well, in the near future, i will be switching hobby... from huge fish to tiny shrimps..
i started with 3 sets 2 females/1 male ratio of Black rili, blue rili and a fire red shrimps
my intention is to see how they can adapt with my system of filtration and how would they
breed in a simulated river banks condition in a tank...

shrimp require different parameters than fish.... thus they will not thrive well
if the condition warrants for fish.... for planted tank...i am not sure ...
plus...shrimps are good snack for fish LOL!

this kind of fish is too expensive to be a snack...
