 Hi  Sameer,
 That  is  precisely  why  I  asked  Trevor  the  question.  I  only  have  3  RCS  left  from  the  batch  I  bought  out  of  Nautilaus  and  I  would  hate  them  to  be  consumed  as  Feast  by  the  Rasbora's  isn't  it?.
 
 I  have  not  moved  my  RCS  as  yet,  we  will  still  go  tomorrow  to  get  the  Celestial  Pearl  Danios  from  Nautilaus.
 
 Only  question  would  remain  is  should  I  move  my  RCS  from  the  current  small  tank  to  my  2  ft  tank  with  these  gr8  looking  fish  and  Endler's
 
 Regards
 
 Royston

hi  dabbu
 not  bred  it  till  now,just  been  a  month  since  i  got  them  .trying  to  get  all  info  abt  them  from  the  net.
 
 hi  trevor
 does  it  mean  that  they  cannot  be  kept  with  cherry  shrimps,or  for  that  matter  any  shrimp.i  currently  have  them  in  a  tank  with  cherry  shrimps,but  not  observed  any  predation  or  declining  population.
 please  advise  ,then  i  can  remove  them  to  another  tank.
 
 thanks  and  regards
 sameer                

 
 Samer,  they  will  be  no  increase  in  the  RCS  population  in  the  beginning.  They  will  go  after  the  shrimp-lets  at  first.  Later  on  over  time  you  may  find  no  shrimp.  Unless  they  have  some  real  good  hiding  places  but  still  it  is  a  matter  of  time.

 how  big  do  these  fish  get?  i  think  25-35  mm  is  their  size..they  remain  at  mid  level  in  my  tank,while  the  shrimps  are  mostly  at  the  lowest  level.ok  i  will  move  them  to  my  3'  planted  tank.(they  get  a  business  class  upgrade  on  your  recommendation====2'-------3'tank)
 thanks

 Hey  Sameer,
 Just  something  that  came  up  to  me  this  morning.
 
 At  Nautilaus  if  you  do  notice  the  small  tank  that  they  have  next  to  the  counter  has  Celestial  Peral  Danios  and  tons  of  Shrims  (RCS)  and  the  last  time  we  went,  didn't  we  notice  a  lot  more  shrimlets  moving  around  freely.
 
 I  am  sure  the  Rasbora's  there  are  more  peace-loving   Chuckle  or  probably  waiting  for  the  food  to  multiply  to  a  point  that  they  can  then  have  a  feast  once  and  for  all   Cheering  .
 
 On  the  more  serious  note  Trevor  both  self  and  Sameer  have  seen  both  the  RCS  and  the  Rasbora's  living  in  total  harmony  in  a  tank  which  is  probably  1  Ft  or  even  less  and  with  negligible  plants.
 
 Regards
 
 Royston

 The  favorite  food  of  fish  is  shrimp  and  the  favorite  food  of  shrimp  is  fish.  
 
 This  depends  on  the  size  of  either  the  fish  or  the  shrimp.
 
 When  food  is  plenty  and  abundant  neither  may  strain  itself.  
 
 There  is  no  question  of  them  living  in  harmony  or  either  of  them  becoming  vegans  especially  when  food  is  scarce.
 
 I  hope  you  guys  will  give  better  informed  statements  after  keeping  the  fish.   Smile

 Hi  Mortis,
 Thanks  for  the  information.
 Where  are  you  based  in  Mumbai  ?  I  need  to  learn  the  keeping  and  breeding  techniques  from  you  Mate,  if  you  are  willing  to  download  these  advice  to  me?
 
 Regards

 Ha  ha,  I  am  no  expert  fish  keeper  or  breeder.  Most  of  what  I  know  is  stuff  I  have  read  on  the  net.  The  only  active  breeding  I  have  done  is  of  Zebra  danios  for  a  laboratory  project.  The  other  breeding  that  has  taken  place  in  my  tanks  is  of  Guppies  and  RCS,  both  of  which  is  pretty  simple  -  water  +  male  +  female.
 
 LOL

 Hi  trevor
 i  liked  the  irony  of  your  statement
 
 The  favorite  food  of  fish  is  shrimp  and  the  favorite  food  of  shrimp  is  fish
 
 Well  said  mate
 
 was  not  sure  of  the  second  part,but  was  able  to  see  it  live  yesterday  when  one  of  my  tetra  died,  it  was  being  devoured  by  the  rcs  armies  piling  over  the  dead  carcass
 
 Regards
 Kiran

 hi  trevor
 got  your  point,it  is  logical  since  fish  eat  shrimp  and  shrimp  being  omnivorous  scavengers  ,fish  is  a  part  of  their  diet.
 
 will  be  very  careful  in  keeping  them  well  fed  so  they  are  not  tempted!!!!!!   Very Happy   
 thanks
 sameer
