    Yeah, I've seen quite a few shrimp with eggs. Odd thing is, the same amount of pregnant shrimp also happen to be the same number of missing shrimp. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] Anyway, I see little critters swimming around in there, either baby shrimp, and/or something else. I've had Sea Monkeys and regular brine shrimp, so there are some that swim like that. But there's some kind of critter that swims very fast and in weird and quick-changing directions. Almost like it's jumping around.

    LOL, my mom asked how big those shrimp got when I told her I saw lots of eggs. Then she asked me if they were edible!

    Hey pondboy, not your fault. Those post office folks only seem to mess up on plant packages! Geez, you'd think they would have a bit more respect when re-packaging.

    Congrats! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/unclesam.gif[/img] those little jumpy things are shrimp fry. I'm 100% sure [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Sad thing is though, when the female lays eggs, she dies, i think [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] At least you got tons of babies [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    It's sad that they die, but I feel better about it now. I had been wondering if I was doing something wrong, it's awfully strange to see healthy fat pregnant shrimp swimming around at night and then find shrimp pieces everywhere the next morning.

    Okay, here's an after picture. I switched the lights, but the new one is actually brighter. I just took the pic at a bad angle.

    You can see how the the two plants near the front are doing much worse, but the other one in the back right is thriving. The rest are new plants. There's actually the same amount of large rocks as before (all I added was 5lb of black gravel) but they're spread about more. And of course, the fish saw the camera and went into hiding. the white thing in the middle is a piece of PVC pipe for hiding in and where I put the algae tablets so they dont' make as much of a mess.

    It's a bit scummy, I haven't cleaned it since I got it. I'll probably to a quick scrub and 25% change this weekend.

    how many neon tetras do you have? i see only one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/ghostface.gif[/img] you should get at least 6 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The tank looks great, its a bit bare though, you should get some top dwelling fish. I would start with 3 hatchets [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
