Well Jason, it's been a month now. Do you have any photos to share of your shrimp tank?

I called him today. College is keeping him busy and out of trouble. He said that he saw some of the Cherry Red Shrimp with berries. Very good sign!

that's good to know, I'm staying low key too, and pushing in the speed control knob I went low tech, got some crypt lutla in my tank now. just need to get the c02 hook up right, and find some nice fast growing fore ground. would like some dwarf hair grass.

I had a tank I've been battling green water from phosphate spike, I left it with co2 on. It got so dense that visabilty was only three inches (pea soup). With it clearing up, my dwarf hair grass has turned into a dense carpet. Next time we meet, if you don't have any, I'll give you some plugs. I also got dwarf sagisteria that forms a nice forground spread. Plant a few plugs, add a dash of love and BAM! You got a nice forground plant. I still haven't checked on the giant hair grass, I'm sure its doing well.

I got some chain sword/dwarf sag from howard(txaquagardens it did well in the 125 then started to melt, then I moved it over to the 55g and it's melted. there is one guy one here randy I think that's his name who has 6x6 carpets of dwarf hair grass for trade for shrimp. to bad I don't have any shrimp.
also how do I plant the crypts. since they are not stem plants, do i just tie them around a rock, or driftwood?

i've been letting that tank just go and see what happens... the stem plants i put in there really need to be trimed lol i also put almost all of my mosses in there and they are doing well. there is algae all over the glass but it seems the shrimp are loveing that lol. i am about to start another 10g tank spefically for a school project. it is one of my dreams to have an ADA scaped tank instead of just something random so i am in the planning stages of that now.
