I'm breaking down >_> I think I may need a few of these. Just trying to figure out if they'll be ok with Least Killifish and shrimp. Hmm

It was the new ones. As I was getting them ready to put into the tank I realized they had died.


Side note they do seem to like to dig. One of the crabs made a little cave hole underneath a clay tray. He/She is also the one that took the big piece of food all for himself.

I might eventually put some shrimp with them after I have had them for awhile. The other option I want to try is doing a sand substrate tank, and seeing how they like that. I read that the females partial bury themselves when egging up. Right now they are in Eco Complete substrate so not sure how well that would work.

Well neat. If you decide to keep some cherries in, let me know.

I would probably go with adding some Malawas' actually they seem to be even more hardy/tough then cherries.

So pretty! Do they change colors depending on certain factors?

Mine go after newborns...but they also go after their reflections. I have more issues with the shrimp bullying the fish!

I do believe they also eat plant matter. I saw what looked like one munching on either some dead java moss or live java moss couldn't tell that well, but it could have been something else.
