So far i've had one "hatching" of new shrimplets and the tetras completely ignored them :p. Besides, someoen has to keep the populations down :p

It's looking good! I'm jealous of your HC in the foreground. I still have not tried it again after loosing 5 pots worth on my first go 'round.

Those shrimp look great!

Dave, thats your christmass moss on the left side :p
I'm glad it's doing well for you. I just removed the rest of mine from my driftwood and tied it to a rock. I've got some fissidens growing out that will eventually take it's place on the wood.
