I had to go to three different pet stores to find Anubias, and the place I finally found it at had a small selection. Sould I get this one http://rfidiscus.com/shop/products/A...na-244-36.html or this one http://rfidiscus.com/shop/products/A...na-243-36.html?

Honestly not certain what the difference is between those two. I would go with the traditional Anubias nana.... mostly because it's cheaper.

I;ve got a roughly 2.5 and I have an anubis that is doing well (no idea what variety, it's the smaller version tho). I just let it float at the top of the water. It's his bed, he's happy.

If you get ghost shrimp, get only one for that tank size, maybe 2 if there's lot's of hiding places for them.. I bought four yesterday, since I figured they're fragile and wouldn't all survive a long car ride, but they all did, and over night there's only two left alive in the tank o-o I know Gilbert didn't eat them because I think they creep him out, he kinda avoids them as best as he can, but they will kill each other! So yes, one ghost shrimp would be okay :p

They are really fun to watch actually :p they climb up the tank walls and they actually work really hard finding food, plus they have basically no bioload. Just make sure you ask for a larger one if you get one, since your fish would be less likely to try and eat it :p

Alright, if I am able to muster up my courage, I will get a little shrimpie for Jalen. And I'll make sure it's too big for him to pick on. :)

You can try cherry shrimp, they're much more attractive, but may be harder to find unless you go to a fish store :p
