Nice looking bunch. I wish I'd gotten those kind of prices. I paid about $24 for my 20. Tank looks great.

Are we talking about red cherry shrimp.
Never kept mine with tetras, but my understanding is that many tetras will chow down on shrimp fry. The java moss will certainly help, but I'd be a little...

Meh. You can probably house up to about 100 in a 10G if thats all thats in there, from what I understand. I only started with 20 (10 from one guy, and 10 from another). With 50 you'll fill up the...

I'll echo that you need lots of good plants. The shrimp love to work on eating things off the plants all day long. If nothing else throw some java moss in there. RCS are pretty tolerant of things for...

As mentioned, fish can go about a week without food. In a planted tank, I think shrimp and snails can go even longer. They actually eat microorganisms off the plants and algae in the tank. I have to...

Yep, you're good to go.. I'd say the corys could stay. They might snag a shrimplet or two, but I haven't heard of them being voracious shrimp hunters like guppies and tetras. The RCS will be very...

I haven't kept OEBT, but RCS are like roaches. They'll survive a nuclear bomb, if it doesn't have copper in it.
Seriously I had a tank I started for RCS and had to move them in quick because other...

The crypt looks a little like the c. wendtii 'tropica' I recently got, but I'm not sure. Mine isn't that 'crinkly'.

The moss looks like java, but sure is staying close to the rock.. think a fish...

What kind of shrimp pellets? See if it contains calcium (probably does, but doesn't hurt to check).

As for temp, they typically are happiest around 75F, but they adjust to quite a large range...
