Yeah, I really love it! IMO it's cooler than any shrimp, even CRS! The coloration is just awesome! It molted last night, so it must be doing well. I really hope to get another and breed them. They're just so hard to find! I got this one for a steal though. 5 bucks! Well, after a store credit for some plants and fish. They used to be 14 bucks, but they lowered it. Now they're 10! Even that is an amazing deal! That doesn't occur often at my LFS!
I bought one once when they were 14 bucks, and I put it in my ebi. Then it killed one of my uber expensive OEBT/ate it after it died (don't know which) and I got soooo pissed off I brought it back. But now I realize how awesome they are! The guy at the LFS said that he saw a neon eat one after it molted. My birthday's soon, so, I'm thinking I'll ask my parents for the Fluval Spec to breed these guys in. That'd be sick! Thanks guys, keep the comments coming!
Oh, and I wouldn't worry about putting a CPO in a densely planted tank with an established colony of RCS. I think that it'd pick some off, but not enough to notice. However, in my ebi, I have 13 CRS, and in my 2.5 I have 18 RCS, so it'd put a noticeable dent in my population.
