    Also have a heavily pregnant female sitting close to food and fanning like crazy, I'd say ready to drop the eggs any day now.
  3. Sump or No Sump system is better?

    if you want to use a chiller get stainless steel pipes IN your tank. This is pretty common in Asia. I dont see how your design can be made in a way that the water flows enough the tanks after the first to get any benefit from this design.

  5. No Planaria shrimp deaths

    Not sure if you have resolved this already? Sounds like you had a lot of unseen planaria that have died in the substrate. The bacteria will eventually take care of them but in the meantime, they will continue to fuel a mini cycle of your tank. Nitrates are quite high despite the water changes which kinda backs that up. There is definitely a lag with shrimp deaths after a pollution event. After watching a commercial documentary from DPI on yabby breeding I learned that invertebrates can get crap in their gills and if it's not flushed asap they go on to slowly die (lack of oxygen I think).I have had this happen before as well....... so this leads me to following suggestions ...... 1.Just a one-off big water change 60-80% (do some light surface gravel vacuuming if possible) 2. Increase aeration. Put the top of the internal filter at the water surface so that it breaks the water. Alternatively, add a couple of airstones to achieve the same effect or add an sochting oxydiser ( you could temporarily add hydrogen peroxide which will also increase oxygen levels) 3. Dont stress :) Its too late for that and you can always rebuild. I hope these tips help .....lets us know how it goes.

  8. Pure Tigers

    I keep a tank of pure tigers as well. I think most people keep them separate. Caridina Mariae like serrata are a good foundation for cross projects so always useful.

  12. Worm in tank

    Still a mystery. I don't think anyone has confirmed for sure where they come into the the tank from.
  13. What is this guy?

    Still not certain of just what this guy is but I am leaning more towards wild type cherry with blue gene.
  14. Water Help!

    Get GH / KH for cherry shrimp. And mix salty shrimp into your tank until you get about 180 TDS.
  15. You know there is always one... the prize of the tank, if you are fortunate you have more than one but for most of us, the prize of our tank is clearly the reason we obsess over water parameters, food and thinking about all the off spring that will fill future tanks... So, grab a camera or phone and snap the best picture you can of your favorite shrimp in the tank and upload the picture to this thread! Ready, set, go! ;)
