Beautiful tank. I have RCS in an 8 gallon with one pygmy cory, in hopes that the RCS will breed. So far I haven't had any luck, but I am still hoping.

Alas; I was sitting here last night at bedtime, and my tank started leaking at the bottom, so I was up until two, changing it over to a small RECTANGLE tank, and everything is hiding this morning, so I'm not sure how the shrimp did! Hopefully, the one carrying eggs, will still be carrying, but if not, maybe next time! Rats!!!!!!!!!!

Just monitor the tank, and if you see the guppies attacking your shrimp then you can address it then. Or if your shrimp population is mysteriously shrinking. Tank looks good!
+1 to everything said here.

The tank looks nice for a little office desk piece.

Well, since the leak, I've turned my desk tank, into a five gallon nano! Inhabitants are, two guppies, 1 CPO, three cherry shrimp, three Rili shrimp, and today, my local fish lady said, Hey, you want a blueberry shrimp? So, I now have one of those as well! Oh, and one nerite snail!

Those shrimp are all neos, and if they interbreed (which they will), you will have brown/clear wild-color shrimp, and you will likely lose all of the different colorations.

Yes, I figured as much, though one Rili was pregnant when I got her, and one Cherry was as well. Had to learn the hard way, why CPOs can't be in there! One just molted, and was too slow to get away from him. He now resides in his 2 1/2 gallon! Just wanted them for fun for now. If they do well, I may go to one color later!

Nice tank. What type of filtration and light do you have on it?

Well, my Rilis molted, and died last night! All three of them! I guess it was from having to switch them from the 2 gallon Hex, to the five gallon, and the newer water! Oh well! The cherries seem to be fine! I will see if I can get a mate for the CPO, and let the Cherries do their thing! I have an outside filter, with gauze over the end of the tube, so it doesn't suck up any inhabitants! I put a twist bulb in for a light, and it seems to be pretty good! It is a new 13 watt mini spiral, that is supposed to be sixty watts! It JUST fits into the light fixture for the five gallon!

Things have changed once again! I upgraded to a ten gallon, and CPOs and shrimp are now doing fine! Female CPO is carrying eggs as of today! Hoping things will continue to go well!
