    Ok, thanks for the input. I have tried giving them Hikari Carnivore pellets, but they did not seem to like those. I will get some that you recomended. They always seem to be picking at the java moss and my anacharis that is literally growing a foot a week. An air stone is definitely on my list for this weekend then. The aquarium is becoming a forest with all the plants, but Cherry shrimp like that kind of stuff.

    So I purchased an air pump and stone which is working fine. My concern is the shrimp though. When I siphoned some water, I got two more dead. If I have been counting correctly, that means I have 3 left. Is it possible for them to even start a colony? Or should I buy some more off of Ebay? Plus what if they are all females...I can't tell.

    IIRC the more extremely red ones are the females, The males are more pale/translucent.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    Beebz I'm sorry to read your down to three shrimp at the present time and I know if your anything like me your first impluse is to go get another 12-20 to keep the colony alive.
    That said, why not wait and see if the ones you have left are going to stay alive for a week first before adding more?

    If after a week the survivors are doing what they should be doing, do a water change and then go get some more.
    Just a suggestion from someone who had to start over himself.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    Sadly, I am down to 2 shrimp. I dont know what I did wrong. I checked the parameters and all were good. Any ideas for something interesting in a 5 gallon tank? I guess shrimp arent the thing for me.

    Guppies?
    Small fish?
    Snails?

    Ideas are much needed!

    Disclaimer: I have not purchased from there it's just a decent number of species for you to research to see what suits you.

    Also search 'Micro-rasbora'

    The more you find out about them before you buy the better off everybody involved will be, Good luck.

    Maybe one or two mini moth catfish would be good. It is awfully hard to find info on them tough. Any ideas of what they like/ how they breed?
