  1. Picture time. Shrimp are doing great! They are small babies right now, and pretty hard to photograph without a true macro lens. These are Pure Red Line Hinomaru No Entry Crystal Red Shrimp. Pro Packed No Color out of the box. Dripped Acclimated them for 3 hours. Colored up nicely. Old school magnifying glass in front of the camera.
  2. Lots of tiny copepods (or whatever the fresh water equivalent is) and other tiny life everywhere. Tank is really looking slick. Should be ready for shrimp soon. I'm set on getting Pure Red Line Hinomaru crystal reds and found the vendor I'm going with.
  3. Guys, I might have a problem. I keep buy shrimp food.
  4. I keep seeing this plant called subwassertang on other forums.
  5. Cloudiness is starting to clear up after adding purgin and carbon. I've been doing a lot of reading and considering going for Pure Red Line (PRL) crystal reds. It's been a little while since Ive kept dwarf shrimp but Im really looking for a challenge.
  6. Still cycling. Looking VERY cloudy today for some reason.
  7. Got my fan mounted. Seems to working well. Really like the controller.
  8. Planning on high grade crystal reds. Depending on my success I may try another tank with shadow panda.
  9. Im not quite sure as it was a hitchhicker plant I pulled from my 20g. Also not sure about the long plant in the right. The others are christmas tree moss, lacy java fern, floating duck weed, and marimo balls. Not planning on any c02 or ferts, so I hope they are hardy.
  10. Added Montmorillonite stones as well as Montmorillonite powder clay for minerals. Added a feeding dish. Added Catappa leaves and alder cones for hiding spots and ph buffering.
  11. Going to use the very affordable controller to kick on a fan when the summer starts up and we get more frugal with the house AC.
  12. These shrimp are going to be eating better than me.
  13. I miss saltwater :(

      Andrew, it is never too late to have a happy childhood. Enjoy the neocarodina for now and plan out that PERFECT salt system.

      I've got an empty Fluval 12 gallon cube sitting behind me with Ecocomplete substrate just waiting for some plants, driftwood and shrimp. As soon as I get a little time I'll set it up. Probably won't happen until after the end of the semester. In the mean time, I'm learning from your posts.  Keep the Shrimp tank build thread coming.

  14. Added a few plants I had going in my 20g. Also moved over a few sponge filters that I had seeding in the 20 gallon for about a month. Ready for my cycle!
  15. Found this really cool piece of wood at aquatek. I was warned about it floating and it was true. It's been floating at the top of a bucket for about 2 weeks. So I decided to anchor it on a piece of plastic. It worked well once to substrate was added.
