Great tank. Do you have any problems with shrimp eating fish? If you don't, then reply to this thread

thanks

nope no problems that I know of. The only fish I think that would eat or kill the shrimp is the gold ram. The loaches just hang out together scavenging, the tetras aren't a threat. The shrimp don't eat the fish either.

thanks john,

the plants are all colorful. The pics are bad so, I mean, the tank looks better than the pic shows.

Not bad, I might have to try some crypts some time. I'm really getting sick of fast growers, hate to prune them everyweek
