I have no experience with amano or ghost shrimp, just cherries. Changing colors seems interesting an glad they are happy and healthy.
Yeah, those danio fry, they don't even try to hide themselves, just swimming openly on the surface. If you are a predator fish you need no effort at all to find them... When they are in a free swimmer fase they do have some avoiding moves, but that is clearly insufficient.
I'm thinking about getting a pair of A Borellii in my tank, but I'm not sure how they will cope in a community tank. There are broken lines of sight, caves and (in a while) a lot of plants. Can you estimate how big their territory is?
I already have whiteclouds and danio margaritatus and the other species I'm thinking about are oto's, rosy loaches and maybe some dario species or a very shy and small gourami species.
My whiteclouds (and maybe some others) will go outside when it gets warmer, so when it gets warmer they will have more space. And in the winter when the temperature of my tank will be between 65 and 68 so I don't think the apisto's will breed then?
Oh and I will replace my cherries to the other small tank if I put apisto's in the big one. I'm thinking about bigger shrimp (like amano) in the big tank.
