So yup I got a few shots, the color is really starting to pop on my shrimp already Smile

They really love the java moss around the air bubbles it's fun to watch them swim in it and play in the moss


Look at how bright red they've gotten! They've been doing a lot of growing I've found a lot of molting shells the last few days Smile


The moss is starting to green up WHEW that's a relief, looks like I got some willow moss here well I'm hoping that's what it is at least I was surprised to get it, got it at a LFS labelled as java moss


And the full tank shot

Thanks xD

The moss seems to be greening back up after its harrowing experience at the Lfs

Looks great Drew, It's difficult to capture with a camera just how many shrimp can hang around, I know Wink.

Yea I need to find my digital camera somewhere that has macro and all that good stuff so I can get some awesome shots Laughing

As for how many, I'm not sure, I know they've been molting a lot lately though, I'm finding shrimp skins all over the place think

Yeah? I find plenty of shrimp moltings too, it's pretty common I think. Not sure if it's bad to leave them or not.

Well overdue for an update here....not too many pictures I'm tired and not feeling super zoomy but I thought I'd share how lifes going for the RCS Smile

As you can see below the mosses are exploding quite well Smile The pennywort which is trimmed back actually was all through the tank I had about 4 6-10 leaf node portions that I gave away to my friend, the shrimp although you can't see them are getting quite big and I should be close to doing something with that moss soon, the moss on the left is willow moss and the moss on the right is java moss (except on the cholla in the right corner that's willow moss as well)



The shrimp are all hiding on the back piece of the driftwood, but rest assured they are getting quite big, they are pretty tricky to try to get a picture of though ><

So the shrimp were feeling slightly more photogenic this morning Smile


Here's hoping they start to berry soon!



And I wanted to share with you guys a bit of a closer up difference in the two types of moss that I have in the tank.

Update:

I saw a shrimp with berries (I'm almost 95% sure) but she wasn't carrying them....

Before I could get my camera she and the eggs were gone into the jungle of moss in this tank
