I bought some asparagus and it turned soft, not spoiled just limp not good enough for humans to eat anymore. Would shrimp or fish eat any part of it?

I would not. Think about the poor neons that have to live in constant fear of their lives. Once the angelfish grows up they are on the menu. These are living things, not objects there to "look...

Definitely add 2 or 3 more otos. I would move the neons all to one tank and make the 10 gal a shrimp only tank. You could add another shrimp species that can't cross breed with the RCS. Tiger shrimp...

Does he have a cave to hide in or under? They are very territorial and he might not have accepted his new tank yet. 80 is a little too high for rubberlips, 78 is the upper limit, 75 would be better....
