More and more people are keeping them. They are becoming a lot more affordable too. There are even rumors of people breeding them in tap water and cherry like parameters. So maybe in another few months they will go from the 100 ea to 50 ea.

I need another tank!

Don't worry @jayc I'm in the same boat :crying: 

@Disciple They are differently getting cheaper and more readily available. Apart from cost, its the temp require or around 28 that holding me back. But if like you say, if their breeding in tap water (don't know why you would risk it) that would be a good thing

Temperatures in Australia makes it easier and cheaper to keep a tank warm, than it is to chill it. A heater is so much easier and cheaper to buy than a chiller.

 

Let me know when anyone has a pair for sale @ $50 ea.

I have an empty tank waiting to be filled.

You are probably starting to see more as it's getting into Summer and breeders are prepared to ship them rather than ship in winter and risk DOA. More should equate to cheaper one would think.

Well these guys are 6+ generation tank bred here in aus.

I have found they guys pretty easy to keep as long as wp are all good like any shrimp.

My water parameters for these guys are-

ph 8.2

tds 200

temp 28.5

They live in a 45cm cube,with 3cm coral sand base,2cm crushed scorpion on top and some lava rock features,running a 1000ltr canister filter,double sponge and heater/chiller..algae growth for them to graze is most important.

      ok thx, will wait indeed for the tests NO3 NH4 & copper. Okho stone don't add anything in the tank. I have had them for years now. Checck this interesting video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=9fbHSeHhyIg&feature=emb_logo PH has always been stable around 6.3

      I wouldn't do anything that drastic at this stage and get the Ammonia and nitrates tests, even if you start it off again you won't have the testers to know where the cycle has progressed to, or if it is working etc!  I had a problem when I added stone to my tank, and the PH increased, I assume triggering a new cycle from less harmful ammonium to the more harmful ammonia? Has your PH increased at all since the tank was set up with the dragon stone, I think that increases PH?  Simon

      For this part what should I do? Empty totally the water and restart cycle? And clear external filter? Should I remove the roots also: they potentially still have treatments left inside de wood? I rechecked the Nitrite value and it's less that 0,01 Could it be either Nitrates &/or Ammonia issue ? Thanks for your help

      I see that seller sells the JBL Pro scape, it is made in germany I think. Thats the one I will stick with in future! They certainly have a huge variety to choose from? Simon
