I don't have any marbles and Renoir has a taste for caviar. Problem solved. I think if your danios are going to lay eggs, your ghost shrimp will probably eat the eggs first chance they get (I had one that would eat literally anything he could get in his mandibles, then he made the mistake of taking on a giant goldfish and I ended up picking him out of the filter in bits).
=S too fearless for his own good poor guy. i have java moss in the tank. it's used as a rcs nursery =) i do have baby shrimp in the tank so i'm thinking my java moss has done it's job fairly well protecting the little buggers so far. hopefully my danios will learn from them. amazing right i got predators in there and the baby shrimps are still alive
