That was my take on them after a year at one and several visits when selecting a permanent school!
thanks... it's a hard choice free vs. 40K a year. Rowan is smaller then Rutgers but.. still... thanks for your honesty.

Btw we should meet up soon again since you're like 2 min away lol.
I got some extra floaters if you want some, 3 different kinds: Amazon frogbit, slavinia or RRF.

I had to take out the adult least killies cause they were eating the baby shrimp lol.....But I have like 30 now lol........
Lol I definitely agree we should. I'm about to put in a shrimp order, so if you want anything you can always hop in on my shipping.

I just was gifted some red root floaters, but I've never tried frog bit.

On the Killies, I love the males, but the females are out of my taste. I was going to see if you wanted the other 2 adult females I have. Dunno what I'm going to do with my 30 babies LOL.

It is hard. I made my choice because of my J/MC major.

If I was an education major, I'd have picked SUNY Fredonia. All kinda depends on what you want to do

Hey let's do a small update shall we? My shrimp have always gone crazy for every food. But shrimp, fish crayfish, snail and the like go crazy for Om Nom Nom.

I noticed a squabble for the food and immediately started snapping pictures. I had to grab a little outside lighting as the lighting in the tank with floaters is not the brightest.

Here the cray has found and stolen the food, run into a cave where she can't be hounded from all angles for it.

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

That's in here somewhere. They are called H. Formosa or the common name of Least Killifish.

Welcome to the forum, by the way.

A few pictures. I will probably try to keep my floaters at this level from here on in. It just looks better to me.

I tested parameters today. They're all really good.

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.

18g (Red Cherry Neo Shrimp | Malawa Shrimp)
7.5g (Yellow Neo Shrimp)
3.2g (Pumpkin Neo Shrimp)
2g (Snails)
11.4g (new home soon for the Pumpkin Neos)
