Very nicely written blog and great pictures. I hadn't had much luck with tigers in general but it has changed a bit lately, got BTOE to breed and the babies are about 5-6mm now, and more are berried. These shrimps are beautiful.

Thanks for the compliments :0 I figure I've been in the hobby long enough that now I'd love to share my experiences and knowledge now, as well as exchange tips with fellow aquarist... You can never learn enough when it comes to the aquarium hobby...

This is my third try with OBETs and third times the charm... First couple times I went all crazy about keeping the ph lower than 7.0, weekly water changes, but now I'm taking a more relaxed approach and realizing that less is more... Ph is always between 7.0 and 7.4, maintained with the subtrate, bogwood and live plants, and I'm making nature take care of the water quality via biological filtration and the live plants... Less feeding is a big help too, as the plants offers more feeding opportunities.

Was it the green bag for plants or the red bag with the crystal shrimp picture?

Thanks mate!
