I've always wanted a butterfly loach.

Then again, I really want a mudskipper, pictus catfish, clown killies, bosemani rainbows, and maybe eventually a red-tail cat. There are too many cool fish, and not enough tanks! I guess I'll be fine with just my honeycombs, for now.

i've got 4 in my tank, it's a really close thing on who'll back down first when they want a bit of food, either my shrimp are related to chuck norris, or their just brave, but they'll steal food from the loaches, the bristlenoses, platty, harliquins, endlers, anyone whos trying it on basically.
the fry are spotted out and about once they are about 4-5mm long and seem safe by then

danios are a no no tho, they just bug the adults, and eat fry

correct me if i am wrong, i have been once before, but i believe that hillstreams appreciate cooler faster moving water than most shrimp will tolerate.

Has anyone kept hillstreams in warmer tanks?

I have keep them in the past, but couldnt provide an enviroment that they saw fit and they all ended up as fertilizer in my garden sadly.

Keep us updated! I'd love one in my shrimp only (plus zebra otos) tank. Good luck!

I've kept 'em in a warmer tank, which now has MOAR shrimp! (The others slowly disappeared) if ~71 is warmer, with less flow, but the flow is strongenough it moves some of my plants.
