Looks great! I love the 30 longs great shrimp and Shellie tanks. I think manzanita is one of the best woods to aqua scape with. If you don't want to spend the money you can always going out and collect dead branches from hard wood trees. I just used alder branches to scape my African river black water tank.

Hey you!

The tank is doing great. Had to trim the heck out of some plants. Added a few burmese cherry loaches, and will soon be adding some clown killies and other shrimp.

Ugh, no new pictures. I've been a slacker getting pics of everything.

Looked those BCL up and they are really cool looking! And Clown Killies are sooo cute! Catfish Charlies has them periodically.

Will the Cherry Loaches eat the shrimp babies? Or not too worried with lots of reproductive activity?

I added a Reticulated Hillstream Loach in my bigger community tank and it is doing great. Your Cherry Loaches just made me think of one or two of HSL might do well in my shrimp tank... what do you think?

When I had HSLs in my river tank, they did great with the shrimp. Never had a problem with them trying to munch any. They were pretty happy with pellets and algae wafers.

I got my BCL at Aqua Imports and they always have the clown killies so I'm not worried about them no being there when I'm ready. As for the BCL and the shrimp, they might eat a few babies, but since I'm culturing my own foods now, (micro worms, banana worms and vinegar eels) they get a good feeding twice a day. I've also got them where they're starting to eat the shrimp's food. They get the cutest little bellies.

Now that would be a cute pic. I bet the new live foods are really making the fish happy.

Just read about banana worms! Never had heard of them before! Makes me less interested in eating bananas now, LOL!

Hey DragonFish71 ... I'm still in awe at that 33long!! Actually more in awe now that I got another look. It got me motivated to eventually get my 20 Long out of storage and ditch the Petco Bookshelf tank. Took me the a whole weekend to set it up and transfer each last shrimp. So many shrimplets to find and net ... it was nuts.

It's been a few months now, I did a large rearranging a few weeks back and lost a few RCS. Yep I stirred up all sorts of stuff off the substrate and did a PWC using the water changer I use on my 75gal. Guess it was all too much for some of them ... lesson learned.

I darkened the substrate with Petco Black Sand and added rocks from the Adirondack Region during Spring Break. There's one of my berried Tiger Shrimp with an RCS nearby.

Jcolon,

Love the new set up! You did an awesome job.

You should have seen me catching all my RCS out of the 10 they were in, it was a madhouse.
