    SHRIMP!!! Otherwise you will most likely find me playing videogames, listening to music or doing something with photography but on a more relevant note I love shrimp! They are so much fun to watch and the different colors and patterns fascinate me.

    Future Breeding Dreams:

    Current Tank:
    30G Breeder (Haven't started yet, but looking forward to getting back into the aquarium hobby and will most likely try to do a journal on it's progress. Aiming for a timelapse!)

    Past Tanks:
    12g L (Female Dumbo Betta and some RCS)
    37g cull tank (Rescaped into community tank. Bloodfin Tetras, Serpae Tetras, Albino Kribensis Pair, Green Dragon Pleco, Pepper Corydoras, some remaining BKK Mischlings and Amano Shrimp)
    22g Long Trimless (mix of TBs and Tigers)
  • Inverts You Keep
    Nothing currently, hope to get back into it!

  1. Yeah I got lucky. Worked for a LFS for 4 years and snagged it when we got it in. I did photography for the FB page and was paid in gum... I mean aquarium supplies. Not sure how I want to position it though.
  2. Decided to go with Brightwell Escuro-F and Escuro-M. Got a couple 23# bags online as I don't have any LFS near me that sells it. Figured it would give a good acidic PH, but not too crazy for any fish I may add. I will still need more substrate for the depth I want, but unsure if I will go for more Brightwell or section off some areas for pebbles/sand for a different look. I am also testing my luck with a couple pieces of spider wood online. Here's hoping they aren't duds.
  3. Thanks! One of the few things I kept before "quiting". Not 100% sure yet what I want to stock. My current thoughts are CRS or other relatively easier caridina shrimp and maybe some small fish. The tank will be more of a planted tank with fish and hopefully shrimp. If the shrimp breed that's awesome, but not the goal. Although with that in mind, I'm in turmoil whether I want to add a slightly larger fish like an apistogramma or ram pair because I don't want anything to bother or eat baby shrimp if they do breed.

  4. I'm finally getting back into aquarium keeping, woo! I got myself a 30g breeder and I'm excited to start setting it up over the next couple months. I will post as many pictures here as I can throughout the process. My ultimate goal is to get a timelapse after it's set up and planted. I also want to have shrimp in there eventually, but I'm unsure of which and what fish I may want to put in there. I'm leaning towards caridina as my current substrate of choice is the Brightwell Rio-Escuro F, but I'm not 100% tied down to it. So far all I have is the tank, a large piece of wood I've forgotten the name of (been out of the hobby for 3 years and I've forgotten a lot of stuff already), some random wood pieces, half a bag of Amazonia and a small ziplock of either Amazonia or Brightwell Escuro. Finding wood/rocks during the pandemic has been problematic so it will probably be a while before I can get everything set up and cycling. I also plan on building a custom stand for the tank with the help of some family members (they got the tools!). Should be a fun learning experience. If anyone knows the name of the large piece of wood and how you think I should display it in the tank please let me know!
  5. I did this for a while with a small pump and the eheim canister tube hook and it was great. The water did come in pretty quick (even from a distance) so I shoved a prefilter sponge on the end of the tube hook to slow/disperse the flow.
  6. Hey Shrimp Spot! Been a while since I've been here, but was looking to get back into aquarium keeping. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a place online to buy a betta? I don't have any LFS beside Petsmart/Petco near me and I'd like a better variety of bettas to choose from. The pull is strong, but I want to dip my feet back in before I fall off the deep end.
  7. It's been awhile since I've been on the forums. Hey guys! Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but the crested family has grown! I now have 4 crested geckos and the 3 skinks are still alive and kickin'. I don't have good pictures of the lizards at the moment, but the crested's tank is looking way better since last. I also had to upgrade the little ones tank as it's gotten big!
  8. ??? oh god..... it's an addiction!!!! But they're just so darn cute Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. Going off of the small amount I've read from your Shrimp Chronicle (I'll read it in full when I get home). Since you're having issues with setting up tripods for shots (WHY WON'T THEY HOLD STILL) how much have you tried shooting handheld? Also as a side note, if those are what I think they are above your tank, I like the external flash set-up!
  10. Thanks! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  11. Yes they are! Well it is obvious that the large one is eating the Repashy. Unless he is just walking through it every time I make it new lol. Harder to tell with the little one, but there is poop in its tank so I think it is safe to say it is eating. I have been putting a few small crickets in the tank every other week just in case though and it eats them.
  12. Hey guys. Been a little while, but thought I would update. Finally had some time to take some photos today. Which means my big guy (now named Koopa) was actually out and about and I had my camera nearby. Both are doing well. Mostly hide, but I can't blame them for that. http://imgur.com/a/UvJ2l
  13. Very cute! I can't wait until my Cresties get warmed up to me holding them. It is fun having the hatchling hop from hand to hand tho -Duffy
