CRS. I've spent years with RCS, Ghost, and now Red Rilis. CRS are surely my next challenge.

Amano shrimp. I've never had luck keeping even so much as Ghost Shrimp, but these guys have actually stuck around for a couple of months- the local water supply is rainwater filtered through pine needles. Since I'm not a fan of the better living through chemistry approach to aquaria, that kind of rules out fauna that need elevated carbonate and potassium levels.

My only regret is that I had not tried them before. I find inverts more entertaining than my piscean pets and these guys have a lot of interesting behaviors that are fun to watch.

I am not a fan of chemicals wither, but I don't think adding back minerals originally found in their water constitutes chemistry.

Any West African Macrobrachium, especially M. vollenhovenii

Any Indian Macrobrachium with abbreviated larval development other than the redclaws and close relatives (e.g., M. agwi, which I had a few years back ... before it was officially described, actually!)

Atya other than A. gabonensis

M. gracilirostre

That very nicely striped prawn (apparently M. rosenbergii rosenbergii) from Sulawesi

Some of the "green rocket shrimp" or "green stone shrimp" coming out of South and SE Asia

Alpheus cyanoteles (a low-salinity snapping shrimp ... not really holding out hope tbh)

Caridina sulawesi ("bee shrimp"-resembling riverine species that's maybe even more prolific than Malawas)

Would be nice to once again set up a Caribbean stream tank with a big school of Xiphocaris and three or four genera of atyids, or a display setup with a single large M. heterochirus or M. carcinus, but I'm probably not going back to Puerto Rico any time soon...

I'm waiting for the price of nice OEBT's to fall a bit more before trying them out.

OEBT tend to hold their $$ value because not everyone can breed them successfully. I wish they were cheaper too.

My cherries seem to be doing well so my next step will be CRS. I really want some OEBT but that will have to wait until I can dedicate more time and money than I have right now.

What I really want this year are some Sexy Shrimp! One of my goals is to start a nano reef along with the rest of my tanks.
