The Bamboo and Amano Shrimp along with the Nerite Snails will be going into the Front room 300 Ltr. tank
tank, it's had API Quick start and three Zebra Danioes in for three weeks now so the Nitrate cycle is well under way.

I took the Zebra Danioes out at the weekend and put them back in their upstairs tank, turned the front room tank lights on this morning and had a shock :what: easily a couple hundred (they're all over the tank)

I've been feeding the Bamboo Shrimp a mixture of Liquifry and Spirulina so pipetted a couple of drops into the crowd hovering in the light beam

the plant's are Hydrocotyle leucocephala (Brazilian Pennywort) just floating, waiting for the drift wood to soak enough to sink then they'll be tied on

After thinking about it I descided I didn't want a tank full of Zebra Danioes so put one of the Adults back in, the Fry lasted about 30 seconds :ninja: the branches in the water butt are getting water logged so in a couple of days I'll tie the plants to them and put them in the tank and let them get established then do a water test, if OK the Zebra Danio can come out and the Bamboo Shrimp can go in
