aokashi, I LOVE the photo! They are so cute together. XD
Jake, lol, your poor shrimpies. XD That sounds like a good plan! Thanks for the advice!
Well, update, I bought 2 ghost shrimp from the LFS to see how Dr. Seuss responded to them. One shrimpie was pretty big, the other was pretty small. Big shrimpie got observed and then ignored when little shrimpie hit the scene. Little shrimpie was chased all about the aquarium. But he survived! With clipped feelers and broken leg, but he survived and is, as far as I know, still hiding. I see him occasionally, in the Rotala usually. When he comes out, Dr. Seuss looks sharply at him, but I've yet to see him try very hard to eat him again after the first spat.
But then big shrimpie became the next target of interest. Dr. Seuss did not even try to eat him, but harassed him constantly, seeking him out to bump him and make him move. Big shrimpie never learned how to jump out of the way like little shrimpie. He just moved to a perfect position to be bumped again.
This morning, big shrimpie was on the floor, dead.
Sooooo... I think my fish is bullying my shrimp to death. lol I'm about to put some driftwood into the tank with lots of hiding places (I bought it for plants, the hiding places are just bonuses really). I've got lots of plants and stuff to hide in as well... Do y'all think I should try again? Big shrimpie wasn't very smart. Little shrimpie is much more canny, which is why I think he's still alive. XD Oooooor should I just not bother with it at all?
