    I saw some of them down the local school about a year ago but thought they were a WA native and illegal to collect.

    The office staff may have used the 3M pads to breed these guys!

    I've added the blue cherries. I think these are culls though. Tank is now registering 0 Ammonia and 0 Nitrites. Plant growth is very slow to nil so far.

    I have had 50% survival rate from the blue cherries. I am doing 10% water changes twice a week at the moment. Temperature is rock solid at 23. I am hoping they survive enough to breed. I would like to have more activity in this tank. If this doesn't work out, then I will consider CRS (temp has to be perfect tho) or Rasbora maculata x10. I am afraid that the Rasboras will just hide behind the rocks etc though.

    I am surprised the blue cherries aren't more hardy, I thought they would be the same as normal red cherries.

    I've added 10 CRS to my big tank recently, I hardly seem them so I don't know how many have survived, it's definitely a few though.

    My old Red Cherries bred like mad and popped thousands of babies over time.
    My new Yellow Cherries, havent showed signs of breeding at all, and I think ive lost a couple.

    Odd isnt it, kinda wish I went with reds again now.

    .
    Maybe due to more inbreeding? To be fair, it was a freshly cycled tank etc. I managed to keep them alive for 3 days in a bucket tho. I think perhaps there was some ammonia etc in the tank. Likely my fault.

    I've never had an other color cherry survive for more than 8 weeks let alone breed so this is new ground for me.

    Yes, I have had no issues with the Reds; even when whole tanks were getting wiped out due to my errors.

    I saw this one mucking around the rocks today. Hope it survives.

    With my shrimp deaths (now only 4 remaining), I think I have had increased plant growth although only in the rotala colorata.

    UG didn't do well in this tank. Belem HG and larger hair grass are holding on. Weeping moss has had nice thick growth while Christmas moss looks pretty bad (might remove it). Bolbitis looks horrific and the java fern is growing slowly.

    I don't think I am used to the low tech way of life....

    All of a sudden shrimp have become way more active and swimming around the tank. [ Hopefully not in distress ]

    Managed to capture a pic of a blue female.
