How long to wait?
So I got the new Fluval Ebi. I love it so far. I have one female Betta, one Amano Shrimp, and three Zebra Danios. I found a good auction: 30+ RCS for $35 shipped. So, the tank has been set up since Friday. It appears to be cycled, as all of the NH3, NO3, and NO4 are right where they should be. How? I seeded it with gravel in a sock from my 29 community, and put some gravel from my ten gallon inside the filter between the two sponge things. I will soon be adding one beautiful Platinum Half Moon Betta. I will take the female Betta out if I must. Do I need to? Or does that depend on the personalities of the individual fish? I do not care if the fish will eat the babies, as I will be moving all berried shrimp to my 2.5 as a nursery. Oh, and will the Zebra Danios be dangerous for the shrimp if I get really small ones? Because I've been watching them nip at each other. But not at the Betta or Amano. And is there some really small Pleco that could live in here? And will Amazon Sword be okay? And is Anubias really dangerous to shrimp? And How long should I wait before adding CRS? Not the RCS, but CRS. I would like to keep both. And finally, can I keep dwarf Crays with the shrimp? Thanks SOOOOO much. Any help is appreciated, and I will post pics soon.
So a Bristlenose pleco will be okay in this tank? Cool! Thanks. And do they need driftwood?
