The last Pinto Bee is freaking awesome.

On a side note, Chris Lukhaup takes good photos too.

Damn, those patterns are sweet. How and what would you selectively breed to get those I wonder.

Those patterns are amazing! They will probably be producing lighting bolts, stars etc soon enough ;)

I reckon I could have tanks in my house if they come with stars and rainbow colours. My wife couldn't possible say no then. Unfortunately they are relegated to my parents place until that happens or hell freezes over.

The photo is by aquashop maroshi, Japan. Guess what they used for crossing? This one:

I have seen wild Tiger shrimp with back stripes like this, but one Japanes hobbyist said it's possibly "Neocaridina denticulata sinensis" = today called neocaridina heteropoda (!) which also is found in Asia in the wild.

This one is bred by Michael Nadal (Germany). I guess somebody removed his copyright label when uploading it to the photostream.

Amazing Tiger-Shrimp ;)

I agree we should remove pics that aren't adequately referenced to it's creator. I'd be mad if someone used my photos as their own too.

Is that Akadama soil I see?

Can we get Akadama soil here? I found aquaclay but I don't think it's quite the same.

No, Akadama is warm brown, and has different grains. This one possibly is ADA AMAZONIAII, or Shirakura Red Bee Sand.

      The Brita filters "reduce" but doesn't completely remove chlorine, and other minerals.  Its okay for drinking but still lacking for aquariums.  multi stage cartridge undersink filters are also designed for human consumption, and one of the stages is to add alkalinity back into the water, since drinking water below pH 7.0 will be bad for your teeth. You want to look for an RO filter that gives you the option of turning on/off this alkalinity stage if you want a system that is both for an aquarium and for human consumption. Check out Filters System Australia https://www.filtersystemsaustralia.com.au/reverse-osmosis-water-filter/aquarium-systems.html. Ring them and talk to them if you can't find exactly what you want. They are very helpful.

      Hey guys, ive being think about this for a while, but BICON makes it seem so difficult and confusing to import freshwater plants from other countries into Australia. Has anyone done this before and know all the nooks and crannies? Im also not too sure about import permit costs, and the inspections and how they work. Could anyone show me a simple step by step guide to importing aquatic plants? thanks

      I tried Brita JUG (and still  have it) but it didn't work for the shrimp (It did reduce TDS but not much), though I was keeping Caridina shrimp. I would say don't bother wasting tme with other makes as you don't really know what they remove so just get the zerowater and you know it produces RO equivalent water and removes probably ALL things bad for shrimps. It is meant for human consumption but I am not convinced such pure water is ideal for humans except for hydration during excercise maybe?? As you plan to keep cherry shrimp you could try it but I would try just a few shrimp in a bowl for a few days to a week first. If the brita doesn't filter out something like copper (? just an example) or other toxic to shrimp things then you don't want to have contaminated the soil/tank etc. It may even be a better idea to get both, the brita for personal use and the zerowater just for the tank, https://www.amazon.com.au/ZeroWater-10-Cup-Pitcher-Filtration-System/dp/B0073PZ6O0 I just found this when I did a search for 'zerowater australia' that will show you the difference, just look at the 'which water filter is best?' page: https://www.yourbestdigs.com/reviews/zerowater-vs-brita/#which-is-best  Simon

      So you can do it just through fine filtration? How would zero water co compare to something like this or even multi stage cartridge undersink filter you think? https://www.bunnings.com.au/brita-filtered-water-tap_p5090423 I am trying to figure out what is best for human drinking as well as fishtank but maybe this is two different things? thanks for your wisdom, have a great day sub

      I use tap water through this jug and it produces the same as RO water, TDS 000 hence the name They are readily obtainable around the world (amazon, ebay and some countries UK/USA in shops) and cheap enough. They are slow to filter though so probably not practical for a very large tank. You could start with one though and if everything  goes to plan with the tank then get a full RO down the line. Each filter does about 100L of MY water. https://zerowater.co.uk/?variant=48184661572 You will need to re-mieralise the water with GH/KH+ as you would with RO water! Simon
