Yes, my best tip would be what I do.
Baby RCS feed off of the bacterium that grows on dead plant matter. Once I added Indian Almond leaves to my tank I upped the survival rate of babies to nearly 100%. Before the addition of leaves I had babies here and there. Once the leaves were added to the tank the population exploded.

I purchase my leaves here:

Great thanks! I have betta fish too so I can just use the IALs I have for them. I will definitely check that site out, the ones at my LFS are expensive.

You should! Amy had a great product, excellent customer service and really great prices. I order the grade "B" leaves, what she calls grade "B" is an "A" to me. Fifty leaves for just a few bucks, you can't beat it, and the shrimp LOVE them.

Yeah Grade A isn't necessary to me, I crunch them up anyways when I steep them. Perfect leaves would just be a waste lol.
