Just caught up with this thread, and I was wondering about how to lower your PH. Have you thoughts about making like a blackwater extract from oak/IAL and adding that to the tank?

I dunno if it would work or not, but it's something I've seen here and there in my aimless internet wanderings xD

Anyways, your shrimp are so cute! The tank is looking gorgeous :) Looks much bigger than 10 gallons.

Thanks, guys! I'm so happy with this newest development. I really thought I was going to watch a molt in action today, but that was not to happen. I expect to see another berried female in the next couple of days.

Jen, I've thought about making my own. The oak tree I have out back produce a really good blackwater, but I don't want the tannins in this tank. I have stems and want them to grow which they won't do well with the blackwater. Right now I feel like I have a good system going. I tested the pH and it was down to 7.5 today!

Haha! I'm actually waiting on a *gasp* new camera!! :o I was promised one for my birthday, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get better pictures when it gets here. As for text updates not much has changed with the little shrimpies. The population is steadily growing now. I just wanna get a new camera and play around with better macro settings!!!

*ish sooooo jealous!* My camera is ancient. Well, my HUSBAND'S camera is ancient. Mine finally died a few months ago. You are gonna have SO MUCH FUN with a new cam. Not that you NEED one to take better pictures. Your shots are always great! I'll be waiting as patiently as I can. . . *fidgets*

Glad to hear they're doing well in there, though :) Three cheers for shrimp!

SO! As promised here are some new photos!! I'm still learning the new camera so these aren't the best, but I like them and how the tank has progressed.

Love your floaters, and congrats on getting the eggs to hatch! I love shrimp.

I love my own shrimp tank. I understand your frustration about loosing larger ones early one. Especially when they look that sharp and vivid.
