so excited! saw a baby CPO in the tank.
They are TINY! I think there should be more hiding?
there are 5 neon tetras with the CPO in a 20 gallon tall, should I be concern about the neons?
any care advice/suggestions?
Thanks!

You must give them hiding places and if they were bred in the tank even more so as the adults will kill them, apart from that and feeding theres not a lot more you can do, the neon tetras may have a go

the tank is full or java moss and cholla wood.
I will work on getting more hiding spots.
do you mean neon tetras may have to go or they are good?

Theres always an element of risk with any fish and shrimp but baby cpo are a lot bigger and have claws so tbh I think you'll be ok

I have tried multiple times to keep CPOs, but I have had exactly 0 luck with them. What is your secret?
