i got him from fishchicks and am very happy with him. he shares his 30cm cube with 20 odd red cherry shrimp. am not looking to breed him so have not bought a matching female for him.

thanks all for the comments. he is a cute little guy with lots of personality (a first for me in terms of fish keeping, as much as i like scaping my tanks i have never previously grown an attachment to a fish)

omg the shrimps they are so cute ! he doesnt try to eat them ? i love how they match each other XD the tank is sooo beautiful as well !

yes the shrimp are incredibly cute! i have a tank for crystal red shrimp as well and they are extremely fun to watch (fight over food etc). and yes he TRIES (keyword here!) but never succeeds! he's too slow, dopey and big - his fins and tail is his enemy here.. he gets slowed down amongst the plants and even in the open the shrimp jump away REALLY fast, faster than he can open his mouth. now he sort of just looks at them swims up to them and swims away, as for the shrimp, they sometimes crawl on him to over take him cause he's in the shrimp's way.

lol thanks guys. shrimp are definitely very fun to watch, their little feet move so fast and it's really cute when they are cleaning/eating stuff.

here are some links to my CRS tank:

hey all, thanks for the lovely comments as usual.

the tree thing is pretty simple to do, i found a tiny piece of wood that would work as the trunk, then i just tied some artificial branches to it (stainless steel wire from bunnings) and then tied the moss to some plastic fly screen and hooked the wire through one point in the mesh to prevent it from falling off and floating around.

here's a picture from when i first put it together, you can see how much moss has grown out in a month or so
