philemon716 Thanks for the well wishes! Baby's date is one week from today, but the doc thinks he'll be out before then.

I've reserved 3 juvee CPOs from GordonRich - hopefully they play well in the 4G tank. i have a number of hiding spots for them already and just removed the super aggressive guppie from it. So now in the tank are: 5 PFR, 1 Amano, 1 Oto, 1 Endler, lotz 'o MTS and some worms.

acitydweller Hey all. sorry been busy lately.

i dropped in a piece of driftwood as well as a ceramic log which i acquired from furnfins at our last meet earlier this week.

I had one neo in my tank of cajuns and he is no where to be found. granted it was a bare tank with zero hiding spots then but honestly, i havent checked the floaters so he might still be alive. i added some guppies, moss and a ghost shrimp 72 hours and so far all is well. i also happened to get 3 CPO from Msjinkzd which now inhabit the tank. i think its sort of fully stocked if not over the top so i'll have better chance at looking at their aggression over this weekend with the intent to also rescape two other tanks... well that is the intent at least. Hope all is well with you Weber. Hope the baby is coming along as planned...

chibikaie Gotta post a correction: aquacultured lobsters and not shrimp for the phosphatidylcholine requirement for molting. Sorry, the book only had one chapter on crustaceans and I got distracted while taking notes.

Apparently if you keep them fed they don't pursue shrimp!

I haven't seen them, but if they're anything like the ones in my area close by bonas, you find them small and release them as they grow lol

You probably want a fish that permanently lives in the upper tank. I had some CPD's and Micro rasbora that would go to the bottom during lights out.....then it became lights out for them lol

Ooh that might work if they're quick, and you don't care too much if you lose a few. I'd pick something like least kilifish, because they should make up for losses. I'm not sure lol.

MABJ Them and CPOs will mix like salt and sugar. I also read they'll readily interbreed.

I know these guys are hardier at least.

Bananariot Watch out with these guys. Some are mean, I got a badazz pair that attacked shrimp. They got missing legs and stuff. Certainly nicer than CPO's to a point, but still will attack shrimp if they're mean enough.

Bluek24a4 Too much protein is not to be confused with no protein. Shrimp do need protein, but shouldn't be given an overwhelming amount of it. I look for foods that are in the 30% range and under when you look at their analysis.


Its not that it induces it too early, its that they get too big in their current shell before they're ready to shed it.
