I added 5 Amano shrimp on Monday but they hide so well I can't see them all now. How well will these breed in a tank with fish?
Never kept any shrimp and don't know anything about how they breed. They sound interesting though.

They are brillient cleaners :)

Mine hide in the plants at the back of the tank. If any fish flakes land on the gravel they are out, pick them up, and take them back to their hiding place. Its pretty amazing how they know there are flakes there. Within a minute they are out and gone.

I have ordered them some bamboo with java moss over it but its not arrived yet.

Has been an interesting 7 pages of reading. I just had a massive disaster today that sent me looking for answeres and I found this site.

Don't mean to hijack your thread, just felt like that it would be senseless to start another since yours answered so many good questions.

I have had a thriving tank ( well my daughters) for 4 years now. Only ever had 1 fish die and that was a green spotted puffer. We had a total of 10 fish including the two glo-fish we added yesterday. Well along with the two fish she wanted new gravel to match her favorite nfl team. So we evidently did a huge no-no.

Emptied the tank completely, washed everything down, including the filter. Filled it back up, added the water conditioner. Aclimated (sp) the new fish, put the old ones back in. Presto, this morning all the fish have died except the betta, and the algae eater. But even these 2 are no acting normal.

The water is now cloudy, but from what I read this is normal. I would assume it's just time before they meet mr. tidy bowl too.
Is there anything else I should do to get this thing back up and running?

God, my daughter is going to flip when she comes back this weekend

Thanks,
