Well I have something confusing. It does seem to me like the shrimp population is decreasing here. And I can no longer find my 4 happy tigers anymore.
The tigers are getting almost yellow then passing away, I think. Which worries me. All the neos are fine. I know some died due to old age. But there are berried shrimp and their shells are phenomenal. I just thinned out floaters today. I've been crazy busy lately unfortunately.
Also -- the crayfish is officially gone. I've moved it to my segregated tank
Here's a shot of how many floaters you can remove and still have nearly 70% of your surface still covered.
Is that salvinia minima? Mine doesn't seem to grow that densely. Also, that's a lot of floaters!
Sorry to hear about your shrimp - wish I had advice.
Yeah it is Salvinia minima actually. Nice eye. It grows really densely in my tanks. When I thin it I get a ton out. If you ever want some just hit me up.
-Edit. It just occurred to me you have some already. Lol. Sorry.
And it's ok. I will be watching the neos very carefully. And I'll be watching the babies to see what happens to them.
I've seen no cloudy neos, and trust me I know what a cloudy neo looks like. These orange ones may be cloudy. I don't know if there's such thing as a tiger-only infection :/ nor do I know how I'd get one in my tank
I'm thinking about getting this tank for a single CPO. No shrimp and probably no snails. Not sure if it would have any fish added. How is your CPO with the Least Killifish? I know that CPOs can kill shrimp, snails, and fish so I'm hesitant on adding any tank mates. Also the light you have, do you think it will grow low light stem plants?
I'm sorry about your TT shrimp. From what I read, Tigers seem to be picky.
