    I think I got rid of the last two leaves of duckweed yesterday, but I expect it'll return from somewhere in a couple of months.
    I thought I'd done it last year as well, but obviously not....... *rolleyes*

    Well, I've received my belated birthday money for the shrimp!  *grin* ... What to buy!? hahaha I've had my eyes set on some Blue Rili Shrimp, I just don't know where I'd get them from. I'm going to have a look at Paddock Farm again but I'm concerned about their high prices for Shrimp; they were £2.89 or 4 for a tenner or something like that, and that was just for Cherries. I'm aware that's not that expensive but it is more pricey than I've seen in other places, I just can't remember where those other places are.

    Oh well, will get looking around online and then will aim to make some phone calls during the week. Meanwhile, if anyone has any suggestions then you are very welcome and, as always, encouraged to share them :)

    I was gifted £30 so, not a lot but enough to start a nice little group and build up from there :) (I'm hoping to get somewhere around 10)

    Thanks for your help Piker. I've ordered 10 Orange Rili shrimp which should arrive by Wednesday, Thursday at the latest :)

    It's been so long a wait! But hopefully it'll all be worth it! :)

    The image below is the Orange Rili shrimp that I've ordered. I was going to order the Black Rili Shrimp but my OH said that they might be difficult to see in the subdued lighting of the shrimp tank so went with the Orange ones :)

    Excited!!!  *grin* *grin* *grin*

    Good stuff look forward to the pics.
    You probably know this but be patient when drip aclimating them, wait till the temp and tds match your tank before adding them, give them the best possible start.
