Vicki - Thanks! It is finally starting to look lush which I'm really excited about, so thanks!
Thanks, yeah I'm surprised at how red they are too to be honest, I wasn't expecting it to be that red! The females are far brighter than the males, but they're all lovely! I got them right here in the SnS from Revernance
(thanks again!) oddly enough since he posted just below you! weird coincidence! heeheehee
Also, I highly
suggest bamboo shrimp, they're really
neat little critters! heehee
Yeah, they get nice and red when they're happy and well fed
The brown ones in the pet stores tend not to be as happy/well fed, though my guy certainly doesn't appear to be lacking for food, he's always sitting in the current fans open but some days he is browner than others. I've noticed he seems to get particularly bright red for a week or so before he molts (sheds?). Can you tell I like him?
from what i've read if your tank is well established, you shouldn't need to specially feed the bamboos, but I tend to put a little bit of fry food once or twice a week (like hikari first bites, any of the powdery kinds....i actually have a mix of different fry foods and algae powder, i could send you some if you wanted) he'll also pop down off his feeding posts and pick at algae wafers occasionally
well i've babbled enough about my little friend
reverance - Thanks for the kind words! Sparkling gouramis are great little fish, i enjoy them as well!
Glad you think the little shrimp are cute
thank you again for them, they're doing great!
Haha I'll probably be posting some flame moss in the SnS pretty soon, but not just
yet, it is getting time for a trim but the first trim will get dumped into my guppy rearing tank because most of what was in there was being held for my boy, so that went to his tank the other day. Next trim though!
Want me to let you know before I post it that it's available
