You might remember me from such tanks as my shrimp tank


Now coming to my house no where near you, I am proud to present my new shrimp tank MK II starring 100+ cherry shrimp, Mr Crypt, the Anubias family and Mr and Mrs Moss.

Featuring 3 large aqua one sponge filters and an Aquis 1250 Canister. Guest starring Frogtbit.

Without further Ado

I can only get poor quality photos as i brought batteries for camera and they didnt even turn it on for more then 1 min lol. Stupid dick smith guy ><. I got 100 males the other day but they poor quality theni would of liked but for 40cents each.

My shrimp out of the old tank are a much better quality and i found i only had like 4-8 males in there and about 20 females of a deep red 15 or so of them being berried aswell.

I have 20 kgs of benibachi shrimp soil and 10 mineral balls sitting in a box which i brought yesterday waiting for me to move house so i can setup CBS or CRS or both. Also looking at dividing my tank at the moment somehow and buying some YcS.

i have harigrass and stuff in there aswell. Is black diamond quartz on top of some zeolite, when i move i am going to establish breeding for CRS/CBS yellow cherries and rili shrimp. Is no point using all the good stuff then having to pull it all apart.

Plus i am gonna put money aside from my tax for a chiller :)

Well my tank has changed a little bit since last time.

Some new plants and slight rescape. Also got 3 dual sponges in there seeding getting ready for my new 4ft tank which is coming divider into 3 sections. One divider being drilled with 3 40mm holes so i can keep water stable between two shrimp of same species different color. separate compartment for something else.
