Hemirhamphodon

Anyone ever kept or bred these halfbeaks? I saw some pictures on Wet Spot's online gallery and was blown away. Seems like they like soft water unlike other halfbeaks.

Your parameters seem quite good (unless you have your heart set on Rift Lake cichlids or melanotaenid rainbowfish). There are many plants that need soft water to thrive and will fail to do so in hard...

Is the trapped air a recurring problem? I have been using the BRS peristalsic pumps so far but they are expensive. If this one works well it could be good for use with multiple tanks.

Depending on how big your tank is more might help. 7 nerites kept my 46 gallon tank spotless.

If your water is on the harder side nerite snails would be helpful. They are great eaters of hard green algaes but unfortunately don't do too well in acidic water.

3 nerites will be plenty for your tank. When I had a 46 gallon bowfront tank, 7 nerties completely wiped out any form of hard green algae.

Haven't really kept either, but as an owner of a 4 ft 120 gallon tank I think fully grown adult discus would look kind of cramped in that size tank.

Some larger copepods that can be found in tanks get to be around 2-3 mm in size - potentially harmful to certain fish fry but probably not for the average shrimplet.

GH Fluctuations

Would lowering GH (via water changes w/ RO water) by one degree a day for a few days in a row (ending at a suitable dGH) be harmful for plants or fish?

Heck even adult RCS aren't safe from neons if they're hungry enough. I'd definitely look into separate housing if you're serious about raising shrimplets.

I was more wondering from a nutritional standpoint. I've had fish eat flake opened years prior in the past, but this probably wasn't the best for them nutritionally speaking.
