Alder cones or toys? Hmmmm


Haha, my shrimp always go ballistic when I put new alder cones in the tank. They can't figure out if it's food or a toy but it must be taken down...LOL

Enjoy

Not worried that your CBS and OEBT's will crossbreed? Or have they?

ravensgate,

Where you get them from is important in terms of quality and dependability. Would you mind PMing me where you got it from? Thanks.

msjinkzd/Rachel on here is where I get all mine from. I keep them in all my shrimp tanks. Replenish them about every two weeks, wait for the others to get really eaten down before I yank them so sometimes I have quite a bunch in the tanks.

I have one in my tank that came with some shrimps 6 months ago, it is still there. Shrimps graze on it once in a while, but most of the time they treat it like anything else in the tank.
