  1. Update: I went with 4 chili rasboras, and could not be happier. They started eating the copepods literally seconds after I put them in the tank, and they even slurp up the detritus worms like spaghetti. They came from a tank with lots of juvenile shrimp, and haven't bothered my shrimp at all even when shoaling. If you want a shrimp-safe fish that will eat your copepods or detritus worms, get some chili rasboras!! Original Post: Accidentally posted this in the new members forum like a true n00b, so im re-posting here where it belongs. Hello all! I've only been keeping shrimp for a few weeks now, but I am already an overfeeding expert. Apparently in my zeal to give my shrimp the best life, I have grown a giant colony of copepods which I am worried may harm my first ever newborn shrimplets (which could hatch at any time). I've read that copepods are opportunists who will eat weaker shrimplets if given the chance. And with the amount I have in my tank rn, I foresee my first newborn babies hatching & being instantly swarmed. I also have 3 or so saddled females, soon to be berried females so I want to protect their future babies also. I cannot for the life of me find any recommendations on freshwater fish who won't eat shrimplets. The recommendations are always with the caveat of "but I have total ground cover/top cover so most of my shrimplets survive." I have a ton of plants & hidey holes, but I also have some grazing areas where it's just a small patch of substrate since my shrimp love to be fed in those areas. I just started with 15 shrimp, so I don't have a huge colony and can't afford for any babies to be eaten rn. I do have an albino bristlenose pleco who is very tiny, but she is a lazy betch and hasn't impacted the copepod population. I should also note I am using a 2g nanotank at the moment. It's a mixed tank with cherries, yellows & blue rilli so I can get a lot of different offspring to separate out and form colonies from in bigger 30g tanks. Here are the fish I have heard work great, but may eat *some* shrimplets: Endlers (males or fry) Ruby tetras Rasboras Pygmy corys Rocket killifish (clownfish) Hatchetfish Otocinclus Ember tetras Neon green tetras Gold ring danios Lowlight danios

    My 110 L Community Tank

    Hey guys, I thought I’d just make a single topic for my community tank, so I stop running around in other chats asking the same questions 😁. I’m going thru a big change in the tank at the moment, so will likely update in the morning with photos once the cloudiness is gone. Be prepared for a possibly very long message about a 10 hour process 😂. Cheerio!
  4. Hey all. So, I'm getting some cory cats in the near future, and I want to know if I need to quarantine them. I know a guy at my lfs really well, and I trust the store, so I might be able to get them to hold and quarantine them for me for a week. I'd prefer to just add them straight to the tank if it's possible though. If not, then I can sort a qt tank soon. Thanks in advance
  5. Ive done alot of research but let me explain my set up for you. I have a 6 gal tank that is approx 12 inch tall. It is a fertilized and currently has a DIY co2 on it, i did this by taking a 2 liter bottle and adding sugar and yeast, it is connected to a special co2 bubble (whatever they are called). The tank also has high lighting and is completely planted carpeted and bigger plants. Im about to be adding in my cherry shrimp and know that gassing them with co2 is possible at night. And im wanting to avoid this of course. Yet i dont want to spend alot of money upgrading my co2 system. The co2 bubblier is only 8-9 inchs from the water line. The majority of the bubbles reach the surface meaning not all the co2 is dissolving or there are other gasses present. Im wondering if I can get away with this co2 delivery system. Or what simple upgrades could be made so that it doesn't run at night? from what i understand it would be at night i would gas the shrimp? Also I do a 50% water change 1 if not 2 times a week. Options ive thought of- 1. Instead of a 2 liter bottle maybe like a 12 oz bottle, scale back the yeast and sugar so there is less co2 being produced 2. Releasing the pressure in the DIY bubblier before bed. so it would take maybe 4-6 hour for the pressure to build up again and start bubbling 3. Upgrading system (Dont want to do this really, but i though of it)

  7. Hi everyone, I was wondering what fish is safe to keep in the same tank with shrimp. I have a fish tank with tetras and a red tail shark. Lately the shark has been chasing the tetras a lot and they keep staying at the top, to avoid getting closer to the shark. Do you think it is ok to move the tetras in the shrimp tank? Attached is a photo of them, the are 1 inch each. Thanks, Dimos
  8. I'm keen to hear from anyone who has first hand experience of keeping correctly identified Otocinclus catfish with shrimp. There's a widespread belief, often repeated, that Otocinclus leave shrimp alone and are safe to keep in the same tank. There are also stories of Otocinclus chowing down on shrimplets, and even in one case on adults, so now that belief is also being repeated. There are many cases of Otocinclus being confused with Siamese Algae Eaters and other similar looking fish. I want to get to the truth. Can anyone who has ever kept definite Otocinclus with shrimp please tell me your experiences and observations? BTW, for ID... These are Otocinclus, with the sucker mouth and spot on the tail root: These are not:
