Bought 10 and they all died on me. I wouldn't own another CPO in a long time. LOL

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

CPO. Great with plants. Occasionally okay with fish and other critters in certain circumstances.

Also colorful and easy to spot in our boxes filled with green stuff.

Love the color, hardy as nuts, prolific breeders, really pops against dark substrate and moss.

Depends on the 'scape. Started off planning to convert a heavily planted tank from cherry shrimp to CPO, but am now leaning towards trying my hand at a sandy-bottomed creek biotope instead, and that'll look much better with the natural looking cajuns.

Sometimes the stock determines the tank, sometimes the tank determines the stock.
