    I start a new topic to update mine tanks...


    Here is the first one.


    Its 100lt tanks , one pair ancistrus, and a lot of babies 100-150.


    I had 20rummys , but after i left for 1.5 month i found only four.


    Filter is fluval 206, light 21watt osram 865, no co2 , and ferts when i saw something wrong.


    There is a lot of bba, but it look great to this tank,and dont do anything . :)

    Wow Nic, what a show! You did a great job over there. Next time I'll go in Italy I'll organize a trip in Greece just to see your tanks :cool:


    I bet you are having fun with all those tanks, how much time dedicate a day to keep them so well?


    Also, I have noticed in your shrimp tanks you put some tree leaves to rot in there: does that help with shrimp? Do shrimp eat them? If so, that's something I never thought about...


    Congratulations for your collection again!!

    Haha ok .


    Yes i use dry leaves...


    Some leaves like mulberry shrimp eat the leaf after 2- days, also ansictrus.


    Other harder leaves, make a biofilm , and srhimp eat only biofilm.


    Its not need a lot of maintenance...


    Aquariums are not in the same place ... but in three, 180 liters in my office, shrimps over my office in the room, 100 anscistrus at home ... There are three different Ro waters... For example, maintenance for all shrimp tanks , I want less than 1 hour DRAIN FILLING - pruning. The 180lt 10-20 minutes. 100 liters, 10 to 20 minutes. Casual, simply go through the aquarium feed and if plants overgrown trim. Daily 5 minutes in each space ... This is the time that i see the tanks.
