Jawjagrrl Posted March 31, 2022 Share Posted March 31, 2022 Some of you have possibly seen my journals on shrimp in a 2.5 nano tank with the occasional reference to the 5gal that lives next to it, which is home to some rasboras, endlers...and Steve. Steve is a platinum red dragon plakat I sort of accidentally won on Ebay last summer when I was getting the bug to keep fish again. I searched auctions closing that evening with no bids, and there he was. We threw in a lowball bid, not thinking it would be the ONLY bid. But it was, and he came to join us as our first feature fish in my first nano tank. He is prettier in person and a tiny water puppy, but not always nice to his tankmates. The 2.5 shrimp tank is exploding with shrimp, and 4 endler males after briefly housing Steve's nemesis, Donald (my avatar) who sadly passed away mysteriously in December. Steve's current home is 5gal that he shares with 2 nerites, 2 endler males and 7 chili rasboras. He killed the shrimp I tried to keep with him and sometimes chases the endlers. Thinking he might be happier on his own (the rasboaras wouldn't mind either) and am considering moving him to the 2.5 and moving everything in it to the larger tank that was originally intended to be for shrimp and nano fish. The 5gal: The 2.5: I'm likely moving out a couple of the plants to larger tanks, but am totally open to ideas for a new setup just for Steve. What should his bachelor pad look like? Open to any and all ideas, no matter how offbeat! There is a prefilter sponge to the left side to lower flow rate and it does have a heater. Very well seasoned tank, plants and all life thriving in it, so I think Steve would be happy. Bring on your crazy ideas! Let's have some fun here! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
