Just keep the light low :) and keep on top of maintenance, don't do anything special for it really. During the time the anubias have been in the tank it has not been dosed that much, I have been dosing some DIY TPN+ over the past month due to seeing the ferns struggling a little.

Lovely shrimp Paulo I'm jealous :thumbup: . My plan of action is to sell off/give away my lower grade babies and get some higher grades off Shrimp King to improve the genepool. Don't know if you wanted to be my guinea pig and take some off my hands for free, I've never posted shrimp before so don't know how they travel so didnt want to charge. I'm not sure you would want my A/B grades mixing with your nice new S's though :lol:

Cheers, I will not be mixing lower grades with these ones, to see if they breed as it is, they also have the wine red gene in them, so if they breed I might get lucky and have some wine reds in there ;)

This is a real nice setup. I want to do a shrimp tank someday. Those new little specimens are super-cute.
Thanks, I am very happy with the shrimp also :) you should go for a shrimp setup in one of your ripariums, would look great and its the ideal setup for them also, low tech, plenty of cover, just use plenty of mosses underwater and thats it ;)

Nice Tank. I like moss and looks nice and healthy.

"At the moment dosing 5ml of each twice a week."

You dosing 5ml twice a week Easycarbo ? I just wonder, how i know this chem gone after 24h from water or not ?
Or You divide 10ml by weekly days ?

Best Regards,

I hope they breed too, I have been trying for a while without much luck, might have been due to my laid back approach to tank maintenance, now I will keep on top of it and see what happens.

Cheers mate, no cherries for sale at present, I had a little accident a few weeks ago that killed 200 of my best cherries :( so not I had to start from what I had left, doing some more selective breeding so maybe soon enough will have some.

I am not dosing Easycarbo in this tank any longer, and haven't done so in a long time, I am only dosing EI all in one solution from JamesC recipe. I dose the tank 2 or 3 times a week about 10ml each time.

Nice one :) if they are as good as the ones I received you will be very happy with them, unfortunately due to an accident with the filter I lost 4-5 of these great speciemens, lets hope the remaining breed.

Just tie them down to the wood with some cotton thread or super glue them ;) some mosses will attach themselves to the wood after some time, but not all mosses do, a great one to attach to wood is the Fissidens.
