Yeah, the danios are all over the place, and I try to do about a 20% change every week or so.

I just lowered the temp last night so I'll observe them this evening and see how they are doing. ...

I try to keep it around 78 at the moment. House gets...

When you say adding more isn't going to be bad, you mean once I return the danios?

See, this is the problem. No matter the size of the tank, you can always go bigger, and there's always the guilt of not providing the fish with more space!

Seriously though, I'll be setting up a...

So you think taking those new danios back is the best option? I hate to do it, but I think it may be the best option. I just can't see cramming more fish in there as being a positive thing.

Wow, those are pretty. I imagine I'd never get to the point where I'd ever even know about cool species like these.

The Boisterous Pearl Danio

I have a 20g high with an aquaclear 50, heater, etc. When I first set it up I had 3 bloodfins, shortly afterwards increased to 5.

I bought a trio of Pearl Danios because I wanted a dither fish to...

Update. Sorry for double post.

I did a series of substantial water changes. The ammonia was sticking at 4ppm, the fish were acting funny, and I'd had enough. I got the ammonia down to .25 ppm. ...

I added some to my 5 gallon Betta tank. They're so strange. I don't tend to see them much, unless I'm overfeeding, or if I peer into the tank at night. Although recently they've been coming out to...

That's good to know. I was planning a blackwater tank for my 30 gallon and wanted to use leaves. If there are no shrimp in the tank, I should remove them after about a week or so, yes?

But if...

Also I've been doing lots of...

I have never heard of these crabs before, but after doing some research they sound amazing, and your setup is perfect for them! I'm envious, it looks fantastic.

I've heard they are hardy, and I was already interested in them anyway, so I thought why not. In a group of three they do seem to be skittish. I'm hoping once I get more they liven up a bit. I...

I don't see a huge problem with the fish you have listed. Be aware that most fish have the potential to eat shrimp.

As far as plants it really depends on other parameters, like what light you end...
