Two Questions: Cholla & Neo Interbreeding
1 - I have read that Neos like cholla wood. I have a piece that I purchased for my hermit crabs who never took a shine to it. Would it be safe to just plop in my shrimp tank?
2 - I have ordered some Rilis from ryantube here on TPT. Would they interbreed with other Neos, if placed in the same tank? If, say, I added some PFRs or basic RCS, what would the result be?
It's been a little over 2 years since I had Neos, and a lot has changed, except care. There are new strains (hence, the Rilis I purchased), and I seem to have a lot to add to my knowledge base, especially about the new variations.
I had Neos (RCS and wild (red/brown mix)) in three separate tanks at one point, and they bred like crazy. They just LOVE the water here in the Ozarks. My city is on a well system and is treated with only chlorine before distribution, so the water is full of minerals not found in most river drawn systems.
