Guppies and Shrimp..... I get the biggest enjoyment from propagation of plants!!



Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again

Nice I forgot about my guppies and RCS. It's nice to see the little ferns floating around the tank. I'm doing pretty good on the algae part. Can you have OEBT and RCS in the same tank?

Do you use RO water? I have RCS with guppies and I wanted to try something besides just RCS but I don't want to use RO water.

you can have cherry and OEBT in same tank, but not any of the crystal shrimp and OEBT, they are same genus and will interbreed

Nope just good ol' tap treated with prime. The pH is actually very close to what OEBT prefer.

Guppies (in previous tanks), platys (again, previous tanks) and Black Skirt tetras in my current tank.

Were you trying to breed the black skirts or just happened?

No, they just did it all by themselves. Was happy to find the little ones swimming around!
