Crystal Red baby pics

Image
Finally! The first baby photos of the Crystal Red babies. I especially like the 3rd pic for scale... look on the skeleton of an Indian Almond leaf directly above the adult shrimp. the green plastic leaf is pointing right at him. :)

The Assassin Snails have been busy

Image
See those little square sacks on the plant and in the holes in the gear on the aquarium decoration? Guess what those are... Assassin snail eggs.

There are 2 adults and a rarely seen young one in this tank, with our Betta and I picked up 3 more for another tank but it looks like we may have a bunch of little ones in the near future. I guess I've been keeping them well fed.

Checking in on the Blue Velvets

Image
I guess it's been a little while since I last showed my Blue Velvet tank.
They are doing really well.
8 months in and the colony has really grown from the original 10 despite a few deaths and a few giveaways.
Check out this video and see how well they are all getting on, lots of mommy shrimp in there and You'll even spot some of my red headed blues. :)

Christmas Time - Part 2

Image
At least one of the Crystal Reds likes playing in the lego tree.



...and so that the Blue Velvets weren't left out I managed to add some Christmas bling to their tank too.  :)



Happy Holidays everyone,

-Rod and the Shrimps

Christmas time, and everyone is getting into the spirit of the season

Image
The Crystal Red Shrimp have a good old-fashioned German tanenbaum christmas tree hung upside down in their tank.





Bill has some nice little snowflake lights around the outside of this tank and some gift boxes that it seems he just can't wait to see opened.


...and we've hung up a stocking for him. 

no decorations on the Blue Velvet tank yet, but they are busy.  Last count at a feeding time a few days ago there were nearly a dozen berried mommy shrimp in there. They are expecting quite a few new years babies. :)
