Have you checked the gravel to see whether they are hiding in there too? If they're in an abandoned tank, it might be due to lack of current/food at the bottom?

I have a crapload of these, esp in...

Would probably look at the various tetras - very common one are neon tetras, relatively easy to spawn but apparently notoriously hard to raise (not that I have tried it). Most come out tiny and need...

Possible, but one of the least likely fish to jump IME. If you get these to jump, everything else will too.

I think it'll figure it out eventually. Smaller pieces of food is a good idea, softens up faster in the water and is easier to swallow (they have tiny mouths).

I've kept them between 73-80F. When they bred the tank was at 77F so I would suggest that range is probably fine. I reckon they could take hotter too.

Yep, looks like an Oto fry to me. Not sure it will survive in the shrimp tank, usually there is too much grazing competition.

I've almost never cured a Sphaerichthys spp once it's gotten sick - would expect the worst.

It can work in a pinch but almost any other fry food out there is going to be better...probably not the best thing to be feeding juvenile/adult fish either.

Without knowing the rest of your stocking, probably, you just have to supplementary feed them more to maintain them long term.

Sounds fine to me.

Keep in mind they grow to not-so-little - roughly 2x the mass of other Otocinclus.
