That's a good idea. I've been putting the I know are females and are culls into my kids gold fish tank. He loves them but maybe I'm being to hasty and not letting them grow out enough.

Solid parents nothing but garbage babies :(

Not sure what's going on but I bought a few rcs that are nice solid red but every single off spring is a cull. Three gens in and all culls.
Should I buy new breeders and be done with it?

RCS or glass shrimp

I can't tell if this is wild throw back RCS or a glass/grass shrimp. Anyone want to hazard a guess?

I keep guppies with my rcs with no issues. The colony grows, I see babies everywhere but I have tons of cover for them to hide in. When I cull I put out favorite food and just wait for them.

Where is it leaking from. There are sealants that you can apply to the outside of the tank if you can drop the water level below the leak.
