I like neons too, but cardinals are better.

Neons by comparison look like they ran out of red halfway through.

Wow nice, love the branches. Notice you dont have strainers on the intake pipes for your (eheim?) filters? Did you have trouble with shrimp disappearing?

This is my tank before it all started growing in etc. I've since removed the rush and re-arranged the Anubias nana petites and given the moss rock central position to the left. Will update photos when my Camera gets fixed. Cheers

Wow, I love looking at what others have done with their shrimp tanks (and rooms).

Here is my CRS tank, its a 45cm cube with UpAqua Shrimp Sand. Its pretty plain I know and I should have cleaned the front glass. It used to have a lot of java moss but it all started to go brown so I pulled it out.

After speaking with dean I have just cleaned out another 45cm cube and set it up again. However this time I have used benibachi a made sure to use a much thicker layer. Just waiting for the cycle to finish before I add anything to the tank, hopefully it will be done in a few days as the media was already well seeded.

They are nothing to look at compared to all of the tanks in this thread, I prefer my tanks to be simple with only one or two kinds of moss and a few places for the shrimp to hide.

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon
    • Goshio22
      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
