My main aquarium is in the living room. I work from home and wanted a small setup in my office to keep me company. This is my first attempt with live plants. Even though the plants are small, they seem to be doing well and I think they've grown a bit.
I've never had cherry shrimp this active or this vibrant, so they've been a pleasant surprise. And Endler's never disappoint!
I feel that the MTS I have in my main tank have helped with water quality and I'm tempted to move some over to my new tank. Any issues with MTS eating plants? Or any reason I shouldn't move some over? If I do, is it better to move babies or adults?
it doesnt matter which you move, adults or the smaller ones, you can literally pick them out of one and plop them into another tank and they will thrive. They are nearly impossible to kill. I love them, many hate them.
Question. Do you notice your endlers harassing your shrimp ever?
Thanks for the info on MTS. I like them too. I feel that they do an amazing job helping me to keep my 10 gallon in good condition.
I've had two batches of Endler's. One in my 10 gallon (with Guppies) and then the new guys in the Evolve, both live with RCS and I've never seen any aggressive or harassing behavior. The Endler's are cool little fish and have curious personalities. I caught one yesterday really interested in whatever this RCS was doing. He swam around the shrimp for a bit and was picking at the dirt where the shrimp was grazing, but never displayed any aggression.
