***Not an entry***



This tank full of Pure Red Line shrimp brought me the most joy of any tank. Every day I would look at it and scour around for the tiny babies and a couple shrimp which had distinctive patterns or shade of color. And every day I just was full of happiness, and when I got to look at it I felt blessed. This isn't the very best photo but you can see all over the place are PRL shrimp!

My 55g with 2 albino threadfin acara, 1 geophagus and 1 gold severum. They all like to hide except to eat. Most of my tanks, including this one, are filled with cichlids that love to dig, so I've given up on live plants and just use artificial. They love to redecorate Click image for larger version

My thoughts exactly. I wish more ppl had sent in, I was looking forward to seeing some pretty tanks. Mine are so long it was hard to get a good shot, or no room in between to get far enough away. And most of mine are filled with craters from all the digging, lol

Congratulations, charliebankston! And congratulations to your fish, who now have a budget for redecorating!


Autumn, that's a lovely shrimp tank. I am so envious of lush plants!

Thanks! Stiff competition. That shrimp tank is gorgeous. I'm envious of pretty plants like that too. The last time I put any live plant at all in my tanks, I stuck some pothos hanging in the back. Most of my fish tore it up. Some immediately, lol
