    Here's how they look now...





    This one is the largest baby (around half the size of an adult now)

    Great shots!

    We had a bunch of babies a month and a half ago, 2 batches!

    Pretty fun to watch them grow.

    Cheers
    I think I want a bigger tank!!

    They're looking good!! I always liked the tree in this tank. Too bad it had to go... I'm sure you will figure something out to take it's place...

    Looking nice, the plants seem to be doing well. I see them pearling.

    Cheers. The pearling is only down to the fact that I did a 70% water change about an hour before taking this shot. Everything is covered in bubbles after a change and I often tap the plants with a bamboo stick a few times to dislodge them. The next day there won't be any bubbles.

    I'm really pleased with the boost in growth from the Alternanthera (the pink plant). It has shot up since the tree went due to the increase in light access.

    Quick update. I'm still losing the odd shrimp here and there which is frustrating so I've made a few changes to see if it improves matters:

    1. I've removed the plastic frame from inside the filter (that the felt mat was wrapped around) and put in some Sera bioballs in a net to fill the space that was previously taken up by the plastic frame. I wrapped the felt back around it and crammed it back into the cradle. Filter flow is as it was before and hopefully will culture a larger stock of bacteria (in case that was my issue).
    2. I've halved the dosing of EasyCarbo and ferts after advice from my LFS.
    3. I've switched shrimp food. I was using Hikari "Shrimp Cuisine" but was a little alarmed that the ingredients included copper. The new Sera feed I have now doesn't include copper.

    Hopefully this may reduce or stop my death rate.

    The growth rate has been impressive since I introduced an additional light to this set-up:

    Bushy Alternanthera


    Needs thinning more again I think


    Grass still looks quite poor though - I might give it a trim soon (it grows painfully slowly now, I do wonder if the substrate has become much less rich)

    You may or may not be able to make this little beastie out, but I have a baby peppered corydoras in the shrimp tank!



    It hatched from an egg that must have been on a plant cutting from my big tank. Sweet little thing.
