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:

When you get all settled in your new place can you let me know if you still have some to sell I think it might just be what my tank needs

Looking good Justin, but didn't you end up with a rack system?

      I have just done the planned weekly maintenance and 10% water change and everything 'seems' to be going very well, I saw 12 blue and 9 panda shrimps so am very happy about that as there are always some hiding (and they are small) so there must be more than that at this point. Early days yet (especially with the off parameters) with the blues only been in the tank for a week and the pandas for 2 weeks. Not seen any dead ones yet and the shrimp seem happy enough and beautiful colour and pattern, all small so must be young! Parameters were TDS 159, GH 7-8, KH 1-2, PH 7 yesterday so still a bit off the usual ideal! Hopefully these figures come down slowly in time, I used pure RO water for the water change so Tds should drop 10. I will get a different PH test kit with a narrower range/increments as the one I have measures in .5 increments over a wide range which is probably a bit much. I bought these shrimp because the sellers parameters (PH 6.8) were the closest to mine so hopefully it will work out long term. I changed my zerowater filter as well, as the old one was measuring TDS 6 so passed its best. I will definitely overnight drip acclimate shrimp in the future, not that I plan any more in the forseeable future. I will add/edit photo when available, hopefully later today.

      All done now, I drip acclimated 11 blue bolts and 6 blue steel overnight and they are now in the tank so now is just wait and see if this works. 28 shrimps have now been put in and I have yet to SEE a dead one so fingers crossed! A couple of pictures of some below; I don't plan on buying any more shrimp so plan this to be a blue shrimp tank, though if it doesn't work out I have seen some female bettas I would like, but hopefully the shrimps will work out. The water parameters are still the same as before, so a bit off! I need to sort out what foods and shrimp stuff I have in the drawers and cupboard tomorrow as it's been a while, hopefully I find a shrimp lolly so I can give them one/part of those tomorrow, and it may bring as many of the shrimps out as possible.  Fingers crossed everyone...........
