Thank you guys. TDS is 130ppm. μs is I think german unit for the same value as ppm :)

Those are striata "yellow cheek". This genetical trait is less agresive than original striata :)

µs = slack shorthand for µS/cm which is the units for Electrical Conductivity (EC).  The most common conversion from EC to TDS in salty solutions is  TDS =  0.5 * EC, so in this case 250-270 EC = 125-135 TDS (in ppm)

Great looking snails!

So an update. Whole striata population exterminated due to accident (I tried to sterilize aqua because I tought that leeches are present). No3 rose up to 50. All of that begun with death of one tylomelania. After 3 months I found out that leeches were actually kind of planaria and hydra. After no planaria overdose both planaria and hydra died. Only 5 denerli were still alive but those 5 starts to reproduce recently and youngligs seems to be strong and happy :)

I made some changes in tank. Whole soil has been changed. Recently Ive got ground filter connected to external filtratio tetra ex600 plus. Filter is covered by matrix, big size rocks (white) with Onyx (found onyx sand in Poland). Aditives: tourmaline bc and clear carbo from ada, beninachi beemax plus, mironekuton and shirakura, bettaglucan from glassgarden and mosura sea mud. Added chihiros doctor shrimp65db63b0f3e3fbb7013633233ce4b453.jpg

That's a shame about the striata. 

At least your dennerli are coming back. 

Did any tylomelania snails survive?

Yep. One adult and one juvenile. New striata will come next month hopefully :)

Nice sulawesi shrimp. But what you call striata are spinata, there is not such thing as the striata spinata, the striata is a totally different type of sulawesi shrimp, the striata have red and white stripes running the entire length of its body...

Guys can any of you identify this creature? It seems to be hunting but snails and shrimps and even fish seems to ignore it

Ok so those creatures (probably leaches) has been exterminated finally. For those with same problem overdose whole tank by 3-4 times higher ammount of no planaria. After week at night check your tank for adult creatures and take them out manualy

Did the No Planaria have any adverse effects on the dennerli or the Tylomelania? I had the black leeches introduced to my Sulawesi tank with some black spotted tylos. I have been fighting them for months now. I am in U.S.A so it took a while to get no planaria.

      It must have been an aluminium heatsink. The Indium in Liquid metal will eat through aluminium. Only copper or nickel plated heatsinks can be used with liquid metal. It says so on the packet, at least my pack of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut does.

      I will try to add all the old tank's shrimps at the end of August to the new tank, had a problem with my chiller this morning, try to make it more efficient by adding a better heat sink grease, I added a liquid metal grease, apparently you can't add liquid metal, when heating up, the heat sink turning to dust, along with part of the cooler inlet and outlet. So far the shrimps are ok.

      I have had the new shrimps a week and have ordered some new ones(10) for delivery friday. There are probably at least 6 of the 8 alive (they may even all be alive still) but as the tank is so densely planted it is difficult to tell, but I saw 2 black and 2 red this morning, as yesterday, but I'm sure 1 red and  1 black weren't the same as the ones I saw yesterday so there are probably at least 6, if that makes any sense??? Anyway that will be it for now and I will just let the tank and shrimps do there thing once this batch are in there in a couple of days, and I can get back to the usual routine as was, before this unfortunate event wiped out the last lot. All parameters are good, including the nitrates now, but there are a lot of brown patches on the plants and moss balls still......... It all looks a bit drab and uninspiring and brown!!! I probably just need to be a bit more patient? I will do some maintenance tomorrow and a small 2L water change, then the new shrimps will go in on friday after acclimatising. The shrimps were totally uninterested in the spinach or shrimp lolly I put in at the weekend but I am assuming they have so much biofilm at this stage that that is keeping them busy and well fed and they are staying under cover until they get used to their new environment and this strange ugly monster that keeps peering in at them through the glass from time to time? I guess if some 100ft tall bloke kept peering through my window a few times a day I would be a bit nervous/reserved shall we say? I removed the spinach and the shrimp lolly and put the shrimp lolly in the betta tank and within minutes there were 10 shrimp on it so there was definitely nothing wrong with that shrimp lolly!

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.
