I picked up 4 bamboo shrimp, acclimatized them. I was really upset just as I was going to add them to the tank one looked dead. I was just about to call my lfs to give them a piece of my mind and then he jumped out of the cup and right into the tank. I guess they play dead as a defense mechanism.
And the 4th is hiding right now in the middle of one of the amazon swords

Having a bittersweet moment.. Someone called today and is taking all my fish from the 55g except the otos.. Im excites to change my tank but im gonna miss my Angel n cories ..

Planning on what to do with that tank now n the hubby wants to move his blues to it and add abother pair of mayb orange crawfish so i guess im gonna research it and see what can be done.. then im gonna try and make my 20g a planted tank and add shrimp and snails to it

Did feedings all around and topped off evaporation on all tanks. Changed filter pads on half the filters pwc on my 15g n crawfish tank ... then just gonna enjoy watching my cories for the last day
