    55L tanks. Odd size I think.

    Played around with the wiring today, had to redo 80% of it due to cutting it for the move, but I messed up so I kinda want to redo it to make it look better.

    Either way 6 tanks are in and filled, will switch on the heaters tomorrow and let it start cycling!

    Nothing like fresh glass and a sense of anything is possible.

    Time for an update!
    Wanted to do one sooner but real life is taking up too much time.

    Current state of new setup!
    Just filled another 2 tanks with substrate and plants. Only have 4 tanks left to fill. Have langa left for 1, and the other 3 will be akadama, leaving me with 6 langa tanks, and 6 akadama tanks.

    From the top going down
    CPD's and Amano Shrimp, Blue eye Rainbowfish, Dwarf Rainbowfish
    Yellow/Pumpkin Shrimp. Red Neos(Fire/Sakura/Cherry), Blue dream shrimp
    Crystal Red Shrimp, Crystal blue shrimp, TBC
    TBC, TBC, TBC

    Original plan was to do snails and fish in the bottom 3 but ended up keeping my 4ft, so going to continue with a few rainbows and Assassin snails.

    Want to give a shout out to @Christiaan Duvenage . Awesome guy and can see the skill that went in when he built the rack!

    Taking photo's when I can, and will upload them when I get time to do a proper setup guide. Still have to do a few things before I am happy with the setup, but already loving it! CPD's started to spawn when I added them to the temp moss tank so hoping to get something out of that :D

    The only sad part is that it seems like 1 tank has a corner that got damaged during travel, and is cracked but not 100% through but not willing to risk it, so need to pick up another tank to get the last spot filled.

    Eh. It happens.

    Going to setup the tank on the balcony to grow some algae and see how it goes. Maybe drop in a few cold water fish in there. Thats if it does not leak haha

    So been a while and there has been a few changes. Thought I would do a tiny update.
    I now have a fish room... Technically a shrimp room as I moving more and more into the wonderful of shrimp.
    Have 15 different type of shrimp at the moment and hoping to get a few more once I move the final tanks over to the correct rack and get a few more 4ft tanks.

    Fish wise, I only keep nano species at the moment. Mostly CPD's and spotted blue eye rainbows.

    Currently trying to breed out amano's but life got in the way again, so I missed the drop date by a day in December... Next female is due 24 of Jan!

    I actually went back in this thread. There is a post about me adding 10-15 really nice pumpkins to a tank... Yea that one photo of the pumpkins is the result of that 6 months later. Quite cool to see the outcome.

    So breeding setup is finally maturing, 1 tank that I still want to replace before I am happy.

    Should really rename this thread to shrimp adventures since they all have shrimp in haha.
