PFR? red enough? One on right is just a high grade RCS


Think RCS juvie on the left, very clear


Was probably a bad idea to mix high grade RCS with the PFRs/Sakuras. Going to take a long time to cull after they mix..

- Removed the giant vals to the 6g
- Had to move the SS meshes from the gravel to above the riccia to weigh it down, they're really hard to manage as carpet plants




Found a clear blue shrimp that accidently got in here, took it out. I'm regretting mixing red cherries with the PFRs, a lot of the baby shrimp aren't as red... going to take a few generation of culling to get the pure red back.
