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.

      How low does this substrate buffer, inknownit isn’t an exact science, but has anyone had experience? The PH has parked at 6.4-6.5.

      Hah! LOL, how did I know. If I was going to put a bet on one or the other, it would be the rocks from Phillip Island ... from the beach. How to test? do the vinegar test. Take out a bit of gravel, and a small stone. drop some vinegar on them to see if you get a reaction. Alternate test is to put them in a cup of water. Test the water GH and KH before adding, then test again after a few hours to see if KH and GH have increased.

      ahh shoot. gravel was washed about 20 times thru, and rocks were boiled. gravel was sold as aquarium safe gravel, but the rocks were from phillip island, along the beach... how could i just test 1 or 2 to see if that's why? (they're all the same type, but i have a few big ones that r heavy and a bunch of small ones that i can test with)
    • jayc
      That means you have something else in the tank that is leeching carbonates - like a rock, or gravel or shell grit.

      eek! I've been trying to reduce the hardness for a few weeks since i noticed it was high. I'm in melb, and my tap water is relatively soft, but it doesn't seem to make a difference to the hardness when i do water changes. I've been doing up to 40% weekly (on average maybe 30%) but have barely seen improvement... I'm using water that's already at about 23 degrees from tap, would it make a difference if I used just cold? (I've only measured cold tap, not heated as i didn't think it would be different). Otherwise if I could get RO from somewhere would that help? Thanks!
