Hi all,

Have setup my new 91l cube a few months after my previous tank cracked. I was really lucky with only a couple of dish deaths, but did lose a lot of plants, including my Blyxa Japonica which I was really annoyed about.

Loving the fish i have and the Neon Green Rasbora are the newest additions, they are bloody amazing, great contrast to the embers and CPDs. They are really lively, always out front at the top, and when doing maintenance they swim up to me and in and around my hand.

I would love to get a pair of showpiece fish, I would really like Apistos and German Blue Rams. What would work best in my tank? Or does anyone have other suggestions?

And again, thanks to everyone on here for the help and inspiration.

Looks grand :)

I’d wait on the apisto or rams until the carpet has grown in - otherwise those shrimp are “sitting ducks” ... eventually most apisto/rams will go shrimp hunting
Though there are always photos of tanks with apparent successful combinations of these predator/prey, I suspect shrimp were well established first and are actively breeding ..... occasionally you’ll get an apparent shrimp hating fish that will joyously annihilate a shocking number of shrimp within some seconds :eek: :eek: :eek:

Ah I just ordered a pair of Apisto haha. There are about 50 shrimp in there so hopefully they will be ok!
