CRS/CBS Tank


CBS






CRS


Yellow Shrimp Tank





Red Rilli Tank


CPD Breeding tank - new technique i'm attempting

This idea/tank was scrapped since they didnt seem to breed to while in it. I think the envrioment stressed them out and wasn't relaxed enough for them.
This tank now has substrate and my pumpkins. One possibly two is full of eggs and the babys probably wouldn't make it in the community so they have their own tank for now. its also being used as my "egg" tank to dump my breeding traps into. I'm up to about 7 fry after dumping the traps into the tank every few days. Ill post some new pics of these in the next few days.

I tried the yarn mop myself when I bred lemon tetras. It didn't really work well for me, and I didn't like the tiny threads of yarn that it let out. But many breeders use yarn mops so I hope it works for you.

Beautiful pics. I love the one of the CRS especially.

Thank ya!

Sadly the berried yellow is the one that bit the dust.

Breeding mops - This round i made 2 breeding traps, one with yarn, 1 with java moss. So i will see what one works better in a few days!

I will get some better shots with the slr later.. but a couple quick cell phone shots of what the breeding tank (now egg and freshly hatched fry tank looks like)




It's always so exciting to find new fry. I think I'm upto 11 or 12 :)

I re-did two of the tanks on the weekend with ADA and some lovely spare plants (thanks greenfin!)
They are currently leeching ammonia and doing their thing... They will end up being CRS/CBS tanks for a little culling /selective breeding... or.. TIBEE tanks if my OEBTS and Crystal happen to get down before the OEBT tank is ready for them.

The tanks still need lots of love but here's a few quick cell phone shots of the workshop tanks in their current state :) ... And yes half need some rescaping. Soon to be back to shrimp and CPD city :)

new CBS*


Old CBS tank... may use it for culls.. tbd.


Old tank for CPDs, assain snails and dario darios (since they were eating to many shrimp in another tank)


The new CRS tank


The Bucket pond.. originally purchased to keep my waterfall plants alive over winter is now home to a bunch of pumpkins and CPDs
