Its been a good 6 months since the last update.  Life some how has a way of getting busy.  One nice thing about being busy is that you touch the tank less and it ends up doing much better 🙂  I recently did a major trim on the tanks as it was filled with plants.  I wish I took some pictures before hand to show you how much moss I ended up taking out of the tanks.

Just some updates, the CBS tank now has over 100 shrimp!!!  I’m very excited about this.  My goal was to get to 100 so I like to think that this tank was a success.  I didn’t realized that it hit over 100 until I trim the moss away.  Since the moss covered over 50% of the tank, I couldn’t really see all the shrimp at once.  After the trim, you can really see all the shrimp out and about.  The CBS tank is doing well and it has about 60 CBS shrimp.  I also cleaned out both filters.  Surprisingly the CRS filter pads were a lot dirtier.  I thought the CBS tank with the UGF would suck up a lot more dirt.  I did however found a few good size CRS babies inside the filter.  Strange how they could get in there and survive.

I have also started another project to grow plants emmersed.  I will save this for another post 🙂

Here are some pictures:
