Wow, what is that plant on the right? It's very pretty! Is it some kind of lily?

My dodgy shrimp tank started out in shrimp with my neighbour coming around one saturday and he said here have some shrimp. Wanted shrimp for ages just couldnt get the time in to start something. I couldnt say no the shrimp where there. I got about 10 shrimp from him, now i cant count them. There was about 6 females and they have not stopped breeding.

Thanks Squiggle haven't seen much of your tanks really except for the one at work!!!! I like your floating plant I think I need to get something to add to the frogbit because I have realised my yellows don't like the bright light. I've been sitting in my not shrimp room and have all the lights off as it is a bit warm today and the shrimp are coming out of hiding. The light in that tank is extremely bright, might need to tone it down with plants. The tank came with it and I don't know what it is other than a standard aqua one fluro..

It's water sprite, it does an awesome job of growing very fast & also provides really good shade, that's probably why my little ones are always out cruzing around :encouragement:

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon
    • Goshio22
      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
