So I know I said I was going to update this with weekly plant growth, but it's really not that fast. I do see growth, tho. Slow but steady. Unfortunately I've had some shrimp die off, but I think it was from old age. These guys were pretty big when I got them. At least my babies are doing fine and showing color already!



Because I'm down to so few adult shrimp right now (and I only have one confirmed female) I'm ordering some more shrimps. But just like my tetra in my 29, they won't be here until next week. The seller ships all orders on Tuesdays to avoid lots of trips to the post office.

Yes it will! But there are actually a lot of shrimps in there now; you just can't see them. My camera is still too small to pick them up, tho. But at least they are showing color! One serious count gave me about 20 little babies.

The population is small enough that they can find food on their own right now, but about once a week I give them 1/4 of an algae tablet (Omega One). When the new guys come in later this week, I'll up it to twice a week. As the population grows, I will have to feed more. Red cherries are really not fussy when it comes to food.

Ahh okay so since I have plenty of algae going on in my Puffer tank where mine are at and I only have 10 I don't really need to worry about adding anything extra? Maybe a small sinking pellet once a week?

I'd just let them pick up after the puffer and eat the algae. When you get like 100 in there, you'll probably need to start throwing a sinking pellet or two their way every week. I never fed mine when they were in the 29 with the loaches. They just ate the leftover food.

I don't leave left overs from the puffers as I use a pipette to feed him one worm at a time. That way there are no uneaten worms to foul the water. So maybe let one or 2 get away through out the week.
