I love RCS. They are easy to care and breed.

Oh duh. I read about the Rili being bred from the RCS the other day, just didn't even think about it. Thanks for the reminder!

Yeah, I think having a shrimp only tank would be really cool, especially a heavily planted one with RCS or Rili Shrimp. They would stand out so nice in there! Maybe you should try setting on up Chocolate? Fluval has a nice kit for it that I would like, but I don't think I'd be able to keep them at home without them being terrorized by my cats, and one tank is enough to have at work.

Please feel free to correct or confirm, but I was once told a sign of a healthy shrimp colony is them descending on food....

And so, my feeding frenzy! (forgive the snails, they come too)

just acclimatize as you would a betta. make sure you have plenty of cover in the tank for them. if its rilis or rcs, uoyou really dont know if the betta will eat them. it's a gamble

It really is a flip of the coin, whether the fish will chomp the shrimp or not.
