    I am not the greatest at keeping ideal parameters so I steered away from them. I stick with hardier fish that can handle a fluctuation. Good luck. I can't wait to see the thriving community of them after a few months to a year.

    I have kept them for years and I use ADA soil and treated tap water, they do fine. I have also kept them in a bare bottom tank with treated tap water. Very nice looking shrimpl

    Thanks! =)

    I use Brightwell substrate and remineralized RO water... I've been keeping neos for about 3 years or so, and caridinas (CRS and CBS) for a little over a year now, and am pretty solid at keeping the params stable (made myself prove I could do it before taking this step lol)...

    My next steps are going to be Fishbones and Stardusts =)

    If these OEBT's do well, I'm probably gonna break down and get them next (if the Stardust are still unavailable)
