CPDs, Amano Shrimp and Me!

Postby tress29 » Sat Apr 28, 2012 9:50 pm

Hi everyone, my name is Theresa and I'm new to the forum (and relatively new to CPDs.) I've got one male and three females in a 10 gallon with orange sand and some live plants. I did a 40% WC today while I acclimated some new Amano Shrimp. I took out a big rock that was in the tank because the CPDs always hide behind it. Reading through other posts, it seems like they are pretty shy. My computer sits next to the tank, and I'll often see them swimming about, but they duck and cover when I stand up. Not even food lures them out. Do they need a bigger school?

That's the first of my two questions. Should I get more CPDs and how many could I stock in this tank?

Or could I add a white betta to my current stock? (The betta is in QT right now.) I'd thought about a dwarf gourami as a "centerpiece" fish with the CPDs, but found a betta I liked before I found a gourami.

I originally setup this tank for a pea puffer, but I'm not gonna let one eat my pricey CPDs!! I really don't have room for a bunch of species only tanks either though...

We are in the process of converting a 75 gallon garter snake tank to a fresh water tank. One of my boys wants a rainbow shark and I had to explain that it just wouldn't work in his 5 gallon! He wants to put his gold dust mollies in the big tank, maybe I could steal the 5 gal for a puffer?!

Anyway, that's my fish story today.

When we convert the 75, I'll have to look at schooling options. Had half a dozen black skirts in a 55 about 15 years ago! Since then we've done the nano thing, everything from 16 oz with a snail, to 10 gallons.

BTW, I ended up putting the white betta in the tank. He's prowling all over the tank, just checking things out. I'm seeing the cpds because they are moving to avoid him! They are a little pale. I'm keeping an eye on them, making sure he's not chasing them around. I'll let you know how the experiment goes!
