    Well I am preparing a SE Asian tank right now, which will be where the Gourami and Loaches move to soon.


    Then maybe I'll try some amanno shrimp, because i do really love the way they look and scurry around.

    If you have a tank dedicated to shrimp make sure you don't have any larger fish as they will , more than likley , nibble at the shrimp when they molt - which they will.

    Tetras or rasboras would go well.

    You should also look into the bamboo shrimp which gets slightly larger and is a filterfeeder(I believe) which would work well in a planted tank.

    The Bamboo shrimp is also called a "wood shrimp" I think I just saw some on auction on www.aquabid.com .

    The end goal for my big tank is probably going to be Peacock Gudgeons, Ammano shrimp, some ottos, then either a group of rasboras or Cardinal tetras.

    One question a friend raised was if Discus would go after shrimp and small fish with thier well documented timid nature.

    I don't know why but I like the idea of a heavily planted tank with tiny fish in it.

    I have , on the other hand, a 55 in my "workshop" which has some 7"+ green severum in it with a pleco.

    The new 55 will house the small group of clown loaches and blue gouriami with probably a bristlenose or rubber lip pleco for algae control.

    Hello, my name is Skippy, and I have a fish problem.

    Discus will eat shrimp and smaller fish.

    Watch out with the bristlenosed pleco in a planted tank - it will consume the algae present overnight and then rasp on plants, especially larger leaved ones like swords.

    You need to provide a lot of bulk vegetable food for them

    If the ottos and ammano shrimp can handle up on the algae control I might not add the bristle, I have another tank which could use his tender mercies anyways.

    I just set up a 125 and it quickly got a serious hairalgae problem so today I added 16 rosy barbs , 4 black mollies and a few ottos.

    I'll let you know how it goes.
