Wow dude, that's a serious butt load of RCS, well done. I'd hate to be the one separating & grading them, it's gonna take hours, lol :encouragement:

Won't be sorting the whole lot as they are all shrimp lets from my program and coming up pretty good so it's more of a while I'm looking at the tank and spot one it will be added apart from that they'll all be used to colonise my tubs after I sell my e.blue colony as the melanogenys and cyps won't have too much of a drastic effect on their numbers.

the tank is an 8x2x2&2/3 my display tank but since I moved in to a house on piers it won't be going inside. Have to still clean and sterilise the filter before I plumb it back up so just threw all the shrimp lets in to grow up. With all that space im hoping they should also get a bit more size to them faster as well as over all size.

So I had a battle with green water and finally got my new pump in to help fix the problem. After a couple weeks the water has cleared up enough to present to you this next clip. Unfortunately the plants had suffered a bit from lack of light and the home made air driven filters are still in for a couple more weeks while the new filter colonises.

That has cleared up from when I last saw it mate. Gotta be happy with that. How do the peps in there look?

Pepps are around 2ft long... You must have over looked them as they're so big from all the algae they've been feeding on! Lol. Theyre all around 7-8cm now, one out the back in a crevice and a couple under the air drivens. Really don't know what happened to the others. They may still be in there. Will have to do a spotlight mission to confirm numbers.

will put a better clip up soon

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
