Thanks everyone! It's been a long journey getting here, but the trip isn't over yet. I've added a homemade reflector (some tin foil lol), and that has given me much greater plant growth, but I still want my dwarf sag to carpet the bottom. The moss has done amazingly, tho! I've already had to trim it back once. Not to mention I want then entire tank crawling with chrimps! :3 I gotta play with my macro settings more and see what other pictures I can get of the little devils.

Inspired by your tank, I added a feeding dish to my shrimp tank and so far, so good. Not only do I have more surviving shrimp than I thought (11-12) but it's allowed me to decimate the scud population since they're so easy to suck up once they're in the dish. I also think it's cutting down on the seed shrimp.

Thanks for the idea!

You are very welcome! But I can't take credit for the idea. I got it from some serious shrimp keepers on another forum. I can't imagine a shrimp tank without one now. It's so much easier to count the shrimps as well as see who is berried or saddled.

I had a slight snail problem before I got the dish. One night I put a bunch of food in there and just picked up the dish with over half of the snail population in there. BAM. No more snail problem.

I have one enormous ramshorn in my shrimp tank and one or two pond snails, but nothing major - I can definitely see that being a plus though!!

The shrimp tank is actually getting a few new denizens today. On top of the fish I ordered for my 29, the seller (who is amazing BTW) also had Sakura reds up for grabs. I got 10 or so of those. They all look female which is wonderful.

Well since you asked, let me put up the video I took. I kinda ramble in it and it's pretty shaky but I was testing out my new camera. Turns out videos are like 9000x easier than pictures.

You read right. I do have a colony of regular old red cherries in with my remaining betta. I bought them back in July before I went away to the beach. Neither betta (I had two in the divided tank at the time) was eating well and I thought a little live prey would help them bound back. When my last betta dies I'm breaking down the tank and putting the cherries in the 29. I guess since I don't actually have a betta thread the news didn't really come out anywhere but in personal correspondence.

And now the video. Pardon my nasally voice. I was stuffed up when I recorded it.

Shrimp are such neat critters, lol. I love them! Thanks for the video - looks like they're doing really well! *ish happy* I'm amazed at your camera - can't believe it focus so well on such tiny little things! Been a rough autumn for allergies here (if that's what caused your stuffiness) I hope you're feeling better now?
