Thermometer advice

Recommended Posts

revolutionhope

Hi all,

as subject says - i want advice on what are good thermometers and where to get them please :-) the most important thing for me is to get an accurate room/ambient temperature thermometer (actually i want 2 - 1 for either end of my room. advice on a good "in tank" thermometer would be appreciated too but i am on a budget so this is less of a priority.

thanks :-)

love n peace

will

I use the glass J shape thermometers that hang on the tank, sold by our sponsors. However I always check them by comparing them to a scientific mercury thermometer from work as any thermometers i've bought for aquaria tend to be + or - 1 or 2 degrees Celcius out. I just make a note of the difference and use as normal.

      Greetings good folk of SKF,
      I'm interested to know what people's experiences are with keeping shrimps at higher than normal temperatures?
      My cherry cull tank had to endure temperatures between 28-35 for several days in a row this summer. All remaining berries were dropped at this time but some of them seem to be in good health still, while others have perished. There are a few batches of juvies in there at the moment and as they mature I am just curious whether the survivors were to breed again and then later generations were forced to survive the summer again and the process repeats over the course of a few years etc etc then to what degree might it be possible to breed a cherry shrimp at is "built for aussie conditions"?
      Keeping shrimp cool can be an expensive and/or hobby-killing exercise and in my opinion it would be a great thing for them to comfortably survive temps in the low 30s (or higher).
      I also know that the person i got my CRS from have told me that they had handled 28C safely at least for short periods. The ones that I got from him coped with several afternoons that reached 27 even briefly reaching 28 - and breeding didn't seem to be effected at all. Could anyone guess how much further the envelope may be pushed?
      love n peace

      hey all,
      i'm just hoping to get some quick feedback/advice on what is the ideal temperature to keep bee shrimp aquariums to facilitate optimum health and frequency of bonking and baby survival :-)
      cheers :-)

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
