I plan on picking up 10-20 RCS today while in lansing, and maybe a sponge filter to compliment the HOB on the tank for them.

Definitely go with the sponge filter shrimp love to pick food off them, and remember you need to cover the intake of your HOB otherwise lil shrimplets can and do get sucked up into the filter.

Picked up some CBS over the weekend at the GDAS auction. Sorry to cut into this thread but how often do I need to do w/c?

I have them in my 10g with RCS and guppies.

My total experience to date has been with Neos so take this FWIW. Hard to know, except that shrimp like stable water parameters and low nitrates so you have to do water changes as often as you'd need to to keep the nitrates down with water that matches pH, gh, etc.

Regular water changes I've heard people talking about is something like 25% every other week I think?

Normally using remineralized RO water.
Top offs are a good idea too.


And no troubles cutting in, especially when you have an important question.

Ok thanks. I'm thinking I should definitely move my guppies now into my 55.

Shifting them however you can, so everything's comfortable and happy.
Best of luck with your shrimp.

Well out of the original 20 fire reds I can find 4, I'm not sure what is happening and never see any bodies but the OEBT seem to be doing well so thats good I guess.

Good so far I was freaking out everyday because when I first look in the tank I don't see any and then I eventually find one then 2. I figured that I only had 2 of the 8 survive but then the other day right before I turned the lights out I counted 4.

i've had good luck with sticking bloodworms in the tank in a low flow corner.. they seem to come out of the woodwork then!

Ok thanks. I'll have to try that out. At first I thought I lost all of them but they just have good hiding spots.
