G'day,

Nice to see somebody with shrimps.

Spawning moss will adhere to most things. Not sure why you have used the shade cloth. Aqua scaping your tank would be simple, simply purchase wood shape of choice, strap the spawning moss to it with some black cotton thread and stand back.

Hi fishkid951

Very nicely put together thread, the shrimps look very nice and make an addition to any non-aggressive species tank. :thumb

They also come in handy with there cleaning abilities. :thumbup:

Wish you the best with them :)

Regards Symphy ;)

thanx...

the shad e cloth is a mat i am making for them. It is not to bond it with anything, but to make a neat ground cover. I have a couple of them growing in a spare tank atm.

I am just having a shrimp only tank...hopefully they will breed and grow so they are more visible. I have addedsome driftwood into the tank since my last post and added java moss to it. I think it looks much better than before. Wont look complete until the java moss grows a bit more and more shrimp start to appear;)
