    I think you just gave me a Christmas idea, too! I'm really glad to know I can get it on this side of the pond. I'll probably ask for PFK and TFH for Christmas.

    Okay thanks I will check it out. There was one breeder in Value but some people said he wouldnt replace DOAs. So I would rather stay away from him until I can't find any one else.

    When I do get some I guess drip acclimate them?

    The bad thing is that I can easily have them cashed, and they are worth more...

    I may have to get the 10, what are your recommendations for buying the amano shrimp? I have bought online before but I don't know if they are wild caught or bred. Should I ask them?

    Okay, I will have to remember that. I will have to check a shop that I discovered as I have not found any amano shrimp. All I have seen is ghost, cherry (they were clear though), and bamboo. I would get the ten but I don't have US cash at the moment, I have mostly euro money... weird I know as I live in the states and never been outside of it.

    Okay thank you, and the tank is 15 gallons. So since amanos eat plant matter/ algae, does that mean once it runs out, or gets low I should feed algae waffers? I have two types of algae waffer/pellet.

    I had like 3-4 pregnant ghost shrimp before but they ate all their babies lol. I was aware about the amanos but it is still good info.

    Where is the best place to buy them? I don't always see them an Aquabid.

    Will amano shrimp be fine with ghost shrimp?

    Oooh! Where did you find it? Does it cost an arm, a leg, and a kidney?

    Saw some of your posts when I was googling about how to remove brown algae from plant leaves so I thought I'd turn to you for help. The tank is just newly planted (I think you even commented in the thread, lol) and I had hoped more plants would cut down on the vicious brown algae that plagued the previous tank setup. No dice. So now I'm stumped. I really probably shouldn't put otos in there with a full load of fish already, especially as the last batch I had did such a lousy job that I gave them away. Do amano shrimp eat brown algae? I had some ghost shrimp in there previously and they did all right (didn't get eaten). Or ramshorn snails? It seems like nothing I get climbs onto the plants, only the tank walls. Oh, and I know the phosphates are low. Don't know about silicates. :/

    thanks, im not sure that its food grade, its intentional use is for storage, you can buy them at the dollar tree, but i was wondering if i could build a tank out of fiber or plexiglass? you can buy it in sheets about 2/3 of a centimeter thick, i have a design in mind that will allow me to introduce new fish into my sorority without them being able to hurt eachother so i could observe their reactions to her, sort of in an "L" shape. let me know your opinion.

    im just gunna hit you with my list of q's..... just answer what you can. thanks

    1. do i need a lining for the bottem of the tank (sand gravel etc.)
    2. if i cant use the 30 gallon containeris there any low-cost tank i could use ( i saw some 5 gallons for about 20 dollars, and thats a little on the high end for me)
    3. on that mark, if i can use the 30 gallon container, what sort of filtration/heating device would i need to properly controll it? ( i would really prefer not using the container though)
    and fianlly: about soroities, if i have less than 4 female fish in the tank, will the still be agressive?
