  1. Default CQ's Snail & Shrimp Picos

    Shrimp this, shrimp that. It's all your fault, and you know who you are. Days and days of talk about your shrimp, until I can think of nothing else. And so the two mini aquariums I've been at a loss with will become invert picos. Both have gravel in them currently (one white, the other blue), though I'm thinking of changing to sand; there'll certainly be plenty left of the bag Mr. Cajun picked up. But beyond that...? Guess you'll have to wait and see...

    "Mine" aren't necessarily the best, but RCS are the easiest for beginners to keep, IMO...no special care or foods required, just a cycled tank with a few plants/deco for them to cling to...and no fish big enough to eat them, of course

    The tank needs to be cycled and free of any copper compounds, but other than that, they'll live and breed just fine

    Do all shrimp tend to breed like that? Or are RCS just unusually prolific...?

    As far as I know, RCS are the most prolific

    The most common available locally (most others would need to be ordered): RCS, ghost, amano, red & white, orange bee. I want something interesting, but that won't take much space or have a lot of bioload.

    If I was to get shrimp with the list you have, I would get the red and white :)

    Pretty, but quite pricey compared to RCS

    Price has no option when you get what you want, says the man that can't bring himself to buy the Redline tetras for 11.00 a piece that he's always wanted, LOL!!

    Price isn't too much of an option, though it might change the spacing of the build-outs. And might possibly involve some bribing of Mr. Cajun to justify, say, an $11 shrimp.
