Mine was shrimp. I tried them twice before and they didn't last long. So this time I tried again with shrimp from 2 different sources and they are doing great. I had bad luck with CPD'S but I tend to think that was the source too. Can't find them locally.

Dwarf gouramis. Screw those guys, they used to always die on me within a few days.

Kuhli loaches. Had the hardest time getting 100% to survive QT and make it to my DT. Even in there I don't know how many I have, its at least 4 with max 7

GBRs have given me some trouble in the past. I never could get them past 6 months. Decided Apistos were for me! They are the only fish that I can't keep alive but everything else is a go. My wild caught hatchets and my Farlowella cat have done awesome though. Even though Ive only had my Farlowella Vittata for about 3 weeks now I think he's going to be ok because he is eating well and very active. Ill give GBR a try again one day.

Hearing this about shrimp and kuhlis worries me a little, heh.

What kind of shrimp seem to be the most difficult to keep? I've heard Amanos are pretty hardy if you maintain your water parameters. They're also larger too, which is a plus when the most common thing I've heard about RCS is how quickly they're eaten by other fish! haha

Mine's been wild Altum Angels. I've tried numerous times, even had a pair spawn once but nothing came of it. Since there were no RO filters back then, I may need to try them again with different water.

Just Googled them. They really need a low ph. Sounds like it would be quite a project. Do you have a source for them currently?

It's funny when starting this I was expecting a lot of fish I had no idea what they where but so far it seems like common fish give the most problem


Keep calm and drum on
