    We needed the snow so much, too. It's been so dry and I don't want a drought this summer. >.>

    Removing Katana and redoing the tank before the shrimp come sounds like a good plan. If you do an NPT, I'd definitely do a sand cap. Remember what OFL said. Make the bottom soil substrate like 2" and the sand cap an inch or less.

    Well, since snow has been so scarce this winter, I don't blame you a bit for taking a snow day. :D

    Wow! Was it a school trip or do you have this week off?

    Take lots of pics of the shrimp when they come. I don't know if I've ever seen a Sakura red shrimp. :)

    A brood is their young. :) And yeah, haha, for me, the name Sakura came from the anime Sakura Wars.

    Yeah, those shell-dwelling ones are neat. And small. I heard when they are defending a brood, they will bite your hand. Fierce little things. :)

    If you silicone the rocks together and also place them on the bottom of the tank and not on the gravel, the chances of them falling are slimmer. That way, the cichlid can dig without undermining the stability of the rock base.

    I don't think ghosties eat RCS but I'm not 100% sure. I guess you'll be finding out. :/ I hope they don't eat them.

    Hey, sweet, congrats on winning the RCS auction. :D

    Haha, yeah, I fished two of my shrimp out of my divided 5.5 gallon and put them in the community tank. The other ones didn't want to be caught. Oh well.

    Yup, you're right, Java Ferns apparently have a bitter taste so they won't bite them. Since those grow best on driftwood and rocks, they have a better chance of surviving than swords. They can't be uprooted like swords.

    Haha, your family history is pretty interesting. My mom is almost all Swedish with a bit of English and my dad is French-Canadian and most likely Scottish.

    Yeah, except for dwarf cichlids like Bolivian Rams, it's pretty much impossible to have plants with cichlids unless you plant th em in flowerpots. Even iif they don't eat the plants, they'll still destroy them digging, like you said.

    Haha. XD Whitney was kind of a bummer of a name to have in the last few weeks. "Are you named after Whitney Houston?"

    Yeah, big fish definitely need to be double filtered. Overstocking depends on the aggression. If they really aggressive sometimes overstocking helps because there's no room to be territorial. I hope to have an African cichlid tank with Malawi peacocks, socolofi, and brichardi someday soon. Or at least, I would if I hadn't just gotten three dojo loaches that'll need a big tank when they grow up. >_> I gotta learn to walk out of pet stores without a little bag of fish.

    Platies would work for the sorority too. They also drop live fry and they don't get as nippy as guppies/endlers sometimes do.

    XD Haha. Yup, my given name is Whitney but I always hated it so I go by Meg. Fishman loves to tease me about that. XD Although, I still answer to either one. Unless it's my parents. Then I pretend I don't hear them if they call me Whitney. XD I'm rotten that way.

    It's not just the bettas on Aquabid, I end up looking at the cichlids and the livebearers too.

    Yup, I'm happy with my easy shrimp too. The major problem is any fish messy enough to feed a bamboo shrimp or other filter-feeding shrimp is also going to be big enough to eat it whole. O.O
