    Fish + shrimp = bigger fish

    No way would your shrimp make it with those fish in the tank with them.

    Rule of thumb is if baby shrimp can fit into the a fish's mouth don't add shrimp. Especially if you're planning on adding those bees

    I finally decided move all big fish to my 29 and keep the 4 month old swordtails the Fluval shrimp stratum is for them the babies to go underneath and maybe buffer ph my tap water for a miracle is 6.7 so going to keep crystal red and crystal blacks later with any profit breed male Taiwan bees with the crs (michlings) so I can get a pretty healthy population will post photo after getting order of Fluval substrate

    Law of the jungle. Survival of the fittest. If they survive they will thrive to produce some healthy shrimps. I had no problems with micro fish eating shrimplets. Feed them well and they tend not to go hunting but then again my crs Bloody Mary and carbon rili aren’t pricey like TB so best of luck.

    Ph is still high for crystals. They like it at 6 or 6.5 gh 4-6 tds 100-150 so just be careful when not using ro for caridinas. It's not impossible for them to survive in tab water but you're setting yourself up for a uphill battle. Good luck
