Tyveck I am actually about to put up my entire 12g crs/RCS tank with plants, moss and drift wood. Would anybody be interested?

Clayman How many of you guys are still on this thread? I know zero people in Nashville that keep aquariums. I'm up for swapping/selling plants and livestock. Got a whole bunch of baby peacock gudgeons from a pair in my shrimp tank. Just curious to see who is still around.

Tazalanche I'm in Middle Tennessee too. I live in Lafayette & work in Gallatin.

I got my first 8 RCS from Critter on Sunday. They're in a 1/2 thickly planted low tech 20L with 6 rasbora, a clown plec & 3 pygmy cories.

I've been caring for freshwater fish off & on since 1993, but burned myself out on the bigger fish after a few years with discus. We have thinned down our active tanks to 1 discus tank, 1 angel tank, 2 guppy tanks & the above mentioned shrimp setup.

Since it's the wrong time of the year to consider shipping, I'm hoping to head to Pet Central in Bowling Green, KY this weekend to see if they still have any RCS, rasboras or pygmy cories in stock so I can double the quantity in the tank (after QT) with stock from another source to strengthen the bloodlines if/when they start breeding.

Anyway, hi fellow local shrimpers! I know I still have a lot to learn about proper plant & shrimp care, but at least it's cheaper to make mistakes than the thousands we spent on discus.

Klinckman I'm curious as to what water conditions you are kept the CRS? I've been tempted to get some, though I'm still using tap water(with prime).

I thought you were probably waiting for the ones in the more normal pH tank to grow out a bit. They're still pretty small yet. So no rush.

Klinckman Sis is here in Franklin near me. We have a bunch of plants also. As you know that neos interbreed, so it is likely better to keep them in separate tanks from the orange.
