Here's the pod tank. Not looking very nice but I expect the sand and debris to settle by tonight. I didn't plan on filling it up since it's only for food. I have a heater and airpump hooked up so far. i forgot if i needed light for these guys. I do have windows and doors and either side of it if thats enough light.

And wouldnt ya know it the second I put in the shrimp they were gone behind rock. lol The lfs told me that both shrimp had eggs so I don't know if that means I'll have 50 shrimps or if the scooter maybe will eat em.

So, I'm gonna assume that I can keep the scooter alive.

When do you think I can stock my gobies? My water is still stable even with all the extra food I've been feeding. In fact gonna do a small pwc anyways, the trates are at 10.

I am just watching him munch now. It's all over the tank and he's chasing them around. I feel so much better now. I was really depressed about the whole thing.

So you think I'm ready to order my gobies? I can have them by wednesday I think. or try to order them locally but I don't wanna wait. lol

I hope you feel better betta.

This is great but I dint think brine shrimp have much nutrients. I think they are more of a snack or last resort until something better is put in. I may be wrong though.,

Congrats! Depends on which gobies you are going to get. Some have nearly the same body shape as the scooter which could lead to aggression issues. With them in there, you would also need to watch the scooter to make sure he is not getting out competed for food as they are rather slow eaters.
