    With that trimming of the taller backing plants it looks like you have created a greater depth of field and in my opinion the tank looks far better now.

    Ιm thinking to remove the fish and do it a crs shrimp tank.
    It still running with one filter.

    That would not be the easiest of jobs to do in that heavily planted tank. I would still add the CRS and let the fish finish their life in that tank with the CRS.

    What kind of fish are they? What is the flow rate of your filter? Are your goals with the CRS breeding, or just keeping them healthy for your enjoyment?

    So am I now, other than 1 Otto all I can see are those Cardinals and they are perfectly safe with the Shrimps, plus It would not be the easiest of jobs catching those Cardinals in such a heavily planted tank.

    I saw on another forum that he was advised to go fishless if he wants the CRS, if it's the same NicPapa, that is. I'm hoping that's not necessary, as I'd love to have my future CRS with Cardinals.

    hi there.
    Fish as keith said are cardinals.

    There are no safe fish for shrimps,the problem is with babies, expect bnp plecos, corydoras, otocycnlus.
    But , ass those fish are eating same food like crs, they stress them...
    Im running two small crs tank now, i m waiting to have more population to move them.

    I never had a problem with my Shrimps and Cardinals. My tank being heavily planted the shrimp fry had plenty of cover and their main food was in with the mulm. I would be extremely surprised if a Cardinal ever swam at that level and high density of plants. At feeding time the food was always scattered by the water movement any way.

    With what shrimps?
    Neocaridina , are like rabbits.
    When u keep only shrimps in a tank, its very diferent,babies and shrimp dont afraid to move on the plants.
    I saw rummynose , its the same size of cardinals, eating an adult rcs.
    If u put dificult shrimps in the tank, that dont rise easily, fish are a problem.
    Anyway i saw this behavior on cardinals, they dont move alot from plants... and scared easily.

    Going by the Shrimp Farm's article "The Best Types Of Fish For Your Shrimp Aquarium"
    Rummy nose are not listed as a safe fish with Shrimps where as Cardinals and Neons are listed.

    If I was breeding the very expensive Shrimps I would build special tanks for them only.

    Unless you can remove the BN and the eggs safely all you can do is leave well alone.

    Could the BN go out via the outlet and back in via the inlet?

    You will have to decide if you should put a course filter pad over the inlet.

    Babies get out of the filter but i think that was a nice dinner for tetra.
    I have a problem wiht this tank, it leaking, thats why the lower water.
    Remove some plants, to have more waterflow.
