size and compatibility
I am setting up a 29g brackish and looking at a few choices of livestock. I have seen varying information and would like advice and experience with some of the following. I have listed a summary of the info/ mis-info I have seen for each...
I have read these will grow to 3" in length and are very community friendly. prefer semi-planted environment and live food, such as crustacean
reach anywhere from 5" to 12" but closer to 5" in tanks. tolerant of other tank inhabitants, but prefer live food such as ghost shrimp, black worms, small fish. also like semi- to well-planted, and top dwellers. like other archers as tank-mates and tanks size of 50g+
similar to above, anywhere from 5" to 10" in tanks, similar diet, and like other scats as tank mates. bottom/middle dwellers and detritus "cleaners". also read tank size of 50g+
Current tank inhabitants include 5 rainbow, 3 female fiddlers, and at least 5 ghost shrimp. the shrimp are expendable, the crabs maybe, but dont want the rainbow to be messed with. current salinity is 1.003
