Alright, so the cherry shrimp experiment isn't going so well. I found a dead shrimp two days ago, thought it was the heat wave. So I took it out, counted the shrimps and could only find about 3-4 (originally had 8-9) but there's lots of hiding places. This morning, i find another shrimp, with his back ripped off in the middle of the tank. Ah great. Well i'll jump in the shower, then clean that up and feed the fish before I head to work. Get out of the shower, and the shrimp is gone. He's been attacking the shrimps at night when they're most active. And, there are very small ones, which I thought wouldn't survive, but he's gone after the large ones.
When they're gone i'll look for another friend. Maybe an octo. A large snail worries me cause of all the plants I have in there.
