Rachel,

I expect you are planning on restocking Danio margaritatus? One of these days I'm going to be ready to try to start a specimen tank for them.

I received some Danio margaritatus from Rachel about a month ago.

Fantastic fish, arrived in great health. I have every one of them today.

Bide your time and wait for her to get those fish through quarantine. It is worth the wait and you will not be disappointed.

I luck out by living fairly close to her! Rachel, I got the wood in today to build my stands for my tanks. After that it's doing the scape and filling with water. After that. . . ROAD TRIP!!!

Another question from me.... Yes, I am trying to formulate a final order lol ... I have a new 40g that is situated near a fair number of windows. And I'd like to go ahead and get the "proactive algae eating crew" together before the algae even gets a foothold

Of the following three shrimp, which would you suggest more for algae eating? And if they are equal, all things considered, can they be kept together w/ interbreeding?

Caridina propinqua
Amano shrimp
Malawa shrimp

Amanos would be the best algae eaters out of those 3. That and a few otos with some light-loving plants would set you right.
