Talking More than one way to out fox a fish

My plight to keep crayfish with Nikolai continues. My rock forts crushed by Johnny the snail. Poor Pinchy Grinchy pushed in corner. Johnny got booted back to Goliath. I had enough of him wrecking my decor. Finally made it to aquarium store I got some shrimp tubes that have worked beautiful. Took some coaxing to get cray to move but now quite happy with his new hides! They had two packs crab cuisine. Bought both! Also got blood worms and more brine shrimp for dinner tonight :) Nikolai can't get his big old nose in those tubes so crays fine. Hand placed some crab cuisine in front of tubes. Only problem is guess who has a new favorite food? Nikolai! No problem I put food in the tube and little Pinchy covered with gravel as to say ha Nikolai! I'm king of this castle. Hopefully the other cray will find his way there. Didn't see when vacuum but could be hiding in Cholla. Love out foxing a fish!

I don't know on the betta column. I assume they do but how well monitored another thing. I had another long talk with the staff. We discussed several possibilities for baffling flow. Apparently they had tried some things so give credit for that. It has a low setting but she said it doesn't filter at all on low. Better for fish I'm sure but probably creates more work for staff to clean the cubes. Gee whiz how hard is it? I do 30 tanks a week no problem. Theirs are small and bare bottom. Change the water and wipe down for algae. Ok getting off soap box sorry.

Thank you on Titus. Can you believe he is a Walmart rescue. He is has turned into such a beautiful boy. I think he has the fullest fins of any of the crowntails.

Cherry shrimp

Moved cherry shrimp to Timothy tank. Have cholla wood and lots java moss in there. Shrimp got so excited and active. Yeah Bryant not trying to eat me anymore! Timothy loves him and wants to play with him. Shrimp about as big as Timothy so I think they will do fine together. Excited because now can see shrimp much better too. Betta Splendid I need a name :)

Hmmmmm...shrimp name, shrimp name. I will get back to you on that.

Neat little hideaway! I think that also serves as host for beneficial bacteria, so a cycling tool also. Nice. Need one in Zadok's tank. Sadly, he is having "fun" with his shrimp. Looks for them constantly and then bites at them and they quickly swim off and hide. Also, I need to find that crab cuisine! So glad you were able to find it.

How about "Tomato?" You know, "Cherry Tomato?" Geez, that's an awful pun!

Haha cherry tomato! As long as Timothy doesn't consider it a nice salad addition with some evening duckweed ;

Gary said "Scarlet." But if you had more and this is the only one left he suggested "Adios." He's sick, you see.

I like cherry tomato...but here, I would name her "Cheerie", sounds like cherry, but happier. :D. Lets pray not "Adios"! Poor little victims. They are loke having pet chickens, EVERYONE wants to eat them...foxes, raccoons, possums, dogs, hawks, snakes, mice (!) and HUMANS! Geesh!

Scarlett is a cute name. So how do you tell if a shrimp is male or female? Sounds like Gary is quite the funny one! If little shrimpy goes Adios, Timothy may learn time out lol. Linda, loving my cholla wood! I may have to get some more. I have a "few tanks" you know :) Not only does it give a really great and natural look to the tank, I love that it also provides great hides for invertebrate. I actually ended up putting the fallen tree piece in one of my smaller tanks. Sam is over the moon with it. He loves swimming all around it.
