150, it seems a tad more finicky than other floaters.


Chad, it looks like coffeelia in the pic, but in person you can tell its just barteri broad leaf. The boy was preoccupied with something at the time haha.

thanks bob and cable.

Looking great, but you know I'm your #1 fan. How are the red claws treating you?

The Nonconductive Fan Club...


Other than the fact they have an elaborate tunnel system under my driftwood, I only see them when the lights are off, i never see more than 2 at a time , and theyre always chasing each other, they're great!

i actually do like them ALOT and dont mind the digging but theyre pretty violent towards each other. Are they always like that?

I really am hoping theyre not picking off my embers in the middle of the night.

Tank looks awesome NoNC. Still weird not seeing all the overgrowth on the top, but it makes the tank look so much longer for some reason (probably just me lol)

GREAT QUESTION!!!! I think we should move this thread somewhere else due to lack of pictures. Can't belong in the PHOTO journals forum!!

Then we should keep moving it each time NonC finds it again...

That could be fun! Whatddya say, Sara?

the nonconclusive fanclub is for people who aren't quite inconclusive.

the initiation rites are horrible though.

The males can get a little aggressive at times and the females get violent during breeding. Arms are often detached seen flying across the tank. But seriously, I just found an otherwise healthy shrimp dead shortly after a territory battle ensued. Generally, the fighting happens when another male is trying to become the alpha-shrimp. The dominant male gets the other to back down and goes back to ruling, the lesser male doesn't back down and a fight breaks out until one looses. The looser either accepts their position in the hierarchy or they continue to fight to the death. These guys like to have a Harem of females to themselves and don't like to share.

At least, this has been my experience. I am not sure if they are after your fish or not. I have noticed a decline suddenly in my otos. I am not sure if it is my water parameters still or if they are being picked off. So far, the fish seem to fight back when prodded.

hahahah nice sig!

so can i be a fan of myself? or would that be too weird.

thanks for info, i have a feeling my alpha is a big bully. i havent noticed any attempts to take down fish, but i also don't sit and stare at the tank when the lights are off. maybe thats what i will do this saturday night. and while im sitting there i can wonder where my life has gone and what wrong turn did i take to lead me to this point...... of staring into a dark aquarium, by myself, alone, on saturday night, hoping my fish are ok.

im probably being paranoid, because they just walk right over the bristlenose and corys....

Yet Another Reason to Move to Florida- fewer tornadoes here.

Hope no one gets hurt!
