Yeah, I found a RCS in my crayfish tank a few days ago -- have been looking for it to pull it out, but have not seen it yet.

That was all of it. Enough to cover a lot of stuff, hope you have enough glue! I go through a whole tube of crazy glue doing one rock.

I had a 5 gallon I was trying to raise a copepod / daphnia culture in to use as live food, but I was actually having better luck just with jars on the windowsill, so I was cleaning it out the other day to turn it into a spare tank for rearing fry or to use as a quarantine, and found a half grown cherry shrimp crawling in the detritus on the bottom. No clue how it got there. It is right next to the shrimp tank, but that tank has a glass lid on it and I've never transferred anything between the two. I have to assume it crawled out and managed to make it to the other tank.
I tried to keep a container of daphnia once. It all died out after a couple of months. Now that I don't need it however I have it living in one of my shrimp tanks.

Hello all,

I live in North Boise, and am a fish nerd. I have 6 tanks from 5 gallon to 55 gallon and in them have shrimp and tropical fish. Plants are my fav part of my tank and plants are the most hated part of my tank. If I only loved them I could let them go, but since it is a love hate relationship I will keep battling for what I want them to look like and keep getting something different,hehe.

Drop checkers? What kind of weird game is that, and why would they sell it at a fish shop?

Oh, I bet it's played by dropping checkerboard cichlids somehow, right?
