OMG tiki.. Hopefully everyone warms up and is fine!

What is normal RCS behaviour? These things are zooming around the tank picking/fingering the IAL and moss lumps. I think there is one carrying eggs, or it looks like it. And the babies are like impossibru to find- one is in the salvinia. What if one dies?!? How will I even know.

Bekah, healing vibes! And hugs! Maybe some dark chocolate (70% cacao) and black coffee might help?

It's normal behaviour! You want to normally do a slow acclimation. But cherries are hardier than most.

If you have a nice thick layer of salvinia it should take care of most of the water params. I have it in mine and the tanks are perfect.

Uh oh, I have demented kitty.

Actually laki I just took a few shots of a lady fanning herself, lemme see how they turned out!

OOOOHHH! sexy red!



yea, I need to clean the outside of the tank. Not the best, but you can see the belly of greenish eggies.

EDIT: yup, that looks like normal Shrimpy behavior to me! If you see them picking for food off the moss balls ,that's normal. IF you see them hanging onto salvinia roots, normal. Flitting about, normal. If it's the males swimming about in a frenzy there might be a ripe female! Also, how big are those floaters!? They look an inch long or more!

they're so cute ladies! i want shrimp but my monsters would eat them rofl.

Tylenol seems to have helped a bit. Hopefully enough that I'll feel alright all day at work today. i'm at the point though where i just want to sleep.

Good good, thanks Silver! Okay there are definitely three mature females. I can see where the eggs will be. And I see a dark saddle on one. None of them are swollen with eggs like yours there lol But they will randomly fan the pouch. I don't know what that means.

Yes, my salvinia is ridiculous. It grows long like this on the side of my betta tank with the light. More filter stuff flowing out for food I guess.

Aw Bekah, I wish I could take your headache from you.
