Shrimp Tank Photo Thread

here my only tank, I guess it classifies as a shrimp tank as it has shrimp in it :p

Will be viewed front on and side on from the bed.

Quality of scape and shrimp is pretty average compared to what I see around here, but its my first real attempt at aquascaping and the first time I've had any shrimps so its a start :)

Looks awesome amkr. Love the scape, especially the cave/river/road in the middle.

Cheers guys.

I'm interested to see how the CRS survive the tank, they seem happy enough at the moment. If they do okay in the water then I'll look at adding a few males in to seed the population.

Just saw this picture.... 3-4g running all these breeders...

Now I am thinking about tearing down my 2 foot, and covering it in breeder boxes.

Only thing that stops me is the noise of these. There has to be a quieter, and simpler way.

You may be able to run the breeder boxes with a customised spray bar on a powerhead, possibly quieter than air-driven. Personally I'd be afraid of so many boxes breaking even a bigger tank. I'm planning to make a large divided box for inside the tank with a spraybar.

      ✌️   Absolutely only use bleach as the last resort, with nothing in the tank. (6parts water to 1part bleach for future reference). Even white vinegar is safer and probably just as effective for removal of planaria and worms. After you clear the old tank of gravel, give the glass a quick wipe with a vinegar soaked kitchen paper towel. Rinse and let dry in the sun. Use vinegar if that wasn't clear.   Set up the new tank as desired. If your other tanks are free of pests, you can use the filter media to seed this new tank. Wash the filter media in the water of the new tank. Yes, it will be dirty for a while, but you will have seeded it with millions of beneficial bacteria and probably cycle the new tank in a week.   PRL, real PRL, are pretty rare in Aus.  They will demand a high price for them, so check the legitimacy of the PRL. Find out the PRL history. Nice looking CRS is not the same as PRL.

      Thanks. Think I'm going to order from Pro Shrimp, get 5 cheeries and 3 amano, just to play it safe.

      Dang I thought u might say that... for some reason the guy at my rlfs (relatively local fish store) recommended them instead of honey gouramis as a bit of a feature fish. Are there any other ‘feature fish’ style fish that wouldn’t munch on my shrimp, or should I just have my endler trio? I’ll check out the page.

      Hi Simon,  Thanks for the warm welcome! I've been using the GenChem No Planaria; honestly it worked so well the first time and most of the snail population/worms all disappeared and i tried to remove most of the larger rotting worms but didn't have a single casualty, they were Neocaridinas and i guess they were much hardier. But i did notice the packet wasn't sealed properly when I went back to use it a few months later. I haven't seen the SLAqua Z1 available in Australia before.  I used to own a marine aquarium previously with fish only; then i changed after a few years to a planted aquarium with CO2 and then to a smaller set up with shrimp. Currently have three tanks (2 foot with RC Shrimp, 1 foot cube with BB and another 1 foot cube with CBS); I've never had to really restart a tank but would rather consult SKF then have a crack at it myself. I wasn't use if using bleach to rid of all the hitch hikers was the right method. And i have no idea what ratio of bleach to water I should be using for a 27L cube. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!  Yeah i think RO water at stage 6 would be a bit over kill; especially with the time it takes to make the water. Thanks for that. I've got about 40-50 with about 10 as breeding adults and the rest as juveniles still; I'm not a picky person when it comes to culling; I'm enjoying the hobby not as breeder to sell to others. I'd figure it would be good fun to pass the time, water changes and watching the little fellas shrimp around picking and prodding at things. Also i have no idea about the F1, cross breeding, taibees, taitibees, etc. just more interested in seeing the differing colors.  I set up the CBS and BB tanks at the same time which also sit next to each other; the CBS population has exploded to about 100+ shrimp where the BB is a bit slower. Is that quite common; are BB more fragile? I thought about trying to have a got at PRL. Any advice? Cheers, Dan Hey jayc, Thanks for that; phew lucky i bought a spare way nack. Yeha i have lots of denitrate left over. Also hello fellow Sydney-Sider! Dan

      There are so many varieties of food you can be feeding them. Have a read of this Food & Nutrition section for more ideas. Leaves, flowers, vege scraps. Frozen bloodworms. Bee Pollen.
