What kind of sponge are you using. The cylindrical Fluval one or the rectangular AquaClear one? If is the latter, then the pore size is too big to stop them. If it's the former, then I don't know.

Spent a bunch of time cleaning out the containers of tank liquid and muck from the shrimp substrate and getting it clean for the new tank set up for the TT shrimp. Looking forever in each cup and tub to make sure I didn't get any baby shrimp.

Sunday I actually found about 5 extra shrimp I didn't end up catchin in the tank.

"Loachie" (new Clown Loach), as the little child who held him and handed his container to me named him, seems to be doing well. He ate well last night - two kinds of food. Likes to hide under the Spiderwood next to the rock.

The BV and TT shrimp survived another night in their plastic tubs.

Added water to the tanks for evap.

Last night found a nice red shrimp from the Chocolate Cherry shrimp tank was dead and being eaten by other hungry shrimp.

It was bright red and it had bright blue shell underneath and on the side sorta like if it was a Rili pattern. Red white and blue shrimp! I never saw the blue before (maybe it just hid so I never saw this one) so not sure if developed after death or what...very curious.

My shrimp substrate is in, the tank is the Mr. Aqua 11.7G but it is cloudy. Acclimating the TT shrimp now, adding a few things from the old tank. I already drained out the water and added water over again still cloudy but not as cloudy. humpf.

Get good ones. Even stressed they are beautiful orange jewels. Had some setbacks this year with them, but really like them. Here they were in May when I got them, just out of the bag. No good recent pics.



Not liking how cloudy the water is still on the new tank btw - don't have the filter on yet though.

Just one clown loach?

My zebra loaches love our spiderwood too Funny thing about loaches and driftwood- they like to squeeze themselves into tight spaces in the wild as much as in our tanks. Local people actually catch loaches for the hobby by putting loach-sized notches in driftwood and throwing it into a shallow spot in the river. When they go back a while later the notches will be full of loaches too wedged in to get away quickly

Wired up a couple temperature controllers I picked up from flea-bay , 10 bucks a piece and they work excellent , can run either cooling fans if I ever need them as well as my heaters. Only thing I do not like is they read in C and not F , but I can live with that.

Other discus isn't gonna make it. I'm worried about the tank but can't cancel the order, It's too late. I would be even more worried if my other fish are acting strange but they aren't and are chowing down on algae. I think it was the long term effects if the goldies as Poppa had told me.
