I thank everyone in advance for their patience and assistance.

1. Of the "red" shrimp varieties, which is the hardiest and most accepting of a variety of water conditions?

2. Will pretty much all shrimp eat fish eggs?

3. Do shrimp and Bristle nose plecos get along okay?

Thank you.

Well, I guess I can just get a bucket load of otto's instead of the BNs. :)

Lemon tetras are my favorite planted tank "schooling" fish, and they have always spawned for me in the past, so I don't want to put anything in that would eat their eggs.

I have cory fry swimming around with my cherries now, so I know at least a few of the eggs survived. I didn't have time to round up this last batch of eggs before the other cories in the tank got to them. I watched the cherries picking all over them, but I'm pretty sure that they weren't actually eating the eggs, otherwise there would have been no fry at all.

1. red cherry should be the hardest and easiest to care for
2. i doubt it unless the eggs are rotten or unfertilized
3. i have bn in most of my shrimp tanks and they get along fine, although sometimes they fight for food. my bn are dwarf though, i think max out at about 2in or so.

disvegas,

Maybe the shrimp actually help then if they are just keeping the eggs clean.

Say, another question:

Can I fertalize with CSM+B or will the copper cause problems for the shrimp? If so, what should I use instead?

Thank you.
