Now my favorite tank, my Dallas' 5.5 gallon, I worked hard to make this one perfect so I love it the most.
I plan to work on my 10 gallon some more to try and make it... Better. How I'm not sure yet, but something seems... Off. Could just be me! I'm a bit of a perfectionist with few things, my tanks are one of those.

First up is Dallas in his Mermaid Cove:
I've actually stuck a couple of plants to the sides of his tank so he can lay on them
And gave Dallas an Amazon Sword plant,
Isn't he just pretty?
My Ten gallon is the one that's changed the most:
Now! For my newest tank, my Shrimp tank!
Let's play spot the babies with these two pictures:
My sister thinks that the Ten Gallon looks so... Dull, with the other two so "themed" to make it easier to spot the fish and shrimp.

Okay! So, one of my last two Danios died shortly after these pictures were taken so I 'downgraded' my last Danio, Gluttony, to the 5 Gallon with the shrimp. Instead of eating the shrimp (which I feared!) she's eaten the white worms that showed up due to over feeding. YAY! Thank you!
My sponge filter was making too much noise for my room mate so trying to fix that I ended up rearranging everything in the tank. So my New, but still the same, shrimp tank:
Gluttony, named that because she'll eat until she's almost twice her size... She'd steal the Cory cats food;
My teens having some breakfast/lunch:
I have 5 pregnant females right now, whooo!!
And when I downgraded Gluttony I upgraded Dallas and his Mermaid cove:
Dallas was being camera shy, so I couldn't get any pictures of him, but you can seem him in there if you look at his "floating" plants.

I didn't even get a picture of all of my Cherries, there's so many that it's just near impossible!
I had to buy mine from someone on here, LilGreenPuffer, because my LFS didn't have any and I got the 'shrimp itch'.
Careful about the ghosties! They offend eat the babies... There's a caresheet on here, that might help you raise the babies! Um... It's, right here.

Can't wait to set up my 5gal this weekend. I will be using black gravel so I can see the suckers. Right now the ones in the sorority tank are hard to see since I have the (river pebble) color mixed with the wild multi color gravel and they just blend in. My orange bee shrimp are great hiders and very small and I haven't actually laid eyes on them in around 2 or 3 days so I hope they are still kicking. LOL They were VERY good at hiding in plain site at the LFS as well so I am not too worried.
Good luck with all your cherry shrimp. They look great!!

Also it's fun to watch them pick up a grain of sand and chuck it out of their way.
Best of luck with your ghosties! If you don't want to breed them you can just let them eat the babies... My ghost experience is short but I do know that I had one who had eggs but they very got... Fertilized? So she ate them. Also in a community tank it might just be to 'stressful' to even THINK about babies.
With how well my Cherries are breeding I might actually be needing to sell some soon.
I just have a fear of not packing them right and them all dying in the post office.......

Took HOURS to get the sand out from under my nails though....
