Anything looks clean compared to yours MR H.:singing:
Great sense of depth youve created. Really like it. If it wasnt for the shrimp on the back glass the tank appears to go on and on. Really nice
Thank you, very kind comments............. The guilty:) shrimp has been destroyed.
Fantastic!

To be found on a ukaps Facebook page ferry shortly.
Cheers, sounds good, but what is Facebook?:eek:

That's a lovely scape.
Thanks Tim.
Hi all,
Really nice, I like the Frogbit.

cheers Darrel
Appreciated, the Frogbit has turned out really amazing, looks great around the moss, and can it grow, but so easy to keep in shape.
Really nice mate , I have the same tank.
Cheers.
Ive been very happy with the Signature Tank/cabinet and led with white brackets.
That really nice, the shrimp look fab! What sort of power and duration do you run the tile at?
Hi Garry.
The tile runs at 70%, and including the ramp up and down of 30 mins each side is on for a total of 7hrs.
I started at 45%, bringing it up gradually, over several months.
Same tank also, looks lovely, nice job and nice shrimp :)
They seem to be very popular tanks, shrimps are my own, so im very happy with them.So tame and friendly, can spend hours watching their antics.
Lovely tank fella, do you find they breed at all with co2? I appreciate that isnt the aim but curious...
Good question. But i don't know the answer, as they are not yet old enough, probably another month. It will be interesting to see if any shrimplets appear.
To keep them happy, im very careful with fertts, and CO2.
Up to now i i have only bred shrimps in dedicated tanks , with no CO2, min fert, and no fish, and as you know works well.
cheers.

I have to admit i am tempted by the TMC lights, they are nice and the brackets are very tidy.

Quick question, how do you adjust the brightness of the tile and get it to ramp up and down? Can the same be done with the TMC GroBeam 1500 Ultima Tile? The reason I ask is I'm planing on setting up the same tank but with the mentioned tile.
