I retract my previous statement: apparently I do have a male tiger shrimp. I can't figure out which one he is, since every shrimp I can find seems to be saddled, but 2 of my females are berried now so they have to be breeding with somebody. o_O'
It turns out I have a 2nd baby CPO after all - the male and legless female are both isolated right now (one to recover and one to prevent cray-icidal rampaging), and I thought there was only 1 baby left (also a male), but today I spotted another, much smaller one that I'm hoping will turn out to be a female. I think this one's from the second batch of eggs, since it's too small to be from the first. Crossing my fingers in hopes that I can keep breeding CPOs without investing in new stock... they ain't cheap.
Have also obtained yellow and blue pearl Neocaridina. Meanwhile, I've begun trying to sell off my army of cherry shrimp and livebearers on Aquabid... those wild mollies I brought back from Florida have produced fry... already... and lots of them.
I'm contemplating what kind of shelving unit I should obtain for my latest plot to set up a rack of 5g/10g tanks... anybody have any suggestions? A 48" width unit would have to be able to hold something like 400lbs per shelf (if it were to support 2 10g on each side, assuming a 24" depth - or, I could get narrower units and put 2 of them back to back at a rate of 200lbs/shelf.
Alternatively, I can buy a pile of 2x4s and poke His Manliness into building something. This may prove the be the most cost-effective route, though also the lengthiest, as His Manliness has a very short attention span and will invariably find 18000000 distractions along the way.
