      yeah my 1st bichir ate 50 platys in 2 weeks in my 1st tank so I bought him his own 55 gallon and bought an albino and 4 prawns as tank mates in the morning I found his body and I was pissed. This was the 1st month I had fish so I didn't really understand about compatability

      All this time I thought only freshwater lobsters are capable of such aggressions. Now I think I must be aware of the macrobrachiums as well when they grow bigger.

      With that being said, macrobrachiums doesn't usually last long (those large ones of mine are big exceptions) because when they're moulting every several months or so, they are very vulnerable. Even their fellow shrimps will attack them.

      So, after learning about your bad experience, I evicted all my large shrimps and add more guppies. Since my morays started to develop a taste for bloodworms, it chases the guppies less often & seems to prefer the worms, so, less wasted worms, thus the role of the shrimps as feeder+cleaner can be taken over by the guppies.

      thank you for the thread. You have me interested in E. Rhodochiluses. Do you know how long your friends have had their E. Rhodochiluses in full fw setups at this point? Also do when these guys are caught in the rivers is near the mouth of the river or far upstream?

      My rhodochiluses has been in full FW for at least one and a half year before I bought them & moved them to a low-end brackish tank (average 1.006-1.008 sg).

      They were caught about some kilometers away from the estuarium/rivermouth.
