Asian Bog Biotope Questions
hello, my little brother has a 10 gallon tank which I take care of for him. right now it is an unplanted community tank, and he wants to breed cherry shrimp. He will give away most of his fish, except for 3 sparkling gourami and a honey gourami. I will buy him some black sand (so he can see the babies easier), and buy him a few plants too. can anyone give some tips on how to breed cherries and good plants to use? also do you think the gouramies will be fine? they all are about 1 inch to 1.5 inches and have little teeny mouths which i doubt could fit even a part of a cherry shrimp. oh yeah, how many should he start with? he was originally planning on 4 and a trio of rainbow shrimp.
The gouramis will eat the baby shrimp for sure! If baby cherry shrimp are tiny and any fish that can fit it in their mouth will eat them! Also if he wants to breed them I would recommend about 10 shrimp. That way he is assured to have both genders!

The Sparkling gouramis may go after the Cherries. In fact, I am pretty sure they will. I have kept Sparkling gouramis with Amano shrimp with no problems whatsoever. You could keep half a dozen Amanos in a 10G
