  2. This is why we end up with MTS (Multi Tank Syndrome). One tank is never enough. You need one for Pure Lines, cause you need to keep some pure genetics. You need another tank for experimenting with hybrids. One for culls. Then one tank again for each variety of shrimp ...

    I found the snails I was looking for!

    I'm on the search for snails now. Everything listed here. Very excited. I love snails.

    Has any body else seen?

    Im guessing some creeks around Vic could stay cool enough in summer for even the fussiest of crystal and tiger shrimp to survive. Of course there is always the possibility that there is a local chameleon type species to be found down that way. Not enough is known about our natives, nor bred commercially enough with dedicated colour morphs being stabalised.

    Caridina babaulti ?

    The shape of the rostrum looks different to babs, I’d say it was something else. You can not rely on colour when trying to ID shrimp.

    Caridina typus?

    Could be. Could you provide a few more details about where they came from?

    Since you have no shrimp yet, then straight into the tank up to the level you want is fine.

    Cherry red shrimp

    Hi guys. One of my cherry red girls is carrying light blue eggs? Never experienced this before and when I look on google people seem to have only experienced green eggs being carried. Help, please. Working on getting a photo of I can but proving difficult These are the photos I could get off her. But hopefully, it shows. Very blue in real life. Camera isn’t good Sent from my iPhone using Shrimp Keepers Forum
  12. I've seen baby shrimplets 6mm big eat Shrimp Kandy Feast. Any shrimplets smaller than that usually only eat biofilm. If you already have powdered spirulina, mixed a bit of it with tank water and spray it with a pipette (pic below) over your mosses for the babies.

    Shrimps are dying :(, advice please

    I’m curious to know the Chlorine level, if 1-2 drops of Prime was sufficient enough to remove that. 1 gal is too small for anything really and you’re going to experience drastic and unstable water parameters because of it. 10% water change isn’t much considering it’s only 1 gal of water and this can also affect oxygen levels in the water as well... don’t be afraid to change 90% of the water 1-2x a week. Whatever water you add in make sure that it’s within 4F degrees of the tanks current temp as to reduce temp shock. Other things to check.. diet and perhaps additional research on the type of shrimp in terms of temp, filtration, etc.
  14. A great little fish, his swimming reminds me of either a person doing breast stroke or a frog swimming, and then he glides like a hand glider. Very lucky to be able to get a nice goby that can tolerate fresh water.

    Fungus in cycling tank

    What shrimps do you keep? Have you try Amano shrimps? They are very hardworking worker shrimps that will clean this in no time. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Newly started tank running into problems

    It depends in your water quality. Do you know its parameters? TDS and GH and KH and pH are good to know. You can add liquid Beneficial Bacteria to help process the Ammonia and Nitrite

  18. Yeah, thanks for pointing out the obvious. 😄

    First time shrimp keeper

    Around 200. When it gets to 250, you know it's time for a water change. Shrimps can be escape artists. They climb out where the filter pipes come in / out. Just make sure the waterline is an inch or two below the top.

    Your tank is back in a cycle. Don't be tempted to rush things and make wide scale changes.

    HELP! pH 4.8!

    OK, just did water tests. pH 6.4 Nitrate 5.0 Nitrite 0.25 kH 2 gH 6 Ammonia 8+ TDS Pen 154 (to be honest I’m starting to not take the readings from the pen, temp is set to 22c in the tank but says 19c). Sent from my iPhone using Shrimp Keepers Forum

    What is Biofilm?

    @fishmosy Lab grown marine Phytoplankton is biofilm correct?

    When you first mentioned the red with the clear I was thinking along the lines of Rilli shrimp but they usually have a red head and red tail with clear in the middle with possibly more red lines also scattered along the body over the clear section. But the one with just a red tail is very interesting. Sort of reminds me of a type of fairy shrimp you can get from Asia. - Stereptocephalus siamensis but they are entirely different to normal shrimp.
