PineSong Posted January 14 Share Posted January 14 My 29g had approximately 500 red cherry shrimp in it. Every surface at every time of day was bedecked with shrimp. Then I decided to move my baby angelfish in there as backup in case of any livebearer fry after discovering I'd had stealth males in with my female guppies 😞 There was already a lot of cholla and rock piles for the shrimplets to hide from the livebearers, but I added even more to give the shrimp more places to chill without harassment. They can basically go the entire back two inches of the tank without being exposed, due to cholla and coconut husks. Not good enough! One week in, when I look into the tank I see 3 shrimp. If I drop in an algae wafer after dark and pop the lights on, I see maybe 20. My angelfish used to be a pale little dude, silvery with just a bit of yellow toward the front. He has grown visibly and appears much more yellow with orange up front and running up his dorsal fin now. I have learned a hard lesson about the hunting prowess of baby angelfish. I hope the shrimp population can hang on undercover until the fry threat is past and Kevin can be relocated. Meanwhile I will add more fry hides. 1 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
