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.

      I have just done the planned weekly maintenance and 10% water change and everything 'seems' to be going very well, I saw 12 blue and 9 panda shrimps so am very happy about that as there are always some hiding (and they are small) so there must be more than that at this point. Early days yet (especially with the off parameters) with the blues only been in the tank for a week and the pandas for 2 weeks. Not seen any dead ones yet and the shrimp seem happy enough and beautiful colour and pattern, all small so must be young! Parameters were TDS 159, GH 7-8, KH 1-2, PH 7 yesterday so still a bit off the usual ideal! Hopefully these figures come down slowly in time, I used pure RO water for the water change so Tds should drop 10. I will get a different PH test kit with a narrower range/increments as the one I have measures in .5 increments over a wide range which is probably a bit much. I bought these shrimp because the sellers parameters (PH 6.8) were the closest to mine so hopefully it will work out long term. I changed my zerowater filter as well, as the old one was measuring TDS 6 so passed its best. I will definitely overnight drip acclimate shrimp in the future, not that I plan any more in the forseeable future. I will add/edit photo when available, hopefully later today.

      All done now, I drip acclimated 11 blue bolts and 6 blue steel overnight and they are now in the tank so now is just wait and see if this works. 28 shrimps have now been put in and I have yet to SEE a dead one so fingers crossed! A couple of pictures of some below; I don't plan on buying any more shrimp so plan this to be a blue shrimp tank, though if it doesn't work out I have seen some female bettas I would like, but hopefully the shrimps will work out. The water parameters are still the same as before, so a bit off! I need to sort out what foods and shrimp stuff I have in the drawers and cupboard tomorrow as it's been a while, hopefully I find a shrimp lolly so I can give them one/part of those tomorrow, and it may bring as many of the shrimps out as possible.  Fingers crossed everyone...........
