    MY 10 gallon tank is finally ready for the Triops eggs! I've got sand, some awesome rocks, and the equipment. It took 2 days for the latex to dry but it's ready! As soon as the sand clears I'll post pics.

    All I need now is some plants and eggs!

    That sounds great, Clint! What's Amano? lol. I just wanted to tell ya that you should hatch out the eggs in a 1-2 liter container and then move the babies into the 10 gal. a week or so after they've hatched.

    Will do.

    Takashia Amano! The freshwater planted tank hero who's an aquascaping master! He's a photographer, too. I think he's written about 3 books. He's like a zen aquascape artist.

    Holy crud, that's amazing! Just so ya know though, Triops are from desert vernal pools with really nothing in them, they wouldn't look anything like that, lol.
