    Keeping CRS with others?

    Thank you both so much for your responses, I think you covered everything I needed to hear. I really appreciate your help! I have a tank cycling as we speak. Unfortunately what I had available to be was the Fluval Spectrum substrate that was leftover from my planted tank. From what I’ve read, I’ll have to replace this and when I do, I’ll get ADA Aquasoil.

    Shrimp problem

    Great news. Hope it continues! What sort of tank do you have? How many Litres? What substrate? Anything else in the tank? Filter? Heater? How many shrimps do you have? What water do you use? Do you use dechlorinator? What do you feed them? Tell us some more??? I think they moult when you change some/all water and PH 7.6 should be ok for rili shrimp, so follow Zoidburg advice and don't try and alter it with the Ph down any more! Simon

    Colour of baby shrimps

    We should just call them bloody marys from now. [emoji23] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk I guess we could have some more time to decide what to do with them. Meanwhile, i just stare at the tank for hours. So entertaining to watch! Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks Zoidburg for that info. My wife is coming home with what hopefully will be ceylon. If it's the stuff I'll boil it for 20 minutes (and make myself a cup of tea) and then put it in the tank after it cools a bit.

    Odd deformity?

    Cheers. I assume JayC also notice the carapace which is another reason this looks like a deformity (so the internet tells me). In any case I haven't seen ol' snubby nose the shrimp since about two weeks after this post. I finally got a cull tank set up but haven't seen it. It's not died hidden away, and I've pulled out three dead shrimps which didn't look like above. So it's either moulted and become happy or perished and I didn't notice it was this one I removed.

    winter breeding

    I've had 3 berried females, only one after adding a heater. Two were bloody mary, one a YKK. My YKK colony is pretty young still so first berried female from the group. Unfortunately, a bacterial infection or something wiped out many of the Neos, including many of the babies and I haven't seen signs of the YKK offspring yet... so it could be better! I know many people experience slower breeding in winter. One breeder/reseller said that he put a heater in his shrimp room (small bedroom converted shrimp room - door is often open to the rest of the house with a gate to keep the pup out) which helped to increase breeding. I don't have a shrimp room, tanks are in living space.

    RCS / TIGER Query???

    You are most likely right. I have only ever put red cherries in the tank from one source so assume one had different genes and now they are cross breeding. I got the shrimp off ebay many years ago, so you never really know what you may be getting, but they were all red to start with. I have little interest in that tank anyway, as I have the Taiwan Bee tank now, so can't be bothered to try and fish out all the brown ones as it is pretty densely planted! Simon

    New tank setup for yellow shrimps.

    Great news, the others will be hiding in there somewhere as would be their instinct, but always good to see one occasionally popping out! Simon

    Welcome Brad

    Hi and thanks for having me... I'm Brad, live in central west Nsw. My interests are catfish, woodwork, diecast cars and soon to be shrimp. Have had shrimp before, cherry but want to get some again. I have a 3yr son and a missus. I work on solar farm construction as a telehandler operator. Not currently working at the moment but heading back (HOPEFULLY) around the 23rd of jan to start a new project which will take me away from home for around 6 months. Hope to get to know some of you guys Sent from my A1601 using Shrimp Keepers Forum mobile app
  18. They could be "wild type" Neos. You can confirm this if you put two shrimp together of opposite sex - one red one brown/clear. If the female gets pregnant by the lone male, then you know it's Neocaridina. As per another post elsewhere, you say it came from a blue shrimp... so "wild type" from mixing two different types of Neos together that were not "compatible" and offspring reverted to "wild type".
  19. The standard "dancing" red Sulawesi shrimp (red with white fore-arms and white dots) also come in blue... (i think?) but I don't know how hard it would be to get a hold of them. Sky Fish has them. https://skyfish-aqua.com/cat/觀賞蝦-en/sulawesi-shrimp/?lang=en

    Shrimp death & belly fanning???

    If GH is confirmed at 2, then TDS should be a minimum of ~35 ppm. 1 German Degree in hardness is 17.86ppm Tap water generally runs higher though when it comes to TDS. My tap is, on average, 3 GH and 3 KH. The TDS usually ran around 56-67ish? Which honestly isn't that high! If a TDS of 28 is accurate, then the GH may be around 1.5 rather than 2.

    Shrimp changes color and dies

    Duckweed doesn't mean you have low levels of ammonia or nitrate. Fish stress shrimp out, too.
  22. Did you ever get pictures of the other shrimp?

    Possible tank invader?

    I had something similar in my shrimp tank that looked like a green shrimp but whipped its tail in an almost snake like motion to move. Im guessing you bought aquatic plants from a pet store? That is what happened to me and I didn't do a salt rinse to clean the plant before I put it in my tank. I called the store and they said they get random bugs on their plants since they are imported and I chose to just flush him down the drain. You can also end up with larva or random insects in your tank if you have an open ended tank in say a basement, I get stink bugs and other insects occasionally finding their way in one of my tanks. I would remove anything in your tank you do not specifically want in there.

    Welcome Lizzy

    Yes. You can speed it up by picking up one SSS male and getting that to breed with the females, while the other males are moved out.
