Thank you! I will be posting more pics of the tank and shrimp as they progress. I am filling in the rest of the tank space with more plants, so it will get more and more lush.


PS - It's a she :D and she is berried which means she is holding a clutch of eggs :D

*giggle* I swear that was a typo! It happens often enough, even with my mad post editing skills! Heh.

Lush is always good (when we're talking about tanks, anyway!), everything looks amazing. . .

I'll hopefully be keeping shrimp for the first time in the not-too-distant future, so please do keep posting! I love learning through the experiences and tanks of others. . . and never tire of watching tanks grow from set up into forever - this one is swoon-worthy! ^_^

Setup the light on my hang on breeder. Nice! It is bright, I hope it doesn't cause a ton of algae growth since Im not dosing fertz or CO2 (just root tabs).

I just threw together what I had available right now.
-Black Sand
-Osmocote root fert capsules
-E. tellenus
-M. Minuta
-R. rutondifolia
-L. Arcuata x Repens
-tiny bits of xmas, taiwan, pellia, and java moss

I will be keeping my eye out for some new shrimp/plant substrate, maybe tiny driftwood or tiny seiryu stones, and super micro size plants. I'd like it to basically be a Nano tank :D

Update on the berried females, they both have dropped!(sortaaa)

Female #1 dropped her shrimplets just fine in the main tank and I occasionally see one (hard to find them in a 40g lol), but I will start seeing them when they get a little bigger.
Female #2 had an issue, I decided to move her to the hang on breeder I have as I could tell she was due to drop any day (i kinda wanted to be able to see the babies grow better in a smaller tank). She started dropping them this morning and I have about 5, but I guess she was over the whole motherhood thing and decided to molt with about 10-15 eggs still unhatched :( I removed the sticky stuff that holds them together from her molt and have placed them gently on some moss that is in direct flow of the incoming water. I was wondering if the other shrimp would go for them, but I haven't seen anything do more than walk over the eggs and touch them for a second and move on. We shall see what happens! You can even see their eyes, and knowing that some already hatched means that they should hatch any moment as well.

Wow... that is really wild. I've never heard of that happening.

But I can tell you I recently had success hatching eggs without the mother, so I hope you do, too!!
