I have a whole bunch of female cherries.  I'm hoping that this one is male.  Is it??

Thanks in advance for any help!

Also, btw, what color grade would you give this one?

It does look like a male to me if it is adult, I don't think you can tell when they are very young though. I'm not sure about colour grading, I do have RCS in my 'fish' tank but mainly into Taiwan Bees. It is good colour though! I think they breed from about 3 months old and if they are happy it isn't difficult I usually end up giving loads away............

      Yah idk if it would do heaps of added extra for a tank ... I would add more air via a pump before I spent $15 on the device

      Don't know about effectiveness on breeding, but additional oxygen in the water can't go wrong. It's probably better for overcrowded tanks.

      Any Update on the effectiveness of this on shrimp and breeding?

      Id put in maybe a liter or 2 of water (1cm of water in the tank) and put in a couple handfuls of substrate at the base just to help, the other substrate to them cover it which will have the main contact with your water allowing for the buffering effects (and the colour difference if there is one wont be noticed).

      I currently have a small pipe heater in the current tank that i can use for the new one, that technically makes my new project cheaper because i now don't need 2. can i get dimensions of this thank fully assembled including the top cover just so i can determine if i need to adapt my shelving. i don't mind poking out a corner of the tank from the shelf so i can do water changes and i can lift the tank onto another surface for heavy maintenance if necessary. Im really just interested if there is space for feeding without moving the tank.
