    In a sence that is what this is about, I have seen and listened to all you guys and gals who have experience in these things, I've and followed, actually emulated what I have seen on this forum, I feel it is really coming together now, thanks to everyone here, the Shrimps will just complete the picture. Then it is just “time” to allow it to mature:cool::cool::cool:

    Just to let everyone know, I got these from Andrew Cole, a moderator on this forum and what a nice, genuine chap he is too, he has guided me through “Shrimp” he could have sold me anything, but he was really honest, in what he would recommend, especially with the water conditions in our area. He has his own online shrimp outlet I could not recommend him highly enough! He’s going to be ever-so embarrassed when he reads this – but I wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t true… Now I have another empty aquarium outside no the wife would kill me!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not embarrassed at all, and now I know who you mean by Roy from London :) Glad the shrimp settled in so quickly, should redden further over the next day or so.

    I'll be back on the forum more once I get my main scape tank up and running again, Lost the motivation a little with it being in waiting so long.

    Good to meet you today though and will keep checking in :)

    Hi Ian, From your words;) I get that you are just a little exited and why not :D
    The shrimp look fab :cool: I Know what you will be doing over the next few days:LOL: Glued to your tank watching your shrimp :ROFLMAO:
    I watch mine for hours ;) As Andrew said they should colour up soon too a nice bright red :rolleyes:
    I would buy the Wife some flowers & a box of chocs ;) And be a good boy :D
    Then ask to set up the other tank :) Well seems silly to let it sitting there empty :( When you can do another fab Scape:rolleyes: Ho and add more shrimp :D

    I will complete it. As Ian saw it is just sitting there with the hardscape in at the moment. Keep spending the money on other things at the moment but am hopeful it will be started before July when I've paid my NI. lol

    Roy you’re right, already spent ages watching the tank when I should have been working on my computer which is right next to it!
    Andrew’s tanks are amazing, I have already told him I would like to see that Colorado go forward, but as he says sometimes other things take priority, he still has “nine” other tanks up and running and looking great, it was really good to meet a fellow enthusiast who understood the passions we all have, it’s also good to see items that I have only seen on the internet in photos. He has given me lots of good ideas for the future.

    Not much happening of late, life has been getting in the way. however I have found I’m using more CO2 than I ever thought I would, I may need to investigate alternate options?

    A couple of snaps tonight
    I hope Andy checks in to see the colour coming out in these two...

    Hi Ian, Looking great ;) Nice colour on the shrimp (y)
    With the Co2 check this out www.Co2art.co.uk They do an Adapter for sodastream bottle :)
    It will work out cheaper than what you are using;) Plus the sodastream bottles are easy to get ;) Ho and they have just updated there product range (y)
