I'm breaking down >_> I think I may need a few of these. Just trying to figure out if they'll be ok with Least Killifish and shrimp. Hmm

It was the new ones. As I was getting them ready to put into the tank I realized they had died.


Side note they do seem to like to dig. One of the crabs made a little cave hole underneath a clay tray. He/She is also the one that took the big piece of food all for himself.

I might eventually put some shrimp with them after I have had them for awhile. The other option I want to try is doing a sand substrate tank, and seeing how they like that. I read that the females partial bury themselves when egging up. Right now they are in Eco Complete substrate so not sure how well that would work.

I would probably go with adding some Malawas' actually they seem to be even more hardy/tough then cherries.

So pretty! Do they change colors depending on certain factors?

To be honest I do not know. They may change depending on the food.

Mine go after newborns...but they also go after their reflections. I have more issues with the shrimp bullying the fish!

I do believe they also eat plant matter. I saw what looked like one munching on either some dead java moss or live java moss couldn't tell that well, but it could have been something else.
