Hello all. I’ve been keeping a 30 gallon long with RCS for 20 months or so. While I’m not terribly interested in cherry shrimp, I have some fish that like to eat red things, and they’ve been a terrific conditioning food.
here’s the fun part…
I think I’ve stumbled upon some magical shrimp...
After a few years of lusting, but being put off by the high cost and low quantity per box, I scored one of my “list” species on a flyer I took from an exporter a friend uses. The amazing chameleon whip tail, aka Pseudohemiodon apithanos, from Colombia. Not much to look at yet….unless you really look
Thought it would be fun to catalog my fish room and it’s stock.

Trying to harden up some water to grow out fry. It appears I'm able to add enough magnesium sulfate and calcium sulfate dihydrate to get the TDS up to 170ish...but I have undissolved leftovers on the bottom of my tub. The leftovers will dissolve on the next filling. What am I missing here? Do...

Here's another one that's an absolute eye burner. Apistogramma sp. "Abacaxis" sometimes refered to as Wilhelmi, or the pineapple apistogramma. A bag of these males will put the most spectacular line bred cacatuiodes to shame every day of the week. WC female pictured with couple day old fry.
Super fun Apistogramma that's not seen in the hobby all that often. These guys spend their whole lives living on sandbars. Minimal leaf litter, very little structure, just little depressions in the sand. Super fun to watch....these guys and gals can move some sand around. 1 day old fry pictured...
