    Airstone or Venturi?

    Thanks! Decided my current setup is good enough in terms of aeration since my sponge filter is connected to an air pump cranked all the way up. The outlet of the sponge filter is also in the flow of the canister so that should help generate more surface agitation [emoji1360] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CRS Tank Log

    That's exactly how I would start with selective breeding for higher quality. Separate as many good shrimp as you can into another tank.

    CRS Tank Log

    My 'thing' is variety so I would just remove ones that I'm not keen on, or if I get too many of one/lower grade and need to reduce numbers! With all taiwan bee types you never get the boring natural types you get with neocaridina over time! I guess if I was to want to concentrate on one grade I would get a smaller additional tank and put those shrimp in that and just keep moving them from tanks, to the right tank as and when they appear as babies but of the wrong grade for the tank they are in, if that makes sense, and you still have the mixed tank to enjoy. I don't know how you tell what genes the shrimp are carrying or what the offspring will look like thats too advanced for me? Simon

    Thanks Simon and jayc. I have several grades and patterns amongst the CRS. How do you guys think I should go about more selective breeding? Pick a quality I like then separate a few that have that quality? Lizzy

    Airstone or Venturi?

    as long as you have good surface movement you will have plenty of oxygen. air stones and venturi setups don't put extra oxygen in the tank as the bubbles are too big, all gas exchange happens at the surface. The only exception is if you run c02, you need no surface movement and the plants provide oxygen.

    Success! Thanks so much guys. Appreciate the help.

    Airstone or Venturi?

    The purpose of both is to make small bubbles and swirl the water around. I have both an airstone and also an attachment that adds bubbles to my filter outlet. I actually find the airstone more useful for two reasons: 1) When doing powdered food like Bacter AE, I turn off the filter so as not to draw the particles into the sponge. I found that the airstone actually creates a lot of water swirling even on the far side of the tank. 2) For the same reason, if doing a H2O2 treatment where you don't want to drag water thru the filter media, the airstone is good The advantage of the venturi-type system is that if you adjust it right, to have only a few bubbles worth of air intake per second, it can actually be nearly silent

    Hi @Crabby v2 try signing in to your old account, I was able to change the theme for you, I believe it should work now.
  14. Hey everyone! Been awhile since I've had the time to post actively on this forum but i was just wondering if anyone knows if an airstone or a venturi attachement (like the Eheim power diffusor) is better for a shrimp tank? I kinda already have a canister filter that I can easily hook up the attachment to but im just wondering if theres any difference between the two? TIA! P.S I already have a sponge filter running but ive heard that increasing oxygen content in the water could improve shrimplet survival rates

    It looks like your old account is there with all your postings etc so hopefully Cesar can just reset it. If you click on the LATEST ACTIVITY tab at the top and scroll down can you see your other account and click on the profile picture and see everything that way for now???? Simon

    Welcome Crabby v2

    Yep, exactly. Then my whole account stuffed up. Can't even change accounts on any devices I was signed into, instead I'm having to do this from another account I luckily never signed into SKF from.

    So which theme were you on by default? The IPS Default theme? And then you switched to "Default" ? Is that what happened?

    This is one for @Cesar to investigate.
  21. Yeah just heard back from Dave, they've stopped shipping livestock for now. So yeah. Gonna have to wait until they start back up, unless I see a gumtree ad appear or something. Anyway cheers fellas.

    Heya guys... so I did a thing... So this is me, Crabby, and I've had to make another account due to something dumb I did on the other. I found the 'theme' toggle last night. So of course, I clicked it once to see if there were any other options to spice it up a little. Aaaaaand I found the 'IPS Default', and the regular 'Default' below it... and of course, I had to see what the difference was... For anyone who hasn't tried this before: don't. The difference is you literally get shut out of the account on any device you are signed into the forum on, and your screen for SKF will only ever show a blank page with a row of type at the top, claiming the theme or template is out of date, and I have to run a support tool in the AdminCP to restore the original theme. - [[Template core/front/global/globalTemplate is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme.]] @Cesar, @jayc, @sdlTBfanUK, how do I fix this?? Cheers. And sorry. ...whoops

    Beginner question.

    Shrimps don't need tall tanks. So long, shallow tanks are great for viewing shrimps in. And being not too tall, they fit perfectly into racks. Shrimps also don't need very large tanks. A 2ft tank is more than enough.

    Beginner question.

    I am just getting started with shrimp. My s/o is fully on board with giving me the basement for the tanks. That being said I have an empty 55 gal. And am looking to make a substantial tank purchase. I was looking for a recommendation on whether to go with 10 gallon or 20 longs for the tank setups. Any advise would be appreciated.
