The moss and floating plants are stunning in your tank. =) You mentioned the red root floaters, are they growing well for you? I have been thinking of trying some in my 25g and 29g tank. =)

The red root floaters are actually in other tanks, but they're doing super well. They just flowered for me. I like them a lot.

Thanks for your compliment

I'm sorry about your TT shrimp. From what I read, Tigers seem to be picky.
Thanks for your comment. I'd never get this particular tank for 1 CPO. But that's just me. My fish didn't pick on my CPO at all.

That's it. These fish are officially going. I don't feed the tank enough for them to do well, and I saw one attack a shrimp just now. The shrimp is ok. But I imagine they may be the cause of some of my shrimp deaths.

I guess I wont be getting those fish for my shrimp tanks. Once gone, the shrimp should be happier. I was going to add the fish to the CPO tank, but not sure now.

Are you going to try the TT shrimp again?

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)

I'd still advocate for the fish. They're neat buggers, especially if you feed them well. I'm a notorious careful feeder.

Me n Mab tried the Least Killiefish experiment..........
Both of us decided it doesn't work. Once I removed all the adult killies, the baby shrimp started coming out and roaming again.

Oh and I will research more if I ever try TTs again. I did like them though.

Yup. it's unfortunate. If you're not all about shrimp, like we are, they probably are a good choice.

i've been lucky with CPD, and SMALL rasbora with shrimp and even endlers (but no babies in that tank yet as my white shrimp refuse to mate)

as for guppies? i can't even keep a grourmi with it... i have a guppy for anyone who wants one. he's pretty sunset colored - and will rid a tank of all unwanted pests (okay of all things living)

1 6 gallon
1 2 gallon 8" cube
1 10 gallon endlers tank
1 betta

Here they are http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/al...p?albumid=9625

6 gallon journal

Hi, sorry to read about the fish problems. I have the tiny Brigittae Clilis, and so far the problem I had with them are they are so tiny they have a hard time even eating Micro Bites, so I crunched them and started feeding periodically the First Bites, and they seem like they aren't starving now.

My other tank has WCMM with the regular cherries, do not appear to have any problems with them.

I won a bid for a dozen OEBT, so I was glad to take your situation to heart, and will not take any undue chances. The oebt are coming this week.

The sand stones in there and the mosses are just beyond awesome, btw!!!
