    Plants:

    Anubias barteri var. nana 'Petite'
    Bucephalandra Brown Sugar
    Bucephalandra Brownie blue

    Just wanted to update with a few pictures of some new shrimp I added. They were purchased from shrimpfever (thanks Bobsidd for organizing the group buy). Enjoy!

    Great tank, Matt. The shrimp look great in there. Hopefully lots of baby BKK in your future.

    Thanks! I hope all your shrimp are doing well too. I am starting up a new shrimp tank soon to separate male mischlings in the future.

    Another update: just bought some wine red shrimp for the tank and took a few pictures. Enjoy!

    Those are absolutely beautiful wine reds you got there. Where did you get them from and how much? Also, arent you worried about cross breeding? I thought you would get mischlings if they breed together, but I'm not an expert breeder.

    Thanks! I got them from Aquariums West for 3 for $50. I'm not worried about cross-breeding, just hoping they breed! When mischlings are produced I will separate male mischlings and keep female mischlings in the tank to breed with the Taiwan bees and hope my luck is good so I can get more Taiwan bees. When I have a decent colony of Taiwan bees I will likely keep just the same types together for more selective breeding.
