Community Aquarium Feeding Behaviour

Hey everyone, I have created a short (well, not really short, it's 8 minutes long) video documenting some of the behavior of the fish in my 35 gallon community aquarium. Featured in the aquarium (for now) are a school of six danios, one bolivian ram, a bristlenose plecostomous, and one Julii cory.

I am going to be quarantining 3-4 more Julii corys in the coming month before introducing them into the display tank. Followed by a few other species of fish that I have yet to decide upon.

Please watch my video here and let me know what you think!

Also, please be sure to watch the video on High Quality!

Thank you! Yes the shrimp is definitely interesting to watch in the tank, and attracts everyones attention when they look at the tank.

i watched both of your videos and i thought they were both really good. i also liked the music as well, it fit the compared to people who do video of their goldfish and put heavy techno or metal music in it....nothing against goldfish though(as i have a tank full of em)

that...... was a great video,thanks for taking the time to share with us.
i miss my shrimp,i just might have to get some more.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
