I have an opportunity to get 8 RCS for $10 tomorrow, but my Nitrates are at 10ppm (Ammonia and Nitrites are at 0). Would you advise to wait until the Nitrates are at zero or should the RCS be okay?
Those numbers are great! as long as your nitrates dont climb above 40pmm (athough most of us keep them under 20ppm), you're all good! the best way to control nitrates is by doing weekly partial water changes, but live plants can also use them up and keep the levels low, too.

The black skirts may harass the shrimp, and/or may cause them to hide a lot, just so you know.
I was thinking of putting them in my 20g which has 2 Honey Gourami, but I'm afraid they eat them. Am I correct with that concern?
