Some Neocaridina heteropoda var in Aquarama 2011

So the famous Neocaridina heteropoda or Red Cherry Shrimp also have many variants or colour variety just like the famous Crystal Red Shrimp,  Caridina sp. Here are some of the Neocaridina heteropoda var. I saw in Aquarama 2011.

Ok, this is the popular Neocaridana heteropoda, but this is the Fire Red Shrimp variety
Next is the Yellow shrimp...Yellow Fire Shrimp to be exact =.="
I wonder why they give such a funny name, I can't relate fire with yellow...lolz
The best close up I can yellow?...tell me if you can relate fire with yellow, haha
Another funny name Chocolate shrimp....Chocolate?!?! Well at least I can relate brown and chocolate :D

There...Chocolate shrimp...another variety of the Neocaridina heteropoda
Taste like chocolate?
And finally, this variety of the Neocaridina heteropoda caught my eye, the Glaze shrimp. And funny, I did a Google search on the term "Glaze Shrimp" you know what turn up? A dish called Glaze shrimp...lolz!

Glaze shrimp...looks like a CRS huh

After I came back from Singapore, and visited one of the LFS here in my place, I found out that the Glaze shrimp is available for sale!

Takashi Amano Workshop in Malaysia

A once in a lifetime opportunity to meet Takashi Amano aka King of Nature Aquarium in Malaysia.

This workshop is held in conjunction with Aquafair Malaysia 2010. Here's the particular...

Date 26 November 2010
Time 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Venue Exhibition Hall 4, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre Kuala Lumpur
Fee RM 150.00 / USD 50.00 per participant
Speaker Mr Takashi Amano – King of Nature Aquarium

*For more information about this event, please visit here

*Alternatively you can also download the registration form here 
I'll be attending this workshop so if any of you guys attending, then I'll see you there :D

And by the way, I heard rumors that the date of the workshop was brought forward to the 27th November 2010 by popular request because it falls on Saturday which I think is much convenient to the local hobbyist.

If in any case it is true, then for those flying down to Kuala Lumpur, please make sure you are staying here extra longer, coz you don't want to be flying home on the 27th. Just to be safe, be there till the end of the aquafair event which is till the 28th November 2010.

So I guess that's about all, and for your info I'll be flying down on the 25th November, so till then see you there and see me live in real person too....haha :D

I had to remove the link to Aquafair Malaysia due to some technical glitch. Contact me if you want the link to the website.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Thanks :D

Java moss carpet

Quite sometime ago I created a foreground carpet using moss I collected from the wild. I guess it's java moss, because of it's form. The pic below shows the wild moss I collected a while back.

wild moss, I'm certain it's java moss because of the structure of it's strand...I can be wrong though :(

Check out the links below, you can read more about my moss collecting trip in my older blogpost:

So back to the moss carpet story...this is the result of using the above moss to make moss carpet...check out the pics...and pardon me, pics are blurry because I capture using a handphone camera :(

Java moss carpet, they grow in the form of individual strand like dwarf hairgrass :D This was taken on 2nd July 2010

Pic taken on 29th July 2010, just within few weeks, it became so dense :D...time for some trimming though

And if you ever wonder how I started growing this moss, how I tie it is...

Yeap, this is how I started growing the moss. Just tie on some pebbles or small rocks. And arrange it where you want the carpet to be :D
There you have it, my simple technique to creating a java moss carpet :D
