here my only tank, I guess it classifies as a shrimp tank as it has shrimp in it :p

Will be viewed front on and side on from the bed.

Quality of scape and shrimp is pretty average compared to what I see around here, but its my first real attempt at aquascaping and the first time I've had any shrimps so its a start :)

Looks awesome amkr. Love the scape, especially the cave/river/road in the middle.

Awesome first attempt dude, you've really got a flair for scaping, that river bed & cave looks like it's been there for thousands of years, can't wait to see your next effort :victorious:

Cheers guys.

I'm interested to see how the CRS survive the tank, they seem happy enough at the moment. If they do okay in the water then I'll look at adding a few males in to seed the population.

Just saw this picture.... 3-4g running all these breeders...

Now I am thinking about tearing down my 2 foot, and covering it in breeder boxes.

Only thing that stops me is the noise of these. There has to be a quieter, and simpler way.

You may be able to run the breeder boxes with a customised spray bar on a powerhead, possibly quieter than air-driven. Personally I'd be afraid of so many boxes breaking even a bigger tank. I'm planning to make a large divided box for inside the tank with a spraybar.

      The tanks are only 16L, for it to reach 31c, it isn't hard.
    • jayc
      Sorry to hear that.  Wow, the temperature must have been very hot for the water to get to 31degC.

      It's room temperature, during the past week Hong Kong has become an oven. I will get another water cooler before I start again. The 3 shrimps seems to be doing well for the past 11 hrs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Well, what can I say, de ja vu, was it a heater malfunction or just ambient room temperature? I wouldn't hold out too much hope for the 3 survivors either if my experience was anything to go by - but I will keep my fingers crossed they survive! Really sorry to hear the news and if anyone can feel your pain that would be me. Hopefully you can just remove the cooked shrimps and start again without having to go through the whole process of re-setting up the tank and cycling from scratch like I am? Hope everything is going well with the old tank. The shops sound similar to ours in old towns, they started as houses and then get divided to shops street level and basement and the upper floors are either offices or residential. Simon

      update, some upsetting new, all shrimps except 3 has died in the new tank, as the water in the tank went upto 31 celcius, the other 3 was half dying, I put them into the old tank, and seem to be ok for now.
