Way to go!

Mine have been breeding for a few months now, but the fry always die after about two weeks. I've got over 20 in there now. Good luck keeping them alive.

Congrats to you, James. No one ever answered my question about feeding, but my fry seem to be finding plenty to eat because they are growing rapidly. Evidently my tank is abundant in the necessary...

I think hiding is kind of the nature of otos, but I still see mine quite a bit. They stay pretty busy. Same with the little guys.

The tank has been fully cycled since early March of this year.

They are the same fish. I think Rasbora is the preferred nomenclature but don't quote me on that. Funny thing is, half of my brigittaes came from a different supplier and they were lighter in color...

In the stock list, it's referred to as a "dwarf paradox pipe fish," so I'm wondering why you asked this question.

Awesome looking fish, btw. Looks to be a good candidate for nano tanks too.

Thread title says it all. It's a shrimp running on a treadmill. Oh, and with the song "Final Countdown" playing. Wasn't sure if I could put something like this in the shrimp forum.

Can't wait to see how this turns out. I think it'd be neat to see you do something with the obsidian. Where did you get your tank from? Also, what kind of filter do you have on it?
