Thanks Matmatmat, these are my first since my Red Cherries so super exciting . The Rilis have another 4 girls to go the first only had 3 babies that I can see but they are masters at hiding. The chocolates have 1 more girl berried due later this week. Hopefully there is more than 1 baby though. Good luck with yours

They are all where they are staying and I only use a piece of airline and a syringe to suck out the left over foods. i'm getting better!!! Only tank getting changed is the 30" just ordered some soil from Dean and will set it up properly for my second crystal tank!! The boys are going into cube 2 and the 34 litre with the rilis for now. The michlings will get the better home!!!! I'm getting ready to move on:victorious: The babies are due in a fortnight but don't know who Dad is!

im thinking just halving with the sponge have been trying to source the filter sponge in a big enough sheet. Now I've ordered one that I was going to use as a mezzanine in the tank but as I'm changing that tank I could use that piece to split it. TThanks Ninja I had completely forgotten about that if the sponge I ordered is thick enough to stand up I will order more and can do a three way later:encouragement:

Not later Ineke, too much dust, have to do it at the same time or not at all. Baby TBs won't like dust.

TB's what TB's my michling probably mated with a CRS or CBS. The TB's are a way away yet!!! However I will have to find a local shop that sells filter sponge then. It needs to be 30 cm wide by 47 cm tall and so far haven't seen any. Tried Clark Rubber but everything they sell has been treated except for the air conditioner sponge but that wont last long in water.

Might have to go aquarium shop hopping on Tuesday or Wednesday and see what I can find as you say I should do it now and also look into filtration. JohnH is not having luck with a UG filter with shrimp soil so will have to update that as well. It would be easier with a sump wouldn't it!!!! Never mind that will come.:encouragement:

John thats a gorgeous coloured Mum. Mine are not going at all!! Squiggle is going to try and source some for me to add to mine I only have 2 girls and 3 boys so the boys will go into a male tank and I will try the new boy/boys with the girl. The couple of people I have asked about Yellows either didn't have any or they are still too small. Also nothing available locally either. Glad you are having success with yours. Yellows definitely have a presence:encouragement:

I might look on their sites and see. Otherwise will look in the local shops to get it at the same time I get the soil. The UG filter is going but I love them the water in that tank is crystal clear and it has always been a very healthy tank for fish and shrimp but it worries me if there is a power failure in case there is an ammonia spike.:encouragement:

      Those parameters are perfect! I think I experienced the same with the algae on plants when I restarted the caridina shrimp tank, but mine seems to have almost cleared up as well - taken months though. One of my failed attempts with tap water many years ago I had PRL and PBL and it did look much more interesting than just the one colour. They didn't live long enough (maybe 6 months) to really know what the offspring would look like though they will still be red crystal or black crystal  so they should be fine together. If one colour does become more dominant then you can always get some more of the lesser coloured ones anyway in the future.. I did get red babies but no babies lived very long as it was tap water! I would try transferring just some shrimps (may be a third) over to the new tank if you are sure it is cycled and see how they go in a week before transferring the rest over? You won't want too many in the tank anyway if you will be messing about with plants/layout still and you won't loose the whole lot if something does go wrong? Maybe also put the Amanos in the new tank for now so the ones in the old tank won't be fitting with them any more for food? Simon

      Update. I filled the tank, unfortunately, there was some melting of plants and some light hair algae( algae is only on the leaves of some plants, nowhere else?). Adjusted my light schedule and intensity. Things are looking better. Did a 70% water change, remineralized with GH+ powder, and clean tonight. Levels are as follows:   PH: 6.4 Temp: 75 GH: 6-7 KH: 0-1 TDS: 140   Wondering  when I should transfer the shrimps... I want to order 10-20 more CRS, and I’m considering mixing in some CBS. I’m not concerned with selling these, so it would be neat to have two different colors. I know the Black coloration is dominant, but, from what I’ve read, I’ll still get reds from offspring in two-ish generations. Someone said expect 25-30% reds. What do you guys think? My  additional plants haven’t been delivered today, so thats a bummer.

      Thanks, the ol' iPhone 6 rarely makes me happy, but if you take enough sometimes you'll get one good one!

      Nice shrimps, I like that blue bolt in the 7th photo, I want one, I also just purchased today another 8 Red Wine to join my other 3 in the tank, along with one amano shrimps and 23 thai micro crabs.
