oooh!! Cool. Gold Gouramis are very pretty. Wish I could see pics of the snails they sound pretty.

Is this your first time with ghost shrimp? The first time I had ghost shrimp, I was mezmerised for days, sitting in front of my tank and just watching them. I still do that, but not as bad as when I first got them, lol.

congrats on the new inhabitants!

Don't get too attached to your ghosties... they all have a big sign on them that says "FOOD" and they tend to disappear when you're not looking.

What did you pay for the ghost shrimp?

Yes, if you are getting shrimp I would stick tot eh ghosties as if they become a snack it generally isn't too costly, unlike Amano shrimp.

Gold gouramis are my favorite of the bunch I think - especially when they display. Their fins get such a rich, deep gold. Watch when you feed, they are absolute pigs. Mine break the surface of the water getting to the food, as if they think this will be their last meal.
