Confused journey of another nano


I'm pretty sure shrimp are dying here and there. I no longer see 2/4 tangerine tigers.

Granted there are lots of places to hide, everybody is out for feeding... And I am seeing less I believe. Several berried mamas dropped their eggs. I believe it is because they're new mamas, however.

Perhaps I should consider removing the least Killies, as much as I love them.

The males are smaller than my smallest shrimp. I probably could keep males only. Put females in with my crayfish? Not a bad idea TBH. I'll remove fry as I see them, sell the new adult females.

Hmm.

Anyways here's a little update.

Hi, just checking in to see if you don't think your CPO eats shrimp babies!?! I am thinking mine do.

Like your tank. I saw the pic of you old Cherry shrimp!

Hey there! Long time no see. Good to hear from you.

I know they're cuties. But they'll most likely pass away soon. At least they'll be passing their genes on. That's all any organism wants to do.

And the CPO probably does eat what shrimp/shrimplets she can catch. She's rampaging a little because she finally feels better after being very injured for over a month. She's getting a new tank as soon as its cycled.

Woah what an epic RAOK!! I'm just sorry so many people can't read lol. You'll put your own spin on that tank, and I'll be following along.

Thanks for the flattering link!!

I've been super busy lately. I just applied to the journalist team at the Buffalo Bills and I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I even have a package I need to send out I'm a week late on :/ but school and jobs come first.

Anyways. I saw some of the berried mamas resurface. So I think there are just tons of hiding spots in this tank.

And as I usually post a picture, how about a shrimpcrobat

He's not trying to escape. More likely getting at the brown goodies on the mesh. And even more likely trying to get to the thriving moss in the compartment in the back.

I know right!

Ok guys. So call me crazy, and I may just be super fickle, but I feel like the 'community' vibe isn't doing it for me.

Three questions for everybody:

1: Would you get rid of the fish? I like them, but I feel like in moving and such, they would be better off elsewhere. I would consider keeping just males.

2: I would like to keep a uniform shrimp color kinda.. Would it be ridiculous to move neos elsewhere and start a uniform colony here?

3: What color would be best in a very green tank? Orange, yellow, pure red or blue.

You're crazy. That said, I guess do what keeps you happy/interested in the tank. I like the idea of mono-species tanks (even with plants...), though I'm not sure I have the self-discipline required to do so.



Good complimentary colors follow the lines straight across. So, for green you're looking at pink, red, or blue

Red it is then!! Thanks for that color wheel. Although I loved my TTs. They just didn't make it when they decided to visit impeller land over and over

While I did attend a state college in my senior year of high school, I am at a private institute now called St. Bonaventure.

I like Rutgers just fine, and I've got friends at that school.

As per state schools in general? Lots of students, larger classes, less professional professors, far more 'diverse' professors. As in barely speaking English lol.

That was my take on them after a year at one and several visits when selecting a permanent school!

I should add there are benefits of state schools as well. Relatively healthy budgets, low price, diverse friendships, sprawling campuses and large communities usually around them.
