Pls advise! Brought 8 super red bristlenose

Recommended Posts

I tried aquabid for first time lfs tired sick fish I figured getting direct be better and boy I’m happy. 
so I’ve had them 15 gal fluval water Parma perfect. From I think name sdaquatica 8 super reds 2 inch long, 30 cherry shrimp, 20 zebera snails. 
so they been in quarantine 2 weeks there very active healthy. Do I really need to trio these or can I just watch them 2 months? Idk how shrimp and 1.5 to 2 inch bristlenose would handle treatment.


but there vigorous that’s also another question, they eat ALOT I mean WOW I’ve been feeding them zucchini and French cut green beans and the eat 24/7 till there’s nothing left usually 2 days worth. 
and then I don’t feed them for 2 days because I don’t want them to explode!!

so can anyone help me out and tell me how much to feed these guys? And how you would handle quarantine? I have wood for them in there also I read they eat that also idk.

I feed the adults once a day in the evening I feed the fry twice a day  it a mature planted tank so they have plenty of micro flora and funa for them to gaze on though out the day
