Hello all! Who likes White Clouds? I think they are quite the enjoyable and colorful species. I do like both the gold and regular variety, but I would prefer to keep the gold just out of personal taste.
Actually, that is also the issue with me. My place experiences wild temperature fluctuations between summers and winters. Given the pathetic experiences I have had with heaters, i believe that there is no one fish that can survive both, my summer and winter temperature. Winters are perfect for WCMM.kansas said:I've considered them but in my un-airconditioned house, tanks get as high as 85 degrees in the summer, and I figured that wouldn't be good for them
They are quite nice. The only downside I can honestly say if you want a tight schooling fish, this one isn't it. They don't really school much at all.Fishproblem said:Honestly, I've kept gold and the wilder-type green ones and the green are just so gorgeous. Especially when the males are showing off, the bright red fins and shining lateral stripe are gorgeous in contrast against the green bodies. They've got more personality than most tetras, too.
I just got five from my neighbor that are going to go into a tank I don't see very often, and I'm a little bummed I won't get to watch them all the time!
Didn't know we mirrored each other here Richie. When I set up my cull tank I decided to try something new and make it a fish/shrimp tank. I wanted neon's but couldn't find them. But did find wcmm's. And like you, I am charmed by them. I think they are pretty, far prettier than they looked at the lfs because now they aren't stress by other species in the small lfs tank, they are now just able to be themselves and it shows in how much mine have colored up. And like you, they are doing very well in shrimp temps. Also like you, there are cory cats.richiep said:I've got 20 regular in with my cull shrimp & cory cats I didn't thing id like them but they amhace grown on me
LOL Richie. I think it's because I have learned so much from you in my shrimp keeping ventures that sometimes I harness my inner richie without realizing it.richiep said:We pay just over double that
Its strange how we do the same things and don't realise it
