Limited Access

You will have noticed that upon joining that your access is limited and there are quite a number of forums features you can't access. Your first 3 posts are held in a moderation queue before being published. After your 3rd approved post, this restriction is removed. We do this to help keep the SPAMMERs out.

A quick way in which to start your post count is to take the time to introduce yourself and tell everyone a little about what shrimp you keep, how many tanks you have, etc...

Other features such as the classifieds and chatroom are only available to subscribing members of the community. If you wish to become a subscriber or view the benefits of a subscriber, you can do this through the SKF store. Subscription and sponsorship fees go towards the purchase and maintenance of all the extra features that members enjoy.

We do not allow classifieds ( buying, selling, trading) anywhere else on SKFAquatics. If you see a thread or receive a unsolicited PM selling/buying goods, please tell a site moderator or admin immediately. The rules that are in place exist to make SKFAquatics safe and fun.

Links to other businesses
Our sponsors help to keep the forum running and also provide some great deals to SKF members. For this reason we do not allow links to competing businesses. If there is a business that you are aware of that can contribute to the SKF community, get in touch with @cesar or one of the mods regarding sponsorship. This includes links in signatures.

Marimo Balls/Moss
"Marimo ball & Marimo Moss" are illegal imports and a protected species in Japan, as such anyone buying, selling, trading, showing photos of this species will have there threads removed & deleted. If you have this Species in your possession you are advised to Contact AQIS for the safe removal and quarantine of it. Failing to do so may end up in loss of tank inhabitants and legal action being taken by AQIS. This topic is not open for discussion on SKF.

Reporting a Post
The moderators are real people living real lives and as such are not on the forums 24 x 7. This means that we may miss some posts/threads that are not in the spirit of the SKF rules.

If you come across such threads and/or posts, you can use the "Report Post" link to let us know. These are usually dealt with fairly quickly as a private message is sent to us. Failing that you can always shoot us a PM.

Happy shrimping!!

      Thanks Simon I don’t think I will have any issues giving them away I just thought I would offer them here first. I’m a member of quite a few Facebook pages - there is a SA one as well- I can offer them on those pages too . Biggest problem is the people who come and get them and then sell off again. I really want to be able to stress they are culls from culls . If I can’t find homes for them I might just buy another bath and put them outside LOL  I’m quite surprised my Tangerine hybrids breed outside too. We get very cold winters and extremely hot summers here. I guess the large surface area allows the water to cool down.

      Those are lovelly pretty shrimp, you are very lucky to be able to keep some outside! It was interesting that you do the same regime of RO water + gh+ outside in the pond. You can try posting in the 'for sale' section of this site, https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/forum/148-selling-forum-livestock/ and/or try gumtree (below link) may be worth a try, https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-pet-products/cherry+shrimp/k0c18438?view=gallery I haven't used it myself, but they don't do post so is only for pick up I believe? I think it is free as well so worth a try???  Simon

      You are of course right that the tank should bed started afresh and if none of this batch survive I won't try any more until I can do a fresh start! I do have the substrate ready to do this but now isn't the time to do it, though I wonder whether it ever will be......... I am pleased to hear you are getting babies, even if they are lower grade, you are heading in the right direction. Blue bolts are  probably my favourites of the taiwan bees. Simon

      Hello again,  Just stopped by to wish you good luck, but if not, may as well break down the tank and start over completely. I hope someday I can have a mixed tank as nice as yours.  So far, most of my shrimp babies have been low grade blue bolts.
