12 gallon long: I am pretty seriously considering getting rid of my Rilis, From the start I have been somewhat disappointed in them as I paid a price that I should have been sent high grades and I pretty much received culls. At first I thought I might try and selectively breed them to high grades, but I am not sure it is worth the work, plus at the rate they are breeding I am concerned they are going to start to out complete my tigers, which are really the stars of the tank.
Starting to see babies in the Chi Riparium, based on what I am seeing compared to the amount of eggs I am getting a really low survival rate, although it is possible they are still just hiding and there are more in the tank then I though. I may try taking out the substrate and switching for an active substrate, I have some akadama available I might use. I am not crazy about the sand as all the shrimp poo gathers on it and looks pretty ugly.
I'll be starting to update soon regarding the 20 gallon long as I start to build it.
