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:

The shrimpletes are too hard to photograph so here is a berried mumma

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:

      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.
