tongue:. Give me 2 more months and I'll have OEBT/BTOE mixed babies up the Yin Yang.

dang! you weren't kidding when you told me your OEBT tank was super low maintenance...when I had my OEBT tank running a few months ago I had 2 filters, heater, and co2 running (to keep the pH down) :frown:
You're over thinking it brotha! Simplicity!! ;)

Nice Nick. Breed up those Black Tigers! :)
Let's see if Nikki comes through with a nice BTOE female for me soon :D. Money's already in the bank!!
