    Hi there and thank you for your great post. I know it is a lot of detail but would you be able to give us some details on each tank what lighting you are using and CO2 or No CO2?

    I am especially interested in the smaller tanks that have lots of really healthy growth :)

    Again thanks for posting

    Thanks guys ..

    Sullawesi tank run without co2 and for light have 2 t8 x 18watts . ( its enough to grow cladophora) Using Ro water and Salty mineral 8.5.

    Then 10 liter wiht red cherry have a 3 watt led and a co2 . Using Ro and tap water.

    The crs tanks run without co2 and for light 1 x 28 watt t5 Using ro and salty shrimps mineral .

    The yellow shrimp tank run without co2 and for light have 1 x t5 8watt. Ro and tap water

    The 3 tanks with orange, snowball and blue pearl run wiht co2 and for light 1 x t5 28watt for three tanks. Ro and tap water

    All lighs are cheap, its osram that we use for home lighting.
    I add ferts dry when i remember. :)

    They look really good. Maybe I should fill my shrimp tanks with a mass jungle of plants because yours seem to have way more shrimp in them than mine. lol

    Yeah I have tended to keep mine quite tidy in terms of plants with large foregrounds to view the shrimp but am considering filling them all up now :)

    Thank you for posting all that information about each photograph.

    You have some very interesting photos there, am I correct in saying you have or had plenty of snails, if so do you intend to keep them or feed them to Assassin Snails.

    That sounds like a good idea but in the mean time the snails are multiplying at a very fast rate and could be making a big mess in your tank.

    As the Assassins are cheap I would invest in buying several more.
