Well I have been looking for RCS and I was nagging redChigh for some because he sold me some nice RED RED ones. I have also been looking at every other RCS compatible shrimp. I am a little picky on quality...but I am willing to pay for well bred ones. I'm not sure what to go with anymore...whether I will just wait for my RCS to reproduce or get some of another breed..decisions..decisions.

Are you up to your ears in RCS or something?
Yes, up to my ears. I'll gladly send you some for FREE! I started with a handful and now have TONS. I even added some additional adults because I didn't want brother/sister/mom/dad DNA mixing all over the place. Not an Alabama/Tennesee tank, lol. Add some Almond Leaves and they mortality rate is nil. My tanks (had to add a second, there were so many) are CRAWLING with these guys.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Free is hard to pass up...hmm..I want to make a responsible decision. I was planning on changing around inhabitants in my tanks. I only have so much room to work with. I only have small tanks. There are a few things I have to research I think before I make a decision...you may know some of the answers off the top of your head..

Can crabs co-exist peacefully with RCS and snails?

I really want either some crabs or crayfish with my nerites and RCS...if they can I can adjust the numbers (bioload) accordingly.

Check out these adorable crabs I found on aquabid (didn't research their parameters yet but i love them.

craw fish

i have only kept fiddler and watermelon crabs and both will be easily consumed by crawfishes...with most crawfish they have to be kept single unless very well fed and even still you want to keep the same species as they will consume one another....they will destroy all the plants in the aquarium as well as oppurtunisticly eat just about any other creature...particularly at night...they do have an extremly interesting habit of rearanging and constructing its sorounding habitat....i have an austrailian blue lobster wich takes food from my hand when hungry...they are awesome pets just best kept alone...as far as crabs most of the differnt fiddlers can be kept communaly but males will quarel in small quarters...all of wich are opportunistic ....beware slow,sleeping,or stressed fishes...ADIOS....
