    I think the shrimp are happy. One died from getting in the filter but I fixed so that won't happen again. I now have two berried shrimp. The start to my colony EricV

    Update on the shrimp tank. Multiplying like crazy. Had to fix the filter intake because babies were getting around where I thought I had it fixed and into the filter, so I superglued a piece of fine mesh to the overflow so all is good now.

    Added 6 emerald dwarf rasbora (microrasbora erythromiron) to the tank. Thought they were a beautiful fish and they wouldn't make it in my other tanks so I figured they wouldn't do to much harm to my shrimp population seeing as how they won't be bigger than an adult rcs

    Beautiful! I've had my eye on that species too. Nano fish are great!

    Yeah when I decided on nano fish with the rcs I originally thought about chili rasbora but then I saw these guys. They've already gotten some color after a few hours.

    I am so jealous of your tank. That is one of the nicest, put together tanks I have seen in a long time. Half of me wants to quit my job to have the time to really do this. :0 :;scuba

    Thank you very much. I would love to quit my job to do this. Unfortunately my job funds my mts

    Looks like the shrimp have really colored up nicely. That still the group of sakuras you got from me?
     
  18. JswinWell Known MemberMember

    EricV sure are plus about 5 that I bought at my lfs to add some variation to the gene pool but in cherry shrimp math 15+5 equals 200
