So it turns out you can't just shove every kind of dwarf shrimp in your freshwater community tank and call it a day Sometimes they need much lower TDS readings, a different temperature, lower pH... And suddenly you're converting your contest peninsula tank into a dwarf shrimp tank! Pardon my dust algae while this tank settles! Crypt is melting, as it sometimes does... It turns out you also can't just drop brand new driftwood into your tank and assume it won't let out a bunch of yummy carbon for bacteria! Or maybe the Curse of Maria's House is hitting this tank, too, before its bacterial population gets established correctly... Hmmm.. Either way I'm left with this: And this, which is much cuter: And of course these are the little guys actually meant for this tank: The end result will be a planted tank with a colony of Red and Black taiwan bees, along with some blue bolts. Wish me luck!
