Anders247 the tank is 30 gallon - 36 1/4 x 12 5/8 x 16 3/4Anders247 said:That would be fine but it lacks bottom dwellers. Remind me of the tank dimensions?
For a while there I was considering some red cherry shrimp but in the end they just seemed like too much of a pain. Everything eats their fry and lots of times.. the adults too. Would need to use algae wafers and such but the do give the bottom some interest.oOBlueOo said:What about some type of shrimp? They could help with food that falls to the bottom.
oOBlueOo would you say they require any additional care? Did you have to put a sponge in your intake or anything? That may have been the final thing that put me off. I just put in an EheI'm installation kit and I couldn't figure out a good way to keep the shrimp/fry from getting sucked up.oOBlueOo said:I don't feed mine wafers. They pick at the plants and eat leftover fish food. If there's enough plant cover, the shrimplets do survive.
That's what I need right there is a filter sponge. EheI'm has a prefilter but when I asked on here no one was able to tell me if it was "fine" enough to prevent fry from being sucked up.oOBlueOo said:I have a pre-filter on the intake. I had issues where baby ghost shrimp would get sucked into the filter. I can't say if baby cherries would get sucked in.
