Yayy got my yellow shrimps!!!

The yellows came today and they are all PERFECT! every single one survived and so many of the females are berried! They are soooo vibrant and vividly yellow, they are just GORGEOUS!

I put them into the 10 gallon setup for them, but it'[s not remotely setup fully yet ... I ran out of substrate and so can't successfully plant anything and have it stay down ... so it's all floating for now. :\

Ah well - the important thing is that the shrimps like it right? lol.

OMG! My shrimps might be mating ... he he he!

Well I *thought* I saw a molt in the back of my 2g nano yesterday and today the majority of the shrimps are going NUTS flying around the tank! I am thinking that might be a good sign! :)

I took a few plants out of this tank and added them to the 7g bowfront and then took the poor crypt that looked like it didn't like as much light as it was getting to the "dark tank" at work. I did plant it where the sun hits the water during the day ... and hope it will like living there better.

I am also getting some shrimps next week that I am SOOO excited about! I will be getting a small bunch of the orange eyed blue tiger shrimps and a small bunch of yellow shrimp next week so trying to get their tanks all ready for them!

2 gallon nano planted!

So still no idea what to do in terms of a scape design, but this is where the tank is at now.

The guppies are to help cycle the tank and will not be permanent tenants.
