Normally they only come to the top at night but now they are at the top all the time. My question is. Are they coming up to the top because the water isnt good. I tested it and all is inline. Or is it because I removed all the fish out and now the only ones in it are cherry shrimp and one otto. U think they figured out there are no more fish and feel safe now to come out in the day light.

I have a feeling it has to do with your water. Now I have seen MTS during the daytime, but that was at the LFS. They are nocturnal by nature. Seeing them at the top indicates they are looking for oxygen (in most cases). What temp is your tank? Use CO2?

I'm assuming you did a water change when you removed the fish?? Are the cherries and otto acting normal?

otto is acting fine. cherries are all out feeding. at work now but have been doing daily wc to drop the nitrate for the shrimp I t was at like at 40 but last night it was done to 20. ph is at 8.4 and kh and others were high but not too high can't remember off hand though. I just want the cherries to be hapy and make babies ;)
