My experience when stuff died is that the blood reds lived when skunks were gone. I think the reds are more hardy. Happended with me a few times, skunks dissapeared and the reds lived. Just FYIing...

Well, the skunk will be going into a very well established aquarium, and I doubt I will have any other issues than thew neon dottyback giving him a good once over.

I thought shrimp needed some time before going into a tank....maybe that is starfish I was thinking off?

Anyway I plan to move him later today.

The tank he is going into finished cycleing, and the nitrates are around 5....think he will be ok in this water?...I have had him for a while and xenia eater or not, I dont want to hurt him.

Do shrimp add heavily to your bio load?.....or are they light on your tank.....this is a new tank, and I have to add some clowns I have already purchased......I dont want to crash anything!

Shrimp is almost no bio-load. Since he needs a home to behave, I'd go ahead and move now. Starfish, hermits and snails are good starts as a cleanup crew. Not a large # yet though. If no fish yet, throw a bit of food in there maybe couple times a week (if it were me). Then, they'll get fish leftovers when yu get some.
