Well, lo and behold, here it is.....looks kinda tacky right now with the big filters and such, but I think that over time, when the plants grown and fill in, it will look better.....

The particulars:

Lighting: Not exactly sure about lighting, but the wattage adds up to 25 watts. It's a dual-bulb fixture.

Filtration: I am running two filters - Tetra Whisper 2-10i internal filter (85 gph) and an ATI hydro sponge filter #3.

Plants: Large amount of hornwort, a couple stems of anacharis, some guppy grass strewn around the tank, 2 Java Ferns, 1 small portion of Java Moss, 1 small portion of Mini Christmas Moss, a decent amount of Frogbit and Red-Root floaters.

Inhabitants: I bought 12 painted fire red shrimp to start off with, and two came berried. One is already giving birth, she has given birth to at least 7 shrimplets already .

Now, the pictures


Full tank shot:



From left to right: Guppy Grass, Mini Christmas Moss, Anacharis



Frogbit



And some of the shrimp

Thanks!

Rams will not only thin the herd, they will basically demolish the herd. They can be kept with larger shrimp such as amanos or bamboo shrimp, but dwarf shrimp like RCS is a no-no. The ram will quickly gobble them up. A good way to get rid of some shrimp is by selling them. Not only will it thin the herd, it will get you a bit of money

That's the problem,I can't sell them in my area...the lfs's around me won't buy from private entities...guess I could find some buyers on the forum,but have no idea of how to ship em..I literally have hundreds of shrimp(cherry&rcs)on about the 4th or 5th generation...

Ha.ha. I'm in the same boat. I just tried to take a out of the baby shrimp ... Best I could get was near 40. Did I mention the previous 20 on top of the 40 .. Oh and at least two berried shrimp.
