Enjoy your trip! I don't plan on collecting while I'm there but who knows, I may find something

Hey Matt, if you're not concerned about them vectoring anything (as far as I can tell my tank's only issue is algae) you can put the girls to your males if they saddle again. Otherwise I'll pick them up next meeting, and you can have them back if they berry again. I now have Cherry fry, too, despite my gravel vac, UV filter, fish and Excel dosing. I didn't know they were in there.
I would like ancistrus. How big do they get, fully grown? Not for "rent", I'd be happy to buy one or two.

I may add a couple male Amanos to that tank and see if they berry up again Congrats on the Cherry fry. They are quite prolific little buggers despite what people about nitrates and Excel being harmful to them.

As far as the Ancistrus, I meant that you could have a couple as payment for letting me borrow your shrimp for a while. I don't think they get much bigger than 4".

Well I counted 12 Cherry fry last night. So I don't even need the girls back for my algae crew. I figure some of the Cherries will survive the fish, they have lots of hiding places and hopefully sustain a small colony. That's what I wanted originally. I bought the Amanos when I thought I was going to have to replace Cherries for lack of breeding. Please keep the girls if you want them. If not, I'll take them back. I am interested in the Ancistrus. Thank you.
