I'd kill for BTOEs lol. But in all reality I just want to start a SUCCESSFUL CRS colony.

Great choices! I'm assuming you have previous experience keeping Caridina sp? OEBT's can be a bit finicky expecially during the warmer summer months.

Awesome choice, but as I stated about the OEBT, BTOEs are even more finicky so be ready for a challenge.

Tigers! All of the tigers! I think all of their variations arw so cute! Also more Sulawesi (especially cardnals)
Pretty sure I'm the only person that has no desire for CRS/CBS lol

Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!

Low grades because this will be your first time keeping Caridinas sp. Cantonensis? I'm curious because most folks seem to waste their time keeping lower grade crs while they can easily take on SS-SSS grades just as easy. They are just as hardy IME.

Don't count on it. It's easy-to-keep shrimp or nothing for me.

Vampire Shrimp are Atya gabonensis.

My vote is those Carbon Rili Shrimp.
