Hmm swordtails... I shall look into those.
Do they need to be a group of a certain number or can you do just one or 2?

Oh okay, that's good to know! If I did, I'm guessing I'd just get a male. I'm looking at info and pics on them now to see if it's something I would want to/be able to pursue.

I was just feeding my danios (love food, one of mine shoved two flakes in his mouth and swam off with the other fish chasing him) when i rememerd that when you feed tetras make sure they are slow sinking food, not floating. If you are feeding flakes or crisps, dip them in the water and then feed incase of swim bladder problems


Are you interested in shrimp?

Yes, I've noticed that danios are quite ravenous. It's definately a feeding frenzy!
I am interested in learning about shrimp. I think they're pretty neat, but until I get more info on them, I can't really make up my mind:)

well a good shrimp to start off with are ghost/glass shrimp. There quite hardy, they eat some alage, and they help clean your gravel. They are also extremly cheap (i got mine for 30 cents each)

Wow sounds good all around!!
I'm guessing they can get along with most fish?
Now I'm really interested in them.
I'm not so sure about the swordtails.

Oh and once the ghost shrimp are older and you can see them clearly, if you look closely you can see them digesting food or you can see their organs.

They get a long fine with my danios, occaisonally my danios would nudge them curiously but the shrimp are very very fast.

That is so up my alley!! You have no idea!
Stuff like that is amazing to me.

Was yours a baby when you got it? Do they sell them older, or are they almost always sold as babies/young? I read they are usually sold as feeders.

i got mine as babies but they are too big for danios to eat and i think danios dont like the taste.

When your lfs are catching them just tell them you want the big ones.
