Jst been through ths old thread and it was very interesting and a lot of great photos. I like the simplicity of the tank now, it must make seeing the shrimp a lot easier?

Would love to read an update of where you are now with it all, and what shrimps you have now?

It’s easier to see the shrimp I don’t have anymore LOL.

Suffered massive losses and left this to its own devices.

There has been a handful of shrimp make it though and just now have 4 or 5 berried females on the go.

 

BB, CBS, Tibee and Misch all running amok!

Interested to see what you get from that big mama.

Are you expecting Red bolts ? Or is that tank a mix, and you might get a hybrids.

I started with TB, CRS, CBS, BB and some misch in divided racks and then they got mixed when the shrimplets made it through the dividers. No plans at all at the time when that happened. Last I saw coming through were some nice BB and now this from the offspring.

      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...........
