Glad I'm not the only one to have that experience! My nano fish won't touch the small fish sized NLS pellets either. I have to feed that tank flake (or frozen) only.

How big is a peacock gudeon's mouth - like would ember tetra sized fish be at risk of getting eaten? I'd like to add a pair to my 30g nano-fish tank, but not at the risk of getting the other...

My guess would be they belong to the jumper and have just done a good job of keeping themselves hidden and uneaten for a week :) Love your male btw!

I personally wouldn't trust ghost shrimp with cherries. Mine weren't "aggressive" per say, but they were certainly very active and would routinely snatch food away from fish that were 3 times their...

The harlequin rasboras have always done really well for me. Cardinals, not so much. And I haven't even tried rummy nose because I expect they'd be similar to the cardinals. However, I have very...

Look at ember tetras. As others have said, they're better suited for the tank size, and (at least ime) they're good schoolers.

One female will get endlessly harassed by the males. IME, they're just as bad as male guppies. Either go all males, or you'll want two females for every male.
