Pictures of Sulawesi Biotope

Recommended Posts

I came across this Japanese website that shows the biotope of Sulawesi shrimps.

Thought you guys with Sulas would be interested. (Need Google translate to English).

      Before I get to the main purpose of this thread, I've had a burning question for a while, how do you tell a Red (brown Heritage) apart from just a normal Red? (same for blues). Is that something you can only know by knowing the breeding line, or is there some tell in the shrimps coloration?
      --
      So I ordered a second batch to mix with the 10 I started with, they came sooner than I expected. I'm not quite done adjusting the TDS, but it's close enough. (man shaving the last 60ppm or so off is hard though, I think I'm going to have to do a fairly large change to get bellow 200). 
       
      The bag(s) were very mixed, and many are lower grade than advertised. I'm not sure if I feel a little annoyed or not, I don't intend to breed them, but I know that they will eventually breed and dilute the brighter red ones I already have. On the other hand, there are some interesting shrimps in there. A couple of bluish ones, several that are a dark brownish red, and one that is fairly brown with a long white stripe down its back. If nothing else, if I ever do get into breeding them I guess I'll have genetic variety on my side...
       
      Anyway, I'm trying to nab pictures of them to get help identifying their colors?

      I just want to give a big thank you to @JPN07: it has been -4 degrees Celcius in Canberra the last 2 mornings. He posted Sulawesi Cardinals 2 days ago from the West Coast. With his ingenious double-heat pack-sandwich insulation packaging, the shrimp were at least 24 degrees Celcius in the esky when I got them. I went to check on them just now and they are all happy and foraging a few hours after arrival. Thank you so much for the generous extra ?

      Guys, I will be the first to admit that I should have bought those Cardinals at the auction last night. My tank is not yet ready.
      If a guy on Gumtree raises them in tap water and @JPN07 has bred and adapted them for easier keeping here in Australia,  is there anything else that interested potential keepers should know apart from adding Sulawesi shrimp salt and off we go?
      Do you need special rocks or substrate, or specific types of blankets of algae? Do they eat normal shrimp food? They are classified as a very hard shrimp to keep and I would just like to find out why. Do they kick the bucket for the slightest change in water parameters like small water changes? I have looked at their habitat and taken a mental note that they like to hang out on the underside of hanging rocks, but can it really be that easy?
      I have seen photos of setups that look like they were staged for National Geographic, and then I have seen For Sale ads where the tanks look more like swamps with a phosphate problem there is so much algae in it, but it is filled to the brim with babies. What works?

      G'day Simon, Thank you for your reply. I cannot understand why if Java Moss is so quick and easy to grow.  It is expensive to buy. I already have Red Cherry & Blue Cherry Shrimps. I am soon going to get some Yellow ones.The Substrate I have is Black Sand and ADA Amazonia. I also placed small walnut size stones in one corner so that the shrimps can hide. Cheers Perry

      O KGot it thank you Perry

      Hopefully you will get the new shrimps later this week, exciting stuff! They grow fairly quickly! The babies will feed off the sponge so it doesn't surprise me to hear they like it there. Pleased to hear it is going so well! Simon

      The babies are showing up more and more, they really  like to hang out on the tiny driftwood on the right side, under the sponge filter. I’ve been using your suggestion, and using my pipettes to blow some of the Baby Shrimp, Shrimp Fit into that area when dosing the Glasgarten mixture. The shrimp have not yet arrived, this place doesn’t ship overnight, and the were shipped yesterday. The galaxies my buddy ordered on this order were still in quarantine until yesterday, so it delayed shipping. However, I will give this fish supplier  credit, as I’ve never had a casualty from them from anything I’ve ordered, and they throw in plenty of spares( 2-3 on average). They also offer a DOA refund policy. I anticipate them being here Friday or Saturday.

      Have the new shrimps arrived yet? Hope you are still seeing plenty of  baby shrimps! Simon
